retired after 32 year at GM in factories spent most of the time as a union rep.it was a rewarding job helping other and dealing with the many labor issues but came with a lot of pressure and not much time for relaxing. i rodeoed for 10 to 12 year this was my way of a pressure release plus i really liked it but its a young persons sport.i also played a lot of chess in my younger years a time before computers made it to a masters leval at 17 played in tournaments got trophies and such and got to a point where i thought i was really great till one day i played a grand master in Jackson miss. always loved playing these guys never won thou but always played player that could beat me helped me improve my game. anyway this master and it cost a hundred $ to play a lot of money for me with a chance to get 500 $ he played five at a time well he won all games and did it in very few moves it was embarrassing you see he was blind folded on a timed game at that to get beat by a blind guy grand master r not it took me down off my high horse after the games he said something to me that stuck he said your a good player but i never lose. yea right i know that there aint a horse that cant be rode and a cowboy that cant be threw.he said when i lose i go study that game till i see why i lost then i gain from it so in fact i won something from it.i have used that bit of knowledge a lot just a brief conversation with this man helped me.i use it in wood working craft i make some things that well to say the least its not square.i just keep trying and there are many masters on this site and i,m learning a lot from them. found this later in life seems to be almost addictive wish it was sooner but its fun and relaxing.
