I am reminded that life is a game and that the only way to lose is to give up. So as the pieces move around a chessboard one will have their wins and their losses. If one throws the board over shedding the pieces asunder then the game is lost.
I suppose that's what annoys my adversaries so much. I just keep hanging on. They don't know how I survive but I do.
There are a few tricks left in the old guy still.
