I’m learning chess and discovered the MTR Chess Club, which meets at Manitowoc Coffee on Saturday mornings from 9 to noon. All guys except for me; I am of the female persuasion. So, here I am, a beginner and a Miss, but I get up on Saturday mornings and get my butt over there to do what I can: sometimes lose and sometimes win, but always learning. Then, the entire month of December, on Saturdays at noon, I next walked over to the library to sit in a comfy chair and recharge my wasted brain while listening to the ethereal tones of holiday music wafting from the balcony. Merci for that bliss!
