Double (Triple) Play: Theme Thursday

When I read that play was the theme for this week's Theme Thursday, I knew I had the perfect picture.  The girls playing that their dolls are playing chess.

So, I couldn't resist playing around with it to add some chess trash talk. Picture a bunch of old guys in Central Park talking the smackdown,,,,,or fine Victorian ladies like these.

Many of you who know us, know that Ben is an expert rated chess player...plays in tournaments,  wins prizes, all that jazz.  But, did you also know that I was the 2001 Kentucky State Woman's Chess Bronze Medal Winner.  I won 3rd place/bronze Medal in the KY Women's Chess Championship.  I won't tell you however that there were only 3 women entered and I lost every single game.  Third place out of three..that's me!

Now, go seem some more playing around at Clan-Donaldson.

    This chess crosstable shows Amelia's greatest chess triumph as she crushes Nolly J. Gibbs into oblivion.

  8. Even better than the picture setup and the captions is the fact that one of the dolls has made her opening move. Priceless.
