Cheer up, tomorrow is Saturday

Everyone likes Saturday. You may choose traveling out of town, going shopping, watching a movie, fixing something on your house, or like me, bringing kids to a chess tournament. Wow, so many choices, you choose whatever you like. Maybe not entirely true. As I mentioned in another post, Abe’s basketball games are on Saturdays. Most […]
