Checkers

Checkers what a game, I do not want to go down in a flame. You jump me, then I jump you as fast as can be. Fun for young and old, this I have been told. With coins in black and red, we can play until one is dead. Rethink your move, before I approve. Win-win-win, did I make your head spin.

Enjoyed reading your work. One game of checkers I will never forget when my husband's aunt came to live with us for awhile. She had been a school teacher so she was familiar with checkers. I asked her do you want to play a game of checkers with my grandson while I get a little work done? They started playing and I stayed for a minute maybe two to see how they would do. She would move my grandson's checker then she would move the wrong way, etc. I was laughing inside but remained calm. Congrats

Continued from above..She had dementia only at the time I did not know how bad until that game. She said after being corrected a few times, well, I used to could play checkers really well. Sad how the ill can slip up on us. Great choice of topics for the contest. Way to go with the win. SK
