  moronovich: Hi <Fusilli> !

I was doing the four corners,USA, back in 78 and on our way we stopped at Vegas. Sleeping in the car,friendly married couples who gave us some food tickets for a restaurant they have won,used 3-4 dollars on the slut machines,a couple of coffes(+ free water) and a total of ca 5 dollars each !

And how are things going with your son ?

IŽll send all my prayers.

May-26-19  Granny O Doul: I confirmed for my own satisfaction that it is mate in all variations after 20...Kxf5, but I won't spoil anyone else's fun.

Anyway, yeah, nice excavation!
