Playing a game again soon
Pieter Brueghel the Elder, Children's games
Last week Friday December 18th I had surgery and the plates and screws form a beautiful statement. So, I was off the air for a while. Thanks for your message and it means you can't do everything you want yet. So persevere.
We are sorry to hear that, like many COVID-19 patients, you suffer from fatigue and difficulty getting started. Do you still get physiotherapy?
good to you general working condition. Enjoy a nice walk or start cycling with a headwind. Enjoy a breath of fresh air and a hot chocolate at home.
Last week I spent a day at home for Christmas. Unfortunately I had to go into isolation afterwards. Tomorrow is the last day of the five. Error in communication. Five other residents also had to be in isolation after the Christmas visit.
After your quick departure from the nursing home, several more chess players came by. Among them is a certain Paul, competition and tournament chess player, member of two chess clubs. Well, unfortunately I couldn't handle a chess game with so much violence. He was soon gone. Also Piet, an old vice principal with dementia but a good chess player, gym teacher Jan, who has a very special view of the world, with a broken hip. Quite a nice group that was playing chess or checkers every evening at seven o'clock.
Dutch New Year's Eve sleeping
For now Jaap, keep your wits about you and practice walking, cycling and of course playing chess. Then we'll play a game again soon...
Happy New Year, you probably fall asleep like the rest of the country, halfway through, but you will probably be woken up at five to twelve.
