Steve Shaw BS: chess or bed making (31) RE: BS: chess or bed making 30 Apr 19


Way over forty years ago when we lived in London Mrs Steve and I often went to a restaurant in Fulham called The Gasworks. It was a highly eccentric place which had large framed paintings on the walls depicting animals and people having sex (and enjoying it), and you could enjoy a pre-dinner G&T in the lounge whilst playing chess using a highly pornographic chess set, each piece of which depicted a naked couple engaged in the kinds of athletic sexual activity that would put the likes of me in hospital these days. The food was brilliant.

I learned how to play chess but could never get good at it. I was top of the class in primary school but I was humiliated in the class chess contest by the class dunce who knocked me out by beating me in four moves. Haven't bothered with it since!
