A Chess…Match? July 28, 2009

Posted by P J Sabados in Uncategorized.

Shai Ning decided the morning after the fire, it was time to start working on his lifetime wish, and invited over a ranked chess player to challenge.

Sandi and Shai Play Chess

He was a bit surprised when a young lady by the name of Sandi French showed up.  Before too long though, the match began, and Shai Ning was studying the board, thinking out his next game move.

Chess 1

 Chess 2

Chess 3


It was hard to tell sometimes whether Shai’s mind was more on the game… 

Checking Out the Competition?

or if he was more interested in “checking out” his competition.

Soon, Shai Ning called out “Checkmate”, announcing the defeat of his opponent.

Sore Loser?

Sandi did not seem to take this turn of events well.

Shai Ning was a gracious victor though, and he invited Sandi to come inside the house.

Shai and Sandy

For a moment, he stood there, not knowing quite what to say.



Sandi decided to share a juicy piece of gossip, and they began to chat.  Shai found out that Sandi is a party animal, and that she is also rich.  He asked about her job, and found out that she is a Shopping Music DJ. 

Suddenly Shai

Before he could ask more about her, Ian approached, wanting to join in the conversation.  At that point, Shai suddenly became shy.  Sandi acknowledged Ian, and then excused herself, saying it was time for her to leave.

Within a few days, Shai Ning decided to look for a job.  Perhaps it was coincidence, but he wound up working at the local grocery as a produce quality assessor.

Poor Shai! I hope Sandi comes back sometime. What is that thing over in the corner? It looks like a giant spider or something.

Maybe it’s a branch of some tree that is growing through the wall? 😀

You’re right. If you look at the outside pictures, you’ll see a tree planted very close to the house. It does appear to be growing through the wall. Apparently, when Krystal learned to prune her trees, she never learned to trim them so they wouldn’t grow through walls. 😛

How funny! I guess I’d better go look at all my trees at my house. That’s a sure way to get bugs in your house. 😉 Thanks for letting me know guys.
