Greetings dear Barry,
The above may be mystic thoughts to some, but for me they make pretty good
sense. Chess-mate and then another round?
I am going to answer you with a one liner:-
The game stops when the paw-paw strikes the fan.
(A paw-paw is a big, soft, tasty tropic fruit. It can be pressed into a
pulp with bare hands. Using it sounds much better than using that four
With care and best wishes
