Update on the Barrasso Family

A while back we brought you the tales of our friend, the Blind Skier Dude.  Continuing that tradition, here is a recent story about one of our very good friends, Alex, who is the 5-time U.S. Blind Chess Champion, and has competed (and won) other chess championships around the world.
Alex's next tournament takes him to Greece (from his current home in Prague), and we're already warming up to be his biggest cheerleaders.  We're super proud of Alex.
Oh, and he happens to be the father of our Goddaughter, Valeria (pictured above), who is so adorable and getting so big we can't hardly stand it!
Go Alex, Brenda and Valeria!

I can't win a game of chess with my 20/15 vision! Wait, I take that back. I don't even know how to play chess.

So much for making it through the month of April without feeling pathetic.

I'm reading this post by the light of Alex's lamp...or what used to be his lamp until we bought it from him. Now that I know about his mad chess skills - I feel like this lamp's value just went way up. :)
