Chess was a brief passion of mine in the early 1990s. At some point I lost interest; I’ll get into what happened to cause that in a later post. I picked it up again around 2019 and have been really enjoying it again.

The following picture was taken of me during an interschool competition in 1994 between Kings High School (my school) and Otago Boys High School.

Gobo Fraggle

I think I received this for Xmas around 1987. I actually wanted Mokey, but she was a girl and mum said only strange boys would want a girl teddy bear, so then I asked for Wembley, but she said that Wembley was a bit of a loser and that I actually wanted Gobo. I was still happy with Gobo though 🙂
