An unattended garden fills with weeds

Apparently I'm not the only one who is playing real bad chess right now. Don Q reports that he jumped back into tournament competition after a year long hiatus and achieved the worst performance rating of his life. He played so badly that one of his opponents accused him of sandbagging his rating for future events (ouch!!).

I guess the moral of the story is that you can't just do the circles, walk away and assume that the positive effects on your play will be permanent. Realizing this, Don (having recently completed his weight loss quest) has decided to get back on the saddle and ride again. That's right folks, the Knight of all Knights, the Man de la Maza is back!
