It arrived! All essential pieces there, although I am missing two ronin (but have 18 extra spearmen ...).

Another parcel also arrived, a nice Christmas present I ordered for my little big sister (still have to find something for my big big sister and my little little sister, and my little brother).

Re: I smiled because...

The mayor of a small town in France decrees the obligation "to be in joy" for a week in October, with the occasion of a local festival. No sad music, no books that end sadly for the locals...So far I have only heard of the right to pursue happiness, not the obligation...

<< «produire des endorphines, les hormones du bonheur, en riant au moins trois fois par jour».>>
He orders people to produce endorphines, the hormones of happiness and to smile (at others) at least three times a day. LOL. Great order. Why only one week a year?

The population of that town is 9000 now. Let's check again in July 2020.

For those who like me got an empty page with greenmoun's link: Here an other one.


Can a mod down size those photos of araqyl? They mess up this thread big time.

Darling mod 3wishes has taken the monsters out and replaced them with links. That's why the thread size is back to normal.

Re: I smiled because...

They're after me again today. The phone rings constantly. Health insurance? They're wasting their breath this year, apparently it will only rise 0.2% in 2020.

The reason I can still smile is I give up this phone-number for good in 6 days.
