Tally Ho, forum brethren and sisters,
I’m on hols, but really I just wanted to make that topic because of the delicious pun on my biblical namesake. Jonah…Wales…?
Fear not! I’ve not been intercepted by a cetacean on the way to Ninevah, I’m just enjoying the sumptuous rural idyll of the principality next door.
So erm… Empires and Puzzles related…um feel free to share pics of stuff that relaxes you when summons, war matchmaking and loot get you hot under the collar.
Everything I know about relaxing, I’ve learned from my cat…
Enjoy your vacation Jonah, and I hope your birthday is bangin’
Recommend this topic for excellent wordplay… and excellent scenery!
No pics of what relaxes me this morning - short on time - but one minor correction.
Technically, Jonah was on his way to Tarshish when he had his unfortunate encounter with the local sea fauna. If he’d been on the way to Nineveh, the whale wouldn’t have been an issue, both because he’d have been obedient (not in need of correction) and because Israel to Nineveh is a landlocked journey, if my meager knowledge of ancient geography serves me well. Regardless, I’m pleased to know that our present-day Jonah is safely outdoors and above sea level.
Pedantry aside, enjoy your R&R. Looks lovely.
Pedantry to the fore!!
Also, here are the Bardlings enjoying today’s close encounter with a dolphin pod.
So we actually saw whales in Wales!!

I actually live in a place not so different. Rolling hills and farmland. Ours is broken up by more mature forest, though, so there’s not a good place to get a pic without flying.
Mostly retired, so I don’t have to bother with a long commute. I love my place.
Looks like you share a birthday with another famous writer
A lot of writers use pseudonyms.
Not that I’m confirming I
am Stephen King.
But if you send him a birthday card, I’d be ok with that.
@JonahTheBard Happy birthday! enjoy your vacation Great sights and that is definitely a good way to chill out from the ever-raging summons and bad luck
Obviously, as moderators, you and I don’t actually experience bad luck in the game. It’s really just to help the normals
I’m not sure if I should make a separate happy birthday thread. I’m so boggled right now.
Well, happy birthday!!!
I searched for images and found the following:
Bard Yard Cake
Owl Bard Cake
Bard Simpson Cake
Take your pick on which one you prefer.
Ahhh, blessings on your boggled brain, Kaffy.
And I appreciate the herd coming to bring me good cheer.
Wow, I see more than 0 cows on this picture

If you were here I’d crack out Kirk Douglass’ song “whale of a tale”. Cheers to you on your special day!
