Just saying.

What are you doing to celebrate?

I was going to cross the Danube and try and do some damage. However, a long-running game has me stuck just outside Hanau.

Damn….and I sent logs etc down the river to break up your pontoons.

As long as there is no burning mill…

Time to "Charge right home. Right home, mind."

Is "celebrate" the right word?

I think commemorate is more appropriate.

We fought that battle last Saturday (the 16th) at our first club game since the lock-down was eased. Using Commands and Colors, the Austrians won! I commanded the Austrian right flank and almost had my cavalry completely around the French flank when our victory conditions were met.

All day I've been looking at the date thinking "22 May, why do I know that date?"

I've only been researching A-E for the past year…

I originally read that as 21 years… wasn't Y2K bad enough but 1999 also had bloody napoleonic battle too.

Well, you know how slow Napoleonic communication was. Maybe they didn't get the message.

In honor, I will storm the refrigerator!

Better hope there isn't a bridge, or you are going hungry.

I'm hiding in the granary. A building that big should be reasonably safe?

I will pop the cork on a Anton Bauer 2017 Pinot Noir from Wagram.

Some people can live to be 105 or 106. That's only two people ago.

Use my heavy cavalry to hold the centre
