I could have kicked myself earlier today, I had the ideal opportunity for a photo to fit this week’s PhotoHunt theme.  I had been playing the board game ‘Twilight Struggle’ which re-enacts the cold war struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union.

Twilight Struggle is a two-player game simulating the forty-five year dance of intrigue, prestige, and occasional flares of warfare between the Soviet Union and the United States. The entire world is the stage on which these two titans fight to make the world safe for their own ideologies and ways of life. The game begins amidst the ruins of Europe as the two new “superpowers” scramble over the wreckage of the Second World War, and ends in 1989, when only the United States remained standing.

Well on this occasion things didn’t go according to plan and I reached 20 victory points half way through the game which meant immediate victory to me and I was playing the Soviet Union!!!  I had thoroughly licked my opponent.  I didn’t think of photographing the event until I had put the game away.

I was left wondering what to post when the following New Years Message arrived on my mobile.  I am not quite sure what the sender is trying to tell me…

Curious Message

    Teehee… one letter can make such a difference, can’t it? Incidentally, while setting up my ‘lick’ entry for this week, noticed that ‘lock’ had been an earlier Photo Hunt theme. So maybe we’ll have ones for ‘luck’ and ‘lack’ at some point… ;b

  5. Oh well, that does it. That’s the very last time that I let my dog borrow my mobile phone.

    Ha ha! That sound like the Gendarme in ‘ello ello’ the old situation comedy about the french resistance in WW2.

    Anyway happy New year again and may you have lots of licks!

  10. Bull Rhino says:

    It does make you wonder???? Are you in need of good lick this year? I guess it depends on where it comes from huh.

    Have a great 2010. You can check out my licks here.

  11. Lisa says:

    My Sasha would wonder what was wrong with the message? It’s a perfect canine greeting.

    She ‘helped’ this week.

  12. Haha Cherie. Perfect timing!

  13. jameshigham says:

    Ah, so you’re a game player are you? :)

    • CherryPie says:

      Only in the sense of strategy board games which I am sure you knew already :-)

      But that ability would help if you knew something was right and wanted to play your cards to prove it ;-)

      I am sure that is a skill you could use right now with AA ;-)

    That is so funny – and great post for this weeks theme. I hope you have a great new year.

  15. :) :) Dare I say that’s better than licking your opponents?

  16. Haha! Lovely coincidence. Happy New Year, Cherie.
