I was looking for some nice picture to share with you and found this one (a lovely gazelle) among the photos I once took in Israel in the Roman city of Beit-Shean. I hope you like it. Happy birthday!
So, this is the reason for my early message. I wish all my friends wonderful holidays!
One day I received a notification from FFnet that some new reader followed my story "Present for Alexander". It was a nice surprise since the story is more than one year old and I never planned a follow up. In that story I made Zeus and Hera gift Alexander with GPS for his birthday. Remembering this story with a wicked smile on my face I wondered what other marvels of modern technology Alexander and his Army would enjoy and which of the social media tools would be their favorite? After I played with several options, I came to the conclusion that though all of them would be popular, one in particular will be an undisputed front runner. Though today is not Alexander's birthday, it is, however, of my dear friend too_beauty. So, using this event as an excuse, I temporary usurped Zeus' powers and gifted the whole Macedonian Army, their native land and all the countries they conquered with a certain marvelous modern day technology.
The only thing left to do was to choose an appropriate occasion when Alexander & Co could demonstrate to the modern world what they were capable of. As you can guess from the title of this story, the chosen occasion happened to be the mutiny at Opis. It is said that Alexander, fuming at veterans who didn't appreciate his grand gesture of sending them home with magnificent gifts, retired to his tent. Ever wondered how did he spend his free time there?
If the answer is yes, please read on and enjoy!
