All Has Been Revealed.
I have to be honest, when I posted up Shall We Play A Game I thought I hadn’t left enough clues for you and it was going to be too hard to figure out my name. Happily, I needn’t have worried, as in the end the three clues I left were enough to lead the winner to the answer.
Your first clue, was a reference to the Sistine Chapel.
Initially, this doesn’t seem like much of a clue, until you dig into the work of Michelangelo. There were a few names that could have come from that reference; Moses, Luke, Jonah and others. The most well-known work in the Sistine Chapel is “The Creation of Adam”
Your second clue was disguised as a link.
If you click the one and only photo in my last post and follow the link, it fails to load. However, when you arrive at the broken link page you will see the clue in the address bar.
Finally, you can confirm your guess in the photo itself: This ones a bit cryptic.
In the bottom left corner of the birthday card in the photo, you will see the Roman Numerals CMXXX, which translates to 930. The cryptic reference between 930 and birthday, in my mind at least, translated to 930 years old. Type “Adam 930” or “930 years old” into Google, and the story of how Adam lived to be 930 years old comes up.
Some of you thought that my reference to “chest-nut”, was a clue to Chester, It wasn’t. This was completely unintentional; I can see how it would have led some of you astray though.
So, the mystery of my name has been solved, thanks all that took part in my bit of fun on the Internet. Congratulations go to Ryan over at Two Wheels To There, he managed to figure it all out, and confidently guessed my name.
Thanks to Dan at Daily Bikers for allowing me to use his gift sets as an incentive.
Now excuse me while I prepare the pigeons. They will need full bellies and a limber up before their flight to mainland USA… maybe I’ll organise a stop over for them in Hawaii.
It’s a long flight after all 😉
