You know, if I hadn’t been watching, I’d swear someone had nicked a few days out of the week. Wednesday returned a little too quickly, but fortunately your humble (but quite vigilant) writer was not playing silly bloggers, and avoided being caught unawares.
This week we set to and lop some chips off the old Bloch – Carl Bloch to be precise, the Danish artist [Fission Chips, chips off the old Bl…… please tell me you get it]. Because Herr Bloch lived from 1834 to 1890 we know the poor fellow is deceased and won’t retaliate to any posthumous pummeling of his noble intentions…. Here then is “In a Roman Osteria” [for those who’d like to know – an osteria is a kind of a cheap Italian restaurant….. and I’m sure we all know more than one cheap Italian].
Tiddles, the moggy d’hôtel, is also clearly unamused.
