The Old Masters – re-interpreted 85

Good morning all – not forgetting my Antipodean visitor to whom I bid a very good afternoon….and of course those sleepy heads in the Americas to whom I shall shout loudly and irritatingly. “A-wakey wakey! ! ! This is no time to be laying about in bed. We have an Old Master to molest and misinterpret.”

It’s time to put our thinking cap-tions on and today we single out a bloke with the eminently amusing name of Camille Pissaro.  I shall avoid all distasteful jokes about the ability of camels to whiz in a straight line. This is, after all, a very high class blog.

Oh Martha! How could you. You've lost your needle where?

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
