The Old Masters – re-interpreted 177

What ho! Good visitors. Yet again we find ourselves in skin-of-teeth territory submitting the post while it is still Wednesday. This week heaval has been definitely in the upward direction and we at the Institute have had our work cut out for us. But no matter, we’re here and it’s time to lambaste another deceased painter.

This is another of those blokes who failed to leave a name or forwarding address – although he only really only has a choice of two places. See what you can come up with, eh?

“Come sir, no more quibbling. My word is my bond. I shall purchase your carriage forthwith. See, even now, I instruct my pigeon to place a sizeable deposit on it. They are specially bred for such tasks. I call them Stool Pigeons.

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.
