The Old Masters – re-interpreted 179

Well that’s just not acceptable! Two weeks absence without a word; without so much as a by your leave! Leaving no one at the FFC helm while you, Dear Reader,  worry yourself sick – you are looking a tad peaky to be honest – over the the mercies and vagaries of the recent elections and stiffening joints through lack of use pummeling an Old Master.

Well, we’re back. So gently does it as you get into the swing of things.


Rodney is a little bewildered as he experiences speed-dating when the Lady In Waiting is in charge of things. “Madam, your Two o’ Clock is in the Drawing Room; Sir Cecil is amusing himself with a pastry chef and Count Alfonse is in the summer house awaiting your pleasure. Shall I send this one packing?”

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.

    Being a Saffrican and an Easlunnina I keep thinking the maid is saying Meddem I just see a tsotsi in the yad! He was stealing the mastas horse. Regarding Rodney-i do think the statue above him represents how er free he would like to be in the garden. And I wonder why the meddem is washing her hand in the fountain. Must have been eating KFC.
