Painting the town of Sandwich and buying a useful manual - for flagellants - for my bookshop.

Here is the beginning of the watercolour painting of Sandwich Guildhall from the café over The Shop With No Name, I have added a 5p coin for scale in case anyone thinks that I am painting big pictures.


A photo for aspiring art critics.



Books Do Furnish A Room, don’t they? You know what is like when you go round to one your mates for a bevy and there is a beautiful bookcase, and then you approach it and the contents are boring boring boring and you think expletively. Don’t you? Particularly if the books are old ones, what? They should be knouted.


Flat Erick seemed very interested in this one and muttered something about, spare the rod and spoil the frog.





The C1880 edition will set you back about £15 or you could of course try kindling it, but this would mean you wouldn’t be able to display it on your bookshelves where your friends could see it, something that could lead to something else. 

I went on to buy Christmas underwear from M C Escher in Deal

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
