After lunch I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2021/10/19/a-knights-tale-54-the-training-model/ from my laptop.
Later this afternoon Nick from Peacock Computers delivered my reconditioned iMac and transferred the links.
I then tried my hand at scanning five more illustrations from Charles Keeping to ‘Dombey and Son. Although I could, eventually, scan the images in the normal way I failed to edit the titles into the gallery. My Epson scanner and WP don’t seem to be on speaking terms. Maybe they will sleep on it.
Anyway, here we go:
‘Captain Cuttle sat looking at the boy’
‘Mr Dombey stood in his library’ is an ingenious depiction of a triptych.
‘Mrs Brown whipped out a large pair of scissors’
‘The dingy tenement inhabited by Miss Tox’
‘Paul would sit staring at this exemplary old lady’
Jackie spent the afternoon tidying the garden and produced
a number of photographs which do bear their titles in the gallery.
Before I could load these into my computer I had to restore 45,000 photographs which took so long that I broke for dinner, consisting of Jackie’s splendid chicken jalfrezi; garlic and coriander naan, and mushroom rice. I drank more of the Cotes du Rhone. The Culinary Queen had consumed her Hoegaarden while producing our meal – possibly taking her mind off my cries of anguish.
The further typing of repeated names to accompany the above text would be a bridge too far tonight.
