Between struggles with blogging posts today was spent on sorting cupboards; shredding and recycling documentation going back fifteen years; and making administrative phone calls. Unfortunately my shredder takes a rest every ten minutes or so.
There were no illustrations to https://derrickjknight.com/2021/11/13/a-knights-tale-63-a-course-and-a-change-of-position/ so I was able to post that late this morning.
I spent a considerable amount of time wrestling with transferring five scanned pages from Dombey and Son. In the event I gave up on the last one, to which I will return on another day. I don’t want to omit any of Charles Keeping’s superb illustrations.
‘They were all three put aboard the Son and Heir’
‘Mr Tootle, professionally clothed’
‘The little cavalcade drew near’
In ‘Mr Carker broke into a trot’ the dogs are the artist’s own embellishment.
This evening we dined on second helpings of yesterday’s Red Chilli takeaway meal with the same accompanying beverages.
