Hello! Remember me? I’m still around…
Here’s a quick gag for you…
Meanwhile, in real life, I’m back on display- this time an exhibit featuring artists local to the Staffordshire Moorlands/Peak District. Hopefully something will sell before the pictures have to come down again…. Here’s a page from the gallery brochure for this season…
Well, the last re-incarnation was a bit of a flop but I think I’m going to be okay this time.
I’m an Archduke! I’m called Franz Ferdinand (just like the band)!
Best of all I’ve escaped an assassination attempt so surely I’m in the clear!
Earlier this morning I was out with my dear wife in our chaufer-driven limousine, enjoying the sights of Sarajevo when some fool threw a grenade at us. Luckily his aim was not true and he ended up detonating the poor couple in the car behind!
Naturally, we continued on to the soiree at the Governor’s house. Great fun. My wife insists that we should go and visit the survivors of this morning’s attack at the hospital so it’s back to the car we head now…. I suppose we should let the bodyguards know about the changed itinerary but I’m sure everything will be fine without them.
At a time when pirates clad only in their underwear are running rampant in our fair city, I urge you all to be ever-vigilant.
All pirate sightings should be reported to the Police Department or in the case of Lady Pirates please just take a photo and call me on my personal number 555-2368. (There is a very cryptic clue here as to what on earth is going on)
With normal service (almost) restored I can reveal that we will shortly be setting sail on a most glorious adventure.
Join me as soon as I can think of something to write about in Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic, ….
