i hsve just awakened and had the rhree S': a shit, a shower and a shave.
To my unbounded joy, yesterday Esther brought my DVD WITH My lrne Farmer videos. the Vae Victis games on the victories of Marshal de Saxe arried as well!The video's for "Libertine" and "pourvu qu'elles soient douces" are wonderful and trigger a renewed interest in the 18 th century..let one note, though: the unifforms in "Pourvu qu' elles soient douces" are wrong. .according to the story they are Brritish infantry anno 1757, but i reme mber from the Funcken books it is the uniform of the French Swiss Guarda (Gardes Suisses) anno 1789.this is the. Uniform they wore when they were massacred by the Paris mob defending the Tuileries. i hope the books by L. Et F. ' s hope thr books by L. Et f. Funcken are next. They are soo good. Now for anotger day of therapy. please excuse me for this nerd-attack (the correct word is nerdgasm).
an 18th century Frank
Thousend times thanks!
To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,
On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther
