    Everything is possible, nothing is impossible.

    I was looking at some paintings the other night and I mentioned to the ‘curator’ that I was a painter (I’m on a ship with people trying to sell paintings that would disgrace a chocolate box).
    He asked if I was famous and I told him that I’d sold 20 more paintings that Vincent Van Gogh (which is true). He seemed impressed but I was less that overawed by his lack of knowledge on all things artistic. Van Gogh never sold a painting in his entire life (he did give one to his brother as unasked for collateral for a loan) and I’ve sold at least 20.

    What is fame?

    I’ll settle for a few informed and knowledgeable people appreciating my work and a billion in the bank.

    If you must dream dear Seumas (and I know that your do) – dream big.

  2. You just keep the lovely matron away from me, Seumas. I kinda like my dream world. 🙂

    Mr Gallacher, from memory I seem to remember that the matrons have been around for a very long time with you. Maybe they are not really matrons but some other demonic female friends that we sometimes need in times of delusion. Love the work but not sure about some of your recent Facebook music offerings. Please don’t post Kenneth mckeller next or I will need to stop Facebook and start twatting.
    Pleased you have now learned to use computers as I was getting bored by sending letters every year.
    Your old mate.

    • Master McCann, what a delight to have your monicker grace my blog page .. I would hope to se a flood of correspondence on here from you… the world needs the Down Under slant from another Scotsman.. ..You there, me here,.. we’ve got the planet sewn up basically,,The matrons of the type you refer to must be from another Master Gallacher .. I know what you talk of,, and my lawyers will back me up on that … :):) As for music , well , McKellar’s unlikely to feature here anytime soon… maybe I’ll get my rendition of Jon Bon Jovi up and running to an unsuspecting world .. :):)
