One man & his Stradivarius


The English comedian Tommy Cooper, now long deceased, had a great joke about a Rembrandt & a Stradivarius, which MB may have told you all in the past. If he did, he now tells it to you again. It’s out & out MB’s favourite joke.

Man walks into a pawnbroker with a violin and a painting. Good news says the pawnbroker – you have a Rembrandt and a Stradivarius. Unfortunately, Stradivarius was a very poor painter, and Rembrandt made awful violins!

Anyway, MB is off to Maastricht in Holland next week, where he will hear and see a Stradivarius. A real one. One made by Stradivarius. Not by Rembrandt!

MB is taking his mom to see Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra in AR’s home town of Maastricht in the south of Holland, next to the Belgian border. AR concerts are spectacular affairs and very visual, so MB will go a bit crazy with his camera (as usual). And he will do his damnest to take one or two decent videos. But decent videos are very much in the lap of the gods with MB, as MB has got to be the worst videographer in the entire universe. Anyway, he’ll give it a go and maybe you will all get to see the results.

MB is unsure why he is writing this post. Normally, he springs his adventures upon you all without forewarning, to collective inhalations of breath and gasps of amazement. But MB has spent the last hour or two watching AR vids and feels like sharing his news and a vid with you all. It’s as the Gods have willed it, it seems. MB has watched 4 entire series of ‘Vikings’ in the last few weeks, so ‘the Gods’ are also on MB’s brain a lot!

Enough of your rambling MB.

Ok ok lads. Ciao for now.

Be in touch.
