The 30th June! Just time to sneak this post in then.
I’m more than a little partial to the work of the artist Mackenzie Thorpe,
I’d been admiring his work for a long time before I discovered he is dyslexic. Funds don’t run to purchasing a print (but maybe they should)
although rare prints, like the one below, Destiny’s Child would be well out of range.
If I get chance I do like to have a calendar featuring his images, above my desk. But this years image for June has had me a little perplexed. Bonfire night in June?
I can only think it is because the company that produces the calendar is a German company that they don’t get the social references, and that led them to put an image about bonfire night, in June’s slot! Although the title of the image above ‘5th November AM’ should have given them a clue.
Of course you wouldn’t expect the ashes of a bonfire on November the 5th, AM would you? Surely, that should be the 6th November? Unless some rival gang of kids scuppered your bonty, the night before, they obviously weren’t guarding it properly.
