Of time and history

Prompt  ….

This week’s photo is provided by Iain Kelly. Thank you Iain.

The old man ran to escape the two  horse-riders. 

The men were just a few paces behind and as the one ahead leaned to catch him – the pursued man raced in to the sea and soon was racing over the water towards the ship in deep water.

One of the men followed him till his horse stopped when the water reached its neck. However, the man leaped in to the water and swam after the old man. The horse-rider caught hold of the old man’s cape just as he was climbing the ship’s side.

Who was the old man, Baron?

He was the ‘old-year’ fleeing to meet the ship that would take him to history.

You mean you nearly caught hold of ‘time’, exclaimed one of the listeners enjoying the Baron’s tales.

You are telling taller and weirder tales in your old age, Baron – commented the Brigadier.

The Brigadier entered the salon and saw the pianist burrowing in to the piano. He rescued the pianist, gave him a glass of water and …….
Well, the Baron is a great adventurer but is a little reactive.
What happened?
He was telling us about his encounter with an Yeti in Tibet and how he kicked it across a mountain peak on its butt.
So ….
I dared him that it was not possible.
and he asked you to get up and face the piano………. the Brigadier giggled with tears rolling down his cheeks –  he detests pianist’s.

Baron’s tall tales

Prompt  ….

Thank you Barbara Taylor for supplying our prompt photo this week!

It looks like a city – buildings taller than trees. The inhabitants appear to be human but are strangely dressed. I wonder what is behind those large glass doors.

I was chasing the tiger and then I fell down a rabbit hole ……… and found myself in this place. What year is this …… 1895 or 1894.  How shall I narrate this adventure?  A better view would help. If this was real jungle I could have climbed a tree but how to climb these steep buildings.

Finally the Baron found his way across the river and watched the skyline from a bench. It is Utopia from here.  All of a sudden the sky darkened, the winds thundered and lightening streaked the dark sky.

The Baron found himself back in the jungle. He had just shot the tiger ………

Back at home in 1896.

So where have you been this time? Brigadier asked.

I have been to another planet – the houses were taller than trees and the wild animals carried muskets……

The Brigadier and Baron were in the polar camp. Unable to talk outside, they sat gossiping in one of the globular camping-structure by an electric-fire.
Baron – This place is colder than the ninth hell.
Brigadier – Hove you been there, Baron?
Baron – Unfortunately yes.
Brigadier – Beneath the giant’s feet …. for betrayal.
Baron – I would rather not talk of it.
Brigadier – OK (was silent for a few moments). How do you know this place is colder?
Baron – Coz here we need to de-freeze our words in front of a fire while there I could hear the shrieks of my companions.

The Sunday Yarn ~ Brigadier’s Search

Prompt ~

315

Copyright Joe Owens 2015

*

The Brigadier was looking for a wooden statue that could be displayed in his front portico. The Baron accompanied him, though he had little interest in such matters; as he had nothing worthwhile to engage him.

In one of the galleries, the art dealer asked them to accompany him to the basement. It was full of antique items – furniture, clocks, coins, stamps, statues, etc.

I have a couple that suits your need.

The two Bs looked them over. Finally the Brigadier spoke – These are damaged pieces …. they have been emasculated.

Sir, there are only few pieces of such antiquity that have not been so damaged and they are in the museums.

Who did it and why?

Missionaries! A number of church people petitioned the government against indecent carved figures in nineteenth century, Sir.

The Baron who had been surprisingly silent said – a fig leaf would have sufficed if these had been carved out of White Ash-wood.

The Baron & the Brigadier

Prompt –

2015-03-16 - BW Beacham

Finish the story begins with: “A body suddenly crashed through a plate glass window at the Brigadier’s house.”

A body suddenly crashed through a plate glass window at the Brigadier’s house.

Baron smiled and said “I told you General”.

It is just Brigadier, friend”, the man reminded him.

On his way to the Brigadier’s house the Baron had come across a circus that was being set up adjacent to his destination and got an idea to play a prank on his friend. He fiddled with the human canon on the sly. At the house he had kept a watch on the circus through a telescope and warned his friend at the right moment.

The human-canonball soon got up and the Brigadier visibly relaxed.

You are still a school-boy at heart, Baron” the Brigadier said.
