tagged V

Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had “U” (visit tagged U), so this week we have “V” – I’m sure you’ll find a story or a short reflection tagged with “V”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “V”!!! Myself I’ll feature “V” for discussing the term Vikings:


When “greenmackenzie” commented in my article https://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/vikings/: “I think we have lots of viking blood here in Scotland…”, I remembered that my mother lived at the Baltic Sea on the island Ruegen. So for sure some Viking blood also is in me; every time, when I enter our kitchen I feel the spirit:
tribute to Rembrandt, 1650
1 – “Fergiemoto” comments: “A unique portrait of yourself as you prepare for battle. Your helmet looks like a common kitchen tool, if I am not mistaken.
2 – Frizz-feedback: “Well sometimes my wife makes a dysfunction of my battle helmet and uses the thing for salad and noodles …”
3 – mezze: Last time I went out with a soup-pan on my head was in ’71, when I really, finally hád to walk my dog, hurricane or not, roof tiles falling down everywhere…
4 – ReyGey: Reminded me of images from World War 1
5 – Rob Hogeslag: Je krijgt er wel een plat hoofd van. (= You do get a flat head!)
6 – David Haggard: at first I thought you had taken the resonator out of your dobro.
7 – Leenda K.: I often say I have a head like a sieve…but never thought of you in that way!
8 – emrxgs: The model has stoic Mona Lisa quality!
9 – iceman75 (read below, from France): I’m not sure it will be efficient in a war, so let’s make peace!
Frappi & Frizzi: a tribute to Rembrandt

  1. Ah, what a lovely portrait of you. And your helmet is just so fashionable. 😉 Pity the wife who uses it as a kitchen tool. 🙂


  2. You are fantastic! And, you’ve made me laugh. One of our sons used to wear a plastic salad bowl on his head when he was little, he’d put it on and dash out the door to man the battle stations.


  3. i cracked up laughing when this came through the inbox!!!!

    thanks for a great smile, and reminder that i’m fashionably behind – thanks to zero internet progress in the daytime!

  5. Just love your Blogs and your helmut Frizz! After searching my library wildly I have decided that V is for……………http://vastlycurious.com

    Hopefully you will forgive the venial deed as it was done in true veracity and intended for some to live vicariously through the projected vignette of being just vastlycurious.


  6. you’re too funny frizz.. i love your helmet, hehehe!


  7. Hi frizz … this is seriously and adorably funny 🙂 but the play of light and shadow is perfectly beautiful!


  8. funny 🙂 For us, Viking came in Normandie to settle. Maybe this man on the beach ( https://icezine.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/week-42-wake/ ) had some viking parents….but not a beautiful helmet like you 😉 I’m not sure it wll be efficient in a war so let’s make peace 🙂

    You make out a great Viking Frizz. Love this shot! 🙂


  10. That is a brillant idea. A very cool hat for a very cool Viking. Oh, and the wall photo…just awesome!


  11. This is a really fine portrait.


  12. Lol awesomely funny, I loved your comments! Really great blog thanks for making me smile! 🙂


  13. The photograph – and the commentary – shine with a the character of a great personality – such a pleasure to meet the kitchen Viking in person. 🙂


  14. I love the hat. Wondered for a while (very short while) if I could do that for Ascot this year! Thanks for the laugh


  15. This could start a new trend – wear your kitchen gadgets with style. Such panache! (I think that’s almost a pun)

    Love the portrait: A viking with a sense of humor.

    • hi Myra in Singapore,
      you amused me with your MOZART quote: “A man of mediocre talents always remains mediocre, may he travel or not…” Mozart liked sarcasm! Also Karl Kraus, maybe even Sigmund Freud… – I like to watch news made in Vienna about Germany – of course they have more distance, skepticism and irony than the Germans talking about Germany …


  21. OK FT, it’s a bit of a stretch. My subject doesn’t start with a V but the first photo definitely features one! http://travelsandtrifles.wordpress.com/2013/05/28/moon-over-the-marshword-a-week-anglessunday-post-perspective/


  22. And BTW, LOL on your viking character!


  23. This is too funny, you managed to keep a straight face, that must be down to your Viking blood 🙂
    Great photo by the way, and I agree its about time we ditched Columbus as the ‘discoverer of America’.
    a) The Vikings beat him by centuries
    b) America didn’t need discovering as it was already there!
    Did you know that there are stone carvings of maize in Roslin Chapel ( just down the road from me) which pre-date Columbus’s visit by a couple of hundred years. It was built by the Knights Templar, perhaps they had some Viking relatives 🙂


  24. You are amazing, I loved it. Thanks and Love, nia


  25. You look ominous and very Viking-ish. 😉

    This was a hard one for me, Frizz. Next time around let’s do away with the letter V. Although I have a few weeks to think on it. 🙂
