Ah ha! Now we know more. Left a comment on Miss Taylor 4 U.

RIC disse...

I never said I wouldn't tell...
In the second half of July there's a rather long text about me - in English. You may read it, if you feel like it. I do like it very much. I enjoyed writing it.
I'll be right over...

Fourhorsemen disse...

Well..into the time machine we go. See you in week three of July

Fourhorsemen disse...

Back from the past (July). Familiar with the Requiem piece. Have heard it done live.

Time to take a nice hot bath

I deleted two comments with spelling errors and reentered them.

RIC disse...

I guess I would have done the same... Well, in English I think I wouldn't delete a comment if the fault(s) weren't too serious... I have the excuse of being a foreigner... But not in Portuguese! Ever! No way! It would be far too embarassing to me...
Hope the reading wasn't too shocking: I just remembered some details right now...

4-Horses disse...

The past was not too shocking. But smoking is not good for you!!! You need to take care of you!!! We need all the good gay men we can get. I am warped out and ready to crash. Working on the next painting blog. Did a hot little
bit for it with multiple images of a brazilian guy.

also on Liz on the Sacred Heart, if you click it a hidden surprise opens up.

need to look at the french you last wrote and try to figure it out on a clean brain tomorrow.

Cheers -- 4-Horses

4-Horses disse...

Don't tell anyone. It is a secret.

Joel disse...

This was fun.

Joel disse...

4 horsemen and 4 horses. hmmmmm

Kapitano disse...

Are all Brazillian men hot? Or do we only see the ones that are? Or do I just think all men are hot? Ha!

RIC disse...

Well, Will, I guess I am to blame for staying away so long - almost all Saturday... As the British say, I feel a little bit under yhe weather... Hope it will be over soon. Enjoy your Saturday! Mine's gone and I didn't even notice it...

RIC disse...

Hello Captain! Welcome back!
Answers:
1. No.
2. Mostly, yes.
3. That is up to you to find out, I believe.
Don't worry too much! Enjoy your weekend!

Rian disse...

What??? You don't belive in magic? That's a pity.

Being an illusionist and knowing many secrets, I still "belive" in magic.

I love when children have that look of reverence, and refer to you as "le magicien".

I love the look on other adults' faces when they've seen a good magic trick and you can read in their eyes that they're refusing to believe in magic, but at the same time they can't explain what they saw.

"Ganz bestimmt gibt es Zauberer, aber wir lernen leider nur die Lehrlinge kennen" (Zitat: Art van Rheyn)

RIC disse...

You know the craft, Rian, so you know best.
All I know is that I'm a poor rationalist right now, not feeling especially well. But as far as children's illusions are concerned, I am proud of never having told any that Santa or Baby Jesus did not exist.
Tja, dann muss ich mit Art van Rheyn bestimmt einverstanden sein, oder?
Alles Gute für dich, lieber Rian!

Gumby disse...

Ric, if I did the calculations correctly, you qualify as a hobbit!

RIC disse...

Hello Gumby! Well, I guess I'm not so sure about those calculations...
For what I've seen on your blog week after week, I assure you I do not qualify at all. But then again it's your decision, it's all up to you in the end... Maybe one day you'll enlighten me on those figures...
All the best for you!
