Necessity makes even the timid brave.


In part two of our reconstruction of the rise and fall of Italian Fascism [set against the backdrop of a wet and wild Seven Mile Beach], here Henry, Ezra and Jen discuss the failures of the Italian army in North Africa.

Ezra blames the poor quality of the pasta.

Jen blames the poor quality of the vino.

Henry blames Ezra and Jen.

I, as Victor Emmanual III, blamed ill health.

As usual.

Who do you think is sicker? The people who fought against fascism or those that try to explain it!
You also have to remember the times, pasta was in short supply and vino home made.

Hi! Kris...
Unfortunately, I'am totally in the dark when it comes to the history of war, but the photograph is beautiful.

Even with a grey sky "looming"
overhead...or rather over Jen, Henry, and Ezra heads.
The quote...So true! So very true!
Thanks, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D

Roddy, I'm not sure fighting against Fascism is 'sick'. The notion of Fascism is an interesting one, a different kind of social unity. Of course exploring it is difficult as both the word and concept have some very unsavoury assumptions.

DeeDee, most are. The good thing is that the Italians lost!
