Lunedi Lazzi*

For my friend Harold, Sonya and the girls ...

And I believe it with my whole heart!

*a Lazzo or Lazzi was an interlude in commedia dell'arte that was guaranteed to bring a smile if not an outright laugh to the spectator's face. I think this lovely cartoon qualifies as that.

20 february -  1472: Orkney and Shetland are pawned by Norway to Scotland in lieu of a dowry for Margaret of Denmark.
