Not content with rubbing our faces in the fact we (the minority taxpayer/s) have just built him and his extended family a R250 000 000 home, “sorry village” our beloved Mr. Comrade President has decided to leave 2012 on a high note. During a speech in KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday the president said spending money on buying a dog and taking it for walks belonged to white culture and was not the African way, which was to focus on the family, the Mercury reported. He said there was a new generation of young Africans who were trying to adopt other lifestyles and even trying to look like others. “Even if you apply any kind of lotion and straighten your hair you will never be white,” Zuma said. Instead, a person lost dignity and ubuntu, and was also likely to lose respect and love for his fellow human beings. He added that black people should stop adopting the habits of other cultures. Seems that JZ does not like dogs and says that only whites buy dogs and look after them...............mmmmmmm now at least we know “who let the dogs out” he also said that black people should stop trying to be like whites, so I wonder how many “black Diamonds” are going to give up their fancy cars, watches etc etc ......... “not frikken many”
Xmas eve we had Dinner at Ryans and Xmas day lunch was at our place, woke up latish, that’s the joy of having a teenager you don’t have to wake up at sparrow fart. Got some lekker presents with the double Volume ‘The Terrible Ones’ a complete history of 32 Battalion. Also got a couple of other books as well. Bought Tania a Tab for Xmas...............wasn’t over the moon to be honest but the real one will be coming any day soon (Samsung Galaxy 2).
Boxing day saw Ryan, Keith and I go to St Georges to watch the 20/20 game between SA and the New Zealanders. Was a great afternoon, as usual we sat at the duck[pond end of the stadium with the band and what an atmosphere. Was a bit concerned after the win by the Black caps at East London that SA would lose the game but not to worry they bounced back and won the game by 38 runs.
Got some Biltong fro xmas from family in the UK and when we opened it on 25th it was vrot (not “lekker” for those non Afrikaans speaking readers) (not “nice” for those no “Sefrican” speaking readers). It was purchased on the 24th so it’s not like it had been lying around for a month. Ryan tossed his, dad had put his in Tupperware and so that perhaps saved his. I took mine back to the shop bought from “hey nothing ventured , nothing gained the gent at first wanted to tell me that because it had been kept outside in a brown paper packet for 24 hours or more it had gone off. My response was “what is biltiong”? and why was it made?................... “Because the Voortrekkers didn’t have F..king fridges asshole” He replaced the Biltong.
So in less than 48 hours 2012 will be a mere memory (some good, some bad and some just lets Frikken forget) Any revolutions for 2013?................. Well perhaps one for rhino poachers and those Chinese fellows that can’t get “hardons” should be “don’t Frikken shoot another Rhino” we have lost over 600 again this year. I don’t believe in resolutions but I have goals for this year and 2014, will keep you posted.
Got the book Route 66 by Billy Connelly , read it from cover to cover in less than 2 days great book and just wet the appetite for me wanting to do the trip even more than before I actually read it. That’s the next trip, first the UK in June and then the USA to do route 66.................oh that’s after I get my Harley. House, Holiday overseas, Harley – that was the deal.
