On the way to work on Thursday I read a local newspapers headline “Harry cavorts naked in Las Vegas” (one has to presume its Hooligan Harry from the UK.......yes Ii was right ), my first thought was “who Frikken cares” actually it was “who F^&%king cares” but thought t at would be to rude to write in the Blog. I then thought Nah we expect it from that privileged asshole, it would be headline news if it said. Normal hardworking man from PE cavorts naked in Las Vegas and that person was me. I mean who cares if Harry is waving his “Todger” (that’s upper class speak for Willy, penis, one eyed snake “YOU GET THE PICTURE” )In some Yank skanks (that’s lower class speak for estcourt, executive sales person etc etc) face.............well a few by the sound of it. I mean really who really wants to see his crown jewels? Apparently Charles gave him a stern talking to and asked him to keep his willy out of the news for the next couple of weeks. Mmmmmmm must be lekker to a royal ass hole.
A board of enquiry has been set up for the Marikana shooting incident last week, well it wasn’t really an incident more like Target practice for the SAP. You may have realized that I am not really sympathetic to those miners that got shot dead, you show up in a mean mood brandishing panga’s assegaai’s (large spears for those who may not know) as well as firearms. One of the excuses of why they decided that it would be a good idea to take on the police brandishing automatic weapons was that they had all clubbed in a few R and gone to the local witch doctor to get some muti that would make them bullet proof. So the various organizations or unions that are trying to downplay the role of the barbaric strikers are using muti as an excuse to why they wanted to hack to pieces and a burn a few more cops or security staff. So while they feel muti might deflect the blame one thing for sure is that the muti used did not deflect the bullets.................just aske 34 pissed off customers (sorry dead customers) as well as a number who were wounded who will want their money back next time they see the witch doctor................”hope he has muti that works for him”.
The dude that shot 77 people in Norway last year was sentenced to 21 years imprisonment..................21 years that’s 3.6 months for every person he killed. I know those Scandinavian countries are lenient and “uber” liberal but seriously 21 years for killing 77 people, surely they could have given him life. Can u imagine if he had killed fewer people he would have been out after a month or two.
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE and shows why we need to be vigilant that the world does not get taken over by militant Muslims and persecute those that are different (religious persecution has been responsible and is still responsible for so many people’s deaths)
Friday night we went to the comedy club at the boardwalk casino to see Carl do some stand up, Carl the owner of the guest house I always stay in when I am in EL, was lekker to meet a couple of friends and have a good laugh.
Gabby is riding up a storm and also getting to practice in the traffic by either following Tania when she uses the car or we ride together on the bike and the scooter. Can’t tell you how grown she feels being able to ride her own vehicle.
The All Blacks beat the Wallabies 22/0 in a one sided match while the Boks did not bath themselves in glory by clawing back from 13/3 to draw the match 16/16 after a fortuitous charge down by Frans Steyn to score near to the posts. I am seriously worried what the All Blacks and the Wallabies will do to us when we play them. First 1 day international against the Poms was washed out so no winner or loser in that one. Proteas now are number 1 in all 3 forms of the game: 5 day, 1 day and 20/20.......let’s hope we keep that for a while.
Don’t know (or can’t remember) if I told you that i have been asked to contribute a chapter to a book that is being published in Portugal about the Portuguese wars in Africa, I have been asked to write about Daniel Roxo, so been busy with that and nearly done. A little nervous that it will not be good enough.................oh well let’s see what happens.
Sat afternoon we had a braai at Ryan’s as is my Nephews 4th birthday today (Sunday 26th) was nice to see my father in law as have not seen in a while.
Well that’s about for this week, not much else to tell you....”yeah boring week” off to EL on Monday for a couple of days.
