So let me tell you what I've been up to over the past number of months. This may take a few posts to tell all, but things have changed a bit and blogging at night is no longer impossible.
Russ is a young man that works with me whenever I manage to find work and is someone I trust. He's the son of a widow friend, Diana, someone I've known for about six years now. A good kid.
Now I must tell you that I love my home, it's one of those places where you wake up in the morning with the roosters crowing outside the bedroom window. A place where coffee on the veranda in the morning looking out to far horizons is a treat, so leaving my dogs and cats alone while I attend to other matters is never easy.
Now some of you know I build exhibition stands and quality and finish are of paramount importance, of course time plays a huge part in what we can achieve. I arrived at about midday to walk into a huge show stand build that was already on the go. Arriving half way through a build means that I'm pretty much in the dark and having to work out what's going on, it was due in three days. Like I said, into the fire.
Right now it's Saturday and the guys are finishing a whole stack of easels for a paint manufacturer here in South Africa, Plascon Paints. They need to be delivered on Monday and since most of the work is sanding and spraying, I find myself with a bit of time to write this blog post. Myles has just arrived and told me I might as well go home, so off to a "Braai" I go. Oh a braai is what you would know as a barbecue. Cool.
I'm going to give it a rest for now but will carry on with this update tomorrow from Toni's house. In the mean time, blessings from Geoff, back in Johannesburg once again.
