Geluk my maat. Dis n lekker laaaaaang kontrak die keer

Thanks everyone!  :thumleft:

Yes baas Kobus the contract is 1 to 2 months longer than the norm, but mainly (I think) because the company owns elevators and and these need to be maintained and then the trains need up and offloading of agricultural goods.
My printer gave up, but ok it was old - I'll have to source a new one tomorrow since I will soon get follow-up emails with documents and instructions. This now the contract, rules, travel insurance, visa etc.

Now it's all real and I am relieved  :thumleft:

What do you need printer for Tom? It's waste of money.

Just go to any PostNet office - they have computers there from which you can print and edit documents. Just send the documents you need to your email (or bring it on memory stick) and you are sorted.

I completely forgot about their service Martin, and they are walking distance from my flat!
Appreciate your advice!  :thumleft:

Congratulations Tom, well-deserved indeed! You'll surely wow this farmer as you did the previous farmer, and if it's a good placement, you'll be invited back.

So NOW can you come do your Karoo tour?  :ricky: :imaposer:

Thanks Ri, my first boss told me just now that if things dont work out I just need to let him know.
I feel a bit sad because of this, he did indeed provided a stepping stone for me into a new world.
Anyway, I feel excited about the new job since I'll get to learn a lot and develop my skills both in farming and the elevators.

No time left unfortunately for a tour, I will soon need to go for the consulate interview etc.
Cheers  :thumleft:

Awesome Tom!!!!  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

And your hourly rate is a lot more than I get  :eek7:

Now just try to make sure that you get an extra couple of weeks on your visa at the end of the contract so you can come visit again! We need to do more fishing man  :ricky:

Great news Tom! I think these farmers perhaps recognise what your varied experience means: can handle a diversity of challenging situations, not likely to throw hands in air because "it is too difficult". I hope it is an enjoyable assignment!

Thanks Gary!

Yes fishing in Florida was quite something - I'll try my best to behave at customs to get that extra 10 days on my Visa this time around  :imaposer:

Veels geluk Tom, een van die dae koop jy jou eie plaas daar in Yankeeland. Gee hulle gas my maat. En geniet dit.

Thanks guys & girls, appreciate the kind words!
I am kind of funny in a way and cant get excited in life before something happens like for instance in this case I must first have my Visa and paid for my flight itinerary....even have it in hand before it becomes real!
However, I'll finalize all the paperwork Monday morning and then pack my bag and put it down here in the living room.  :lol8:
