Ek het twee plekke so bietjie tyd "gemors" -  op Lydenburg n pel geFacebook message en n urr later uitgevind hy sit in Stilbaai.
Met terugkom ook gestop en  n ander makker gebel . Die was oppad hospitaal toe. Dogter het middag by werk inmekaar gesak en hy moes klere deurvat. Toegedink op op die xorpie te eet mqar de plek wat die ek toe kies was toe.
Kon seker dan die draai wyer gemaak het en  1000 km opgesit het vir die dag.
