RIV Gideon, ons het darem 'n paar baie lekker trippies saam gehad, dit moes eintlik baie meer gewees het.

Weet nie of daar iemand hier is wat dalk betrokke was, 'n hele paar jaar gelede nie. Ons het langs die Vaal rivier gekuier en Gideon het met sy bike gery. Op pad het hy langs die pad gestop, en kon toe nie weer die bike gestart kry nie. Ons het gebel om uit te vind, maar hy het reeds hulp gekry, en iemand met 'n sleepwa het hom kom uithelp. Net voor hulle sy bike op die sleepwa laai, toe sien sy "support" die rooi engine run/stop skakelaar is af. Nodeloos om te sÍ, Gideon het dit met 'n glimlag gevat, en ook die banter baie lank daarna omdat hy vir 'n paar uur langs die pad gesit het met die engine run/stop skakelaar af!

Goeie tye, en dit is hoe ek Gideon onthou, altyd 'n lag in sy siel en wese gehad oor goed en was nie bang om vir homself ook te lag nie.
