Just for you my mate Zonkel,

I had to go visit my old man,s grave with my mum whilst I was in Wales, but found it interesting too.



















With all this talk about the average life span being so much longer, I found it interesting that these stones from 1890 to say 1910 all show lifespans of 70 to say 90 years old? Who is bullshitting who.


But this one gutted me.

For those of you who have not been in Middelpos...and I suppose there can not be too many who have been. This is the centre of town. One house, one shop, one petrol pump (out of order), one post office and believe it or not, one hotel!!! (but the bar was closed) Oh yes, and the graveyard behind the hotel.
Carpe Diem

The grave of Sarie Mare, the gal featuring in the song "My Sarie Marais is so ver van my af..."  Stumbled across it just outside Greytown on the way to Stanger, theres a weather beaten sign indicating the turnoff, then the gravel road leads into a plantation where the graves are.  It's about 14 kays outside Greytown off the R74.  Did not save the co-ords, kicking myself for that but Santa has an order in for a cable that will link my camera and GPS so every pic will have GPS co-ords embedded.
Have petrol will move

I misread that as "Ma;treated Corn Merchant".  Strange things are some times written on gravestones & I thought you had found one.
I lodged at a house where the landlady's estranged husband was a maltster.  He lived in a single room & she shared her bed with one of the other lodgers.  I was 17 at the time & being exposed to life real quick.

Ok, I've now had a few beers, but I'm going to try the photobucket thing, so bear with me.

These pics are of the wall of rememberance (SP?) at the voortrekker monument. I was suprised to find the ashes of this guy here. It must have been moved here during the last few years.

If this works, this first photo should just show the wall.


Ok, it seems to work, so here's the rest.






Here's the unexpected name I mentioned.


I don't know if they allow bikes in here, will ask them next time I go there.
