Anniversary

by Lachie Strummer - 13:45 on 22 June 2010

Strimming
 
It's that time of year when the townships echo to the sound of grass-cutting equipment of various shapes and sizes.
 
My preferred 'weapon' is a Honda 4-Stroke Strimmer (with Brushcutter option!)
 
Operating this fine piece of Japanese engineering is surely the closest I'll ever come to flying my own helicopter!
 
I was slicing my way through some thick undergrowth this morning when a black and white cat jumped up, about a foot ahead of me, and legged it at a great rate of knots to my neighbours' garden.
 
He'll get over it.
 
 
Anniversary
 
This week will be 21 years since 'herself' and I got married.
 
I remember it well.
 
I've always been amazed at the train of events that followed that momentous occasion.
 
Within a few months the entire Soviet Union collapsed.
 
The Berlin Wall came down.
 
Nelson Mandela was released from prison.
 
Aye, it's a good job we got married!
