Mini mine rumble on the road.

 MINI  MINE  RUMBLE  ON THE ROAD

This story is true but I cannot prove it because the house, road people and horse no longer exist. The People retired and the horse died. The domestics grew older and their children went to school. Only I remain with some semblance of insanity. End of pre-amble.    

I joined up on a Free State Gold Mine in 1982. And received a palatial-like residence in Virginia which today is referred to as a mine house.The money was good but not as good as the salary in Namibia. You cannot have your bread buttered on both sides, can you?    

The neighbourhood was a typical miner neighbourhood and the term “Posh” had never entered the dictionaries yet. Now that was a long time ago and I was still wise and young. Wise and young, too, is a polar statement and cannot exist today but did so in my sojourn through time.    

One hot afternoon I returned home from work somewhat disgruntled with the Kombi’s works. There was a tiny problem in the gearbox which made all the gears, except 3rd,   fail to engage. later, while checking out the gearbox  a noise was heard emanating from the street and some houses at the upper end of the street. I went to take a look. The road was streaming with others out to do the same.     

A domestic and her Marram were exchanging robust words and the support group of the domestic was egging on the fight which seemed to be rather vocal only.  A crowd was building and milling around the verbal combatants while two other domestics decided it was a perfect venue to sort out their differences too.  Then we heard it: A cloppity-clop of a horse on the tar. In fact it was the cavalry- of -one. The horseman was swinging a whip around threatening to injure someone soon. The rumpus waged on unheedingly.    

The horseman, a miner, had reason to be upset because he was busy taking a nap after his nightshift and I mean after all he is entitled to it, Is he not? (No the horse never slipped and fell) that will still take 20years to come.   Later an investigation was made and the findings were: The Marram had fired her domestic earlier in the week and taken on another one at a higher rate of pay. Dammit man! Egad, that will place me in high dudgeon too
