About Me:

Good old boy from way down south. Author of two novels, "Pop-splat" and "Kikaffir - a Black Comedy". Not for Aunty Prude, that's for sure. Buy a copy from

After Frikkie Welgemoed became rich he did the usual stupid things that people do. Like instead of getting pissed on brandy and coke, he took to malt whisky at R450 a bottle.

This is the record of a discussion held on the terrace of the Lodge at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve on 15 September 2008.

“This is serious rain,’ said the other guy. “This is cats and dogs being chased by old maids with knobkieries,” said Cupcake.

The Leaders led the people out of the land of Rektum and settled them in the sweet smelling valleys of Paradise. It was good of the Leaders to do this.

We were half an hour early and he was running half an hour late, so we had an hour to kill.

When Blacky and Anne Swart retired to Baardskeerdersbos 5 years ago they knew they were going to have to watch their pennies.

Back in the 20th century it was called henpecked. A nagging wife would wear the pants and rule the roost, and treat her spouse with a lack of respect that sometimes developed into contempt.

She came home with three goose eggs.

I am accustomed to the way things are in this messed up country, and now that I’m in my sixties I wouldn’t choose to live anywhere else, even if I could.

The Constitution guarantees are a load of delusional horse manure, more to do with wishful thinking than actual reality.

From the newspaper box I took an old copy of the Cape Times and went outside, closing the door behind me. I didn’t want the dog following and making a nuisance of herself.
