The fires seemed to have burned out for the time being, but there are still a lot of pine trees still standing. We have a Berg Wind again today so there has been another fire warning from the local firefighters. I think all the Vynbos shrubs that have been partly burned should now be cut level with the ground as they are so dry and can still burn. There are quite a few holes in the ground which look like Snake holes but they are where the shrubs used to be before the fire.

It has only been a few weeks and a lot of the vynbos is starting to grow back. We had a wake here for the firefighters that lost their lives during the big fire. The town was filled by Bikers on Harley`s and filled the main  road for most of the day. Last weekend was the turn of the Municipality and local residents, this was much quieter and smaller.

While i was gardening I heard these women singing in the distance and it sounded like a mass march but I was so surprised at how few arrived. The singing was very good and they were very well behaved even though they had to wait a long time to get their voices heard.

To show how ridiculous things have got, I will put a joke that was on a newspaper web site.

It is still very puzzling that 26 fires started in many different places at the same time. There have been some arrests for arson and theft from farms and buildings that were evacuated. The disappointing thing is that articles were stolen from the very places that were trying to help the victims of the fires. These were items like a coffee machine, pressure cooker, hot plates and other kitchen ware. This may cause people not to help next time we have an emergency.2017-06-27 22.35.05

I am still getting Hestony trucks parking outside with their refrigeration motors running all night. This time I was lucky a the Police agreed that he couldn`t. It was a restful night but I think the chicken in the back had defrosted a bit by the time he left in the morning.

It`s strange when you look at photos after downsizing. Sometimes you don`t remember where they went, other times giving things away leaves a lasting memory.

These were made from bits of wood that I found in Tokia forest, but gave them all away to friends and family. Some I still see when I visit old friends.

This display wason the wall of my workshop, most of them are now in the UK at my brothers Dojo and are still seem by many of his students.

This is the bike that was raced at the Rainbow track in Jo`burg when Mike Bramley still ran `Hells Angels` They were great days and possible the best motor cycling days of my life.

This was my first car that I had to get once the family started to grow. It was quite good for the kids as we had a nice mattress in the back so they could sleep when they wanted to. I don`t think this would be allowed now but seet belts were no a requirement then. This was in Durban where I traded it in for a Valiant so we could drive down to Cape Town.

there are also interesting things along the beach. I don`t know where this tree root came from.

Why use the supermarket when all you need is a small patch of ground. This is a bit of the garden that is at the side of the house, so was a waste to grow flowers, but provides all my fresh veggies. lucky i have kids so am able to pass some along when the crop is too large.Image00845

If you have potholes in your road ask this guy to come along as he`s found a use for them. 🙂

Have a great day 🙂

When Mike and Nevile Bramley were the leading lights in the `Hells Angels` in Jo`berg. Mike had a customizing. shop and Nevile had the `Pink panther`. Mike had a bike that he made himself that was used on the `Rainbow Strip` and it was the fastest thing around. There was a photo of it on an earlier blog.

This belonged to a new member who hadn`t got his colors yet.
What brought this on was being in town today and seeing the wake of one of our local bikers who had been with the Mak`s for many years. It was quite a turnout and even the main street was blocked off by the local police. I`ve put a few photos on the blog but the rest are on Facebook. I tried to make an album but not being very knowledgeable in Facebook it didn`t work. There is still about 30 photos of the event on my page. Keith William

I used to drive around the Dam every weekend and very often would find a lot of `Hells Angels` out on their weekend drive. Although not a member I was accepted and had many interesting coffee breaks.I still remember the `Viking` as he wore a hemet with horns on it.
