25 December Special

Merry Christmas from our garden in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa also on behalf of our resident Malachite Sunbird and all the other winged friends.

BTW Hope to see you all in what many South Africans and the tourist industry consider as a ‘dull village’ …. ‘Dull’???? Read here how dull!

Retirement

Whenever I hear or read ‘Retirement Village’ (and with all respect!) I get an association with a phase between life and after-life. Yesterday I was standing on a hill and I pictured this symbolic view. It’s indeed very close.

Local Talent in the village 2

Yes; Napier (South Africa) has talent. This weekend two of them will perform during the annual ‘Patatfees’ (Sweet Potato Festival). Coached by local musicians/sound engineers they improved a lot during the past year. Ready for the big stage. He will perform in the cococola truck at the grounds of the Protea Primary School this Friday afternoon.

This is Drew. R&B, pop and more. Artist pur sang. Watch his moves.
