Well, Who The Hell . . .

. . woulda thunk this!? If you’d asked me I’d have said the likelihood of this happening would be as remote as me falling preggers, but . . . life.

I’m working in a catholic monastery.

Allan Marais moved our St Mary’s optometric clinic into Marianhill Monastery when the province said they no longer needed our free service. Anyone smell a rat? Can a juicy tender be somewhere in the mix?

So here we are! Halleluja, Three Hail Marys, Bless you and all that. I now drive through those pearly gates you see above every two or three months when I do my voluntary eyeball-checking stint!

We’re in the bottom left. Fannon building, I think


These pics are from Hugh Bland’s wonderful site where he is busy recording, cataloguing and preserving KwaZulu Natal history, bless him! Here he is, dressed and kitted out for action. KwaZulu Memories Man!


Did I mention he’s a Natal Cousin of mine?


Natal Cousin – distant relative claimed if said person is doing well

    Hugh Bland and I served on the St Henry`s Marist Parents Body some years back. A fine fellow. Did you send him/Could you send him The Denis Luck article on McCords? – (Me: Sure – Have done. Sent him to bewilderbeast.org/2018/02/04/mccords-zulu-hospital/).
