Bayete Mkhulu!

Tobias is a grandfather. Sphamandla has a little boy, healthy and ‘very big’.

I told him he’s a kehla now. “You can call me mkhulu” he said in the same unbelieving way I said “Now I’m a pensioner” this last birthday.

Eish! Where’s the emergency brake?


‘course my coming-of-age party was ruined in that I’ve been offered pensioners discount for the past twenty years already by sumbitches who obviously need spectacles.

– actually, mkhulu Tobias still looks much like this, taken some years ago –
