Roll call

#1 Unread post by sapaul » Thu Jun 11, 2020 4:46 am

Hi guys

just a shout out to some long lost mates. I have not been here for a while, life got in the way.

So just a roll call to some of the guys I interacted with way back.

Hope you are all safe and doing OK, very shocked to see and here what is happening over the water.

Stay safe.

I'm still here, glad to see you back!

I still use your pork loin recipe from time to time even. :)

How've you been?

Thanks guys, great to see you are all good. We are in complete turmoil here and are still in lockdown and are now in day 83. Travel is extremely restricted and is not allowed from province to province.

Our lockdown rules are very harsh. Alcohol has only just now been lifted and suppliers have restricted days and hours for sales. Tobacco products and even nicotine for vaping is totally banned. Business have been closed and are at this moment allowed to open under very strict conditions like 30% workforce at a time. The whole country is busy going bankrupt.

I have made an effort to see what is happening around the world and am still staggered by an event that I never thought I would see in my lifetime. My thoughts go out to any one who the virus has touched. To see the resilience of people around the world though shows just how tough we are. We will come through this and be stronger for it. I wish you all well in these trying times.

Other than that, it is bloody freezing in JHB, Yes it does get cold here but at least the sun shines most of the time and even in the cold we are able to fire up the barbecue and burn some steak and chicken. I have also discovered that cabin fever is real and that only copious amounts of Call of duty and Battlefield stave off the mental anguish. I have actually got pretty good at blowing stuff up. Our game reserves are closed and apparently the animals have gotten together with the lack of humans and are forming their own political party. If you like wildlife try this link

Some enterprising guys have set up live Safari drives daily, so we can get our wildlife fix

Great chatting and catching up, talk again soon
