Long story short, I popped into the Vodacom shop and within an hour I walked out with a brand new Samsung S3 Smartphone. Exactly like the one I lost off the back of the motorbike except this one is gold.

While I was busy in the cellphone shop, Grant bumped into a fellow biker who we'd met at the AGM in mid-June. Later we met for a coffee in the mall.

Later we met up with the president of the motorcycle association and of course, I took photos.

On Tuesday Grant had arranged for John and Jacob (who worked for him in Marquard) to help him load the heavy equipment from the storage.

I looked for a few things in storage but actually don't need much more at this stage. However, I clambered up onto a pile of boxes to see if I could find my Harley Davidson boots. After opening three boxes, not finding what I wanted and trying to push the stuff back into the boxes, I closed them and turned around. I stepped down gingerly onto the second box and then onto my linen chest. My foot slipped and I tumbled to the floor with my left leg under my butt. Errrggghh. I could actually hear the crunch as I hurt my foot.
By this time Grant and his helpers were finished loading and he suggested I pop into the doctor's surgery to check up on the damage. I saw the doctor's assistant, Tracy who examined my foot and fortunately diagnosed that nothing was broken or fractured. I'd just suffered a nasty bruise.

We duly said goodbye to MIL Pam, packed our cases into the car and bid Rina farewell. It's always such a pleasure to stay with her and it's always with heavy hearts that we greet each other.
Entering the Golden Gate National Park I cannot resist taking dozens of photos as we drive down. The views are awesome.
The Free State at its best!
Once again, Grant stopped at the scenic dam where I'd photographed the cormorants on the way up on Sunday.
The vehicle and trailer were loaded to the hilt
We arrived home in the mountains at 4.30 and unloaded our suitcases and personal effects. Yesterday morning Grant drove all down to the workshop and with the help of two men there, he's unloaded it and set it up to his satisfaction.
HAPPY THURSDAY TO YOU ALL!
