I may have a few of these notes laying around somewhere in a photo album. ( Remember photo albums? )

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

This the same Country and City where my wife and I were caught in the middle of a coup d'etat in 1987...





This is where we were staying....




      











Here is a view of Maseru taken from the Lesotho Sun. I took a bunch of pictures from here, myself, in 1987.

When I was in South Africa Mandela was in the Eastern Cape in a Minimum Security Prison negotiating with F W De Klerk in order to attempt to bring Apartheid to an end and build a New Constitution to enable the Black Majority to vote....


....many times Mandela had been offered Unconditional Freedom if he would reject Violence and terrorism on Soft Targets.....Mandela repeatedly refused over the years....

I would show up at a rig at like 10 in the morning ( depending on how many hours it took me to get out there on the dirt tracks...), and, invariably, the boss would say WOULD YOU LIKE A DRINK?  


It was ten o'clock in the morning!!  Shocked





They didn't pour any sissy shot glasses!!   I might take me a half an hour to finish the glass.  





It's a wonder any work got done.  





























....drive to next drilling rig feeling no pain....watching out for puff adders!

Buffelsfontein Mine was closed in 2005 due to a seismic event. It has re-opened now.  







Buffelsfontein Mine was the mine that was featured in the movie GOLD starring Roger Moore and Susanah York in 1974.  Filmed in 1973.   












      

















The movie makers landed a plane on the macadam road right next to the huge pile of tailings.  Fifteen years later I used to drive down that street every day!  Our warehouse was a mile away from the scene of this action in the movie.

My wife and I lived on Neethling Street.  You can see it on the map.   



     






    

My buddy and I sometimes had to go down into Buffelsfontein Mine in Stilfontein to check the drilling mud on a drilling rig that was two miles down deep in the mine.  The rig was drilling even deeper, to see where the gold was running....

In those days you could not take a camera down into the mine.  I guess you can now. 


You weren't supposed to take cigarettes down there, either, but we did.  






It was hot down there, and wet.  We went down at eight AM and could not get an elevator back up until 3PM.  We were stuck down there all that time, having finished our work long ago....
