PLUMBERS DELIGHT !!!

I am seriously thinking of taking up plumbing.

Its not that I have a suspicious nature, but how does one know exactly what a plumber does in one s ceiling.

Heights and I are not close friends, but I have been ripped off by plumbers too many times, so I am first going to go on an abseiling course to get used to heights, and then I am going to do a course in elementary plumbing and electrics.

Now our Bulawayo plumbing is fine, its old, its decrepit, the house was built in 1952, and it has a flat roof so the geysers are on the exterior walls And the plumbers are our friends and not shrewd like theses Gautengians.

Is this just bad luck, or is it some sort of plumbing ghost that has invaded the offsprings s Gauteng home?

First all three geysers were installed with no drip trays, so when geyser number one sprung a leak, so did the ceiling boards and so did the carpets and so on and so forth.

With this in mind I then had drip trays installed under the next two geysers And thats when the fun began As sure as eggs are eggs, when the plumbers go up into the roof to fix something, I swear they 'doctor' something else !!

Upstairs bedroom flooded because of leaky geyser, downstairs bedroom flooded because of leaky geyser and every time a plumber arrives, it costs a day of waiting for him to arrive, a healthy bill, a battle with the insurers and a whole bunch of money.

200 litre geysers just cannot fit in the trapdoor so they have to go in through the roof, I cannot imagine the state of the roof tiles, the state of the ceiling insulation, and what are they doing up there at any rate for such a long time?

And what happened to the 'old' geyser, no one gave me a refund, it looked perfectly fine to me Does my friendly plumber take it home, weld it slightly, and he now has a perfectly good geyser to sell to some other acrophobic idiot?

Now plumbers love an insurance claim, they smack their lips in glee Our insurers are going to think we are in league with the plumbers financially !!

OK so I am a doubting Thomas, I distrust my fellow man, I am a cynic and I am not paying so why should I bother, I just hate being ripped off and I also know that the insurers will probably put the premiums up just now.

How can three separate Gauteng geysers have three separate holes, in such a short space of a couple of years, when those in Zim have lasted for twenty to thirty years?

Ok Kriel gird your loins, up the ladder you go, do not look down, do not pass go, do not even think of the consequences of a broken hip at your decrepit age !! Senility has its price but I am going to conquer this thing.

They are back now, those plumbers of mine, the water is not hot enough for SheeHoo who loves a deep hot bath after a trip to Mogadishu, (for some odd reason ).

Now its the other geyser, oh they are joined are they ? Why does one have two geysers that are joined ? Even a presbyopic female knows thats dumb.

Oh and suddenly, after one new ten thousand rand geyser has been installed, now the other next to it is not working, how dumb do they think I am ????

'Oh but, Ma am, I can do it cheaper on my day off ??' How does one combat this dishonesty, not by being dishonest in return, and his over zealous insistence that he will bring me the old element and thermostat ? What was it Shakespeare said ? 'Methinks he doth protest too much?'

I smell a rat, 'Here look, search my tool box, I have no other old element here and I will bring you the old one I promise !!' Why is he even saying this ????

I would no more insult him by searching his toolbox than I would fly to the moon, and he well knows that.

2 x 200 litre geysers should now be working in tandem happily, I am going to test that blighter ! I am going to run three full baths simultaneously and see if I get 400 litres of hot water all at one time otherwise 'Watch this space' !!!

Sucker !! I have the word written on my forehead thats for sure, those Gautengians can see an unsuspecting Zimbabwean a mile away!!

PLEASE, Famona Residents, be considerate and DO NOT DUMP We need to fight to get the Council to step up rubbish removal and solve the problem, rather than make it worse

Christine Bridgman (nee Alanthwaite)

Roy Bridgman bridgmanroy@gmail com

I have just read about Ceta - Ceta and her parents Mr and Mrs Burt (to me no first names in those days) were among the first people to welcome us to Bulawayo when we arrived care worn and tired from South Africa and India before that, give or take a few months so I have known Ceta since 1948 She was a tiny skilled dedicated ballerina and how I longed to be just like her, but for a start I certainly wasn't petite even tho not tall, so laughed that off!

I do send sympathy to her children for the loss of their mother Ceta and I remained friends on and off over the years, particularly when we all lived in Weir Avenue another memory to pack away

With love

GENERAL

WE NEED TO STOP RUBBISH BEING DUMPED

The supposed 'green belt' near my house is a terrible dumping ground for household rubbish However at the beginning of January I was delighted to see the Bulawayo City Council there with their trucks, loading up all this rubbish and taking it away What a relief it was to drive by and see the place clean again
But then, just a few days later I noticed fresh rubbish dumped in the same area I decided to do some investigating and I rummaged through this new rubbish until I found an email, addressed to someone who it turned out I knew I immediately emailed her and told her about my discovery and she did some investigating herself She came back to me later and told me that in fact it was her staff that had taken it upon themselves to remove her rubbish They hadn't realized that there was anything wrong with dumping it in this area She was obviously mortified by this and said she would keep a closer eye from now onwards on what happened to her rubbish
This is the second time in a month that I have stumbled on householders not noticing what their staff are doing with their rubbish On the previous occasion the maid was dumping the rubbish in a garden shed and just leaving it there to rot without telling anyone The employees had no idea this was happening until I drew their attention to this (after I had smelt it and gone to see what was happening)

I wonder how often household staff dispose of rubbish in a way that is really just making our city into one huge refuse tip
I am writing this to make my fellow citizens aware of this practice, if they are not already, and to ask them to make sure their staff are not doing the same too If they are clearly told that it is not right, and they are given the dates of when the City Council trucks come every month, and they have the rubbish out early on these days, maybe this practice of dumping will improve significantly Alternatively, if they feel there is too much rubbish for a once monthly collection, you can take it to the municipal yard down the Khami Road, opposite the SPCA and dispose of it yourself No one needs to dump rubbish Let's try to make 2012 a dump free year

The Last Resort: A Memoir of Mischief and Mayhem on a Family Farm in Africa By Douglas Rogers

Having never been a fan of local stories and writings (put it down to still living here and dealing with chaos on a daily basis!) I was reluctant to read this book when it was given to me on a recent overseas trip But, it was wonderful and a thoroughly recommendable read Unbiased, factual without sensational overtones and lightly comical, the pages are filled with the reality of a people who must surely rank with life's best
