1) Editorial



MAGICAL SWALLOW SUNSET

It was one of those amazingly magical evenings that one can only have on Lake Kariba. The day s fishing had been good and the ride home on the boat was glorious. The lake was as calm as a mill pond and the sunset stretched before us like a panacea of gold.

As we drew into the Crocodile Farm / Kulizwe Lodge harbour something however was exceedingly different to our usual landings.

There was the strangest noise, a kind of buzzing, humming, swirling and chirping combined and the air was thick with wing beat and bustle.

Giant clouds filled with tiny black shadows and silhouettes bent and twisted in the still evening air, like those clouds of locusts one would see in the bad old days, or even more like those ugly destructive thunderclouds of queleas we had in the fifties.

Except this was different, they were defining clouds but friendly clouds, giant clouds of swallows, dipping and shifting in magnificently co-ordinated swirls, and then landing in the dense rushes at the edge of the harbour.

Every so often one would see a larger silhouette, possibly a bird of prey, mouth wide open in glee !

Looking up against the silver and gold evening sky one could see dense layer upon dense layer, almost as if "waiting in the wings", hundreds of thousands of possibly Barn Swallows, just like those multitudinous swallows we had seen previously at How Mine.

The bullrushes at the edge of the lake were already heavy with the tiny birds, bending over like reed bows in the sheer weight of hundreds of tiny swallows.

We could not be sure they were Barn Swallows but they were certainly a variety of swallow, the light was not good enough to identify them, and they moved so fast into the darkness of the reeds.

Silhouetted against the setting sun, the reed bed looked like a giant forest of corn with tiny ears, swaying in the wind, each tiny quivering swallow patiently finding his resting place for the night.

The noise was deafening, shrill, dense and non-stop for some forty minutes before they had all managed to land and settle amicably in the safety of the bullrushes. The bickering and bellyaching over and each one s position was secured, peace reigned at last.

Were they massing ready to migrate north for the winter? Surely it was too early, it was after all Christmas Eve, just after the longest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere?

We asked some of the locals and they said the phenomena had occurred for a couple of years now, always at this time of the year, always in this very harbour.

If they were migrating, how much sleep would they garner from clinging desperately to the weaving rushes all night long?. How much energy would they harvest for their journey of thousands of kilometres?

At least the Barn Swallows at How Mine were sensible enough to find a solid branch on which to roost comfortably preparing for their incredible journey!

What an absolute delight it was to witness one of the many wonderful mysteries of nature in the making.

9) Gossip Column

Yesterday on the way back from the farm I was stopped at the Nyamandlovu Roadblock. A policemen (in slightly aggressive tone) told me that he was fining me $10 for having 'a dirty vehicle'. Luckily I had the attached document sent to Mark by a friend, printed out and in the cubby hole. This is a VERY GOOD THING to have with you - it empowers you!! I asked him if he had the written law on him which states that this is the fine for a dirty vehicle. He did not. So I got mine out and we found the 'act' - which is actually for a PUBLIC SERVICE VEHICLE - not a private. It states that you should be fined $5 for an unclean or unsanitary vehicle. So I had my turn. I showed him the law, and then I asked him for his name and rank and said I would report him to the police. He then behaved in a most unprofessional way - ie. laughing and saying how much the self carbonating paper costs in the fines book ($7 per sheet and that's why he was going to fine me more than $5!!) I got out the car, saying 'I will see how dirty the pick-up is' - I then told him that it wasn't that dirty considering we are farmers and feed Bulawayo with tomatoes, cabbages, milk and eggs and that we are the most productive farmers in the area. He then backed down saying 'I didn't know you were a local, you should have told me. I will be lenient and let you off.'

Basically he knew he was wrong and realised that he would NOT get away with it. Please please don't let these policemen fine you for ridiculous things. Print out the attached and put it in your cars - all of them.
If they act like this GET THEIR
NAMES,
RANK,
POLICE NUMBER
AND NAME OF SUPERIOR AND PHONE THEM.
I didn't do this - he wouldn't give me his name actually and by then I was sick of the whole business. I didn't pay a cent though. They are getting away with it all the time and it needs to stop. Obviously we must not break the law - talk on cell phones, speed, we must wear seatbelts and have road worthy vehicles - BUT only get fined when it is for a legitimate reason!!

F.R.

I would like to inform readers of the new tactic being employed by traffic police. We are all so used to traffic police arresting you for going through an amber robot or talking on your cellphone whilst driving. Police are now ambushing drivers for going through traffic intersections with a STOP sign without stopping. I have recently witnessed this at cnr Pari and 13th. When you fail to STOP whilst turning left into Pari Ave from 13th Ave police will be anxiously waiting for you around the Coghlan Primary School zebra crossing area. So all drivers be aware of this "new" traffic offense. Also make an effort to take note and STOP at all other STOP signs around the city. Be sure to observe all other traffic regulations as police have of late been descending heavily on motorists.

Tchao!!!!

20) Lifts Wanted And Offered



21) Seeking Friends

I hope you don t mind me writing to you. I got your email from a colleague of my brother-in-law who takes an interest in the armed services and who had been doing some research on my behalf

I am 65 years old now, but my father, the above-mentioned person, was killed in a flying accident whilst teaching flying at RAF Heaney (as it was then called) Bulawayo I was 3 years old and living nearby. He was teaching young would-be pilots for the Rhodesian Air Force as it was then called (4FTS)

Before I get too much older I would like to come and visit his grave, but of course, wanted to find out if it was still there and whether it would be possible to locate etc. He died on the 1st August 1950 (or could have been 49) - anyway, the day after his 27th birthday If there is any information you or one of your readers might be able to get hold of, cemetery records etc - I would be very appreciative of such help I am quite a well known songwriter and musician, I co-wrote "Karma Chameleon" with Boy George of Culture Club, and had No 1 successes all over the world as an artist in the various bands I have worked in as a keyboard player and singer Thank you for your time With kind regards
