On Tabbo’s Warden farm “Rust” (mine host Tabbo is second from right, yet another ale in hand).
I doubt if any of those guineas were killed by me (second from left) with my old man’s cheap Russian shotgun! A marksman I am not!
Kai Reitz once tried to get me to approximately hit a cow’s arse with a banjo on his farm The Bend, on the Tugela river outside Bergville, but in vain – he had to give up. He gently lobbed up big sandclods in a ploughed field and I filled the air surrounding them with birdshot. Then they plonked to earth. Thud!
With the last two shells he took the shotgun. I hurled two empty shell cases as hard as I could. Blap! Blap! he hit both of them!
Bloody guineas better watch, I’ll bring my mate next time!
