21st on Kenroy

Sheila saw to it I had a party! As so often, Sheila saved the day.

Des Glutz threw open his palatial bachelor home, Kenroy, on the banks of the mighty Vulgar River to an invasion of students from JHB and PMB. That’s because as a lonely horny bachelor Free State farmer he had his eye on some of those student teachers from PMB!

“Kindness of his heart” you thought? Ha! You know nothing about horny bachelor Free State farmers! Anyway, he owed me for managing his farm brilliantly when he went to Zimbabwe.

Eskom had not yet bedevilled Kenroy so paraffin lamps, gaslamps and candles gave light. Music pomped out from car batteries. Noreen, Jo and Ski danced their Broadway routine The Gaslamp Revue with Redge Jelliman holding the silver tray footlight staring in open-mouthed wonder at their skill. And of course, their legsnboobs – another lonely horny bachelor Free State farmer, y’know.

There was also Liz and Mops and Jenny, Georgie, Mandy, Gill and Jill; Hell, we bachelors were in awe at almost being outnumbered – a rare event. We were so excited we got pissed and fell down. Timothy Paget Venning got so excited he walked all the way round the house smashing Des’ window panes to let in the night.

 

Poor ole Gilbert, Des’ personal butler, valet and chef, bore the brunt of the extra work! He cooked and cooked, including a big leg of lamb which didn’t make the main table, getting scoffed on the quiet by ravenous would-be teachers under the kitchen table. Pity the poor kids who would have to grow up being taught all the wrong things by this lot in Natal in the eighties.

They were wild n topless:

If the bachelors had been there, we’d have politely averted our eyes. Right!!

Tabbo wore his tie so he could make a speech into his beer can microphone:

Funny how Glutz doesn’t feature in any pics! Where was he? We know he wasn’t in his bedroom cos the TC girls raided it and were in awe at the impressive collection of toys and rubber items in his bedside drawer. No stopping those TC girls!

After the weekend I roared back to Jo’burg in my brand-new 1965 two shades of grey and grey Opel Rekord Concorde deluxe sedan four-door, full-bench-seated, 1700cc straight-four, three-on-the column chick magnet motorcar. My first! Watch out Doornfontein!

Thanks Mom & Dad! And thanks for the party, Sheils!

The old man organised the numberplate OHS 5678 for me. The man at the Harrismith licencing office said “Oom, are you sure you want an easy-to-remember number for your son? Don’t you want one that’s hard to remember?”

  1. Thanks for the hilarious “confessions”! I do remember Gilbert and the roast mutton incident. I have no recollection of the topless photo shoot though! I also remember opening a drawer next to Des’ bed (with Sheila as witness) and finding a plethora of FL’s in every shape and size!! Not quite sure why we were rummaging through them in the first place! As a sweet young innocent it was slightly mind boggling!
    I have a wonderful video of Des busting some moves with sister Val. I sent it to Sheila the other day, she can forward it to you.
    Keep us posted Koos!
    Wishing you a great Christmas season.
    Warm regards,
    Mandy

    1. Marandeadloss! What a lovely message! I hosed meself! You guys were incorrigible. Just like you to rummage through poor old hopeful romantic bachelor Des’ secret stash, kept more in hope than expectation.
      I saw his video! I think its going to go viral and he’s going to be invited onto Strictly Come Dancing. He’ll win based on facial expressions alone!
      Whattahoot! Lotsa love – K
