The challenge is to write a letter to the one person you’d like to see reading your blog…
I’ve been meaning to write for some time now, but you seem to be everywhere at once. It’s difficult to get a forwarding address, see? Still, I hope this letter finds its way to you.
Life in Rolbos is bubbling along nicely. It’s a small community, although we do get a surprising amount of visitors from all over the globe. There’s a party on in Boggel’s Place tonight, as usual. They’re all here, listening to Gertruida’s explanation of the intricate way fracking will have an effect on the Karoo. She must have read something in National Geographic again.
The reason for my letter is to remind you that I’m still keeping that special bottle of wine for the visit you promised before the end of the year. You’ve been such a loyal reader of the unfolding events in our little town, and it’s the least I can do to say thank you.
Oh, and Vrede’s looking forward to your visit as well. He seems to have formed a special bond with you, and he gets quite grumpy when you stay away. Remember to bring some of those biscuits he likes so much?
Don’t worry about accomodation. We can always fit in an extra soul – you know we do. Kleinpiet has left a few chops and a string of wors in the fridge, and Vetfaan unloaded a stack of wood for the fire. Cactus? There’s always a few bottles in the fridge.
So, you can see we’re ready to receive you with open arms. Please don’t feel like you’re intruding – Rolbos will certainly be the poorer for it if you didn’t come.
In happy anticipation,
