A load of bull horn!
Our Landy, Bul met die Harde Horing, is very special to us. We reside in Secunda, but often, my hubby Marius travels to Newcastle on business. On one such occasion, he spotted a white Series III Land Rover with a “For Sale” sign parked on the side of the road, and was adamant he wanted to own it. Marius eventually bought the Landy, and it was his new toy. On a Sunday afternoon, VD CDBHCDC SN CN @ AHS NE Nff- QN@ CHMF. ( S was the rainy season in Secunda, making everything muddy and slippery. But we were having so much fun. However, the old Series had one snag – the throttle linkage unhooked from time to time. As we came around the corner, we spotted a big black muddy hole up ahead. Marius, with a sly grin, said: “Gaan ons deur hom ry?” But before I could reply, he slammed the accelerator and we landed smack, bang in the middle of this black hole. Surprise, surprise: the linkage came undone – no throttle. Marius climbed out and everything was covered in black mud. I warned him that I would not wash his clothes when we got home, but would throw them in the bin. He eventually hooked the linkage back and we tried to get the Landy out of the hole. But there was another problem: the front and rear bumper was stuck in this hole and we were not going anywhere. We called for help, and all we could do was wait. Then Marius said: “Nou moet dit nog net begin reën.” @ MC fiUD LHMTSDR K@ SDQ, HS came pouring down. We were still waiting for help, when Marius said: “Nou moet dit nog net begin hael,” and as true as bob, it started hailing like crazy. That’s when I told Marius that he best keep his mouth shut. Eventually, our help ( in a Toyota bakkie) arrived and he asked Marius how in hell we got this far, because the Toy got stuck twice.

We still laugh about that day, but at that moment, I was furious because a Toyota had to come and help us. Yolandie Odendaal – Secunda
