SPIR­ITED SIPHO: I have at­tended some in­ter­est­ing func­tions in my life, and this one was right up there with the most un­usual of them.

Achim, Sipho’s guardian an­gel, on hear­ing it was our NBF’S 40th birth­day de­cided to give him a birth­day lunch in the park where he lives.

So, Achim, his wife An­nemarie, two of their friends, Sipho and my­self sat down to a lunch of chicken and other de­light­ful eats in the park where he lives and ate it all off of, what is ef­fec­tively, Sipho’s bed. To say Sipho was a happy chappy is prob­a­bly the un­der­state­ment of the year. SHAKE­SPEARE: Mar­ian Wilkens who teaches English at the Ger­man School con­tacted me to see if she could use parts of my ar­ti­cle for her pupils.

Bet­ter than that, Dorothy Anne Gould has ar­ranged to take her troupe of as­pir­ing thes­pi­ans to the school to chat to Mar­ian’s pupils.
