The Porch

Sir William & The Porch

Barbara and I are guests of Bill at the Ondangwa Branch of the COSDEC Vocational Schools.  Young learners who are ambitious and ready to hone their skills in one of seven disciplines attend these schools.  Bill is helping to manage this facility and his current success has to do with Olute Foods, which processes and sells a type of millet that is widely consumed in Namibia.   Bill has been a very gracious host.  Here he is preparing the coals on his front porch to make rooste brood (roasted bread).  Not only did he design and make the fireplace; he is also an excellent cook!   Thank you, Sir William.Brumfield rooste brood

    Fro the photos i say, “Hi there you skinny minnies!!”
    Bet you are at a “lean and mean” weight.
    You’re looking very trim there Mr.Link and Ms. Rugen- not a inch to pinch.
    As you refer to the sculpture generated from creativity – If boredom is the impetus for such a sculpture then let me be bored 🙂
    Always sending warm thoughts your way.

    Perhaps your new buddy might want to “buddy up” to UCONN Barbie?
