Thanks Peter

The Knysna Lit Fest coming up early March – doesn’t look half as interesting as Richmond or Howick!!!

Nice one, Dr B, all sorts of records you’re scoring and awards you’re deserving for what you've done for that dorpie and for Seffrica and for literature and brotherhood and togetherness.

Is this Hendrik the same Hendrik who was in the thick of things back when I was in the congregation? Or is the surname Ackerman ringing a bell? Is he still in? Apropos, that farming couple from somewhere semi-distant, like 50K away, the most loyal attenders of every session and the most attentive listeners? He was John and she was… was… right on the tip of my tongue, an unusual name, like half a syllable away from a common name, lovely name, lovely person. Lauris? The Jolly Roger chap? Your friend and do I think it was accountant or lawyer, Paul?

Your download isn't downloading for me right now but I think that is my side’s problem, not yours, laptop has had a sulky day, perhaps feeling rained in. Do you know that we had approx 25% of our annual quota in 0.18% of an annum.

Health and strength to you and to Darryl (still has in his attic or cellar or out-tray my thankyou for judging his new-book award circa 2016; I'd had no idea there was such a thing but he repeatedly said it was about to be delivered).

Hou moed, hou koers, keep Canada beautiful and SA too, and Richmond most of all.

Trane en knop in die keel! Well done! Dis sommer net bedonnerd. En ja, boekbedonnerd ook ek en julle (translated: tears and a catch in the throat! Well done! It’s just bedonnerd. And yes, Bookbedonnerd = me and you guys) (comment posted to the Booktown Richmond YouTube channel)

Well done on your lovely little video. I probably have hardly any idea how much work is required to produce a 10-minute video.
Some lovely memories.

Such a shame they are in financial dire straights. I hope this will help them gaining the support required to keep going. Have shared on FB and considering how to best do on Twitter.
