I PM'd Sam to check on her status - she and family are okay. Their farm is under "new management", and still off-limits to her family.

Just to pique your interest, I'm waiting for permission to share some good news that they're expecting... (hint, hint)

Could have solved a lot of problems by dropping Bob on Iraq!

Even I would approve of that!

OKAY -- Sam said since I'd spilled so many beans already that I could spill the rest --

Sam and her husband are expecting another child in January!!

I lurk around this site quite a bit and have learned so much in the few months that I have been around here but this thread is so interesting that I completely forgot that I was on a photography site while reading it!

A fantastic read and I hope that this story has a happy ending.

All my best wishes to you and your family Sam!

Hi all! Thanks for all the good wishes! Yes, we're still in the land of the living and some serious persuasion even got us a telephone installed, so back in web-land as well, although the connection usually lasts about 53 seconds before I get cut off ... we seem to have one of those phone systems from the middle ages here.

The Story of an African Farm - yes, well, it's more like a soap opera with a seriously bad script - the latest is that the Chinamasa's have moved out (because they've got no water left) and given the place to someone else! Meanwhile, they've done to someone else what they did to us - given them 5 days to vacate their farm, so that's five or six farms they've taken now.

But we're in a relatively peaceful area now, although there is a bunch of warvets on the neighbouring property, who since moving on there have done absolutely no farming, but have cut down every tree on the place, to sell the timber as firewood. A quick buck is all most of these guys are after. Then when all the resources have dried up, they move on ...

Sam
