    Hi Maatjie
    Het net vir jou ‘n lekker Naweek kom toewens
     dit is lekker warm hier by my dit is die rede hoekom ek nie wil terugkeer na die ou Transvaal
    Wysheid is beter as al die skatte van die wereld
    Ek het ook my wysheid bekom om aan die voete van ou mense te sit en net te luister daar het ek ook baie geleer.
    Ek was ook nooit tevrede met my lot, ek was te ambueeus om te aanvaar maar ek leer nog
    Hoekom kan ander ,,,,was altyd my vraag
    Haai wees vrolik en wees bly en lag en almal lag met jou
