For starters, its Franky again trying to teach us - HOW NOT TO BRAAI,

AND THE BRAAI CONTINUES - PLUS THE CHIT-CHAT
THE WONDER OF BEING TOGETHER
IN THE END, THAT MEAT WAS NOT TOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD FRANKY

Just wanted to share a few pictures with you of my beloved and precious family, who not only all year round shower me with love and affection but went completely over the top on my birthday today.
What a celebration, 63 years young and the only way to do this is with my family. Forget about the diet and the golf and get stuck into some real good birthday food. We all had a great time and hey you only turn 63 once - THANK GOODNESS.
OH, HOW I MISS MY MIND
It's just a line to say I'm living and not amongst the dead
But I get oh! so forgetful and mixed up in my head
I've got used to my arthritis and to my dentures I'm resigned
I can manage my bifocals but oh, I miss my mind!
For sometimes I stand at the foot of the stairs
Must I go up for something, or have I come down from there?
And often before the 'fridge my mind is in great doubt
Am I putting the food away or am I taking it out?
So I fit's my turn to write to you, please don't get sore
I may think I've written and don't want to be a bore.
But remember I love you and wish that you were near
And now it's getting near mail time so I must say bye bye dear
And there before the mail box my face so very red
Instead of posting the letter I opened it instead!

Say "Hello" in FRENCH

the photos in the video are progress photos and contain the following
Another floor takes shape Riskon
We have lift off - lift shaft Riskon
Underground parking taking shape Riskon
Taking shape, ceilings started
Paint sample for outside Riskon
No, not all 11 official languages
More Paint samples - which one will it be
The sky is the limit - Riskon
Who said building is 'straight' forward
Investec's verandah - Riskon
Are lifts safe - Riskon
one thing is for sure, I see a building as just more as bricks and cement now and even know what a lift shaft looks like. My two men and their team have worked their buts off and may I say - A fishing trip IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY and well deserved ( the words in the VIDEO).
Before ‘The end of the road’ on our Journey to and through, Riskon, I would like to make the following comments…the photographs will be sent shortly. Paul Jr, as he is known, Paul Christopher Whitaker, took the Riskon site over from the BIG D (Dad), Paul Sr, and together with our staff. it was a journey and a vision for Paul Jr. If there are any accolades for this project…then I have to take my hat off to Paul Jr…and his wife, Corli, for their devotion to this project. We are very proud of both of them. Not forgetting Kaitlyne cutting teeth and sleepless nights! Paul Jr got his teeth into this project and it reminded me of the days when Mommy used to say ‘there is a difference between dirt, and clean dirt. Clean dirt shows you have done a hard days work! Never be ashamed of that’…….the legend lives on, the heritage from both Mom and Dad, Bless their souls!
RISKON PART 1
I'd like to take you on a journey of the building of Riskon Property Developments for Riskon, by Paul C Whitaker and Paul A Whitaker and our staff, who without them we could never have done it...I will be sending a few photographs at a time as you go through this journey with me, and I will make some personal comments when we turn over the last page of our journey
in picture form as we share this journey together!!
