Pumpkin Payment

What prettier picture than wife E carrying a pumkin. There is a story behind this. I had installed two electric lights for a farm labourer, as a gift. When he saw how nicely these worked, he asked me for a third. When E heard it, she said: “You have already put in two for nothing! For a third he must pay!” She set off over a dirt track through the bush, to claim my payment. Here one sees her triumphant with the payment on her head (one carries things like this in Africa, of course).
