Spin Doctor

I received a call yesterday from a man who wanted to water his cows from my stream (pictured). This was quite true -- but the story took on quite a different "spin" when I received a call from son M. He had found a man on my property, he said, with a big pump -- who had laid a long pipe through my trees, to fill a dam somewhere -- from which he was watering his cows. OBSERVATION: M had a Swiss tourist with him -- who considered that South African behaviour is quite mad (or something). I erred on the side of generosity to the neighbours.
