Very , Very hard work in Kruger

Unread post by isinkwe » Thu Jul 27, 2017 6:54 pm

As the saying goes “hard work never killed anyone”!! Image

Oh really? Image I am not so sure about that. Be that as it may, I was about to find out. Image

As we all know, for any job to be a success, planning and preparationImage is key, so with that in mind I decided that my best strategy would be to take the day off, do nothing, hope for the best, have a fewImage, a couple more Image and just Image and at least try and make myself familiar with the surroundingsImage that I will have to work in.

After all, I did have an assistant joining me who I could blame if the boss was not satisfied with my performance.

While gently easing into my work environment Image I thought I would test my assistants ability , obedience and skill levels by handing over a Image. There was still enough time to make some fine adjustments to my assistantImage before the boss arrived Image
