the worst 4 x 4 x far

another happy customer

Following last weeks flour theft episode (see previous post) I have been behind on stock of ingredients. Today I have a new regular customer - see pic above, a shopkeeper - who wants 30 breads. Great so make him the breads! If only it was that simple. With no flour today and stock only due in tonight from Maputo I have sent a friend off to buy some flour in the local town (at an extortionate rate). My friends car got a flat tyre this morning so he took the Land Rover.
Not 5 minutes later I get a call: "the bottom has just fallen out of the car!".
Great! that's one car in Maputo, one with a flat tyre and the other along the way with the drive-shaft sitting on the road... This could be an interesting day. I have to try and get the car rescued first, then worry about how I'll get hold of some flour...


  1. I love the title to the post, very clever!

  2. I'm not sure if Land Rover have the advertising slogan "the best 4x4xfar" in the states but they do here and it didn't take us long to turn it around!
