Naskrif: Pitte het in sy argiewe gaan krap en die gediggie wat Ronel se ma, Babs, geskryf en aan Oom Lampie en Cecilia opgedra het vir my gegee. NABETRAGTING OOR RONEL Soet is die herinnering In my arms Kleineding Wonderlik die dag Toe jy begin lag. Eerste treetjies is gegee, Val-val was daarmee. Kindersiektes klein en groot, Huil en lag, ‘n hoë noot.

Skooldag het ook aangebreek, Moeder het haar naampie vasgesteek. Haar eie snik het in haar keel, Haar stomgeslaan, haar hart so week. “Moeder, nee, dit is nie so, My juffrou sê skrywe bo!” My juffrou dit! My juffrou dat! My juffrou het reg gehad.

Sit ons Oujaarsaand onder die ou Tambotie op Tert se plaas anderkant Rashoop naby Blaaubank. Sê Tert: “Ja-nee julle, soos die jare aanstap, so word ons ook ouer.” Stem ek en Pitte saam sien, want ons is nie lus om te argumenteer nie. Veral nie op Oujaarsaand nie. Die vrouens is in die kombuis doenig en ons sit en suig aan ‘n ietsietjie. “Ja,” sê Tert weer. “Ek word nou oud.” “Oudword is ‘n kopding,” sê Pitte. “Hou nou op aandag soek.” “Ek sê nie ek is oud soos in oud nie,” kom dit weer van Tert. “Dalk net bietjie ouerig, maar nog nie oud soos in oud nie. Ek is darem al oupa.” “Nou ja. So what. Jy is nou ouerig en wat daarvan”, vra ek om die ding uitgepraat te kry. Want ek weet, sien, dat Tert nie gaan rus voordat hy nie klaar is nie. “Jy is nou ouerig, en wat daarvan,” vra ek weer. “Wat maak dit nou van jou? ‘n Helikopter pilot?” “Ou Mannie, dit beteken ek het sover ‘n klomp mense oorleef. Mense wat ek geken het en liefgehad het, wat dit nie tot hier gemaak het nie. Vriende, kollega’s, Oupa’s en Ouma’s, ouers, ander familie, mentors, onderwysers, skoolmaats, bure en ‘n hele klomp ander. Gelukkig het my kinders darem sover die lewe kon oorleef .” “En ons,” sê Pitte. “Ja, en julle. Ons kan baie dankbaar wees. Vriendskappe soos ons s’n is baie kosbaar omdat dit so skaars is,” sê Tert. “Onthou jy vir Edwin Steenkamp, ou Mannie?” vra Tert. My kop werk oortyd. Die naam wil ‘n klokkie lui, maar ek weet nie mooi waar nie. “Edwin Steenkamp,” sê ek, “Edwin Steenkamp.... Jong, nee. Ek kan nie mooi onthou nie. Vertel maar.” “Ons was in graad een in 1964 en Edwin in Standerd een. Hulle het so drie huise bokant ons gebly in Pienaarstraat. Ek en hy het in die oggend saam skool toe gestap. Soos gewoonlik het

ek het een middag net voor vyf, soos my gewoonte was, vir my pa by ons hek gewag wanneer hy van die werk af kom. Edwin en sy suster het met hulle fiets gespeel. Dan was die een op die fiets terwyl die ander een hom jaag, en dan was die ander een weer op die fiets en hy word gejaag. Ek het die heel tyd gekyk hoe hulle speel. Dit het vir my baie lekker gelyk, want op daardie stadium kon ek nog nie fiets ry nie alhoewel ek vreeslik graag wou. ‘n Groot kar het van Rutgersweg se kant af gekom met ‘n vreeslike spoed net toe Edwin op die fiets was. Hy kon nie vinnig genoeg rem nie en Edwin het die kar te laat gesien. Ek het gestaan en kyk hoe die kar Edwin teen volspoed tref dat hy deur die lug trek tot teen die telefoonpaal. Hy het soos ‘n lap teen die paal afgeval en in ‘n bondeltjie aan die voet van die paal bly lê. Daar het oom Piet Ras hom later in ‘n wit doek getel en weggery. Hy sou nou een en sestig gewees het as hy bly leef het.” “Ja, en daardie tyd was daar nie iets soos beraders nie,” sê Pitte. “Die lewe het gebeur en jy moes maar net oor dit kom en aangaan.” “En dan was daar Ronel Robbertse. Onthou julle haar?” gaan Tert aan. “Ons was in standerd vyf in 1970 toe sy ook deur ‘n kar in Verwoerdlaan doodgery is. Sy was toe nege jaar oud. Haar pa het ‘n groentewinkel in die straat gehad.” Oooo ja,” sê Pitte, “ek onthou die oom. As ek dit nie mis het nie, het hy in ‘n rolstoel by die kasregister gesit. My mahulle het altyd daar groente en vrugte gekoop. Dan het my pa ons altyd getreat met ‘n botteltjie Hubbly Bubbly koeldrank. Grenadella. Ja ek onthou haar. Haar ma het nog ‘n gedig geskryf vir die 1970 jaarblad. Ek moet nog daardie jaarblad iewers hê. Ek sal bietjie soek.” “Asseblief ja. Ek wil dit vreeslik graag hê,” sê ek. “Ja, so is dit. Ek wonder

of oom Lampie nog lewe,” sê die pad. Dit voel soos golwe wat Pitte. oor jou spoel, maar tussen die golwe is daar weer blaaskans; “Ja julle,” sê ek, “ek wens ek is daar lewe,” vul Tert aan. kan gewoond raak daaraan dat “Maar die hoogste golwe is goed mense na-aan jou doodgaan soos huweliksherdenkings, maak nie saak wat die verjaarsdae, Kersfees. Veral omstandighede is nie. Maar dan Kersfees, sê Pitte. “Kersfees wil ek ook nie dat dit nie saak bring die meeste herinneringe. maak of sommer net verby gaan Van tye wat goed was en tye wat nie. Almal het maar littekens wat minder goed was. Van hoop en getuig van liefde en verhoudings liefde. Van skeiding en verlange. wat ons met die mense om ons Eensaamheid. Iewers klou ons gehad het.

Ek dink dis die hoogste golwe wat die lewe na jou kant “Ja,” sê Tert terwyl hy weer ‘n toe kan slinger.
