Robert, one of the guys who works for RMan, accompanied him to assist in collecting the goodies from the auction. RMan purchased a whole bunch of used tyres which we intend to grow potatoes in. But Robert had another idea.
He made this:

Now I think that it is extremely clever. These chairs are definitely leave outside, all-weather outdoor furniture that are, apparently, extremely comfortable. I could use one of those, situated under one of a couple of existing trees (albeit (in this country) undesirable alien Australian Black Wattles) on the plot which provide shade, as a spot to just take a moment or two to sit and silently contemplate the view of the Traddouw Pass, and to quietly think of anything and everything in general :)
I love an entrepreneur who is willing to give of his spare time and effort, and thus, if anyone in Cape Town wants to contact Robert to order one for themselves, please e-mail me and I'll give you his contact number :)
