DROLLETJIES

This page is dedicated to all the news, events and other little “drolletjies” whether silly, funny or poignant. A tidbit is all we need sometimes, to inform, to enlighten, to amuse, to tickle or to pop a flea in an ear. Send YOUR “drolletjies” to jillwallaceauthor@gmail.com with the title DROLLETJIES and let’s all enjoy YOUR “GODS MUST BE CRAZY” moments!

*“Drolletjies”- Afrikaans for “Little Turds” but not in a smelly, disgusting way. Well – not always! Drolletjies are sometimes like chocolate raisins: sweet, delectable and wickedly decadent and other times like little nuggets: just big enough perchance, to make an impression.

 
My friend Priscilla's dog King.  Watch for this fine author's debut - it will knock your socks off. She's a top-of-her-game Paralegal, a cabinet designer, a world traveler, a past president of STAR, a skier and that's just what she does between Monday and Thursday!

Can you imagine Rebecca Ferguson as Iris?

Let’s start a trend on social media and see if we can make this untamed story into a Hollywood production!

 
 
Wanted to share my cool experience with all of you... 💵⠀ I popped into a local corner store to buy a lottery ticket - hey, a girl's gotta secure her old age pension somehow if she can't make the New YORK BEST SELLERs List - when the man in front of me EXPLODED with joy! He said, "2 days ago I won $50,000 on a $3 scratch and win". I swear the joy was coming out of his every pore. I said, "What will you do with your money?" This man, Charles, said, "I am going to pay my rent a year in advance... buy four new tires for my truck... a big ass TV... and I've had a broken tooth for a while so now I can go to the dentist". Bless him a million times. His joy will live with me for weeks. XX⠀
