17 October, Today, It is 466 days since my wife checked in to the Hereafter Hilton.
3 months to the day behind 17 July
4 + 6 + 6 = 16
6 + 1 = 7
This was all planned? Knowing Donna...
Now you are DEFINITELY flying by the seat of your pants. And the last gas fumes on a rag.
Brace For Landing!
This is a 2010 Sattelite image at altitude of 120 metres. The orbiting
height of a gunship. Close enough to "do you" - and far out enough to dodge

Donna is Bench No.7 right at the front. WHERE ELSE? Discover the Recurring Magic Se7en
The "X" is a bench installed after Google's last satellite mapping in 2010. Donna's bench became number Se7en.
Finally Installed. 17-10-2018. 17 July was our last good-bye...

Because there will be no one capable of getting all this done - I decided to have my plaque made at the same time. Now all that need be done - one day - is to take the plaque, with the design file lodged with my attorney, to a laser etching company to fill in the end date.
21-10-2018. 21 July is when I collected Donna's Ashes.
23 September at 11:42. The day I decided to put up Donna's bench. The Number on Donna's Cremation Cerificate is the registration of this vehicle.
The last two digits. The date I last saw Donna's face on July 2017, on her journey into The Light... and the date of this job 17 Oct 2018
21-10-2018. 3 days later. This car is parked where the first car and the service truck were parked. 21 July was the day I collected Donna's ashes.
Just 7 One Rand coins to throw into the foundation. Could have thrown a 2 and a 5 or three 2's and a one. Lucky Me!
My contractor, Sean, was an ex-Navy Diver. So now this is one soldier
to another. Recovery and demolition.This was their motto. He showed it
to me after reading "Semper Fidelis" on Donna's plaque...
"Sermper in Excreta"... Aways in Shit!
Out of ALL the potentials on Gumtree.... I find another Soldier to do a Soldier's work....
How could it NOT HAVE a 17 in it?
10-07-2018. He was amused and astonished.
One minute after leaving his office, I took this picture at the end of his block and sent it to him. We had just finalised Donna's Estate. One year to the day, that I ID'd Donna's body at the morgue
There is Accident, there is Coincidence, and there is Synchronicity.
And there IS A PLAN. Killing all three of those concepts. Dead in the water.
Pour Yourself a Drink. You Will need it. If you do not drink, you WILL LEARN HOW, After this. STRAP IN!...
