Fred and Zena Bone - A Labour of Love

Fred and Zena Bone – Boxes to Guyana

When I dropped by the Maryland, USA, home of Fred Bone and his wife Zena last Sunday, I was shown ten sizable containers in their garage. The jumbo-size cardboard containers were already packed, sealed and ready for shipment to Guyana. Fred hails from New Amsterdam, Berbice, and Zena of the Stoll clan, hails from the lower Pomeroon river.

Fred is a retired University Professor. Zena is the overseas-based Manager of the attractive Adel’s Place Tourist Resort, located on the lower Pomeroon river. Fred and Zena Bone are two overseas-based Guyanese, who like many others, have not given up on doing what they can, for those who need a hands-up, back in their native Guyana; especially the youngsters. Both Fred and Zena are matured individuals who still have the energy, and spend lots of their time sourcing items to send to Guyana.   Continue reading

BEING GUYANESE – by Dave Martins of the “Tradewinds”.

This speech was delivered in February 2008 when Dave lived in the Cayman Islands.  He now resides in Guyana.

BEING GUYANESE – by Dave Martins of the “Tradewinds”.

Dave Martins 2010 CDSpeech in Orlando Florida, February 2008.   Website:  http://www.dtradewinds.com/

There’s a Guyanese friend of mine, Vibert Cambridge, many of you know him, who was visiting me in my home in Cayman a few years ago, and in the course of a long gaff about this and that – both Vibert and I love a good gaff – Vibert, who is a very intellectually astute banna, suddenly said to me. “Dave, all these things I know you’re involved in…what would you say your life has been about?” I had to stop and think for a bit, but my response to Vibert then was, “My life has been largely about observation and music.”

I say largely, because there have obviously been other things – you know, one or two lovely ladies; some wonderful friends all over the map; a powerful family – but mostly observation and music, and I put observation first, because that’s the key.
