- Apr 1 2:32 PMDear Vyrle and Dolly, and Josh and Mrs. Josh Owens
We would like to add our congratulations to you, Vyrle and Dolly, and
an even more hearty congrats and "Best Wishes" to Josh and his wife.
I would also like to share an anecdote about Josh. I was going to
send it personally but it was too good to keep private and what
better forum to disseminate a juicy one than the Ujeni.
Well it goes like this....Remember the dedication ceremony of
Roopangi Kadakia's Water Project in Zomba? That was spring of 1995
or so. You attended the ceremony with Jane Bonin, Ambassador
Chaveas, and Josh. The ceremony took place in the village up in the
hills above Zomba. During the ceremony, Josh and I sat next to each
I acted as his translator when the Chief of the village spoke.
During the Chief's speech I translated for Josh the following: "Thank
you for joining us today to be our meals. We promise to make your
demise quick and painless. By the looks of you all you will be
Of course, Josh said, "No. No. and No." with each translation.
I am glad he was not so gullible and it did not scare him off joining
Anyway, he did get his dig in too.
At the banquet afterwards at Zomba City Hall, he asked me if one of
the meats we were eating was "animal or human?"
I think it was that moment I knew he would make it.
Please extend our good wishes again. And remind him to have fun too.
Rey and Robin Sampaga
