The Cocky Potter and Me: My Autobiography
My autobiography, The Cocky Potter and 'ME', tells my story from when I was aged about five. Born in 1933, I grew up in Cape Town where I was educated and where I graduated as a structural engineer. I spent 2 years in England in the mid 50s, working for one of the top Structural Consultants in London; an excellent exercise and a very rewarding work experience for me. During my stay in the UK, I undertook a 3 month motorcycling trip round the Continent, with a male South African friend of mine on pillion. On our return from the continent we stopped for a night at a youth hostel in Holland. Awakening the next morning I was unable to get out of bed, I felt very ill and found I could not stand. I was bed-bound for three days before I felt able to get up and finish the ride back to Earls Court. To this day I don't know what actually caused that strange episode. Returning home in 1956, I went back to my old job, still a practicing engineer, but I then opened a Coffee Bar in the Cape Town University suburb of Rondebosch which turned out to be a huge success, and which I sold-on after a few years at a handsome profit. I then resigned from the Engineering company and changed my employment to a Fibreglass fabricating company. While employed by them, and over the next couple of years, I built myself a 34ft ocean going yacht.Then once again things took another turn.I got married in 1963: But my new wife was no sailor, so I sold the almost completed yacht to an Englishman who paid me in pounds Streling, which was deposited into a recently opened Bank Account in my name. So with British funds in place, and now with a young son, we immigrated to the UK in 1966.I lived and worked in Ealing for a couple of years before being transferred to Birmingham to open an office in Wolverhampton for the Company. With the proceeds from the sale of yacht we bought a house in Staffordshire. My wife then produced our second child, a daughter. But more changes were afoot.I gave up engineering, and we moved down to the South Coast at Chichester where I worked for Burns Shipyard in Bosham; upgrading the yards facilities. I'd bought a beauty of a little yacht and I was in my element, but It was too good to last. Once the Works alterations were complete, I was out of work and on my way once more.The next move was huge. We moved 'lock stock and barrel' to the Highlands of Scotland, where I became a Craft Potter and where I finally found my feet in every way and with complete satisfaction - where I lived very happily and productively for the next twenty-two years, until my forced retirement due to health problems in 1993. Unfortunately, after a couple years, and more health problems, divorce intervened; so it was back to the beginning, to start again.But from disaster came unexpected hope. I re-met an old flame from the fifties; a young lady that I used to work with, and with whom I had had a fling some 50 odd years earlier. We are now married. Within the past seven years, the wheel has made a full revolution - and hopefully it will be all freewheeling from now on - God Willing
