    Default Nuffy & Brukky

    Nuffy and Brukky are brothers who live in the country. They are 19 & 21 respectively. Although Brukky is the eldest, it is Nuffy who is the more insightful and industrious of the two. He generally finds the work for the two of them to earn a regular subsistence from.

    They pick coconuts and pimento and clear fields of overgrown weeds and other jobs for people of their district in the main, and sometimes beyond. They are honest lads, and because of this they have a good reputation and a constant supply of jobs.

    Today they are off to mr. Raymond's place located some 3 miles away up a winding and gradually ascending dirt and stone road, which after many years still awaits promised asphalt. They walk purposely and with conviction with their cutlasses, while Brukky also brings along a cruckos bag for a few bits and pieces that they are generally given as part payment for the work they'll be doing for mr. Raymond today.

    Having finally reached Ridgetop Mount, the area where the work is located, the two brothers began a quite sharp descent into a valley toward mr. Raymond's house. This valley and four others were lined from top to bottom with tall coconut trees that grew elegantly and seemed to be keeping watch like sentries over the valleys and all that was to be found within them.

    On reaching Ken's house (mr. Raymond's name) a maga dog raised it's head and vocals in a half hearted attempt to show it was doing the job it was fed to do, then began to wag it''s tail in recognition of the young men. Mrs Raymond ducked out of the detached kichen set at one corner of the yard and greeted Brukky and Nuffy with a friendly smile and a cordial greeting while wiping her hands clean and free of the grated coconut residues that gave away the chore she was doing inside of the aromatic smelling kitchen.

    Patsy (Mrs Raymond's name) told the lads where Ken could be found and cheerily said her goodbye before disappearing back into her kitchen. The brothers strode off in the direction of Ken and soon found him hard at work in a clearing surrounded by coconuts and their husks as he sweated and toiled at evacuating the nuts from their dried outer casings.

    Greetings over, Ken directed the two men by words and gestures toward the spot that their work of picking coconuts and then dehusking them would start. Brukky and Nuffy ambled off and began the skilful and quite dangerous task of lightening the burgeoning load from these stairways toward heaven trees.

    It was nine o'clock or there abouts when the picking of coconuts commenced, and steadily but carefully our dynamic duo pressed on with the monotonous but worthy of concentration work, until now, early in the afternoon. They had picked a few jelly nuts along with the hundreds of dried and mature ones, and were both sat on the roots of two trees taking a well deserved break and drinking the refreshing water and eating the soft meaty white flesh from the heavy green shelled husks.

    When they had been rested and refreshed, they began to gather all the picked coconuts from a central location at the bottom of the valley in a stream where they had come to a stop, and collected them into a pile on a relatively flat area where the dehusking began in ernest. In order to get the coconuts quickly and safely from their dried on husks, they first cut a couple of suitable thick sticks and paired them down into a sharpend point. They then pushed the sticks into the ground with the sharpened points protruding upwards. The coconuts were then forced down onto the spikes and easily opened up to relieve the nuts of the dried on casings.

    Three hours later, many dozens of coconuts were piled up in a great mound ready for the next stage of their preparation out of the valley and eventually to market or to be boiled down into oil, also destined for the market place or for local shops and the folks of the immediate district.

    With a hard day's work completed, Nuffy and Brukky asked Ken for a few of the coconuts and permission to dig a few Renta yams and to also cut a green buch of bananas. Ken readily agreed to the request and also paid the men before thanking them for their hard effort of work for the day, then he bid them goodbye. The men started the long trek up, up and finally out of the valley and back for home where the foodstuff would be gratefully received by their mother, father and numerous younger siblings who were so reliant on on the sweat that these two young men would shed in their attempts at helping to keep a poor family fed.

    It's early evening and our intrepid twosome have furnished their family with the main means for a hearty meal. Everyone is happy because all bellies have been adequately filled for this day. Their family consists of a partially disabled father who has suffered a mild stroke ,a determined and extremely hard working mother who is always on the go, and four younger sisters and two brothers. Their ages range from 16 years to 3 years and they all do their share to help the family pull in the right direction.

    The reason Brukky is so called is because he likes to gamble is hard earned money, even though his family try their utmost to discourage him from this habit. He plays cards with about ten other hardcore gamblers from about a five mile radius of the Jones's dwelling, because this is Nuffy and Brukky's real family surname. Brukky's real name is Delroy, and Nuffy's is Phillip.

    Nuffy is so called because he is quite an astute fellow. Some say he takes after his mother who also has a way of making the best out of seemingly very little indeed. Because of his astuteness, Nuffy saves most of his earnings and is able to treat himself to modest luxuries from time to time, as well as also doing the same for his family and even close friends.

    Right now, the lads have decided that they are going down to the few group of shops where three roads converge and has the name of Partridge Green. There they will meet up with friends for a get together and a soda or two, and Brukky might even get the chance to win back some of his money, or more likely lose even more of the little that he has worked so hard to gain.

    After a bathe and a change of clothing, they both strike out for the beckoning of Partridge Green laughing and joking as they negotiate the narrow footpaths leading down toward the main road that leads to their destination.

    When Brukky and Nuffy arrived at Partridge Green, dusk had given way to darkness and the only lights were from the lit lamps of nearby homes and the lights from the shops that made up the main area of this cosy village area.

    Already in attendence were grown men at a table playing the almost obligatory game of dominoes at one of the shop fronts, their voices cutting through the night air with a laughter here an an expletive there, while dominoes jumped up from the table as a slamming hand came down with unnecessary force.

    Nuffy and Brukky continued past this seen toward their favoured spot which is the shop located a few hundred yards further on around a slight bend, where they met up with three friends who went by the names of Slygo, Budhead and Tumpa who were being their usual loud and animated selves. They bbroke out into a half cheer, half jeer when they caught sight of the two brothers. Tumpa ran over and grabbed Brukky in a headlock and proceeded to run with him toward the shop as if to deliver a knockout blow with the aid of the wall to the hapless Brukky, while the others roared with laughter. Fortunately he released Bukky at the critical moment before any contact between head and wall could be made. Brukkky gave Tumpa a well aimed slap to the back of his head and told him in no uncertain terms what an idiot he was, but it was all taken in the light spirit that it was meant.

    The lads had a boisterous evening, especially when three of the local young females came down to buy a few essentials and to listen to that evenings episode of Dosimeena on the shop radio, a must listen soap opera as far as they were concerned. The ladies gave more than what they got in the verbal banter and exchange that ensued as the would be Romeos propositioned them with their less than discrete intentions, before the three lasses beated a defiant retreat back to their homes.

    Closing time came and everyone made their farewells and started off in three different directions and became lost in the gloom of the night which was puntuated with the lights emitting from twinkies and peenie walies. Silence descended on Partridge Green before the early dawn would give way to the first cockerel that would begin it's call to the other birds to join in the song that would greet the begining of a new day.

    Please excuse any obvious inaccuracies in descriptions etc.
