Ode to Julia – by Phillip Vecchio

We dreamed of Africa, so hatched a date

But work is too busy, and life is a state

Who to help but a knowing hard tryer

Our ultimate investment in Julia Fryer

The brief was easy, so saturate the best

Budget and planning then put to the test

She knows her stuff and reads me well

Smoothly convincing, no need to hard sell

Julia is practiced but plans with her heart

Beautifully filling our African cart

We Caped, safaried and Victoria Falled

Mesmerised by animals, appearing as called

You mean what you say and say what you know

I will always admire your get up and go

Your ultimate aim is to serve and to please

Not to mention the sparring and a good client tease

Emotional goodbyes but memories for life

Saturated happiness for girl, man and wife

Leaving, believing, so special a place

Smiles and tears embellishing your face

Memories made, and colours so bold

Of sunsets and scenery, and stories untold

As avalanching memories souvenir your soul

Thank you to Julia for her sensational role


If ever you travel to continent Afrique

Looking for quality and a journey unique

Unpassable Julia, undoubtedly Iconic

Our toast to you is the best gin and tonic.
