Island-sitting anyone?

 

An American friend, who owns an island in the Kingdom of Tonga, is looking for someone to island-sit the place for the next six months. It's a breathtakingly beautiful place with a breathtakingly beautiful residence.

The successful 'island-sitter', apart from being self-reliant, reliable and responsible, ought to have some 'hands-on' skills to be able to carry out some maintenance and make improvements to the place.

Ongoing maintenance includes, but is not limited to, cleaning of watertanks, looking after the boats, servicing the generators, grass-cutting and keeping pathways free of weeds, and shutting down the place in case of a storm warning.

 

 

As my friend says, "We can't offer any pay but consider all the benefits of staying on the island at no cost and access to all houses and boats."

 

 

Here are some more enchanting images.

During a lady's medical examination, the doctor says: "Your heart, lungs, pulse and blood pressure are all fine. Now let me see the bit that gets you ladies into all kinds of trouble."

The lady starts taking off her underwear but is interrupted by the doctor.

"No! No! Don't take off your clothes. Just stick out your tongue!"
