Some people call him Terry Kersten.. not out of any disrespect for the good Golphin name, but to clarify who they’re talking about. See, Terry married Marita Kersten, and works with his brother-in-law Tony Kersten, who farms just behind the other brother-in-law Mike Kersten. And of course, everyone around knows his father-in-law, John Kersten. They’re the Kersten clan, and he’s one of them!
So, Terry Golphin happened to mention that he bought an old mini-excavator to save himself having to rent one to fix a few tiles and other things around his place. Since I needed to dig a trench for the Hydro line for my solar panels, I asked if he ever let anyone else use it? “Sure!” was his reply, and he even delivers! So Sunday saw the arrival of a well used, but still fully functional mini-excavator. Monday meant that my Brother-in-law John had to go back home, but we managed to do a little digging with it before he left… Great fun!
