Gobel was a handyman in the village.  He could build or fix just about anything.  The two of us built the shelves in the Library at the primary school in the village.  Unfortunately what little money he made went to buying Very Strong Rum, St. Vincent's own over-proof rum.  At 170 proof (85% alcohol) it literally burns your throat and stomach as you drink it.  He struggled with alcohol for a long time before his liver finally gave up and he died and few months ago.   (image by ryan brooks)
