Enjoy your vacation
Get lots of rest and time out
Get a good rest and regards to the family.
She need that be working hard enjoy your vacation
This post should have been abolished long ago .The GG salary could go to the children’s home or females suffering from domestic abuse . The minister of social care could easily cover her duties which amount to visiting centenarians,hell I’d do her job for free
Going on leave,as far as I am concern you are on permanant leave.Shaking a few hands and visiting the old people.Wow, it must be nice to be in your position,doing nothing.
My dearest (cousin) GG and Dame Sandra Mason, wherever you are going, get some much needed rest and know that God has already gone ahead of you to make it safe. Enjoy.
The GG does much more than just visit the centenarians. Please stop claiming to have a great educational system and 98% literacy then come and make silly uneducated remarks like ‘what does the GG do’. If you didnt want the GG, then you would have supported Barbados going Republic.
Oh dear she is probably exhausted from the cocktail parties and visiting the old folks that lived to be 100.Wish I had your job doing nothing.
I thought she was on leave ever since
Sweet lady enjoy it too the best
this woman is timeless and beautiful
What kind of leave?
That anachronistic post needs to be abolished?
Safe flt n have some quite time
Let’s be honest here…. did everyone knew who she was ?…
I knew Sandra as a school girl travelling to school on the school bus, she was beautiful then and still is today. I have not seen her in over 50 years, but still remember her jovial temperament.
You could very well join the retrenchment list. ….
And don’t come back! ,
Kevin Alleyne,had it not been for the EASY MONEY she would collect ,a once ACTIVE woman like she was, might have REFUSED that offer.
I am sure that at times she would have wished she had more to do and’ walk bout’ as she like.
Yes Janice Joseph,would still get a good look down from head to toe and stare from harry turnover, and a look back too.
Question what does this the person of this title GG really does besides shaking hands of centurians and rubbing shoulders with visiting dignitaries,her salary could be better spent,and are taxpayers paying for her trip even though it is a private vacation.
People you need to educate yourselves about the extent of the GG’s role other than what you see in the news, as so much more happens in the background and before she got this position she was a well known and knowledgeable judge and I still believe she has a lot to offer to the judiciary system
Weather you like it not, this present GG is an outstanding individual. We Barbadians should be proud of her. She did not create the post of “GG”. If we want to abolish that post, we as citizens can. All we have to do is to change our present status to being a Republic. Simple.
The Governor-General of Barbados is the representative of the Barbadian monarch (presently Queen Elizabeth II).
Yet Barbados is “supposed” to be Independent !!
