Wish you could have seen the doc's face when I asked about shooting......He thought I meant competition stuff, so I told him 'no 458 elephant guns'....... Think he may be even more careful.......

:gflower: EJ will :pray: that all goes well with your op.

Just think how bright, crisp and clear everything will be thereafter. Especially with your super holiday coming up, you will see everything so much clearer, to fill your memory bank with :D

Did a sunset drive tonight in the rain. Still reasonable sightings.....starting with a leopard in tree near the BnD turning. It had been there most of the day too! Gone when we came back later, predictably! Also had impalas, crocs (a couple of biggies at Matjulu bridge), rhnos, hyena, genet, 2 spotted eagle owls, zebras, scrub hares, duiker.

Rain has stopped at the moment.

Sunset drives in the rain can be fun, although if the rain pelts into the cabin, that may make things more miserable. Shows you that the animals don't mind the rain too much, as they came out to pose for you, EJ. :thumbs_up:

Good luck with your eye op EJ. I'm sure all will be well. :gflower: When do you get back to Malelane ? We will be in the area from 9th to 16th November.

Ej
Just to wish you well with the eye op on Monday -- we trust all goes off well and that they can do the other eye in 2 weeks time.
Speedy recovery - We will all be thinking about you.
Please give us regular progress reports

Terry

Thanks!

Been in Skuks since Thursday, but no time to get outside camp. Heard hyenas around, and lots of bird life.

Course has gone well, and just this morning to complete now. Not easy doing some lecturing with wonky eyesight, but I managed. Harder still using the computer....but only a few more days and all should start to improve again.

Hi EJ. Yes we sometimes don't appreciate good eyesight but when we dont have perfect sight we start to appreciate our blessings. Thinking of you and hope in a couple of weeks you will be fine. Regards, D.
