I'm having pity on you! :tongue: If it's raining in Pretoria like it's been doing in Vanderbijlpark whole day, you certainly don't want to be sent on 'hane-catching-mission'! :lol: Attention Duques - you want to go to Mapungubwe, right? Don't try me. :twisted:

I will simply rise above this wet muddy "haan vang" story by stating:

Cheers!
