The "Boys?" make a dash ( Here Kitty Kitty )

Unread postby Mashona » Fri Feb 06, 2009 4:47 pm

Wednesday Morning 11th, plus minus 04.00, one said Mashona will leave SO snoring in bed and do a serious duck for the Kgalagadi.....

This at short notice after one Dave decided on the spur of the moment he needed that red sand in his toes. Many things happen at Pedlars on the Bend as Granny Dreamer will tell you. Last week was no exception

Lets go next week he says, !!!!!! Whiskey dribbles down my chin????

You serious I ask...............yes he says, reading the SANP forums is making me sick in the head, Leopard here, Cheetah there......herds of Lions etc etc

What about our respective SO's I ask.........it was that serious twinkle in his eyes that made me pause .........Just us two he says....I hear you have a big lens...........faints on the spot... :big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes: ....... One of those Pedlars waitresses has to administer mouth to mouth with urgency. Decides to faint again, then again!!!

About 30 minutes later I am able to stagger up.....

Another wink from Dave and it was all settled........!!!!!!!!

Dave has never seen a Leopard up there ( plenty in Kruger however ) so promised him the best way to find one was visit the ladies loo at picnic spots, they are bound to come running out and scare the ^^%%$ out of you
Dave being a cross dresser saw no problem in that at all.........SO ITS LEOPARD TIME for the BOYS!!!

Please watch this space for all sorts of nonsense, its going to be a very interesting trip, By the way look out for the PINK ribbon, Yellow does not suit Daves make up

Is it not quite amazing the things you HAVE to do before you leave

This morning

All camera batteries charged and checked
Window mount tried and tested, ( still not happy )
Bean bag unpacked
Mini fridge found
Spot light ( internal ) found
Bird Books
Signs of the Wild book
Torch
Heavy duty jack for the car
Jumper cables ( Just in case Dave needs a fibrilation )
Tyre pressure guage
Tow line
Small tool kit

and this is all before the Whiskey!!!

Not too happy however, my pair of rather expensive Bino's have gone walk about in the last three months. Normally stored in my studio cupboard :hmz: :hmz: :hmz: :hmz: One wonders

Dave now a very pleased bunny, proud owner of a "new" second hand camera bag I gave him this morning. He was so happy with all the little "pockets" he can hide his lip stick and other "girlie" things !!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

This one. When I said at the confluence, I meant it :whistle:

Mind you most saffies have no clue about directions. When I asked where something was, looking from Olifants in Kruger, I was told ' behind that green tree'. Pick a tree, one of 3 million.

One Dreamer and One Caracal ( of recent Caracal fame )
Dreamer what an amazing "Cookie Box" you delivered!! All wrapped up in those spotty tiny things from Pedlars
Will consume with relish along with coffee between here and VANRYANSDORP.....

Girls will have to think something up for your impending trip? Pink ribbons?
