Oh my word..what a fantastic weekend has been had here in Cape Town..the weather was absolutely fantistic. :D :thumbs_up: We went straight to Speir from the airport on Friday. Thank you Moose for a lovely morning. :clap: We went to Boulders in the afternoon....thank you penguins for entertaining us. :clap: Saturday was spent at Cape Point and Table Mountain.... whales, baboons opening car doors :big_eyes: , eland and bontebok were just a few of our highlights and our Saturday evening meet was just awesome. :thumbs_up: :clap: :dance:
Thank you so much to everybody that joined us.....thank you for the yummy salads. :dance: Thank you Anne-marie for sharing your wonderful photos and experiences of KTP with us...... and thank you to everybody for making Anne-Marie feel at home at Cape Town. Anne-Marie is now safe and sound at her next destination...Berg-en-Dal... and is getting herself ready for 6 weeks in Kruger. :twisted: :wink:

Thank you again to the forumites that travelled quite far to be with us last night...but hey.. Anne - Marie travelled even further !!! :clap: But it did serve as a reminder as to why the forum is so special to me.......you guys rock ....it is as simple as that. :thumbs_up:
@ p@m..we missed you. Hope everything is okay ! :D

Photos ..you want photos ????? I don't think any were taken. :roll: I am not sure what everybody else was doing but I was doing a fine job of burning the mielie bread !!!!! :redface: So I really didn't have time to take photos...

But a little burnt offering.....
Moose and Anne -marie playing Klick, Klack, Kodak ( private joke :D )

I had been looking forward to this weekend for months now, and i'm so sad it's all over!

BIG thank you to Caracal and Anne-Marie for such a wonderful day on Saturday. And it was fantastic to meet so many super-cool forumites on Satuday night. You're all awesome! :dance:

I hope everyone else gets to meet Anne-Marie! She is completely wonderful and has so much passion for her travels. I bet her next month in Kruger is going to be incredible! :mrgreen:

And the bread was lovely :thumbs_up: (and whoever made the broccoli salad- WOW. You made me like broccoli!)

I am not only calling.....I am yelling and I am shouting...to all Cape Town Forumites.

Again the Silly Season is almost upon us and it time we all got silly together. :dance: :dance: :dance:


For now...
Book the Time....18h30
Book the Date....28th Nov
Book the Venue...my house of course !!!

During the past year many new Cape Town Forumites have joined the forum...it is now time to show your face !!! Come on I dare you....

And it will be a double celebration..it is the forum's birthday on the 27th !!!!

It will be the same story...."Bring & Braai"
Bring a Present for Dreamer and Wannabe Nerd to fight over...they have both promised me that they are going to be on their worst behaviour ......should be fun !!!!!!!

By the way ...you do not have to be a Cape Town Forumite to join in on this celebration...if you happen to be in Cape Town at the time you are more than welcome :D .....you just have to bring a bigger present :wink:

Excuse me ...I must rush...I have to think about the contents of a certain "pink box"

Right the bread is done...

Image

I think I managed to bake it this time Annalie...not cook it. :roll:

Judging by the rather brown bits on top it was touch and go though :redface:

(I never did profess to enjoy being in the kitchen)

What great evening and a huge thank you from myself and SO to Caracal and Doug for laying out the red carpet for us all. :clap: :clap: :clap: It really was an amazing group of people and we are really a very lucky bunch to be have been able to share such fantastic conversations and laughter and food with each other.

The pressie game was a really good chuckle and clearly theres a history :hmz: :lol: Bit of a scrum down at times with a little technique required but I picked up a couple of valuable tips for next year (Thanks Dreamer :D :D ) along with my wooden bookmark(for my Roberts) and kruger mozzie candle. :thumbs_up:

The broccolli salad was great :clap: ,the potato bake sublime :clap: ,the mountains of biltong were neverending and the kameeldoring towers burnt down at the perfect pace to remind us all of where we would all be going back to sooner or later because the pull is just too strong for any of us to stay away too long.And what a great thing to have in common.

I still didnt get around to chatting to everyone but I will just have to do it next time round :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Thanks again guys :D

Right the kitchen is done ..
time for some fun !!! :D

Image

The presents !!!

Dreamer explain the rules of the present game and everybody chose their number....this detirmines the order in which you play.

Image

Dreamer, jaybabe and jaybabe's SO chosing numbers...and as illustrated by jaybabe's SO... no looking when chosing a number. :wink: :clap:

Image

Mashona loves grabbing the bix boxes but this yummy box of goodies was soon pinched by Wirlwind.
Mashona then ended up with gloves..not sure if there were gardening gloves or braai gloves.....I don't think he kept those for longer either.

Image

AjayB's SO, jaybabe and jaybabe's SO sizing up the game....but they had got the hang of it by the time their turn came.....there was a major amount of stealing that went on !!!

Eventually it was Wannabe Nerd's turn....
boy oh boy...did she scrutinise that table but eventually made up her mind.....

Image

And was she happy with the contents....

very very happy...

Image

Wannabe Nerd was really thrilled with this present....according to her it would "cover a hole in the wall ". But sadly for her it seemed that AjayB's SO had a hole in the wall that needed covering as well...

Image


BUT....our other Newby jaybabe's SO had wasted no time in picking up the bad habits of the thieves around him and soon the selfsame hole covering present was at his feet. :D

Image

Needless to say this present was stolen one more time....( I think)...I think it may have gone all the way to the West Coast with TonyT's SO.
Not sure about that one though..pls correct me if I am wrong.
