Well it is that time of the year again...the Silly Season is on it's way.
That means it is time to announce the date of the Cape Town Forumite's "lekker chop and dop, name calling, present stealing and raucous laughter evening."

Why the pink font....well the colour pink tends to feature quite a bit at these "parties" ....enough said !!!

So the usual "bring and braai" be will happening on FRIDAY 25TH NOVEMBER at 19h00.

AND I am hoping to grab a few more new forumites......

Details will follow later..but please diarise date in the meantime !!!!! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

A few more of the few photos that I took

Firstly a photo of the lovely photo book that anne-marie had sent to me. Thank you anne-marie ..it is stunning and was admired by everybody. It is a collection of photos that anne-marie took while visiting Cape Town in Feb....and some mites featured in it...from the meet we had !!! :thumbs_up:

Image

and the presents just before the game started...

Image

Well Gavin drew number 1 so he got to go first ...clearly he cannot resist a "pink" box !!!

Image

Image

Image

As you can imagine it was soon stolen from him. He was not a happy man !!!!

Mari-ann did not take long to learn the art of stealing and she managed to pinch the cheetah mosaic...

Image

And Touareg was also very happy with his torch

Image

Unfortunately he waved it under my nose once too often so I helped myself to it...

Dreamer got a little confused at one stage and she "stole" my camera instead of a present... :big_eyes:

Image


Let me tell you there was much stealing , much laughter and of course the usual name calling !!!!
But again we had a wonderful time...
Thank you to all of those that were able to make it to the meet, thank you for the lovely contributions on the food side of things....and thank you for the boxes of chocolates and wine that were given to SO and I. :thumbs_up:
