Just back from the meet and it was great fun. Many thanks to the organiser, PL, and the ladies who provided such lovely salads, pap sous, yummy chocolate cake and champagne! :dance: All the right ingredients for a lovely day with great company!! Spooky's pap is indeed as good as we'd heard but he is not giving away any secrets as to method......... I did try!!

Many thanks everyone, it was a most enjoyable day and it was delightful to meet a few new faces from the forum. :wink: :D

Unfortunately the meet we all look forward to for so long is now finally over! But as Skillie mentioned it was great fun!!!! :dance:

Thanks to Skillie and Richardt for joining in and bringing those snacks an LOVELY Koeksisters the best I've had in a long time!Image

Boorgatspook thanks to you too for joining! Was awesome meeting at last and people believe me that Krummelpap was to die for with some of Siobain's Sheba on top! Thanks also to Siobain and SO for joining and helping with organising! :clap: Siobain also sponsored the Champers for the celebration! :dance:

Last but not least Mom (Nkumbe) thanks for the salads and cake was awesome! Also for helping in preparation for the meet!

And now to Christo who did not pitch? :huh: Had you there in our thoughts as well as Wacktazz and all other 'mites and stiffies! :P

Thank you all for this wonderful day and we must do it again soon! Will report back on the day a little later with some stunning pics from Siobain and Skillie if we may use them! :twisted:

To everyone who made the day possible - thanks :thumbs_up:
To everyone who turned up, thank you - It was indeed great to have meet you all! Some "old" faces and the rest who I have met for the first time. Yet again, its a honor to be part off such great 'mites! :clap:

@ PL: You got a BIG HUG which I supposed to give you, but I got the message to late :roll:

I think the 'mites can look forward to some awesome photo's! :wink:

Isn't it a bit late for playing PL? A weaver, cormorant and a kind of duck (morhen or something) If you want the species you must wait until tomorrow :lol: :lol:

No more excuses Spook! All these photo's have just been photoshopped she has not
been traveling anywhere...you are just too possessive.


Examine said evidence.....the treasure had been found, Miranda is back with Spook. Next to his frostie as well :hmz:
She was supposed to be with Skillie at this time.
