I have had some wonderful "yellow ribbon" sightings. :D I have had to improvise on a couple of occasions when I have left my "yellow ribbon" at home.

For those who enter Punda and realise that they have forgotten their ribbon, there is a little fabric shop in a smallish shopping centre about 10kms before Punda Gate. It is on the left hand side of the road. Best selection of "yellow ribbon" that I have ever seen. 8)

I got mine (and Red Ribbon for Stiffnecks) from a shop in Bloemfontein. Across the road from Mimosa Mall. Very good selection too!

How about that for a yellow ribbon? These two little fellows played with it for about ten minutes. This was taken just before the Oliphants River Bridge travelling north from Satara last December.

I hope that they have left some of it for you Sparrow, if they didn't please get another one so that we can keep the tradition going.

Hi LD I think they gave up coz they couldnt get it off. Never worry about another one as I have about 5 metres of this yellow Tshirt material left which I keep in the carravan for just in case emergencies.

That's classic, Sparrow,

We have never had Hyenas pulling the ribbon but have had Baboons investigating it and giving it a tug, which is why we always knot it now and then tie a bow.
Don't want to be accused of littering the park, even with yellow ribbons!

I was wondering, what is the different ways to tie the yellow ribbon? I am a little worried that the ribbon will come loose.

I tie mine into a tight bow so it does not come loose nor flap while driving. I have see YRs tied in all sorts of ways, and all sorts of widths and lengths.

Does everyone know how the use of the Yellow Ribbon originated?

Here is a hint to who thought of the idea.

See here too:- Yellow Ribbon topic in Chit Chat

I seem to remember the use of a yellow 'ribbon' came from the fierce competition between SA and Oz on the rugby field and there was something about tearing a yellow rugby jersey to make a YR. :hmz:

Anyone able to help here :huh:

Lets try and keep this one going. If you meet a mite in the park please feel free to post the incident with the mites name and where you met.
