Doesn't she just know how to rub ones nose in it hey? :twisted:

Tip #2 to finding Wild dogs over the cricket weekend:
Don't try and find them yourself!
They all stand there outside the gate, with wagging tails waiting for Jose. They then run next to her car for ki......lometers on end before they make a DOUBLE :shock: kill right next to the road! :shock:
As if that's not enough, they then come and pose for countless pics with expressions of "did you see that??? Shall we do it again??" :? :mrgreen:

Mrs Stark wants to fix up the house. :( I keep trying though... recently some stock options matured and she asked me how much they were worth. I said "4 flights to Kruger, plus car rental". She didn't bite. :x
