Hope you could make head or tail of my notes as to who stole what from whom and then what got replaced with what etc.....

Eagerly awaiting the next episode! :popcorn: :popcorn:

PS: I thought you said that no photos would be posted where we didn't look like a million dollars....if this is what a million dollars looks like, I am glad I am poor! :twisted: :twisted:

And so the game continued....TonyT's SO chose from the table..a useful flask and some yummy eats

Image


And then it was Tony T's turn.....
Oh dear.... being the gentleman that he is he apologised most prefusely for what he was about to do...but he did it anyway :big_eyes: ...he stole the cheetah print from Munchkin. Poor Munchkin was devastated. :cry: It was safe in Tony T's hands..the print having been stolen 3 times could no longer be stolen....

Image

But half crying :cry: half laughing :D she very quickly yanked the book from Hugh....

Image

Hugh was shocked :big_eyes: but sharp and she grabbed the potjie from Rookie.

Image and that could no longer be stolen.

Rookie recovered quickly and within seconds she had grabbed the book from Munchkin...poor Munchkin..she was having a hard time.....

Munchkin chose from the table...a nifty little knife sharpener. I think her SO was thrilled with this present.
Arks went next and also chose from the table....coffee mugs and yummies.

Image

I was next and everybody was expecting me to steal the sherry but I fancied the fondue set...Wanderw was not happy with me. Wanderw then chose from the table .....

Image

There was one more present on the table and one more person to play...Doug. He considered his options ( the present was wrapped in pink Little Miss Kitty paper) but decided against stealing and helped himself to the pretty little pink present. He was extremely happy with his multi-tool that was wrapped in pink paper....:) :) :) You were clever there Hugh !!!
And that the brought the thieving game to an end....it was now time to get on with the serious busines of braaiing.

Again we had a wonderful meet...some mites could not make it and they were missed :cry: , good to see the regulars again and wonderful to meet Buglette. And although Arks has been to a meet or two in Cape Town it was her first "Silly Season" meet. :) :)
Thank you to all for the lovely food, the wonderful presents and all the laughs. :gflower: I have said it before and I will say it again....The Cape Town 'Mites Rock !!!!!!!! :clap: :dance: :clap: :dance:

Sorry to Munchkin but that print was never safe, you must agree. But nice try, turning it face down on your lap hoping people would think it was a tray :lol:

Well, I'll definitely be introducing the stealing game to family and friends - should liven up our traditional get togethers. Christmas will never be the same again!

One thing I've learnt is that you need a strategy in this game to outsmart the thieves but of course it all depends on what number you draw at the start. That's where your luck begins.

Thanks again Cape Town forumites. Caracal is right - you certainly rock! :dance: :dance: :dance:

Sorry for the horrendously late reply - had to rush off at sparrows on Sat morning after the meet to daughters graduation, then straight home to pack the car and off to KTP - and only got in at 11 last night to find over 200 emails waiting to be sorted and read :slap: - but a HUGE thank you to Caracal and SO for a lovely meet and to all you lekker CT 'mites - was so good to get together with you all again and catch up and also to meet Buglette and spend time with TonyT again :thumbs_up:

When's the next meet :whistle: ?

:lol: Spot on Tony, SO thought the same (that print was hot property) , but his / our game plan was that if we lost the pic, we would then focus on the book..........and then :doh: Rookie blindsided us.......... :big_eyes: ! Next year.......... :hmz: I have acquired a knive sharpening tool.........."the knives are out - be warned you fellow thieves" :tongue:

Morning all you CT forumites. Compliments of the season............ its my first time posting in this section and would like to propose a get together.

Like a lot of you, we just cannot get enough of KTP and visit at least twice a year. Back in Cape Town we think about it all the time so I want to put this out there for you consideration and comment:

I think it would be a great idea if we can arrange a get together of like minded people who love KTP. As an avid photographer, I thought we put together some of our images to show at this evening. Not only the good ones, but images that will spark conversation and stories. I have Matthew (AstroMat) who is keen to give us a little talk on his Leopard identification Research/program ............. and if we can find other people that can give us a talks on KTP topics, all the better.

Rather than just gathering for a 'meet and greet', lets put together an evening of photography, stories and talks .............. what do you guys think and suggest ?
Travel Reports:
Through the eyes of a couple: KTP won
!Xaus Lodge: A brief story.
