Hello Rosie :D



No, unfortunately not what I'm looking for :(

"A" for you and "1" for me - only at the end and if you have learnt your abc :wink:

Soho? .... a stinker? Not if you are there for tea :wink:

:hmz: Oh dear :lol: :lol: So.... if I go to Soho in New York first for tea before stopping off under the apple-leaf tree in Africa will I be doing well? Or are you just going to laugh at that too :wink:

I think I am stumped but I wont admit it!!

SoHo is also Small Office, Home Office, as in small business, as in one of the tea-room setups, e.g. Nkulu or such?

Spotted One, enjoy your Kruger outing! Or rather, probably, by the time you read this, I hope you have enjoyed your Kruger outing! :thumbs_up:

Thanks Rosie, I would love to have a cup of " real tea" with you - here on the stoep at CB!


The Bishop - Thanks, I will!

A clue to let you know how the cat's mind works .....



...... Soho, where we'll stop and have tea for three

So.. "t"...ho >> 3rd letter is "t" for Sotho (a language spoken by African people)

Connection isvery slow - see tomorrow!

PLACE


Lots and lots to tell! But first things first …..

Let me take you on a journey to Soho
where we’ll stop and have tea for three
"Soho" ... stop here ...and have "t" for "three" ("t" as 3rd letter)
(Sotho is a native language)


We are now in Africa, under an apple-leaf tree ….
Chatting with our friends from Soho
Speaking So(t)ho
Eating dried mopani worms, definitely not for free
Gather up your things, it’s almost three ... time to go!

Very important! Make notes of where we go,
For now, only one will do
Learn your abc and one two three
At the end, don’t C the 3
“A” for you and “1” for me

Think back to the time in Soho, when we had tea for three
The name of the place we are looking for, is a Sotho word for....
Now find an oxymoron hidden in a cycle of seasons,
Be very careful, choose only two!
From rivers of plenty to beautiful red dunes of sand
Unforgettable! A scene painted by nature’s own hand

You've arrived at your destination :clap:




Wait!! Before you relax ...

There's a twist to this tale, but unfortunately you’ll have to unravel the next riddle if you want to know more about this extra-ordinary event. Different, but very, very entertaining! :wink:

The story I’ve been told happened many, many years ago
35 or so, that much I know!

Once upon a time there were three men
a ranger named Bruce, (who acted very strange)
a hunter named Marvin, and a man called Rodger (both acted the same)
Rodger, the most dangerous of them all,
Had a friend who was caught with a gold nugget in his hand.
Part of the plot, Rodger had to find a gun of pure gold
Both of them, a sight to behold!


Behind the scenes however, a fourth man was at work …
Will, a part-time goldsmith, salt of the earth
carried half of the burden with Bruce at his side
Together they shouted at the apex of evil,
Never flinched, but stood their ground with honour and pride

Don't stay too long, this is not our destination...

(usually 4, but not in this case)

The rest we'll worry about later! First we have to find our destination :wink:
