I think Tshukudu went into hiding :lol:
Remembered he said pap and sheba and fire to be provided. For own account - let's say we each bring chairs and picnic basket - besides own tjop en dop. Picnic basket for own crockery.

Invite states party to start at 15:30.

GS - I also had a look at the weather forecaste. Funny, those expected thunder showers always start round about 15:30 in this side of the woods :big_eyes:

See you there...
God, please bless our wilderness!

Guys - I am going to be there, not in body (mind you I did have a moment of trying to make a plan .... but the expression on Hawk's face made me rethink it fast), but completely in thought and spirit.

I know you will all have a great time.

This forum rocks!!! :clap:

Some mornings it just doesn't seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.

Congrats all on another wonderful meet, :clap:

Sounds like a good time was had by all! :dance:

Hmmm and some of those gifts look very familiar and of course are very special. :wink:

Spoke to Lorraine this morning and they were on their way back from Hartebeespoort Dam market.
