Hi all! :D

What a great meet. Cheetahs, black rhino, blackness, darkness, intoxication, games, more intoxication, more darkness, then Robert taking photos, more darkness….. No wonder uncle Dave is the only one that spotted where the rhino broke through the fence… :roll:

Thanks everyone for making it so special. Like Zettie said, it was like a family reunion. And the new members of this family are as special as the old ones. A big cheer for Theuns for arranging, Mads for delivering, and everyone for attending. :dance: :clap: And to the Prings, you were really our guests of honor and we’re really looking forward to see you again. Hope you have a safe trip back home! :thumbs_up:

@ Sekhmet
Respect for my elders se voet. :rtm: Next time I see you I’m going to pull you over my lap, and my hand and your bottom is going to have a very serious conversation with each other. And I’m not going to give you sweeties or balloons afterwards. I think even your moekie won’t mind, since you started to take up al kinds of bad habits. :naughty: So it’s me and you girlie. I think Oom Paul and Oom Scips might even assist…

@every-one else
You can stop wondering. The cat is literally out the bag, and yes it is true that our dear Petra and Scips is now officially a couple. And a pretty nice couple at that. So good for you two, and if you watched the way they kept each other warm, it looks as if that fire will be burning hot still for a long time to come. What a very nice surprise. :thumbs_up:

@Scips
Don’t worry my brother, I’ve got your back. If she takes out the whip, call me and run like hell. The rest I’ll tell you while we make our getaway… :tongue:

    I see you all had a wonderful time, wish I could be there. At last there are some pictures of all the famous (or infamous :wink: ) forumites. A Goldfields meeting is on the cards for this weekend but it will probably just be myself and Juna, the Labrador, that will attend the meeting :doh: Fortunately I have a good stash of hardekool to braai with. 8)

    all in the detail JN, I used a black light, and held my sunglasses in front of the lens for first shot.

    2nd one I used black light again, but this time kept lens cap over.

    3rd one I had black light again, but this time for a twist I got it developed in a dark room, must say those dark room work a treat don't you think? :lol: :lol:
