As promised on Saturday some pics from meet. You had to be there to really appreciate the following pics. So picture this, in this pic is Bunnyhugger showing us his pink tail, Elzet is in the backround with her beer glass of whine(no half measure with her, if she is going to do the whine thing, she goes big, check complaints thread), the one nearly falling out of her chair from Laughing is Dikdikkie.

Image


Picture this for the second pic, this is Dolf arriving with his new cherrie, bokkie, hide sharer, the rest of the peeps in group you can see are all stunned to a) find Dolf here and b) to see who is on his arm. You can see the suprise by Michel's mouth hanging open and BH nearly falling off his bike.

Image

Picture this for 3rd pic, this is the whole group of us together, even the one's that arrived late and one's that left early before the late arrivers arrived. I know it looks like Flutterby is sitting, but she is standing, in fact I think she is standing on a chair. If you look in top left of picture in backround, it is difficult to see it clearly, but that is where we went on the drive and you can see the cheetah moving into position.

Image

So as you can picture, was a great meet and you really had to be there to really appreciate the moments. :thumbs_up: :evil: :lol:

Will have to get the guys to answer that one. They just stuck the ribbons on and said 'no questions' :naughty:
Seeing BH is absent, we will have to look at JN for an answer. :tongue:
Please tell.... then I will also know. :D


Dikdikkie this is a family forum so lets leave it at that :whistle: :whistle: :twisted:

Was great meeting all and enjoying a great day out. Thanks Theuns, Elzet and Mads for all the arrangements :thumbs_up:
