I had so much fun (and laughed so much) at this meet that I clean forgot to take :cam: .......now I am waiting for all the incriminating pics to come through.
Thanks to all the wonderful people that made this possible - next one is gonna have to be soon......and couple of mites committed to phoning me on a Friday if the Kruger longing gets too much :whistle: :roll: :roll:

Mellory, not only "thieves" were made yesterday! "Liars" too! I bet Heksie wrote this without a blink!

How right you are Hilda Heksie had me totally confused first said she was not coming then when she arrived I asked her thought you were not coming answer was but I am not :big_eyes: stoute' then her post thereafter really had me thinking I had the wrong person not very nice now Heksie :rtm: made me think I had lost all my marbles instead of only a few. Great meeting you all.

Such a wonderful meet yesterday … thanks to everyone who made it.

Thank you Sharifa for the delicious samoosas; thank you Mellory for the amazing secret salad; thank you Heksie for the yummy Amarula cup cakes (wish you could have been there to enjoy them!!!???!!!) ; thank you Shi for all the goodies you brought along. A VERY SPECIAL THANKS to Barry and Hilda who arranged EVERYTHING at Rietvlei and paid for the salads, bread rolls, pap & sauce, etc. I do hope that everyone contributed generously and that there was enough money in the Amarula tin at the end of the day to cover the cost.

It was really great to meet up with everyone – old and new faces; as for “meeting” Martie via Skype video-call, thanks for organising that Click Click!

The afternoon went by far too quickly!

I didn’t take nearly enough photos as I was too busy chatting and looking for stuff that kept disappearing (!!!!!) but here are the few shots from my camera …
