My computer at work is not letting me see the photos ... :wall: :wall: :wall: so I'm going to have to sit outside in the cold when I get home this evening to check all the ones that have been posted since I was on line yesterday afternoon. :roll: :roll:

It really was a brilliant meet and I can't stop smiling when I think about the afternoon and all the wonderful people. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks to everyone who played a part in it. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Hi,
I think it is time that I say Hallo and thank you all for a wonderfull day :gflower: :gflower:

Wendy - thanks for the idea and initiative for arranging a meeting.
Cheetah - you were a very helpful secretary by keeping our list updated.
Barry and Hilda - thanks for the organizing, etc.
Shi, Sharifa and Duke, Mellory, and of course Heksie ( :D ) - for all the yummy stuff.
Waterbuck - for the yellow ribbons.
Click click - it was wonderful to talk to Martie and to see her smile again :gflower: Thanks for bringing Tannie Dot :dance:

And then to everybody that was present - I am looking forward to the next meeting already. I really ENJOYED to meet old friends again and to meet new friends as well :k

Since we did not go on a night drive or visit the Lions, Mads and I decided to post a few photos taken at Rietvlei. We also thought that it could be a good idea if Rietvlei can be declared a SANPark :hmz: :dance:

The Marsh Owl is for Sharifa, but everybody else can also share this cute bird

Just a final something to share with the mites that attended the meet. Hilda received an E-mail from Melanie who runs the Coffee Shop yesterday, stating that we were the best group ever that they catered for and that we are welcome to use their facilities any time in future :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: .
