Thanks anne-marie :thumbs_up: - have left my "happy snappy" camera out so hope I can remember to take some photos for you - will definately try my best :thumbs_up:

Hugh - we have a very good snatch strap :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: and a Landy :whistle: - and I think the wee doggie is going to be VERY happy to see everyone and the kitties will probably be fighting you to get the seats closest to the fire :D

It's still raining here and its REALLY cold - so glad we didn't decide to go ahead with the braai idea - we would have frozen :( Will light the fires early and warm the house up ...

See you all later and drive safe .....

The camera will be packed .. but no doubt we will forget .. we always have too much fun to think of photos Lets see if we can change that this time and make all the other mites :mrgreen: and show Scips and co how Old fogies enjoy themsleves (the zimmer waltz, the zimmer boogie, The zimmer tango ) Who can spit their dentures the furtherest, who takes the most pillies and who puffs and pants the hardest when climbing the steps into Scouters house!!!

Changed my mind! Just remembered that the pool is the wee doggie's territory! :roll:

:lol: :lol: - even the wee doggie doesn't like swimming in this weather :evil: The pool is heated - but only with a solar panel or 3 and seeing as we haven't seen the sun for days I think its going to be pretty cool ... but you could always try the river if you want a refreshing dip :tongue: Actually, I think I might still have a wetsuit from my youth in my spareroom somewhere if anyone is brave enough :D

Hugh - we are coming thru to you ok :wink: Its not too bad here at the moment - can see some blue sky - but give it 10 mins and it will probably be raining again - am hoping it will have cleared eventually but this afternoon ....

:gflower: :clap: Ditto to all wanderw says :clap: :gflower:

SO nice to meet so many more forumites and to see Caracal again. The warmth of the company more than made up for the chilly weather! Scouter and SO are fabulous hosts and the feast was delish!! Thanks so much to you all.
