Good Morning V's

Hope everyone is well. I had such a sleepless night, that now all I want to do is sleep and the lecturer seems to bore me even more

Glad you could have a laugh Kallis :thumbs_up:

I have also read that book , and really loved it :D there are two books that I can recommend that are similar to those.....called "the game rangers" and "silent heroes of the African bush" both by Jan roderigues. They really provide a humerous look at the lives of game rangers. Another one is also "memeories of a game ranger" by Bruce Bryden. Then always two books that I can read over and over are "mahlangeni" and "all things wild and wonderful" by Kobie Kruger :thumbs_up: That just the tip of the ice berg though :roll:

Evening v's. Hope everyone had a great day today!! It's almost weekend and almost time to write my last exam :pray: :pray: :pray: . I was supposed to double up on the studying today, but the heat was intense :big_eyes: so I resorted to PESETA instead :lol: :lol: :lol: .

Kallis, I've read whatever you do don't run. It was very entertaining :mrgreen: . I'm busy with A Game Ranger Remembers by Bruce Bryden at the moment and so far I'm enjoying it :) .

Good Afternoon V's :yaya:

Hope everyone is having a fab day soo far. After a long time I will say that I had a Good Nights rest and woke up with a smile on my face today because I had a dream that I was in Kruger, and it seemed soo realistic. It felt as if I just came from Kruger.

Cheetah, you should explain the PESETA theory to your office mates.

The only books I have read in my life is the 2 I mentioned and it was a croc that got me to buy it, because of the croc on the cover I picked up a book to actually read for pleasure for the first time in my life. I really enjoyed the book in the flight, and I had to buy the other book so I have no idea who Wilbur Smith is :redface:

Heksie, Thanks, I am starting the book 2nyt since I got a day off 2mrw :dance: :dance: Will CHeck out your TR just now.
