You'll be surprised what you sometimes see through the cottage window, BB :whistle:

Hey Brownie Bunch

It looks like we all are going to share in the fun you guys will be having, can't wait!!!

And I see the pledges is coming in nicely, if we can only find were all stiff necks went.......

Heksie, a teacher, :hmz: , now that's good news! The only things the kids will learn about is Rhinos and conservation. What more do they need to know, maybe and hour math and science a week......

Well done Heksie!

If you get photographic proof of a Brown Hyena in Kruger on your trip I will give R400.
And to make it easy, if I get a group photo of everyone with an Amarula Drink in hand, I will give R100.
In search of creatures great and small, Kruger here we come!
