Only a pleasure hilda and Carol g and barryels :thumbs_up:

I'm the same - I LOVE to see a photo of people I've read about or talked to on the Forum - and isnt it nice to see if they are male or female :D - we were talking about that this morning and how hard it is to know from some 'mites Forum names ( mine included :redface: :redface: )

Just a reminder for all you Cape Town 'mites .... :D

Timbits and Nighthawk2 will be coming to Cape Town after their trip to KTP and would like to meet some Cape Town 'mites at Kirstenbosch on TUESDAY 17th SEPTEMBER ...

We thought of meeting late morning and having an earlyish lunch there and going for a stroll around Kirstenbosch for anyone who wants to stretch their legs a bit ...

Please let me know if you'd like to come and join us - the more the merrier
