We never whisper, no need as The Angels are too busy chatting about children, new clothes, and what they should cook for their Muskateers. And checking the fridge to see if there is enough Castle or Windhoek to hand to the Muskateers of course.! :twisted:

I got a PM once form one of the CHIEF Musketeers... asking me if REALLY could not read the musketeer code.... There is NO smiley in the world to show how I ROFL when I read that PM.......He was SO fooled by Angel tactics that day.


You know you lot...... All the musketeers know the true story behind this.

Here a galant musketeer shows concern for some batty angel, and see the thanks he gets........ :roll:

But then, we cant expect less than this now can we gentlemen? :twisted:

ROTFLMAO!!!!

This thread brings back so many great memories - I miss those times, although the forum has done brilliantly. DB, thanks so much for pointing this out to me. I really wish I had more time to browse all the forums thoroughly, but would have missed this if you hadn't.

Ah, the good old days. As for the skilpadjies... grrr! At least the mouskateers have had to bow to admit us angels were right about LITS!!! :twisted: :lol:

What was the story behind the LITs again? The musketeers just refused to believe leopard's climbed trees.... do I have the correct story?

FYI there are no springboks in the Kruger Park.



:lol: :lol: CR - your post re the Springboks in KNP reminds me of a special forum member from early days who thought there were springboks in KNP and was teased mercilessly about this for a long time after! Perhaps a good quiz question.... who was it ;)


Hey, I really thought there were Springboks in KNP! :redface: Quickly found out though!

How did 'Angels' and 'Musketeers' originate on this forum?


:lol: Me and Meg! Acekam, WTM and Bwana were making life difficult for us and I called them the Three Musketeers. Meg came up with Angels for the Ladies! 8)

I do believe the forums have grown WAY past any expectations SANParks had! Shows what a passion people from all over the globe have for SANParks!

Two very pretty girls were handing out samples in a supermarket. I forgot what exactly. I'm sure WTM will remember, as this day must be permanently etched in his memory. The Wildtuinman strolled by and froze when he heard them say: "Would you like to try some, Oom"?

:lol: :lol:

Will I ever forget that? Till this day I break out in a sweat when I walk past the deodorant rack. :?
