* GP's favourite insult was "gaan vang 'n vlieg"



Actually not! :lol: It was "Gaan vang 'n HAAN!" until DQ decided he didn't have enough space left for anymore chickens in his flat, so it became "vlieg"!

The first lions were definitely Elaine USA. It was just after 9 at the very beginning. I was about to post there were lions online, but she'd already posted it. Now I'm talking November that year. LONG time ago! 8)

Define "official" :twisted:

I still think this is debatable! Check both our edited: (forum) reg dates, and you may want to agree that Herman and I (plus a few other friends) meeting up for Happy New Year's bubblies at midnight on 31 Dec 2004 at Shingwedzi camp (with none other than Mashagadzi munching his way through the riverbed at the same time) may have been a true "first". But then I guess, the concept of "meet" had not materialized at the time for you, slowpokes!

You really wanna know...?
The metadata on the pics say: 29 May 2005. Shall I post them? Nah, better not... I gave my word not to. :P

I have those pics too and know who was there :D but thought GP might enjoy listing the people seeing she was one of those who attended. 8)

And nah - better not post them Jose... think we will have some :evil: forumites if you did :lol: :lol:

Ah - so we are wrong with the 4 lions... I wonder if Elaine USA still has a pic. Did she post a pic GP or just a comment?


I'm not sure we had the "technology" to post so quickly then and if she did keep one.

Another correction, DQ or Jose can correct me, but the Pillow Fight meet wasn't a forum meet as far as I know. It was an Africam meet. DQ was just too curious bout the outhers, so he went along. Freda should remember the "bokdrol" spit at another Africam meet that almost got them in trouble in London! :lol: Tecnically the real first forum meet was Jose and Herman over Christmas one year in KNP? Shingwedzi wasn't it?

Not GP, just another forumite commenting... Don't know about saved images... if there was anything to save, I'm sure it's still out there in cyberspace, somewhere. But no pics, or even a reference in SANP forums during Nov or Dec 2004.

And now I'm signing off. MayBBL. :wink:

GP was one of the first people who welcomed me to the forum.

I was an absolute Internet greenie...
I still am :?

When a message flashed on my "Outlook Express", I felt like the queen.

My kids were so tickled.

And of course you were there - GP.

Oi! You lot are cheating on the Image meets. Only meets after the forum went up can count.
