Translation ( The Pangolins go to Kgalagadi)

Who :?: What :?: When :?: I can just hear all the questions.... :roll:

Firstly the "Ietermagogs" consist of

Michele & Doug, C.O’Dee & K.O’Dee. Oulouis and SO ( Engela)

Why the name..well for want of a better one !!!

The six of us have had 2 planning sessions and as the evening progressed so did the laughter and the creativity. We finally decided on the name Ietermagogs (very rare and special but alert creatures :wink: ) because it lends itself to all sorts of derivatives eg.

ou - magog ( ou - old )
grys - magog ( grys - grey)
dronk - magog ( dronk - drunk)
moeg – magog ( moeg - tired)
engel - magog ( engel - angel :angel: )
bok – magog ( bok - buck or bok from the beer Urbock)
bang - magog ( bang - scared)
mal - magog ( mad - magog)
dof - magog (dof - stupid :doh: )
dop - magog (dop - drink)
rook - magag (rook - smoke)
slim - magog ( slim - clever)
woes - magog ( woes - angry/cross :twisted: )
groen -magog ( groen - green /jealous :mrgreen: )
moerse - magog ( moerse - great/super )

As to which one of us will earn which name….time will tell !!!! :lol:

We leave early Wednesday morning , overnight en route and arrive in KTP on Thursday !!!!!

So only two more sleeps and our long awaited trip will be upon us!
Are you packed Oulouis ??? Are you packed C.O'Dee ?????
Maybe if I got off this forum I would be packed :roll: :lol:

Also packed and ready. :clap: Don't think I'll sleep much tonight. We'll have to add vloek-magog (vloek=swear) for Mashona. Sorry you won't be in Grootkolk with us, Mashona, to do neighbourhood patrol for the poepbangvirleeusinmytent-magog ( veryscaredoflionsinmytent-magog). :redface:

@ingrid60 - This trip might make a good TV show, but a pangolin is just an animal whose Afrikaans name sounds so expressive.

Thanks for all the good wishes. Chat again in June. :dance:

:dance: No more sleeps!! Well except the one on route to KTP. Now just to pack the fridge and then we'll soon be off too! Yes I know "Monty" and our 2 magog friends left at 4am, but fortunately for us my "Desert Rose" although small, can travel faster than "Monty"! I'm sure by the time we get home the Desert Rose will also be renamed - probably something like klein-magog (small-magog).

Good bye to all our wonderful forumite friends - thanks for all our good wishes -this is Dof-magog signing out! :wink:

News from Ma Magog earlier this afternoon...

Journey went well, they had rain as far as Piketberg, then clear weather from there. They were in Upington when we spoke, enjoying an Ice Cream :shock: Only another 50kms before they overnight and then head for KK tomorrow am.

Oh dear......as for C O'Dee and K O'Dee......well they have already truely deserved the honour of being the first 'Dof' Magogs :roll: :roll: Could not find their way out of CT this morning...they overshot the N7 turnoff :huh: Not sure how far they got before they realised it!! Don't think they will be allowed to forget that in a hurry :lol: :lol:

If we're lucky we may hear from them tomorrow before they are totally out of comms :dance:
