How sweet of Bianca and Nico MarkusF! :clap: :clap:

Of course small children will not understand things like this, unless it is explained to them properly. What a sad time we are living in! :(

Lower sabie - Housekeeping

Unread postby fee » Fri Jun 28, 2013 12:40 pm

When we left LS on the 16th my dear husband did the checking to make sure nothing was left behind.
Well, needless to say on nearing Phanbeni Gate five hours later, I was almost sure that I didn't see my special gel cooler bag with our Tupperware bottles being packed. I was right!! .....So much for the good checking :evil:
Phabeni gate office staff phoned LS, and the maid who cleaned our unit had found the bag standing in all its glory on the table outside and handed it in.

Two weeks later I found someone who was going to LS (never thinking that it would still be there). Toko phoned me from housekeeping to ensure that I had given permission to this person to collect it on my behalf.
A big bouquet to Toko and the staff. :gflower: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

May I add a heartfelt 'Thank you' to all the guys and gals who are making sure that Stevenson-Hamilton's "Cinderella" still has such a wonderful gown for us all to admire :clap:

These words can not come close to expressing the gratitude and debt we owe to you - the fantastic rangers doing a dangerous job, not just on behalf of your own country but on behalf of the rest of the world. Just to let you know that there are people out there who do appreciate what you do for world conservation.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?
