Greeting from Maroela!!
Having a right laugh at Wendy's reaction everytime an insect flies near her :lol: Heksie has gotten used to this already, but I just can't stop laughing :lol:

Had a great meet with the Mites at Satara! Porridge could be on comedy central!

Had many discussions today with people about the project and about the forums. We are likely to have an increase in numbers :cool:

We on the look out for Spargish's Maroela Honey Badgers! No sign of them as yet ... But the spotlight and camera are at the ready!!!

My pledge is that I will make a bet, that Scipio and Bush Baptist will NOT have a couple of beers during their visit to Kruger for "Mites go to Kruger to raise funds for our rhinos".

If I am wrong and they do "have a few", ( :roll: ) then I must pay R1500. :)


Scipio won't be joining us... What now? :hmz: Eish...

Hey Brownies, wish I was there!

You guys are great and good job telling everybody about the Rhino projects and the forum!

I'm sure I saw the Nossob Brownie cousin on the webcam in the past week, so that was all I needed for my pledge!

I read on Crested Val's post the mites are looking for those woodpeckers, keep adding them up, my piggy bank is waiting for those numbers!

Love you guys and go for it for our Rhinos!

ENJOY!

Good Afternoon Mites ... greetings from Maroela Camp.

Remember the challenge Heksie set you on Monday evening .....

Heksie wrote:Ok mites :redface: here is a challenge for you guys :thumbs_up:
I have done something... Just now
I will give R100 to the cause if you guys guessed it right what I just done :D


Well, no-one guessed correctly ...

I guess she has spent too long with me now ... I am usually the one locking my keys in my car but the Witch Lady is taking a page out of my book ...

Here are the keys LOCKED in the car ...

Image

I knew we'd get them out some how ... I've locked keys in my tent AND in my car in the Kruger before!!!

After a bit of a panic, Heksie chilled out and we just sat and enjoyed the evening.

The following morning we got up and went for a nice drive together in my car. When we got back to camp. Heksie went into reception who were very helpful and sent someone along ...

He checked out the problem ...

Image

Image

Image

He went off and got some wire and a screwdriver ...

Image

Image

... and within no time the car was open, Heksie got the keys to her broomstick back, and we were off to meet the other mites to celebrate the Forum's birthday!

Do not worry, I will donate the money anyway, at the end of February as required. I expect Scipio will have a few cold ones even if he is not in Kruger. :roll:

Are there any of the Brownie T-shirts left? If so, how much do they cost.
