Thanks Sid and Chris and Charles for a lekker weekend and lots and lots of dirt road beer and dro wors. Sid I think the animals did not like me this weekend. After the sheep story and on my way home way home a horse ran in front of me before Heilbron and then again a wild buck after Heilbron but at leat I made it home in one pierce.

I was just behind Schalk with the horse incident.  :biggrin: :thumleft:

Thanks to SYD & Span!...... Was soos voorig n Moerse Lekka Kuierasie gewees.
terug by die huis met n korrekte hangover 8) :laughing4:

As Jimbo mentioned, Cyclops and I only just got home before the rains came down in our area..... but only after a quick beer at Battlefields Pub & Grill near Estcourt. :pot:

The ol' Transalp's speedo cable snapped somewhere along the way, so I had no idea how fast I was going, or how far... time to do some maintainence I reckon!
@ Welsh, I reckon your and my livers were made in the same factory!..... My liver has rejected any attempts at reconciliation!  :patch: :peepwall: :ricky: :lol8:

Baie baie dankie mense!..... :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Tommy, before I took Friday off, I had a few bids to do (no they are not one pagers), so first one goes in Thursday in Lephalale (we have to hand deliver), first thing today the new boss says can we push that bid, I am not in Wednesday and I am going up there on Thursday so I can drop it off.

So a proper days work and you can imagine how strong I was feeling.  :o

Thank you to everyone attending and for making it so much fun and giving generously towards a good cause.
