Congrats on your position!

I don't normally drink Hansa, but I could make an exception! ;)
There is nothing you can do about the past and you can't predict the future...all you have is the now...live it to the fullest.

Nice photies  ;D

A few years ago I lost a canoe at Cradock weir - 3 pieces  >:(  I remember the first time I went down the weir as a Saturday afternoon and as I wanted to climb out of the water, there was this "visser tannie sonder tande en 'n bottel wyn" with a dog much bigger than a normal lion.  Quikly I had to decide - weir or eaten alive   :laughing4:

Saltpans Rapid also took me once or twice by surprise  :biggrin: Thought I'll die that day and I was very much surprised to see that there was water left in the river - thought it went all into my stomach  ;D  Baie water gesluk daai dag  . . . . .

I also took my kids down the Marlow shoot and every time I'll worry what if something goes wrong (we used to paddle from Marlow Cause Way to town) and then they'll shout:  "Do it again dad".  Needless to say - I was as deaf as a kwartel  :mwink:

Ja - good old days.
Life is hard - even harder if you are stupid.
