Ver in die ou Kalahari…. far in the old Kalahari….

Jim Reeves sang a song titled “Old Kalahari”, not sure how many of you know of the song or for that matter Jim Reeves. But here are a few lines of the song ‘cause that is where I am and busy, busy, busy….

Ver in die Ou Kalahari daar sing die Boere so (far in the old Kalahari the farmers are singing thus) 
Gee ons die Ou Kalahari die Ou Kalahari bo (Give us the old Kalahari, the old Kalahari is tops)
In misty plains all around me the burning sun and sand
Lovely and peacful surroundings my old Kalahari land

Sonbesies sing in jou bosse die hittige son te versmaai (Sun Beetles sing in the bushes the suns heat to scorn)
Rooi Afrikaner-osse sien jy om elke draai (Red Afrikaner Oxen to be seen around every turn) 
Ver in die Ou Kalahari tot daar in die Molopo (Far in the old Kalahari up there in the Molopo)
Gee ons die Ou Kalahari die Ou Kalahari bo (Give us the old Kalahari, the old Kalahari is tops)

When I am called on safari by him whom I cannot deny
I pray that the old Kalahari will be part of that land in the sky.

Well that is where I am and I have a contract to complete here, so I might not be around for a while, but will pop in when I can… saw this bird this morning and had to capture it for you all…..

  1. The bird was a nice photo opportunity, the birds seem to have vanished in my garden at the moment apart from a few pigeons.

  2. Beautiful capture. Business I am assuming, while praying it’s not a medical issue. I know that song well : ) This bird seems rather huge looking at the photo. Is it? Safe travels Bulldog.

  3. Always glad you take the time to do a posting no matter what – love love love that photo – you have amazing birdlife as well as wildlife – bloody hell!!!! Know Jim Reeves but not that particular song but I like it!
