It’s Official – I am to design and build a 9 hole golf course.

The emails have flowed between the owner and myself, I’ve visited the site a few times and now the contract has been awarded me. So for the next six months I will be “on and off” the blogging scene.

Unfortunately the internet is not of the best where we are going, but when I can I’ll look in at your blogs, doubtful if I will get a chance to blog myself, but that’s life.

This has been a life long dream, to design and build a golf course from scratch, has long been on my “bucket list”, in fact for more years than I can remember.

Here’s a few photos from our recent trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park…… I have 100’s to share and now I don’t have the time…..

“I will be back” as Arni said…. just give me the time to build a Golf Course…

Trying to find the time…

After a record month in the Laundry, hell only two and a bit tons of laundry done… I find a quick look at the blog, astounds me to see I’m about to post my 800th post…

So here is the 800th… compared to some of you I’m probably still a baby trying to find my feet…

Running here and there does not allow me much family time with all of you, but I do know you understand… here’s to the family…

Sniffer Dogs How far Can you go?…

I wrote an article a while ago, a humoristic take on Cancer sniffing dogs… here’s a link to the article if your interested… but re-reading it the other day I enjoyed the photo I had attached to it. A quick search through my folders and I found these photos I’ve taken of dogs, not all good candidates for sniffer dogs… specially the African Wild Dog, (the last photo). Would hate to have him smell my derriere.

Choc-nut Sundae–or is it–A Chocolate filled Sunday ????

Today seems to be a day for chocolate… cold weather an indoor day… plenty of what goes down best and for the Grand kids? The last photo, but we did sneak them a bit when their Mother wasn’t watching…

A cuppa with my cigarette… followed by chocolate cake… and then the chocolates…

My Dogs.. I love them everyone.

I own a pack of dogs, and always have, they have always treated me better than anyone else, and love me unconditionally..

The youngest one “Bartjie” is his name, is my wife’s dog, and was at her side (even on the bed) whilst she went through her last cancer episode. He knew when she was not at her best and would follow her everywhere. The first to greet her on returning from a chemo session, a lick behind the ear his form of greeting. then on the bed with her, and there he’d stay unless she arose for something.

The other three, belong to me, and cats have no chance with them, if they can they will follow them up a tree as you can see below..
