Rifle Licence Renewals

In case you can't see it... the hat says "GRADE A CERTIFIED RIFLE LOONEY"
I believe the change in climatic conditions world wide has to be something to do with the fact that after our initial applications were submitted in March 2008, we finally OFFICIALLY have all of Ken's rifle licence renewals in our sticky mitts!  Four years later, three different submissions, two different offices, and finally someone in the District Firearms Office knows what she is doing! Well done Louis Trichardt DFO! Our faith is restored. ;)

USA Elections

To all of our very dear friends and special family in the USA during the elections... we are thinking of you all!
Champ is almost fully recovered from his bite, and is doing wonderfully well! Here is a picture of him that I took this morning!
 The work at the top of the hill on the Wegkruip side continues... it won't be long and the kraal will be finished!  It sure is a lot of poles to plant! ;)
 Here is a recent picture of little Jean and Wynandt Martin! These two little ones are growing so fast!  We are looking forward to seeing them again some time soon!
 Micaela started with her year end exams today... holding thumbs for her!  This picture was taken this weekend at the Klein Kariba cattle auction.
Sofie, Agnes and Julias Jakobsson visited with us Sunday and Monday! It was so wonderful to see them again, and for the kids to catch up! They had lived here in SA for a year while JohnD was still undergoing chemo.
Its sunny, hot, and beautiful!  I think I would bore you if I put pictures on of every little calf born, but I just have to add this one - as he was born to Micaela's cow Hart.  She has not named him yet, but he was born last week.
Well, big hugs to you all! Lots of love from us "Balls in the bush!"
