    Not quite so poetic, but . this morning I saw some bugs. Those tiny little bugs that fly in flocks of about 1000 and tend to hang about mown grass. Anyway, saw them and thought: you beauty, Spring's here.

    (We had snow last week.)

    Yep, and on comes the short, short days here up North.

    Nothing quite as depressing as going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. Enjoy the summer lads!

    Yep Sardyn. Great to see and feel the sunny side again. We always have interschools the first weekend in August and always have some rain in that week but its always the last winter days and the turn weather to spring. Myself a very much outdoor person and cant wait for the kids winter sport to end to get out in the garden on saturday mornings. Love getting dirty with some physical work out there, jump with mud feet in the pool around noon and have a cold one.

    Yup, theres some rain expected saturday , but am going with some mates to throw a line at ganzekraal.Thank the stars the missus has grocery shopping to do as its nearing the end of her prgnancy now and she wants some attention. I managed to squeeze in a boys weekend to langebaan for fishging from a boat next weekend and i am definately using up all my shares.But its brilliant to feel the sun actually giving off a little heat. ???

    Well, I'm going to swim against the tide and say I'm sad to see the end of winter, this winter particularly. I'm a country boy and I'm at my happiest when wearing my woollen jumpers while trudging along a touch line watching a game of rugby. My wife and I both enjoy winter up here in the beautiful Blue Mountains. This week my son's got two games of schoolboy rugby left as he's in year 12 and will be leaving school in two months' time, for him the last of 12 years of junior rugby. So that's added to the sadness of looking forward to the end of this rugby season.

    But I'll forget all about rugby while lying on the beach on a sunny day listening to the Australian cricket team murder some poor lambs brought to slaughter.

    Lind sound pretty exciting broer. My last sporting wish for the year is hoping that poor lambs will slaughter the opposition for a change. I wont bet my house on it but sure do hope.

    Sardy are you going to the Kotze's ?

    Today miserable weather in Paarl. Hoping saturday will be fine because the kid have his normal 2 rugby & 1 hockey game as per usual and Paarl Gim big boys will play Outeniqua.

    That was a plan , but now with the missus looking large in the stomach region she cannot get into a boat , never mind a rubber duck.so will probably try get some mates to head out that way later this year or early next.I already have three weekends booked for next year , jan , feb , march...so i am treading on very , very thin ice.... :eek:

    Bless the Mountain, when I needed cloudless conditions, it rocked up and delivered. And it didn't even rain on me in Namibia this time, which, when one considers that I got rained on on the Elim Dune last time, is pretty good going for one with my rain god status.

    Apparently it's chucking down non-stop at home, too; floods in Dublin. >:D

    Sardyntjie you can do the right thing now, take her on a sunday cruise to Ceres and go built some snowmen. Just take your sweet wine, you usually drink when catching fish when its high tide with for the cold.

    Look I am a early chappie. Wake up at 4 and go to sleep at 9. Just watch the newspapers but I think the Ceres mountains is covered with snow. Best direction to drive till near the end of Ceres main road and take the Citrusdal road left. Think its about a 10-20 km drive from there to the snowy mountains. Just go early before the Slaapstadters tremple the place.
