Over the past few months I've posted about the special times I spent with Yvonne while in South Africa. You can read about these here and here. Please do click on these links to read about what a very special friend Yvonne is.
This wonderful lady doesn't spend her days rocking in a chair on her porch, complaining about the state of the country or today's youth. No, Yvonne is a highly intelligent and very interesting person, who apart from managing her home, garden and business affairs, bakes a mean (read delicious!) chocolate cookie. She is also involved in the community and social network which is so unique to a small town.

Today she is also is skilled in computer communications. Yvonne Skypes and e-mails her family and friends all over the world, and is in regular contact with her only daughter, Sheryl in Melbourne, Australia. I'm always thrilled to receive a mail or Skype call from Yvonne. She, along with another dear friend, "Ida from South Africa", keeps me in touch with our home town, Marquard. Yvonne stays up-to-date with my life here in Khartoum by following my blog. (Thank you, Yvonne)
As I said, a skilled computer lady!
At the beginning of the year, I had an article published in the provincial newspaper about Yvonne learning to use the computer at her age. Ida, once again, helped by taking the photos in my absence.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY YVONNE
