The ubiquitous Cape Sparrow (male) in my winter garden
But no less striking or...
...for being ever-present!
Grant and grandson Joel
Returning from a ride out of town on granny's motorbike
Joel told his mum afterwards that they "went fast", he thinks it was 100! I asked Grant if my Honda 125cc could reach that speed and he said, at a push! Another critter that loves a bike, is Eddy (looking on)
Over the past weeks, every night we've had a fire in the entertainment area's Jetmaster. After many years of being without a jafel iron, I bought one. The first I found in the city; it was round. Last week I found another in Senekal while we waited for Rina at the dentist. This time a square one.
Above is the square one. You place a slice of bread, buttered side down inside the iron. Fill with cooked meat or cheese and tomato; add another slide of bread on top of this, buttered side up. Clamp the top part down and place in the coals
Above is the round jafel iron which creates a pie-type of toasted sandwich. Grant, who's been named the Jafel King, knows exactly when the sandwich is toasted

Joel enjoyed his jafel so much, Granddad had to make him another!
Last week was full moon and I managed to get quite a few shots of it
And no critter post would be complete without a video of the cutest critter in our household. Skabenga has his own toy box. He has chewed the box to pieces (I've had to replace it!) But he's just like a small child. He removes toys, scratches underneath a toy to see underneath, gets angry when he cannot get the toy out; places his toys back in the box - on and on. Too precious!
I'm linking my post to Saturday Critters with Eileen, here
Happy Saturday to you all!
