What a sweet little girl.
She loves the cats; visited Ambrose on his sunbed/chair, walked the dogs with me, helped set the table for lunch; ate all her lunch and drank her milk and then helped to clear the table. After lunch, she looked through a book of South African birds and also one of the mammals of Southern Africa (more about this later) Eventually at about 3.20pm she asked to go home.

At the gate I was able to get fence shots for this post
Wood as fuel during the winter is at a premium. The local people look for wood daily. These three men had sawn a dead tree and were chopping up the stem into logs and the branches into kindling. Afterwards, the three of them would transport this precious commodity on their heads (although that's a woman's job) in bags or on wheelbarrows. The distance between this spot and their homes is about 3.5kms.
All they had for tools was a hand-bow saw. But with stamina, perseverance and sheer determination, they would have cut this tree up before mid-afternoon yesterday
I'm linking to Good Fences Thursday here
HAPPY THURSDAY TO YOU ALL!
