Four-and-a-half Abby is growing up fast;
she comes over to visit on her own!
Soon she fetched the highlighters and colour pencils
and paper and began to draw
She noticed Ambrose lying in the sun and went over to stroke him
A gentle little girl petting a convalescing kitty
Soon after this Abby asked to go home so I took her out the gate, along the lawn and into her front door. Closer to your grandchildren you cannot get!
I leashed up Skabenga and with Eddy we walked around the corner to the golf course.
Just before we entered the gate, I came across two little girls having a picnic on the side of the road. This was such a heartwarming sight that I took photos of the beautiful scene.
Our beautiful town is so peaceful and crime-free compared to life in the cities
The dog from over the road soon joined them. This isn't their dog as I think these little girls live in the house on the corner.
The dog soon joined the girls' picnic
As always the dogs love their daily walk on the course
Several golfers were out on the fairway
On my way back, I saw that an older lady had joined the girls - their aunt perhaps? The dog was there to stay. Eddy also ran up and joined in the fun but Skabenga was too excited for me to take him any closer
On Sunday night we had quite a bit of drama - although remotely. Our friend, Rudi, from Wilderness (900km), was on his way up to visit us. Grant is rebuilding a 1989 motorbike for Rudi so he was keen to see the project in real life (I've been posting photos on FB) He was journeying quite well until 6.30 on Sunday night. He phoned Grant to say his car had stopped UP a hill and he just couldn't get it going again. We asked if we could arrange a roadside assistance but he'd already had someone stop and phone a breakdown service in the next town 30kms ahead.
Long story short, Rudi's "help" never arrived. We waited here in the Free State not thinking to organize help for Rudi; he ended up sleeping in the car, under icy conditions, for the whole night. On Monday morning early Grant phoned the roadside assistance who contacted Rudi immediately and within twenty minutes went out to his car, started it and Rudi was ready to ride!
At 2pm yesterday Rudi arrived here at our home!

HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU ALL!
