Guard dog!

A rather weird photo with the patio awning pole causing a white-out in the bottom right corner! 
Skabenga learnt quickly that if he reacted to the command: "shake", he'd get a treat! And boy, does he love a treat! 

Today is our older son, John's birthday. John, Debbie and their six children spent the night here early in November. They n they passed on their way from Kwa-Zulu Natal to Mozambique. 

With Angus, Amanda and their three coming over from next door, we had nine little ones ranging from eleven months (Liam) to twelve years, (Eryn). 

At Gran and Granddad's house, there's no lack of fun because everyone loves a motorbike! 

Below video shows John (birthday man) and three of their children enjoying Gran's bike around the garden.
