Rugby 'n stars.. South African style

So the sky was looking a lekker (south african slang for 'really well..') dark blue..


And I decided to haul out my SW 10" and plonk it onto my fairly new leveling slab..


Birds chirping (a red tailed...something...sorry)


Decided to make a combo so I fired up the braai (slang for : bbq) and settled in...



My house in Kloof (KZN).



My braai...





And just when everything was perfect...

The clouds rolled in...


Well...at least I can enjoy the view..


Cheers !!!!!!!!!!!

Better hope then England maybe but  - All blacks have a big lead All Blacks have won 33 tests to the 12 of the Springboks since pro era started. Think I will go with All Blacks although they maybe trying out somethings for the World Cup next year. For a small populated country they are awesome - 5 million,S.A 52m,Eng 55m

More rugby than stars in the end, at least you had a plan "B" for the unpredictable clouds.
That word lekker made me smile.

I have a Durbanite working with me and she uses that word often.
I know when she is upset with me as she starts talking in Afrikaans and I just smile with a puzzled look.
