Happy Christmas David,

Here it is David, I don't supose you know who the girl is on the right, do you? I snapped this ages ago for our man in Natal, I had to say sorry to Brett as I really could not ask this classically trained girl to move, or "shift" as we say up here! :)
I told him I'd take another some time, as I walk past every week.
When I went back, she had gone! :(
I thought I might ask her over to sing to my dinner guests at a party I was hosting later the same month!
But she was nowhere to be seen. :(

Micky,

How are your plans for SA progressing?

How much information do you already have on Major Denne?
