Thursday, 18 February 2021
Another week has flown by and for once I had planned what I was going to do. My friend Threads through my Life is always so good on checking that I am ready and this week I was able to tell her I was all organised.
The title for this week is 'Unexpected'.
My picture this week is of a most Unexpected surprise ....... a beautiful cyclamen, a present from Katie and Himself. They were kindly dropping off a little bit of shopping we were needing and this was inside the bag. It was a most unexpected and most appreciated present. 🧡

The Word chosen for us this week begins with W. As usual I have searched through my Africam archives for my pictures.
My first selection is a couple of photographs taken at Cat Eye pan of a family of Warthogs. They are not the most beautiful members of the pig family but fascinating all the same. Their curved tusks are used to dig up roots and can grow into dangerous weapons. During fights their faces are protected by protruding pads on either side called Warts, hence their name.

The words Kate has chosen this week are 'Lovely Memory'. I have been going through my remaining archived photographs, the ones I did not lose, and cannot find the one I was searching for but a few days ago I was sitting at my computer watching a tremendous tropical African downpour at Njuma Game Lodge, South Africa, watching the Impala buck getting more and more wet, the water rushing down the tracks of the dirt road.
But sitting there watching him reminded me of another time B and I were in the Kruger National Park and had pulled off the road under some trees to have a lunch in the car (you are not allowed to get out of your vehicle at all except at designated safe stops between the camps). As we sat watching some buck and keeping an eye on a very black cloud approaching, the heavens suddenly opened. We hastily shut the car windows to keep out the pouring rain and immediately our windows steamed up. B had a brain wave. We opened one window a little way and put out an umbrella to keep the rain from coming in and carried on with our game viewing and lunch. I must say we got some funny stares from another car that also pulled into the same clearing.
Not quite the correct photograph but thanks for the memory Kate, it gave us a good laugh.
Promise to follow rules next week. Already got picture planned!
Now to see what others have posted. Keep well and safe all of you.
(P.S. We have both had our first jabs.....yay)
