Neee :lol: , dit was MELK, of eintlik tee........KWT, maar dit was in n melk bottel....dem, dis konfusing. Maar was nogals njam. Al 4 proppies vol. Dink dis dalk wat my siek gemaak het. Ken nie meer van gif drink nie.....Ek moes maar by my koeldrank gehou het. Vanaand raak ek om die beurt warm en koud, en die koue swete tap my af. Ons het nie eers meer n DR hier nie. Ek hoop ek voel Saterdag beter, want nou kry jy my nie vir baie geld in n errouplyn nie. My kop voel te dronk, en my ore is pot-toe. Sal maar n bed lebbon drink en slaap, dalk voel ek more al beter. :(> :(> :(> (**)

Ou Grote`s aeroplane and keys were handed over to him last Sunday. I ferried the Safari to FASDA. Route, coastwise, of course. How else. She gave me a good ride. The wind was really PUMPING when I left home, so the takeoff was < 10m! Fly safe and enjoy!
