Life in Africa…..

Most of the time I have to gently inform people that even though we live in Africa, we do not have wild animals roaming the streets. Johannesburg is a first world city.

I may however have to take this back….a Brown Hyena has just been found in a well-populated Johannesburg suburb just up the road from where I live!!

This is what a Brown Hyena looks like – they stand over a metre high and weigh about 40 kg.  I have seen them in the Kruger Park, and they are quite scary!

Hello Gorgeous! Brown Hyena

Happily, especially for the Hyena’s sake, she has been darted by the FreeMe Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and safely repatriated to Johannesburg Zoo.

As the local like to say here, Africa is not for sissies!! 🙂

Just Because It’s Friday Photo…..

I have just returned from a wonderful, relaxing vacation.  One of the beautiful places I visited was Venice.  Venice really is like no other place on earth – being there is like stepping back in time and into another world; it’s magical.

So here it is, a cool picture to make you smile…….just because hey, it’s Friday!

This week: Grand Canal, Venice – Italy

Just Because It’s Friday Photo…..

This has been a sad week as I have had to say goodbye to one of my furry friends.  Tigger gave me 16 years of solid companionship and endless hours of amusement with her quirky personality.  She will be sorely missed, but remembered very fondly with a smile.

So here it is, a cool picture of Tigger…….just because hey, she was an awesome cat!

This week:  Tigger

Happy Friday!
