Rest well Snowball

This week we lost a friend who passed away after a big accident, its only been a few days but we miss him already, our friend was not very talkative, but did like to be involved in much that we did, he would be waiting at the house when we would get back from the shops or the beach, was always bumming food from us and could sleep for hours. He wasn’t very old either, only 42 in human years. Snowball our cat and friend was put to sleep on Monday after having his jaw broken in a fight with another cat in the street. We miss him and hope that he is in kitty heaven with a full bowl of food, a sunny place to rest his bones and fond memories of all the love that he received from the Dunkley family.

I don’t know about you but I am having serious withdrawal symptoms now that a week has nearly passed and the SWC is no longer with us, I was happy that the Tri Nations had started but with the current forms of the Boks I am not so sure anymore, with two games played and the all Blacks putting in 8 tries against us, but don’t worry folks because according to Helium, its not a train smash. I personally believe that John Smit should no longer be in the team, he has done his time, served the tem and his country with honour, but he is no longer the man that should lead the Bokke. I mean how can he just stand there and listen to the Ref giving Ritchie Mcaw his second final warning and not say anything………sucks to lose against The All Blacks. I see that Helium is also blaming the referees now.

“When I get older I will get stronger they’ll call me freedom just like a waving flag….so wave your flag so wave your flag”. Fridays is now FLY THE FLAG FRIDAY so remember to show your pride in the country by flying the flag.

Seems it has been cold in Clarens as this picture proves, Thanks Mr Schlup. Clarens has been cold but so has PE, was 2.5 degrees on Tuesday morning, the coldest morning temp that anyone can remember in over 30 years.

While it was great to see Nelson Mandela at the final of the SWC on Sunday last week (well done Spain) it was also to me a harsh reminder that he is very old and to see him like that made me feel that perhaps we need to give this great man some peace and quite and not keep pulling him out for the world to see when we need to, he is not a mascot, he is an ICON and I don’t care if you feel he should have been hung in the 60’s, if he had SA would have been a lot worse country to live in. I wish that I could meet him, shake his hand and thank him for being the man that he is. Happy Birthday Madiba, thanks you for all that you have done for South Africa I just hope that we can make the country the one that you wanted to see , we are not there yet, but we are trying.

The Dunkley family are fine, gabby started school again, is still madly in love with Stephen (her boyfriend) I am busy at work , but loving it, Tania is busy with Crafty stuff and overseeing installation of solar geysers etc etc. Had a couple of calls this week from Clarens Friends, Thanks Natalie and Werner, great to hear from you, Tania also saw Hettie from Clarens.

Well that’s about this week, not really in the mood to write to be honest with you, don’t forget to buy a Clarens Chronicles book if you have not done so already.


Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?
Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?
Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavouring, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
