Happy New Year
To all our aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews in South Africa, Canada, Scotland and the Netherlands, and to all our friends in those places and everywhere else, and to you, the stranger, who just happens to be dropping on to this blog, all of us in Kwa-McCann wish you a very happy, blessed, peaceful and prosperous year for 2009.
Visit to Oom Joop and Tante Ria
On Monday Dec 29 Ingrid and I paid a visit to Oom Joop and Tante Ria. Oom Joop is the brother of Ingrid's dad, Louis, and uncle, Cor, both of whom passed away many years ago. Not able to learn from our mistakes we took the long way to get there - taking the 403 into West Hamilton instead of staying on the QEW - adding about 30 minutes to what should have been a 90 minute drive.
