My parents left yesterday morning at Sparrows Fart for their six week long trip across South Africa and into Botswana. I miss them so much already!!!
This has been a dream of my dad's for so long and when he had his heart attack and stroke last year, six months after my mother's cancer diagnosis he decided ENOUGH - time to realize his dream.
He has been planning this trip for over six months. He has packed and repacked the Jeep and RV fan a million times. He has spent a shit load of money on gadgets and tents and sleeping bags and all sorts of camping things.
I am not sure what he is more excited about though, going on his dream trip or having my mother all to himself for SIX whole weeks!! No kids or grand-kids to take his darling wife away from him.
Bon Voyage dear Fockers - be sensible, dont take chances, hold your head up high, remember your name, pack a sensible cardi, make sure you are wearing decent underwear and don't do anything I wouldn't do. Love you and miss you!!
