Catch-up news...PHOTO OVERLOAD and some captions.

GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
MAXMOM here...
(Christmas Time)

Dear friends,
There is so much 'catch-up' news to share, so I thought I'd do so in pictures today...with a few captions...
Above & Below: Me at ETV studios last week - interviewed about MAXDOG on their Sunrise Show

 Caught a crazy plane to join my family afterwards.
One can't help but giggle at the Kulula Planes. 

Resident kitty at our apartment at Marina Beach.

Hawkers and their goods on beachfront.


 Chill-out time, despite the weather.

Bad weather = Good food at the
"Waffle House"
 Tidal pool at Marina Beach.
Back home: 'Scotch' gives Miss R a warm welcome.

Article about MAXDOG in one of the shopping centre's newspaper.
Toby snoozing.
"Glad to have you home...family!"

Weather in Johanneburg much better!
Perfect Christmas weather.

"King Toffee" on the prowl.

The best-dressed Christmas house in the neighbourhood.
Who can resist feeling Christmasy?

Toby watching me carefully - in case I disappear again.

Even the pooches get into the Christmas spirit.

WISHING ALL MY READERS...
 A HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A FESTIVE SEASON FILLED WITH LOVE, FAMILY AND COMPANIONSHIP.

Sending lotsaluv,

Hi Maxmom, great catch-up post. Seems like a whirlwind few days.

Mrs. JP said...

Wow, you have been in a whirl but isn't it good to be home. I laughed at your plane. It's good to have a little humor when we do scary things!
I know Toby et al is glad that you are home too.
That home is lovely. Do you take nightly strolls around your neighborhood?

Curt Rogers said...

What a wonderful trip.

There is much to be grateful this year, Caryl. As the cold weather settles in over Denver and reflect on the past year, one of the things I am most thankful for is that I found your blog and we've become blog buddies. You are a remarkable person. Thank you for sharing your story and being so courageous.

Happy holidays to you!

Curt (and Duncan, of course!)

No chance of a video clip of the TV interview I suppose?

Oh and by the way, that is NOT bad weather. People are wearing shorts and sleeveless tops....

Cheers!

Looks like a pawsome interview! Sure do wish we could see it!

I is happy that the family had a great vaca. Mom would love the chill out weather at the beach any day and the food too!

But the bestest time ever is being HOME with the pups!

Merry Christmas to ALL!

Woos, Tessa
