South Africa cafe coffee latte dogs allowed

First, congratulations to the winner of Wednesday’s Photo Caption Contest…ALL OF YOU!

Okay, I know that’s the Kindergarten Teacher’s Copout, but I had already figured if there were a dozen or less, I would send one to each of you. But I will tell you a few of my favorites, and include a photo of the winning caption at the end of this blog. (In the meantime, those of you who contributed a comment to the caption contest within the deadline, please send me your name and address, either by FB message or by email to marla@marlasinkdruzgal.com )

But first…

A few random photos from my experience around Pretoria, South Africa so far…

View from our room in a guest house in Silver Lakes, overlooking golf course and lake.
This view does NOT feel like Africa, but like southern California. Must be the imported palm trees.

Bob the dog. Okay, his name is not “Bob” but my new rule is that when nobody tells me a name, I get to make one up. This is my occasional cafe buddy at Karoo Cafe.

Who plants a grown-ass tree? Residents of Silver Lakes, apparently. Followed this guy to his destination at a new house being built. Not that I would mind adding a few fully grown-ass trees to our house in the states for added privacy…

Welcome Welkom We Are Open sign Afrikaans ONS is OOP

ONS is OOP!
No looking it up. Can you guess what this sign means?

So what about those captions, eh?

Well Kurt and I looked them over together and decided our favorites were these:

“Baby got back!” (submitted in video form from Leo, over at Doggy’s Style)

“OH YOU DID NOT SERIOUSLY JUST DO THAT!! YOU’VE GOT THE WHOLE DAMN GRASSLANDS, AND YOU GOTTA BLOW THAT RIGHT IN MY FACE!?!”

“No, I don’t think that stripe makes your butt look big”

“Ok, ok, I see the stripe now. It still doesn’t make you a zebra!”and our overall winner:

I had a lot of favorites, but I thought this really hit the spot (pun intended).

Congratulations to Melissa Perry for this perfect caption!

Have a beautiful weekend, friends!

Love, Marla

  1. ONS IS OOP??? MORE LIKE WTF??
    my guess… on(s) like “we” in french?? Maybe “we all” or “all of us”?? only thing I know for OOP is like text short for out of place?
    So my guess is…I have no friggin’ clue! I was also trying to get some meaning from the heart shaped sign, but that just confounded me even more!!
