My Beautiful Brave Sister!!!!!!

My Beautiful BRAVE Sister....

Last Thursday night...

My sister Zennet and niece Shani, both work in the city of Johannesburg.  And on their way home from work last Thursday night, her car broke down!!! 
Zennet                                            Shani
A new car, but still, (and these things happen right) it broke down!!! But it broke down in the worst possible place!!! On the freeway next to a township!!!
A very,very bad, bad place!!! And true to form, minutes later, they were attacked!!!!
First he smashed the driver's (Shani) window, and it shatters but doesn't break!!! Then he walked around to the passenger side (Zennet) and threw a rock through her window and of course, the window breaks and the glass and rock hits her in the face!!! Immediately he grabs her.....
But he couldn't possibly have foreseen what happened next!!! He must have thought to himself, two helpless woman, an easy, soft target!!! 
Zennet threw the window back out at him and then... SHE attacked!!!! Armed with her pepper spray and the will to survive and protect herself and Shani, she fought and fought and fought!!! He came back at her 3 times but she fought him off each time!!! She pepper sprayed the "living crap" out of him, 'till he crawled away in defeat (and hopefully in a lot of pain!!!!)
Battered, bruised, cut and bleeding, help finally arrived for them!!! But by then he was gone too!!!
She just decided that she could not allow him to get to them and that she was not going to become just another victim or statistic!!!!   So she fought for her life and that of Shani's!!!!

           My Beautiful BRAVE Sister!!!! 

I Love You Endlessly!!!! And I am so very very proud of you!!!!

ps: I have probably written and rewritten this post a dozen times!!! I am so angry but at the same time, I am all too aware of how easily this could have turned into a horrible tragedy for our family!!!  But at least one #*@$*&^ got what he deserved!!!!

            ....  happy families.....
Zennet with her husband Alwyn


Shani with husband Skinny and daughter Kensi

I hope and pray with all of my heart that this will never ever happen again and that perhaps this guy will think twice before attacking innocent woman again!!!! 

All my love

Strange and wonderful things!!!!!

Hi There!!!

I have a few strange but wonderful things to share with you....

A big male lion up in a tree...?? It seems a very "poofy" thing for a big male lion to do but I suppose at least he had a good vantage point!!!

A family of mice enjoying the warm sunlight on a crisp and frosty morning.....
(I really had to be as quiet as a church mouse to get this shot...hehehe!!!!)

I found these bats in our shed....sadly I cannot identify them and the photo isn't good enough for a image search on Google...but even unknown, they're still cute!!!!

This is a grasshopper I have never seen before....

Yesterday I found this little fella taking a shortcut through my house...

and my brother-in-law Alwyn, dislocated his finger ..... ouch!!!!!ouch!!!!!!ouch!!!!!!

During a recent power failure, I managed a close up of this prey mantis on a candle holder... 

This perfect web was glistening with early morning dew drops!!!!

Don't you just love this sign?!!!  Perfect for a  stargazer like me!!!!

And this is my little Miss J!!! She has passed all of her exams and is about to start her last semester in financial accounting!!! The end is near and boy,!! has she worked hard the past 3 years!!! We are so very proud of her!!!!
This week the weather has been rather chilly....
...but these two had no problem finding some warmth in these cosy blankets!!!!!

It was fun visiting with you again and I'll be back soon again!!!

Hope you have a colourful, happy and fun time wherever you are and keep those creative juices flowing!!!!
