What an up lift in tourism in the last 3 weeks, God has been good for us.
Very strange fog or smog or what ever you can call it over Oudtshoorn the last couple of day's. The sun looks very animated on the horizon at night and in the mornings.
The meerkats are still at the same burrows where Liefie had the baby's last week.
They are still to small to come out so we will have to be patient to see how many they are.
Good news is that a friend of mine is bringing his cameras soon and we want to shoot a dvd of the meerkats that will then be for sale on the website very soon.
Will chat soon.

God is Great

Had a fantastic week with a lot lot happening in my religious growth.
I told recently that Liefie the dominant female is very pregnant. Well it has happened. During the night she had some baby's because this morning she would not come out of the burrows. And then i noticed suckling marks on Molly's nipples, so the proof is in the pudding. Now it is that 3 to 4 week waiting to see how many survive.

Another day in Meerkatville, The meerkats came out very early, kind of preparing for the cold front that is moving in over the Outeniqua mountains.
Liefie is growing bigger and bigger every day, two to three weeks to go.
Also had some rare visitors to the area two secretary birds graced our fields with their presence.
A strange meerkat showed its face the day before yesterday, but were chased off very quickly, i could not get a good look at it but it did not look very familiar.
That's all the news i have for today.

Looks like tourist season is slowly following summer out of hibernation. Had a big group yesterday and this morning i had two very nice lady's from the States, complete different reaction to the first sighting of a meerkat, usually there is a lot of ooooo's and aaaa's and sometimes people get a bit emotional, but giggle fit's? that was a new one, well i'd say just as rewarding.
We are eventually back at the main burrows and all eleven meerkats seems very happy and content, even with the military training on the one side and the Corhaan battlefield on the other.
Liefie is doing good in the second half of her pregnancy, her body is starting to get a bit heavy for her legs so she is sitting on her bum a lot more than standing.
