September 22nd, 2014 · 21 Comments

Happy Brilliant Birthday to Hood #1

se7en - 200914 - 1867.jpg

The chap who recreates the world of Tolkien every time we go to the beach…


The guy with a wicked sense of humour…


The Lego creator of note…


From blocks he creates entire worlds…


The teacher of all things fascinating to little people…


And the trumpeter of note…


To the one person ready to braai at a moment’s notice…


And our super keen photographer…



To the lad that never stops drawing…


Always ready with an incredible tale or the definition of an incredible word…


To the man who insists on a hat…







Who appears to have grown up so very suddenly…




Wishing you the Very Best Year Ahead…
