Good morning.....
Thank you for all your votes and comments and a special thank you to Jocelia for her UA.

A cutie for you today.....The 3 Lionesses and the 5 cubs were all having an afternoon siesta hen we found them at a water hole. This cub decided to wake them all up...
have a nice day, I am off to Durban this morning for a week to visit my Mom as she is turning 85 years old and also to enjoy the 30-35 deg weather they are having.

Have a nice week
