Smiles all Around



I just couldn't resist this one. 
It sums up the spirit of New Zealand to me.
My friends will attest to the fact that I am a big Richie McCaw fan.
He is Captain of the All Blacks rugby team. I love watching this game....especially when he plays.
Sorry Mr. H :)

I couldn't resist the looks on the faces of these children.
I would have been on the sidelines beaming too!

(Mr. H thinks it is time for me to come home!)

  3. I have to show this to my boys - rugby is our game here and McCaw is definitely a housefold name chez nous.

  12. This is the first time I've ever considered going over to the 'dark side' Jeanne from Aussie Rules. Mr. McCaw is well, to put it delicately, A HUNK!!!
