Table Hill

Guyk and BobG said here that our famous Table Mountain should be "table hill"
What those two learned gentleman don't know, most probably because of the inferior schooling system they were subjected to, is that the mountain looked like this picture in 1652.

When Jan van Riebeeck had to go back to Holland for more wine and other stuff, he told the locals, "don't touch the mountain, leave it alone"
I suppose that makes Voluptuousman's "Space mountain" on the same post, correct. Good going there Ou Toppie.

Happy 44th aniversary Guyk and Sweething


Happy New Year, Keesie!

Hell, Keys, you can call it what you want I reckon. One shithouse philosopher opined that since Denver Colorada in a mile high city..and it ain't on a mountain..that a pile of dirt in Denver could be named a mountain if mountains were based on the height of a hill from sea level..works for me!
