B is for Beaver Pies - Beaver? Not an animal I associate with South Africa, and none of the meat pies were filled with beaver as far as I know!

You were conned, there was Beaver meat-and you would not know .... unless you've had beaver meat before. Where was this? I seem to recognize the place from many moons ago, but the old computer that is my brain is not quite functional at the moment, and besides, the idea of Beaver meat has me all excited. Iv'e had genuine Buffalo Pies to date, Beaver's Pies sounds even more delectable Probably, the owners surnames are Beaver.

Ducks, ducks, ducks......
Should I state the obvious that someone forgot an apostrophe in that sign for meat pies? My Frat house at Berkeley had an oral legend about how they got affordable meat during the Great Depression. They hunted "roof rabbit:" a small furry animal that jumped from roof-to-roof and went "meow."

All I can say is that here in Canada where the beaver is our national animal, no one talks about putting them on the menu!

Uhm, yes. Here is SA, anything can be on the menu! Horse/donkey meat is a regular, and then there s Mopani worms. Springbok (our national animal) is very tasty alongside Kudu, buffalo, Ostrich (which apparently is very healthy what with low cholesterol) and Giraffe and Rhine were touted on one occasion as suitable for a barbecue. Canadians are not adventurous eaters perhaps

We do eat elk, buffalo (bison) and deer. And I did have an ostrich burger in East London - it was called a "sexy chick".

To move along how about I is for Iridescent - that is one way to describe this vibrant plant

JP for "J." License plates can be useful for sometimes difficult letters, although at a stretch this image might have been posted as "jalopy."
