Animal of the Day – Camels

Animal of the Day – Camels

#AOTD – SEPTEMBER 24, 2019

***

Here’s a new challenge all about animals! It’s brought to you by Betty Louise at the above link. Here’s what she says:

We have FOTD, WWE, BOTD,  we seem to have forgotten our friends, animals. So I decided to start one. You can use any animal domestic or wild.

My animal of the day is the camel.

Both photos here have a camel or two. We only see them if there is a traveling wildlife show. They are huge!

“Tracks,” by Robyn Davidson, is the author’s memoir of her journey across Australia, with her four camels, and her dog. Traveling 1,700 miles during the six months of her journey, she deals with harsh weather, unpredictable wildlife, and her quirky camels. More than just a travelogue, she learns that she is capable of overcoming all the obstacles piled against her. She writes with humor and passion for what is important in her life story.

I’ve read this one several times, and was so glad I found a copy of the book to buy, because it is unforgettable.

This photo is of a tiny, red plastic camel. Looks like it was just a trinket, or something to add to a necklace maybe, as it has a circular part on the top. I found it in a box of old keepsakes of my Granny’s.

A to Z Blog Challenge – Letter T

A to Z Blog Challenge – Letter T

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“This Day (Diaries from American Women)”, compiled by Joni B. Cole, Rebecca Joffrey, and B. K. Rakhra, is the culmination of a project. A project to record in writing, the voices of typical American women, relating what their normal day was like on one particular day. They chose a random day, October 15th (year not stated, but the book was published in 2003). The authors wrote to, called, and emailed as many people as they could about their idea, and it snowballed from there. They got over 529 responses that were finally published in the book. The women participating were from all walks of life, and their short day diary entries told of their day from the mundane, to the humorous, to the serious.

Maybe you’ve wondered what other people are doing on a certain day, as you are going about your own business. This book is a look into what these other women were doing, and is so interesting.
