Comedy Wildlife Awards: It’s Smile Time

Here’s a great photo from 2019. Entitled “He’s right behind me, isn’t he?” it was taken by Anthony N Petrovitch.

Swim faster!

And I love this photo from Vlado Pirsa called “Family Disagreement.”

Stop ignoring me!

We can all imagine that conversation.

And this head scratcher from Co Grift.

Darling, you’re looking a bit orange today. Was it something I said?

Although these photos are humorous, they are also meant to bring attention to wildlife and their habitat destruction.

Happy mid-week. 🙂

Frigid February

We are deep inside a real big frosty.

With temperatures of -42C and wind chills of -52C, it has been interesting. And I understand that a lot of North America has been whacked by a polar vortex, so apparently there’s lots of cold to go around. Polar vortex – doesn’t that sound vicious? But here, cold in February? That’s normal.

I’m used to dressing warmly – a heavy, long parka – and walking to work, but the windy conditions the last couple of mornings – with gusts up 70K – have been, well, glacial.

My eyelashes have been frosting up within seconds.

I dare not expose my cheeks, chin or nose. They might freeze and break off.

Taking a deep, unprotected breath might sear my lungs. That actually happens, by the way. If I breathe in too much cold air without some sort of scarf buffer, I will start to cough.

Going bare-handed, even for a few seconds, produces instant skin cracks. Ouch!

But, there are good things. My coffee thermos keeps my homemade mocha really hot, even though the outside of it gets really cold during my walk.

My parka is stellar.

The winter sky is a crystalline arch.

And, this weather makes me totally appreciate spring, summer and autumn. 🌸

What’s the best and worst of your winter?
