23 R- by Roger

Hi, my name is Roger and I am a blogger. I guess I really must identify myself as such because I have been doing it, EVERY DAY, since May 2, 2005.

I used to blog at http://rogerowengreen.blogspot.com/. In fact, that blog is still there. I’ve bumped up a bunch of links I was following back in 2010-2012; some are dead, but some, impressively, are still functional.

And once you get below the links, the blog from 2005- May 2, 2010 (and some random later posts) is all there.

Then I got my blog with my name on it. Well, it’s https://www.rogerogreen.com, because rogergreen.com was taken.

Oh, the duck. That’s me, as rendered by Raoul Vezina. It was used in a couple comic books. Unfortunately, Raul died from an asthma attack at the age of 35 back in 1983.

When I needed an avatar for social media, it was the only real choice.

As some of you know, I was the person who ran ABC Wednesday for Rounds 11-20, after Mrs. Desise Nesbitt, the originator of this enterprise.

And now, Melody is in charge. I’ve agreed to stay around assisting her, at least through Round 25. In that role, I try to visit each of your posts. It might take a few days, but I make the effort.

This whole thing is SO much better when each you visit folks, optimally sites you hadn’t seen before.

 

 

23-Q by Beverly

Another week and another letter. The letter this week is Q – a letter that can be a challenge.

I chose quill – which most know as the sharp barbed hair on a porcupine or a hedgehog. It is a defense mechanism that is often a painful reminder to dogs especially, who get too close and curious, to a porcupine.

Many years ago, I took a quill basketry course – to create a small  cedar basket, using dyed quills to decorate it with. I chose the trillium for the lid, which is Ontario’s official flower.

It was a definite challenge to create the basket and took a week of work to make it. But using the quills was fun and not as difficult as I thought it would be. I was proud of the result.

Quill can also mean a writing instrument. Originally a feather’s tip was sharpened and dipped in ink. Now, a pen may be inserted in the hollow shaft of the feather. We used one at our wedding.

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

 

For 23-P

First of all the Panther. His name is Mowgli. He originates from my hometown zoo Wildlands Emmen but was moved, together with his wife Rica to another Dutch Zoo, Artis in Amsterdam.  June 28th 2017 they became parents by 2 little cubs. My last fisit to that zoo was on July 18th, just 3 months ago. Those little ones are almost as big as their parents by now. You may watch my other photo’s from that visit HERE

As you might know by now, my most favorite animals are birds. My number 1 bird is the Peacock.
The photo you see here, I made june 6th, not in a Dutch zoo though but in a German one, in Rheine to be specific.
The other photo’s I made that day can be watched HERE

 

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!
