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

As I write this, it’s 11 O’CLOCK, or “of the clock” in the morning, Eastern Daylight Time. That happens to be the time ABC Wednesday usually starts each Tuesday for ME. But what time is it for YOU?
It’s 4 O’CLOCK on Tuesday afternoon in London, the time zone where ABC Wednesday’s creator, Mrs. Nesbitt is from. And it’s 5 O’CLOCK Tuesday afternoon where Melody resides.
It’s 6 O’CLOCK on Tuesday evening in Beirut, Lebanon and Tel Aviv, Israel; 8:30 O’CLOCK Tuesday night in Mumbai, India; and 11 O’CLOCK Tuesday night in Manila, the Philippines. But it’s 2 O’CLOCK very early Wednesday morning in Sydney, Australia, and 4 O’CLOCK early Wednesday morning in Auckland, New Zealand.
All calculations courtesy, thank goodness, of Time and Date.
But these will soon change because of Daylight Saving Time. It ends in most of Europe on October 28 but not in most of the United States and Canada until November 4. And in the Southern Hemisphere, DST has either already just started (Australia, New Zealand) or is about to (Brazil).
It’s interesting that, even in a world of digital clocks, that there are still references to clock faces in terms of direction, such as, “That plane is coming in from 9 O’CLOCK.”
No matter what O’CLOCK you come to visit, or what time zone, we ask you to clock into our ABC Wednesday widget and leave your links.
Welcome once again to ABC Wednesday, where each week we focus on a new letter and share our choices for that letter.
This week N is the star. My choice – N is for Nail.
Nails can be several things:
Finger- and toenails. They can be shaped, coloured and cut. They can also reveal signs of illness.
After having my nails shellacked for my daughter’s wedding, I had the shellack removed – which left my lovely nails brittle and easily broken. Now I am trying to grow them back again. (It was most definitely worth it tho, as it was a wonderful day, a wonderful wedding)
Nails can also be what builders use to build and create with.
My son just finished rebuilding our back porch, including the stairs and without nails it would have been a most challenging task.
To nail someone means to catch them in the act of usually doing something wrong.
To nail it means to get something right.
There are many notable “nail“idioms we use:
hard as nails
hit the nail on the head
fight tooth and nail
final nail in the coffin
a bed of nails
Here’s my art tag with the stamp I carved for nail:
