Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night
In my hometown zoo we don’t have Kangaroo’s nor Koala’s, the animals I’ve shown in my entry at 23-K, the previous round but we have animals that most people call Kangaroo, whilst their real name is Walibi.. not that strange, because lots of people don’t know the difference between these two species, they look very similar, the most obvious difference is their size. Walibi’s are lots smaller. Since walibi’s look a lot like a kangaroo, and since we don’t have any other animals in my zoo, and I don’t have photograps of them in other zoo’s, and I don’t want to ‘borrow’ photo’s that are not made by myself… wich name starts with a K … I show you the Walibi, a kind of kangaroo
Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

A new week and the next letter in our 23rd jaunt through the alphabet. K is the star this week.
K is for Kite.
Who hasn’t flown a kite when young – whether store-bought or made by hand. What fun it was to race across a field with your kite trailing behind, with the hopes it would soar above you.
A beautiful poem by Kimmers gives a perfect description of flying kites. Here are the first four lines:
colors floating in the blue
as laughing children pull on string
rising and falling and billowing and swaying
to the rhythms of the wind…
Here is my art tag in response to “kite”
De letter K proves to be found much more difficult but still I’ve managed, at least I think so myself.
This statue is to be found in the foyer of a large theater in my country and if one looks at it one can see not only the K but also an O and some other letters to. Don’t worry, I won’t use this image at one of the next posts in this round, so you won’t have to look at it twice.
Have something to share about the letter K?

K is for Knowledge
I’ve been a librarian for 25 years, come October 19 of this year. The great thing about that is that almost every day, I learn something new, something I might not have thought to look up but nevertheless I find useful.
I have been blogging for 12.5 years, come November 2. Usually I have a pretty good idea what it is I write. But I often have to fact check bits and pieces. When DID that album come out? What year was she born? What I have discovered is if you get one fact wrong, people will dismiss the entire premise of your argument.-
Just this week, some guy at the bus stop had a schedule for a suburban bus that wouldn’t arrive for another three hours. I happened to know that a bus coming in the next 20 minutes would at least get him close to his destination far sooner. On the same day, I helped a young man put his bike on a bus, something I didn’t know first time out either.
I have a teenager, so all SORTS of stuff that I wouldn’t otherwise have even cared about is in my brain.
A surprising bit of trivia I know. Occasionally, it comes in handy.
The point at which you think you know it all should never come.
