Here's Thursday's Tale for October 19th 2017 (Not Quite a Swan Song BUT....)



Many thanks to Jignasha Thakkar for taking the photos atop this posting. Her images feature a swan whom we encountered in Island Park (which is on Long Island in New York), after spending part of an October afternoon on Long Beach on the Saturday (10-7) before last.

It has been a very long time since I've seen a swan which is a fact that I mentioned when I posted an entry (here on Blogger, 12-31-2016), discussing a holiday ornament that I was given in honor of the seventh day of Christmas, when someone's true love gave to them, "seven swans a swimming."

The ornament can be seen in the next picture.


In the aforementioned post, I stated that I only recalled seeing swans in a park that was in a town not too far from where I grew up, and I confessed that I hadn't seen a swan in recent times. In any event, the ornament seen here is from More & More Antiques, a unique shop on NYC's UWS,


that also sells my Fauna-Flora-Insect-Themed Cards,


which can be seen in thumbnail format in the following set of photos.



Each image comes from pictures included in both the digital


as well as the soft-cover version,


of Cam's book, Words In Our Beak Volume One.

ADENMENDUM: The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but a hardcover version of Volume One can be found wherever books are sold.

Moreover, Volume Two of the book series is now available! Both volumes one and two are in hardcover format (as seen below) and can be purchased any place where books are sold.
