It wasn't Saturday in the Park, and it wasn't the 4th of July; it was Thursday, the 13th of December, and baby, it was COLD outside!


This past Thursday was bitter cold here in NYC, but I still took a brisk walk in nearby Central Park, where the lake was completely frozen, as evidenced in the photograph atop this entry. I also noticed a lone blue jay who was not letting the bitter day stop him/her from having a picnic in the tree tops while doing some people-ing (this is featured in the next set of pictures).






Additionally a squirrel paid no attention to the frigid temperatures. He/she seemed to also enjoy doing a bit of peopleing from his/her nose-bleed seat high up in the tree tops.

This is evident in the next set of pictures, which were featured in yesterday's posting on TLLG's FB Page.




Those of you who have read any of the versions (hardcover, softcover, digital) of the book titled Words In Our Beak Volume One, might recall that Cam, a feisty female cardinal who is the storyteller, coined the term, peopleing. In her story, she explains that it is the term birds use when they observe people. I dare say that peopleing is also the term that squirrels use when they observe people, however, some of them might be on the fence about admitting this, as you may surmise from the next two pictures, which were also taken this past Thursday.



By the way, since we are already four days into Chanukah and Christmas is just nine days away, while Kwanzaa is ten days away, it's probably a good time for me to remind you that any version of Cam's books make a great holiday gift, no matter which one of them you celebrate.

ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

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 hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.



Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
