#turtletuesday is STILL trending on social media! (Tuesday's Truths WK 127)



Last Tuesday, here on Blogger, I announced (in my Tuesday's Truths segment) that  #turtletuesday was trending on social media. Now, a week later, turtles are still the topic of many tweets and they are still the subject of many photos that have been posted on Instagram.

I can certainly see why these creatures continue to fascinate so many people. As I’ve mentioned before, the shells of turtles in Central Park have always intrigued me and I'm thankful that the one seen here (in the photos atop this entry) allowed me to take a picture of the inside of his/her shell.

NYC will have a beach in the coming years. (MONDAY'S MEMO)


During one of the cold snaps that we had in NYC this past winter, I saw some news re a new beach coming to NYC (please refer to the screenshot of the tweet which can be seen in the image atop this entry). As you can see the tweeter is hopeful that when and if this happens, Manhattan will be blessed with visits from American Oystercatchers.

#NoDirtyDishesDay Brings Back Memories!

I am in the middle of a deadline for a project and am very late in today's posting! But here I am with the news that today — according to many holiday related sources — is No Dirty Dishes Day!

When it was brought to my attention that today, May 18th, 2019, is #NoDirtyDishesDay, I immediately thought of Phyllis Krasilovsky's book, The Man Who Didn't Wash His Dishes.

I read this book when I was a child. Moreover, I just discovered that there is a recording of someone reading this story on You Tube and a copy of it is posted below.



In any event, my recollection of the story was that the man who didn't wash his dishes was a very resourceful person in using rainfall to help him accomplish his task; but evidently I missed the point: The story is consequences of procrastination. Just curious, peeps, do any of you recall this book?

"TRAFFIC JAM"


As I’ve mentioned before, the antics and shells of turtles (including ones seen in this traffic jam upon a rock within the lake in Central Park) are the inspiration for my kaleidoscopic photographic print titled Turtle Pond, which can be printed on an array of surfaces. Check it out via Fine Art America!

It's May 15th again...

... and on this date I always think of Horton and the Jungle of Nool (as evidenced in selected blog posts published on May 15 in 2012 and on May 15th in 2017 as well as on May15th in 2018). Bravo! Bravo! Well done, as always, Dr. Seuss!
