Congratulations to Jody from Jo's Journal (which is private) for being the first correct guesser of "Up Close". It was a picture of a mallard duck! The duck had it's beak and neck nestled back onto it's chest. Can you see it now? Dawn (princessaurora) was also a correct guesser. Atleast they saw the duck! LOL Here is your blue ribbon, Jody...
Rich (sanforized6) was close and guessed a parakeet. Gee, I got alot of funny guesses this time. I got alot of interesting animals =).
I was a day behind in my mind yesterday and thought it was Tuesday and forgot to post "Wordplay". Ooops. So, sorry I am a day late, everyone. I thought I would talk about pets today. I notice that people have interesting names for pets. Sometimes pet owners name their pets one thing and the pet ends up being called another thing later by their behavior. Sometimes their names are shortened and they are called the shortened name. Sometimes the spelling is very interesting. I have heard so much about people's pets in their journals and am often fascinated by pets and their names. Here is today's "Wordplay"...
Do you have a pet(s)? What is his/her name? How did you come up with this name(s)? Has your pet's name been changed through time? How do you spell your pet's name and if it is an interesting spelling how did you come up with it? Tell me a bit about your pet. You can tell me about childhood pets as well. If you can send me a picture of your pet(s) I would LOVE it and will put it in my next entry for everyone to see!!! I PROMISE!! If you want to do this as an entry in your journal please come back and leave the URL to your entry so I can go read it! Otherwise, leave answers in comments. Again, I would love to see your pets!!
I have always had kitty cats for pets. I have two kitty cats right now. My 5 1/2 year-old kitty's name is Honey. Her original name was Joy. Actually, her full name was Joy Faith. When I got Honey, she was just so sweet and docile that she immediately turned from Joy into Honey-Honey. Then I shortened it to Honey. It is said in a certain way. She certainly is a "honey" because she is just the sweetest, most gentle cat I have ever had. I found it was too hard to say Joy anyway.
My second cat is Baby. His original name was JoJo. He was rescued at around three weeks old from a man named Joe. Her Mama had abandoned her. I got her from my neighbor upstairs and she affectionately named him after his rescuer. My neighbor became allergic to him so I took him in. He was so, so tiny so I called him "the baby" all the time. That quickly turned into Baby. Baby is also easy to say. JoJo was not a name I would pick and he was so small that he wasn't used to the name anyway. He is NOT a "baby" anymore! He is 17 pounds now and 15 months old! Names for him could be Moose, Bull, Dog, Killer, Psycho, etc. He is very active and keeps me on my toes! I guess he will always be "the baby", though. Honey does keep Baby in his place at times. She does rule the roost. She lets him know that she was here first!
How about YOUR pets?
