MenoSundays; Life Lived Lovingly

Love of the capital 'ell' kind can show up in all sorts of ways and places. As you saw on Friday, the YAMster has become an instythinger, and it has thrown up some interesting angles to thrill the heart a little.

One was a random post (you know how the instything does that) but being a bird watcher it absolutely captured my attention. I cannot refind that lovely image which got me looking for further information on the Greater Adjutant, but that link proves that it is a popular subject for the camera! Not a particularly handsome bird, but that doesn't mean it ought to be ignored.

This is where Greater Love comes in! This article tells of Love for a part of the environment which is endangered but also of the empowerment of women. If the bird doesn't interest you, the story of this 'army' may.

On another tack; the instything also offers 'suggestions' of others one might be interested in following. For the most part, I have been ignoring that, but there have been a few names pop up that were known to me. Most notable of these?

PUDDLES!!! Yes, old-time Blogvillagers, Puddles is continuing to enjoy beer and Cheetos on the click and post app. Those of you who knew her from blogging and are on the insta may be interested. Oh, Allison, the doxie mum, has also now got an Etsy shop with hand made jewellery. Love it!!!

'Sall I've got for you today...


  1. OMPuddles...on instathingie that is thrilling to hear. I know she has won as many hearts and fans there as in blogville.
    As soon as I leave here I will click your links.
    Thank you for you kind words on my header. I have been missing my sidekick and thinking lots about all the wonderful peeps and things that are in my life all because of her. Just wanted to have her more visible.
    The wooden carving of NC caught my eye. If it had been for sale I would have made it mine.
    Hugs HiC

  2. The name Greater Adjutant has me curious right away!
    Cheers, Gail.

  5. Yes, PUDDLES! I miss her too. I wish that she'd blog again.
