Penguin Awareness Day

Penguin Awareness Day is on Jan 20 and I missed posting in advance for the email notification. So, as I post these (previously posted) photos on the day itself, you’re seeing them in my future and celebrating a day that’s already occurred, for you.

If it be now, ’tis not to come.
If it be not to come, it will be now.
If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all.
Hamlet (starting at Line 220)

I’ll try to do better next year by remembering this: The readiness is all.

      Jim – You guessed aright. And I don’t suppose I’ll be going anywhere else with penguins!

    The way penguins walk reminds me of my mother and her sister. Both had hip operations, back in the days when the results were not as invisible. They had opposite hips done, so when they walked together they wobbled together and apart, together and apart…. Kind of like penguins. We never told them that, of course. Maybe that’s why I have a soft spot for penguins.

      Jim – <> Good choice! My brother and father used to say that pregnant women waddled (leaning back to compensate for the extra weight up front?), but more like ducks. That side to side tilt-walk that penguins do would not delight my physiotherapist. Something about weak hip flexors?
