A Prickly Subject


Today’s prompt…

Also on our drive a few days ago, we saw two Echidnas along the same track as the deer 🙂

Echidnas always bring a special memory for me . . . about twenty years ago we picked up my late Nan from the nursing home where she lived to take her for a drive on a sunny afternoon. Nan was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s. Along a bush track we saw an Echidna and stopped our Mitsubishi L300 van. Nan quickly opened the back sliding door and jumped out, calling to Nathaniel, Elijah, Jess and Pip to come and have a look. They were excited, of course, but I will never forget the look on Nan’s face . . . pure joy 🙂
