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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Echidnas always bring a special memory for me . . . about twenty years ago we picked up my lateย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚



Today’s prompt…

This little fellow came to visit us soon after we bought our land back in 2006 and we saw him (although it could have been another one – it’s hard to tell ๐Ÿ™‚ ) one more time but although I’m always looking, we haven’t seen him recently.

When my children were young we took my Nan for a country drive one afternoon and spotted an Echidna beside the road. Nan’s excitement (she was in the early stages of Alzheimers) was pure joy to watch and seeing an Echidna always brings back wonderful memories for me ๐Ÿ™‚
