This week’s Wordless Wednesday photograph is of a Female House Sparrow nesting in a Saguaro. House Sparrows are usually very flighty and don’t stay still long enough for us to take great pictures of so this was a pleasant surprise.

This week’s Wordless Wednesday features Billy, the Most AMAZING Cat, lounging on a shelf, cleared especially for him so that he could bask in the afternoon sunshine. ?

This photo reminds me of the Just So Story by Rudyard Kipling called The Cat That Walked by Himself. It is a must read for all cat lovers; a reminder that you are just one in a long line of humans to be outwitted by the feline species.

If you haven’t read it, you can read it and/or listen to it at the University of South Florida’s Lit 2 Go website. I originally encountered the Kipling classic while perusing Cat Stories (Everyman’s Pocket Classics) at Barnes and Noble.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Wordless Wednesday #19 | The Other Arc de Triomphe

Wordless Wednesday #19 | The Other Arc de Triomphe

Last week, our Wordless Wednesday post featured the Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile. This week, we feature the other Arc de Triomphe which we also visited in 2007.

The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel is located outside the Louvre and is situated 3.4 kilometers down the road from the better known Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile. “Du Carrousel” is about half the size of “De l’Étoile” and only took 2 years to finish compared to the 30 years of “De l’Étoile”. We think that both Arc de Triomphes are beautiful! How about you?

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today’s Wordless Wednesday is another from our 2007 trip to Europe. We previously shared photos of the White Cliffs of Dover in Wordless Wednesday #16 and Big Ben in Wordless Wednesday #5. It was very exciting to see the Arc de Triomphe in person since a painting of the triumphal arch has hung in our house for as long as we can remember.

WW 18 Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe was built from 1806 to 1836. It was commissioned by Napoleon to honor the Grand Armée. The arch was modeled after the Arch of Titus in Rome, according to Napoleon.org. You can read more about the history of the Arc de Triomphe at arcdetriompheparis.com/history and visitor information at arcdetriompheparis.com/visitor-information.

Happy Wednesday!

Today’s Wordless Wednesday is of the White Cliffs of Dover. This is a nod to yesterday’s post about The Tunnel. While we’ve never traveled via the Chunnel, we took a ferry from Dover to Calais in 2007. That’s when we snapped this photo!

We hope you have a happy Wednesday!

Later today, we will be posting about Robert Glenister’s narrating style in the audiobook version of The Cuckoo’s Calling.

The Forbidden City! Today’s WW hails from our 2008 trip to China, just like Travel Thursday #1 published last month. We travelled there with a band and learned quite a lot about China and Chinese culture. Stay tuned for more photos and tidbits about our trip.
