For the majority of my young life, wink wink, people could not have chickens in their backyards. Thus the only “wildlife” we would see in my city were squirrels and the occasional racoon or possum. Then beginning about five years ago, the city law was changed and people were allowed to have chickens in their backyards. The result? We now see foxes scurrying around our city sometimes. They are looking for dinner aka the chickens.
Thinking about that today put me in one of my rare humorous moods, so I would like to share with you about some of my fellow bloggers and the animals that come to mind when I think of them.
Alicia of forhispurpose.blog. Alicia lives in my state off the beaten path just outside a small town. I do think she has running water in her home as well as electricity. I know she has internet only because she blogs and internet is needed for that. So when I think of Alicia, I think of that old song Home on the Range. and buffalo, antelope, coyotes, and mountain lions.
Vanessa of braveblessedandbeautiful.com lives in Florida, so I am convinced when she goes out her door, she has to watch for alligators. I think alligators are probably everywhere in Florida. I wonder if Vanessa has ever eaten alligator meat? I heard that is a thing in Florida.
Temi of christianmommas.com. Temi is originally from Nigeria, so the animal that comes to mind may surprise you. When I think of Temi, I think about Golden Retrievers. She has two little boys. When I was a boy, I had a Golden Retriever who was my best friend. I think Temi’s little boys need a Golden Retriever, maybe two, or three or four. Also Golden Retrievers are gentle and kind, both of which describe Temi.
David of davidsdailydose.org. David lives in Oklahoma but the reason for the animal I would pick for David is because he teaches Kindergarten. Therefore, David needs a stable full of ponies for the little children in his class to have pony rides.
Beverley of becomingtheoilandthewine.com. Beverley lives in Barbados which is an island in the Caribbean Sea. So when I think of Beverley, I can easily envision her swimming with dolphins. Dolphins are so cool and so fun. I think she would have fun swimming with dolphins.
Brenda of becominghistapestry.com. Brenda lives in Upstate New York and likes nature walks. She looks for bears each time she goes for a walk. I know she won’t admit to it, but she has some bear friends. She loves to play in the snow with her bear friends.
Tina of pippispoetry.com. Tina is so sweet and she can be playful. However, she has shared her struggles in her blog. So I think she needs a houseful of puppies. Puppies make us smile, Puppies are playful and sweet like Tina. If not in her own home, then in a home nearby, she deserves a houseful of playful puppies.
Cynthia of cynthiaswarroom.home.blog. Cynthia lives in Kenya, so one might think I would go with a majestic lioness because Cynthia is a majestic daughter of God. In a surprise pick, I choose a koala bear from Australia for her because koala bears like to cuddle and I am sure she would love to cuddle with a koala bear.
Dawn of drawingclosertochrist.com. Should I pick an owl for her because owls represent wisdom? Should I pick an eagle because they soar like she does? Should I pick a penguin because they are fun like she is? For Dawn, I think she just needs a whole zoo of all kinds of birds and other animals. Maybe such a zoo could be in her backyard.
I know you are perhaps thinking Matt has too much time on his hands. You might be right about that. I hope you enjoyed my ever so rare display of humor. 🙂
Feel free to suggest animals for me in the comments, but please no cats because I am allergic to cats and such comments might make me sneeze.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
