Camera Critters #1

I came across this great meme which is all about photos of animals/critters last weekend, and knew right away it was perfect for this blog lol! The rules are pretty simple, any animal wild or pet is ok as long as it is your own or a family member's photo. In other words original, and not snagged off the net.

For my very first entry I'll use one of my fave photos of my punk rock doggie Max. :p

I didn't have to do anything to achieve this punk look. This is how he looks naturally after play, and before his lengthy hair is trimmed. Max is a terrier/Lhasa mix.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a great week ahead! If you are stopping in for BYB Sunday that will be online later Sunday afternoon.

Nostalgic Saturday

Last week Abbey kindly invited me to join in for Nostalgic Saturday, which is a weekly challenge where we post old photos that are special to us, and tell a story about them. With my new scanner I thought this would definitely be a fun meme to participate in. :D

This is a vintage photo of the house in Nyirbeltek, Hungary where my Dad was born in August 1922

And yep that is my Dad (not certain on an exact age) in front of the house where he was born, and lived in until about age 5. Relatives of ours continued living there for generations to come, and might still be, but I have been unable to confirm it.

I initially posted this photo in 1999 to my original genealogy website, and was delighted to hear from someone who had travelled through Nyirbeltek in the early 90's. Apparently little has changed there over the 8 decades since my father, and his parents called it there home. I found this very interesting as here in North America places seem to change so much, and the neighbourhood I grew up in here in Toronto little resembles the way it looked when I was a child in the 1970's.



Life in the Urban Zoo

Coming to you live from the dreaded Didier-Darroch compound somewhere in the heart of the city of Toronto, Canada this is my blog about life in the Urban Zoo our "pet name" if you will for the compound. This blog will relate far too much information on life in the city in general, raising kids, frightful teenagers, and even more frightful adult children, ageing parents, our numerous pets, dogs, cats, birds, and other assorted critters.
