ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our seventh round-some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "S".
Scat. No, not as in the jazz singing style (which is improvisational), not as in, 'shoo' or 'scoot', but as in animal poop.

But, in the animal kingdom, it serves many purposes; a communication device, so to speak, full of information. Read up on the square shaped wombat scat that I've provided a link for. Fascinating (and a really great video clip).
As romantic in appearance these are, I think I'd rather have the modern day version of them. I think. I'm no snow shoe expert, so don't take my word for it. If Joe Spadoman reads this blog, he might be able to pipe in a word of advice or two as I believe he says that he makes them. Although, he did not make these. This pair resides in my friends garage.
My sister, Teresa, who lives in Hilo, Hawaii is the owner of this cutey-pie. He is more grown up now, but his name is: Samwise! Sorry to have 'cut' his ears off in this photo, but I had to grab the shot before he came forward to get some pats on his head!
"Who made the salad?" Well, I did! This was good enough to eat and sitting here now looking at the image, I wish I could have it right now! I will say that it was scrumptious.
