Java the deer fawn takes a well deserved nap ... just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper , go to sleep , everything is all right ... ♫ In Dreams ♫ by Roy Orbison .
Ahhhh! L & F
What a moment you captured,a shot i would dream for, everthing is all right with this photo,the Big O would have used this shot for his album cover if he had the chance.
Nice and mellow!
That's exactly what I said to myself when he finally laid his head down for a nap Eva - waited for nearly an hour ( almost froze to death ) to get this shot - and then time stood still !
It was well worth the wait Lloyd. B - would let Roy use the image free of charge were he still with us !
Hello Ray - got 4 nice and mellow shots , then Java got up and bedded down next to his mother in the shade - just glad I could record the moment !
And the best part about it kenfowkes was that I got to drink a beer while waiting for the deer fawn to lay his head down - I knew he would eventually take a nap - a voice from the past told me so !
This pic really reminds me of this one, Waldo... Like
Also FYI... Before wristwatches became popular in the 1920s, most watches were pocket watches, which often had covers and were carried in a pocket and attached to a watch chain or watch fob. In the early 1900s, the wristwatch, originally called a Wristlet, was reserved for women and considered more of a passing fad than a serious timepiece. Men, who carried pocket watches, were quoted as saying they would "sooner wear a skirt as wear a wristwatch". This changed in World War I, when soldiers on the battlefield found pocket watches to be impractical and attached their watches to their wrist by a cupped leather strap. It is also believed that Girard-Perregaux equipped the German Imperial Navy with wristwatches in a similar fashion as early as the 1880s, to be used while synchronizing naval attacks and firing artillery.
Have a great week-end!
Hello ~Marlene~ and thank you for the time capsule - reminds me of a colorful story - was visiting my parents who were taking care of my niece for the summer , barbecuing , and my niece said she was hoping for a new digital watch for her birthday - told her I would buy her an old fashioned Timex ( hour / second hand ) but she demanded that it be a Swatch ( digital Swiss watch - wonder what they would call them if they were made in Croatia ? ) Anyway , I asked her ( she was about 11 ) what she would do if she were in the military and someone told her that there was a bandit at 3 o'clock - she looked at her digital watch ( it was about 1:30 ) and she replied - Well , that bandit won't be here for 1 1/2 hours - my father was a gunner on a destroyer in the Phillipines during World War II - we both laughed soooooo hard - good times !
That's really very funny! Thanks for sharing. M.
