Wordless Wednesday — Hump Day, Yeah! Posted on August 28, 2013 by Debbie This camel showed up outside our mall over the weekend. Camel rides $5. Photos $10. Memories priceless. (And no, I don’t know these kids!) Related
Random. Right? I think random events and details surround us so often. Love that you shared this one. One just has to shake one’s head and smile.
Thanks, Barb. I don’t remember seeing this advertised in our local paper, so it *was* pretty random — for me, at least!
FLAWLESS post for Hump Day, Debbie!!!!
LOVE the photo! I think a camels face is adorable!
Happy Hump Day, dear lady!
“I think a camel’s face is adorable!” Me, TOO, Ron! For some reason, they always look like they’ve got a secret — something that’s terribly funny — but they’re not sharing!
Thanks for dropping by — Enjoy your Wednesday!
Debbie, this photo immediately took me back to a memory–picture of my two children riding a camel, taken by their dad when he took them to the circus during his Sunday visitation. Of course that triggered even more memories but we won’t go there!
I’ve never ridden a camel, Kathy, but I was sooo tempted to hop on this one’s back! He (she?) looked so happy and calm and really seemed to enjoy being the center of attention. Glad I was able to spark a good memory for you!
Hump day – hahaha! Thanks for the laugh. I think camels are cute, but once I found out they spit, I tend to keep my distance. Ewww!
I’d heard they spit, too, Janna, but this one seemed way more civilized than that, ha! In fact, it was such a temptation NOT to reach for my money and hop on board!
It really is hump day! Great photo!
Thanks, Monica, for the complement AND the Like! Hope yours was wonderful!
Was there a circus in town? A carnival? Or just this crazy camel, doing its thing? Context is everything!
What a great “hump day” photo. I just love it!
It wasn’t a circus, Linda. From what I could tell, it was more of a traveling exhibit. They had a llama, some goats, and some kind of “exotic” cat (I put the quotes there because it was billed as a tiger or something, but looked more like a big house cat to me, ha!)
Brought fun memories. Cole rode the Camel at the ABQ zoo when he was a tot and loved it. And I rode and elephant at the local mall when I was about 4, My mom can not imagine what possessed her to let me ride an elephant–she figures it must have been a bad four year old day. :-D. But I still remember the tough hide of the elephant and it was FUN!
The most my folks ever let me ride was a pony, and I so enjoyed it. Domer got to ride a llama once and, because the poor animal kept turning around every so often to check out its rider, I think Domer found it most memorable (though not necessarily in a good way, ha!)
