MORE OF "PORTRAITS" in the August 17th Issue. We Now Start Part 1 of "Animal Mothers"
Children are always letting their curiosity get the best of them, but our pets are no better. So, when you have both a cat and a kitten in your home, you can expect that they're going to be up to no goo more often than not. While this kitty may have had good intentions, perhaps reaching for a treat for both her and mom, it's more likely that she's just adding to the chaos. It's like when your kid tries to make you breakfast in bed. Their hearts are always in the right place but they tend to leave us with quite the mess to clean up. Fortunately for this kitten, her mom was around to help her reach those snacks. It's one way parents can bond with their kids!
Look at these two lovebirds! The way they're looking at their offspring with such admiration and pride resembles every new parent as they look upon their newborn in the hospital. Likely these two lovebirds are proud of the results of their combined DNA. When this 50 Shades of Grey ladybird and Tucan Sam male mated, they produced some truly unique birds. As the perfect combination of the two, this look of admiration won't last forever. After several sleepless nights, they'll probably start looking upon their kids with eyes of exhaustive regret.
One of the most difficult parts of being a new parent is waking up every night to feed the baby. While humans are stuck powering through these first few months, mothers of the animal kingdom have figured out a way to multitask so that they don't even have to move when their offspring get hungry. Take this rhino for example. While she's in a deep sleep dreaming about what life was like before she had a kid, her newborn is able to safely feed itself without disturbing mom. This gives a whole new perspective to late-night feedings! If only humans could figure out a way to feed their child without having to wake up.
Whose Baby is This?
Every mother or father has at one time or another called their child by the wrong name. It's only human nature! However, it's not often that parents forget what their children look like and take home a different kid by accident. But that's totally what this kitty mother just did! This cat mistook this owl for one of her kittens, and it took her a while to figure out her mistake. Too long. It wasn't until she started bathing the strange feathered kitten that she even took a second look at her baby. This photo was caught after the cat paused, suddenly realizing this wasn't her child. Hilariously enough, the owl seems to be quite surprised too!
Play Time is Over
Tugging on a child’s ear is a form of discipline as old as time. It causes enough discomfort to get a kid to behave without causing any actual pain, and it seems like humans aren’t the only ones to use this technique. Parents of the animal kingdom will often carry their offspring by the ear when they aren’t behaving. That’s exactly what this mama bear is doing as she carries her child by the ear. While there’s no way of being certain if she’s bringing her furry child out of their cave for some fresh air or back into the cave where it’s safe, this mom definitely has their best interest in mind. It may look harsh, but it doesn’t hurt and it’s actually a common way polar bears carry around their young.
The Joys Of Parenthood
When you become a parent, a lot of things about you are going to change, especially your priorities. You begin to stop spending money on frivolous things to buy cribs, diapers, playpens, baby swings, safety gates, and baby locks. Why? Because parents want to keep their space clean and their kids out of harm's way. When we bring dogs into our homes, we tend to do the same

We continue with Part 3 of Photos from just one of Hundreds of Groovy History Features. This Feature : Called "67 PHOTOS THAT CAPTURED WAY MORE THEN EXPECTED" by Jacob Shelton. Here is the Link to AL 67 Photos with Verbiage in case you can't wait for the next few weeks / Issues.
As a young woman Sally Field’s career was launched into the stratosphere with her role as Gidget in 1965, the surfer babe with a knack for getting into trouble. Field was only 18 when she won the role, impressing the casting director with her spunk and down to Earth honesty. She explained: After the first night of my workshop, a casting guy asked me if I had an agent. I didn't, but I still went in for an interview. The waiting room was filled with girls who looked like movie stars. They all had professional head shots; the only pictures I had were wallet photos of me with my friends. At my screen test, I walked in and said, ‘Which one is the camera?’ The crew members were like, ‘Oh, boy.’ But the casting director said, ‘You're it.’ God was looking out for me. He thought he'd throw me in the ocean and see if I could swim.
Taken by Felice Beato, the original version of this photo was hand colored by the photographer. He preferred to take full-length portraits taken in the studio in order to focus on the traditional costumes and traditions of the culture that fascinated him.
His photos of Japan and Japanese traditions featured vignetting around the edges in order to give them a more painterly quality. The traditional armored costume shown here was worn by the samurai, a soldier of a noble class who carried out the wishes of Japan’s rulers from the 12th century until the 1800s.
It's not exactly clear what the samurai is holding in his hand, but even if its a tickle weapon this guy has enough sharp implements on him that will make you want to keep your distance.
The life of Winston Churchill was sculpted by his dedication to Great Britain and its army. As a member of the 4th Queen's Hussar's Cavalry the young Churchill recognized that he was serving during “the august, unchallenged and tranquil glories of the Victorian Era,” a time when England was totally unchallenged as a military force.
During his time as a member of Hussar’s Cavalry Churchill’s time was divided between a seven month summer training season of training and five months of extended leave.
During a period of leave in 1895 Churchill took off for Cuba in order to have a personal adventure before shipping off to India with the rest of his regiment.
Following their engagement, John F. Kennedy and Jacquelyn Bouvier went on a trip to to the Kennedy family home in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod with a reporter in tow to capture their newly engaged bliss.
An entire issue of Life Magazine was dedicated to their engagement photos. It was published on July 20 with the headline “Senator Kennedy Goes a-Courting.” It’s clear that Jackie loves John in these photos, but she later explained that her love wasn’t meant to be taken as putting him on a pedestal:
Now, I think that I should have known that he was magic all along. I did know it — but I should have guessed that it would be too much to ask to grow old with and see our children grow up together. So now, he is a legend when he would have preferred to be a man.
As strange as it may sound, Civil War veterans were still alive and kicking well into the 20th century. Famously, the last surviving Civil War veteran passed away in 1956, although it’s likely that there were a few more kicking around at the same time.
During the Civil War there young men were conscripted into battle if they could hold a gun and follow orders, which means that some veterans likely had entire adult lives to lead after they served in the bloodiest war fought on American soil. Imagine the kinds of stories that guys like this must have had.
Sophia Loren has been one of the most eye catching actress since her debut in the 1951 film Quo Vadis when she was only 17 years old. Since then she’s appeared in a myriad of roles playing sexy seductresses to comedic foils. In all that time it’s never felt like she’s made a misstep.
When asked if there’s anything she would have done differently with her life, Loren offered this sage advice: In a long, long career like I had—and by the way, I have—it’s very difficult to be able to criticize some of the moments that you do by yourself that you never tell to other people. It’s a very normal thing to do because you cannot every time have a big victory – no, there have been moments, maybe weak moments, where you did something that you are not really very happy about.
We tend to think of Albert Einstein as this vaulted genius who handed down theories and equations from on high, but he was nothing like that. Einstein didn’t see himself as God’s gift to intellect, but as an artist whose medium was science. In 1929 he told the Saturday Evening Post:
I believe in intuitions and inspirations. I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am… [but] I would have been surprised if I had been wrong… I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
By combining knowledge, imagination, and inspiration Einstein was able to open himself up to discoveries that many scientists and heavy thinkers would likely ignore.
During the 1970s one of the easiest ways to get around the country was hitchhiking… even if it was a little dangerous. Young people were drawn to the call of the two lane black top and the freedom that came with hopping in a random car and seeing where they ended up.
Some form or another of hitchhiking has existed since travel via cart has been a thing, but during the Great Depression the idea of sticking out your thumb and heading on down the road.
In the ‘70s it made sense to put your life in the hands of a stranger, but as the road grew more dangerous young people stopped hitchhiking and let this mode of travel slip into memory.
Explorations of the Arctic were all the rage at the turn of the century. Explorers were competing with one another to be the first person to reach the South Pole and in 1911 British explorer Robert Falcon Scott set out on the Terra Nova Expedition to make his mark on history.
The party experienced intense blizzards, animals that dropped due to the bone chilling cold, and claims that the men were on nothing more than a “pole hunt.”
On January 16, 1912, after nearly a year of hardship Scott’s team set out across the Great Ice Barrier and journeyed through white nothingness until they reached a flag, they’d been beaten to the poll by Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen by a month.
We tend of think of Charlie Chaplin as his most famous character the Tramp, but he was nothing like the bowler hat wearing, down on his luck man that he portrayed onscreen.
He started his life as a boy in poverty, the son of a failing actress, but he quickly took to the stage and made his way to America from London. It didn’t take long before he was a sensation. While performing in the New York vaudeville world the concept of the Tramp came to him via memories of his father. He explained:
It was just released whole from somewhere deep within my father, it was really my father’s alter ego, the little boy who never grew up: ragged, cold, hungry, but still thumbing his nose at the world.

The detail work is mesmerizing. For some the vintage color palette and subject matter cannot help but trigger bittersweet memories.

Delta Wanderings – A GRAND OLD TIME WITH RIVER OTTERS
Delta Wanderings – A grand old time
What a treat last night, we came across a romp of about 8 River Otters as they met up with another romp. We counted 15 Otters in all and watched them as they fed on crayfish while the young pups wrestled and played in the water.
The funny thing was as we watched them a ski boat went by totally oblivious to 8 Otters swimming right next to their boat. People ask how do we find all these critters? It starts with paying attention to your surroundings.
Effusion Gallery is happy to offer two unique collections from artist Anna Sweet.
