Being bold

Today’s bloganuary prompt: What does it mean to live boldly?

Here is some small birds living boldly. What do you think?

The Wedge-tailed Eagle is the largest Eagle in Australia and the third largest in the world, with a wing span of just under 210cm or seven feet.

Smaller birds aren’t impressed when a Wedge-tailed Eagle invade their space and will swoop and dive.

Even if the Wedge-tailed Eagle has found it’s lunch, there’s no peaceful place to eat.

In Australia Pied Magpies are well know for their territorial swooping of anything from small dogs, people and even Wedge-tailed Eagles

Bloganuary – What was your favourite toy as a child?

I had a truck
it was a big truck
I was a small child
I would ride around on my truck
my mother said
I still have my truck
it’s made of pressed metal
the driver still sits proud
old and worn
but will always be loved

Boomaroo is an amalgamation of Boomerang and and Kangaroo. This one is from around 1955 or 1958. The trucks were made from 1955 to 1960. There is a similar one for sale on e-bay for $900

This is the information from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney about my truck
