Valentine Memory Chain

Tonight I thought I would share a few images that I thought about during a Valentine Memory Chain.

Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) - Taronga Zoo - Valentine Couple - Bird CoupleYou may wonder why this image came up in my memory.

The picture is of a pair of Black-necked Storks (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus).

Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) - Female - Yellow Iris - Yellow Eyes - Stork couple - Valentine Stork I have been thinking about Australia the past few days as I have a friend who just flew there and I will be heading down under for a course next month.

I then remembered that I had been in Sydney six years ago for Valentine’s Day and had written a post about this pair of storks I saw at the Taronga Zoo.

I called them Valentine Storks.

Black-necked Stork - Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus - Taronga Zoo - Wetland Birds - Australian BirdsCan you see the distinctive difference between the male and female stork?

Century Old Valentine - Two Girls - Valentines Greetings - Old CardsI then thought about some classic Valentine’s cards that I posted long ago.

Century Old Valentine - 1911 Valentine Card - Sweetheart - Large HeartMemories then flooded back about those really awkward Valentine card exchanges from grade school. We always had to give a card to all the other students in our class. It was a real struggle to pick which card went to each person. Of course figuring out who got the best card was not a problem. I am still friends with her today even though we have not seen each other since 5th grade. It is nice to have Facebook.
