One in the tank after this one, and then it’s dry. Do send in your photos, lockdown or otherwise (maximum 2, though I’ve been known to put up 3, like today), along with a caption. Today’s reader is Alicia Fraile from Spain. She sent a fossil photo, though it looks carved rather than preserved. Alicia’s captions are indented.
I live in Madrid, Spain, and I work both as a psychiatrist (outpatients; main job) and translator (English to Spanish) of medical texts. The lockdown meant working from home, with innumerable phone calls, going out very very little for months.
Attached is a selfie trying on my latest facemask (and hair in disarray, lockdown’s style), compulsory everywhere. This is a strange summer we are living, and let’s see what Fall brings us.
As it took me many weeks to be able to read a book while in lockdown, I crocheted amigurumis, most of which I gave away to friends and familiy; this is one of the latest, but pretty cute, right?
The ‘reader’s wildlife photo’ with a question and question mark is a fossil that a patient gave me as a present about twenty years ago. He got it in the mountains south of Madrid (Montes de Toledo), I think. That’s all I know about it and I would love to have a name, perhaps you or the readers would be so kind to provide one? It is the only ornament on my table and has survived a few house moves.
JAC: I wrote Alicia that the fossil looks suspiciously handmade, but readers can weigh in below.
