About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

The Alphabet Club - Saturday detention for K....


is for

KILLER ANIMALS of AUSTRALIA

Tricked you! You thought that I was going to give you a nice, sweet list of Australian "K"s, didn't you?  lol!

Koalas

Kangaroos

Kalgoorlie (where they mine for opals)

Kitten Stitching

Kaye (that's me!)


but no, just watch this video and you will know to be wary of the 

KILLER ANIMALS of AUSTRALIA




Now, if you are not sure what The Alphabet Club is all about ....

  Well, it is the brainchild of Chiara from The Grey Tail and Jo from Serendipitous Stitching and is loosely based on the premise of the movie "The Breakfast Club" - you can see the button for The Alphabet Club on my right sidebar.

On the first Saturday of each month, members of the club have "detention" and have to post about something that will enlighten others about their culture (as blogland is so diverse).  Of course, there should/could be something stitchy in there, if possible. Each month will be a different letter of the alphabet - hence the club's name - and, of course, we started with "A" and now we are up to "K"

If you want to see what the other detainees have been up to, please have a look here.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Sir Terry Pratchett summed it up best -
"Almost all animals and plants in XXXX are dangerous; when Death requested a book about the dangerous creatures of XXXX from his library, he was subsequently hit by a large pile of books consisting of the various volumes of "Dangerous Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, Fish, Jellyfish, Insects, Spiders, Crustaceans, Grasses, Trees, Mosses and Lichens of Terror Incognita", the total books going up to Volume 29C Part 3, while a request for information about the harmless creatures merely produced a note saying "Some of the sheep"."

It's so funny when I sometimes think I'd like to go visit and then I remember I'm completely unprepared to meet anything like that. We don't even have poisonous snakes up here.

Brigitte said...

Hilarious, absolutely hilarious, Kaye, thanks. Both my husband and me were laughing out loud when watching the video, particularly when the koala was starting its attack.

Crazee4books said...

Obviously the Kangaroo is the most evil, diabolical.
cunning, vicious and dangerous of the bunch!!!
Followed closely after by the Koala. All the others
are merely posers and impostors. Beware of the cute
ones!!!

Thank you for the public service announcement Kaye.
We now return to the regularly scheduled stitching blog!

Cheers!
