Monday/ ‘I distrust camels’

‘I distrust camels IMG_7617 smand anyone else who can go for a week without a drink’ says this sign outside the Smith restaurant and bar here on 15th Ave.  Joe E. Lewis was an American comedian and singer (1902-1971), and was married briefly to Martha Stewart.  Even camels need to drink water after four or five days in peak summer, but in winter they are known to get by without actually needing to drink water, for months.  I suppose Mr Lewis would have abstained entirely of socializing with the little fennec fox – here’s an old post with its picture – that can live its entire life in the desert without free water (though it will drink water if it finds it).
