It's time to again post for ABC Wednesday.
The letter is " V ".
I'm going to post a VARIETY of photos and thoughts for it.
No VISIONS of Sugar Plums are in our future this year.
We unfortunately have to forego our annual trek to Disneyland.
No Santa parade...no pretty lights....
There's always next year.
Some VERTICAL lines to brighten your day.
Thanks for looking at my post and leaving a comment.
I also want to thank Roger and Denise for the fun ABC Wednesday series.

Today we are at the 20th week of ABC Wednesday....year # 9!
The letter of the day is " U ".
I am calling this...
Our local South Placer Fire Department personal are hard working
The California Highway Patrol are definitely UNSUNG Heroes.
Our Placer County Sheriff's department K9 unit are pretty much UNSUNG too.
The Placer County Sheriff Department shows why they are heroes in this enactment.
Men like Sheriff Bonner put their lives on the line everyday.
I wanted to show my appreciation for them by making them my Heroes.
They are UNSUNG any longer.

ABC Wednesday has brought us TO THE letter " T ".
I guess THE most obvious THING for me TO say is....
Happy THANKSGIVING Day TO THOSE of us in THE U.S.A.
Actually it doesn't matter where one lives,
It's good TO be THANKFUL.
Here is our Crepe Myrtle TREE TURNING from leaves TO TWIGS
at THIS TIME of year.
On a TRIP up THE Mendocino Coast of California
we saw an interesting sign.
THE TSUNAMI Hazard Zone
THEN THERE is our TRIP TO San Francisco a few months ago.
We couldn't believe how light THE TRAFFIC was on THE Golden Gate Bridge
We could see so much construction going on as THEY finished TWO TUNNELS
for simplifying THE TRAFFIC jam.
Don't forget TO enlarge each photo. THE detail will be easier TO see.

Today's letter in our trip around the alphabet is " S ".
It would be no SURPRISE if I used my name, SUE
SO, SURPRISE, I'm not going to use it.
Instead I am SELECTING SEVERAL unrelated SCENES.
This one I call
The SHACK is in SHAMBLES.
SHADOW-play SANS color.
A STUDY in SHADOWS
STICKERS for fruit boxes.
To SEE the photos clearly, please enlarge each SHOT.

Today is Veterans Day in the U.S.A.
I am remembering all those who gave so much to give us this wonderful country.
I love my country... Warts and all....
In light of all the discontent raging in our land
I feel the need to post beautiful, peaceful splashes of Fall.
Happy Peaceful Veterans Day...

It seems we are REALLY arriving at the last segment of the alphabet.
Todays letter is " R "
It's all about REMEMBERING.
Today I am REMEMBERING my trip with my blogging friend, Beverly,
and the ROOSTER statue we saw in front of a RESTAURANT in Nashville TN.
We went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and saw the many gold RECORDS
by famous RECORDING artists.
The year was 2011.
One of my favorite sculptures was this one of ROY Acuff and Minnie Pearl,
at the Hall of Fame.
" Oh, ROY "
And as an added bonus
Please REMEMBER to RECYCLE !

The letter for ABC Wednesday is " Q ".
This is QUITE a difficult letter for me.
I decided on QUOTES to fill the bill.
If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams
and you will always look lovely.
Roald Dahl - The Twits
It's no use to go back to yesterday
because I was a different person then.
Lewis Carroll - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
It's not what you look at that matters,
It's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
In every walk with Nature
One receives far more than he seeks.
John Muir - 1877
Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
Because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
Roald Dald The Minpins
Thanks for reading all the QUOTES.
Don't forget to enlarge the photos to see the detail.

Many thanks to all the fine PEOPLE who make ABC Wednesday POSSIBLE.
I decided to make a POST PERTAINING to
Not the usual way one looks at their vertical blinds.
Just a different PERSPECTIVE.
This really is only one PHOTO.
Coit Tower PHOTOGRAPHED between two buildings in Chinatown.
Are those diamond shaped tunnels or is it just a different PERSPECTIVE?
Outside looking inside at the outside.
Enlarge the PHOTOS to view this PARTICULAR PERSPECTIVE.
It all depends on your POINT of View.

In my OPINION, Time is flying by.
We are already at the Letter " O " in our trip around the alphabet.
Words for today include
Up and OVER
OLD St. Mary's Church
Rocklin, CA dedicated 1883
My younger son, Mark.
Today is his birthday....
If you have to go to the ER...Emergency Room,
What better people to have take care of you than my son Mark and his nursing friends.
Mark is also OFFICIALLY ON the volunteer team for the Salem Police Department.
Happy Birthday, Dad and I love you with OUR whole hearts.
Thanks for looking. Don't forget to enlarge the photos to see them more clearly.

ABC Wednesday is here again.
Today's letter is " N ".
The Platter's hit from 1958.
Heavenly shades of NIGHT are falling - It's Twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling, tis twilight time.
When purple- colored curtains mark the end of day
I'll hear you, my dear, at twilight time.
For some reason I can NOT upload the rest of my photos to this post,
So this is where I will end my Letter "N".
Enlarging the photos will show the detail.

I am late for ABC Wednesday but I wanted to post MY letter " M " choices anyway.
This is one of MY MUSICALLY gifted Granddaughters.
She plays MELLOPHONE in her high school MARCHING Band.
The band spends MANY hours preparing for competition.
Doesn't she have a gorgeous MANE of red hair?
Thanks for looking.
