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.

Some letters are a struggle for me.
The letter " K " is one of those.
" K " stands for KIDS.
" K " stands for KIDS playing KIDS hand games.
" K " stands for one of my KIDS playing with his KID.
Thanks for looking and KINDLY remember to go to the link on my sidebar to see what others have posted on the ABC sidebar.

ABC Wednesday seems to roll around so quickly.
Today's letter is " J ".
Our friend Beverly is coming to visit next week.
One of the things we will probably do is take a JAUNT up to Apple Hill.
Perhaps we'll have some JAVA and apple cider donuts....
Hopefully we will see a lot of JACK O LANTERNS in the fields.
Actually I don't call them JACK O LANTERNS until they look like this.
The more JOCULAR the better.
If Beverly doesn't have JET LAG we might go to the High Hand Nursery
and see if we can find some pretty JARDINIERES'.
After all of our JAUNTS we may JUST sit and JABBER about Life.
Enjoy and don't forget to go to the link on my sidebar to see what others have posted for " J ".

Do you ever have a hard time finding the exact picture you want to post?
I sure have.
I am trying to find a particular photo IN my archives.
IT'S a great picture of an INDIAN family....
Think I can find IT?
So on to my second choice...
An IMAGE of Fall to come.
I'M trying to IMAGINE how beautiful the mountains will be this Fall.
The Birches and Aspens will be decked out IN their Fall finery.
Can you IMAGINE how lovely IT will be?
Thanks for looking and thank you to the wonderful helpers at ABC Wednesday.

Tonight we had a genuine date.
Hubby and I got a bite to eat and then went to a concert.
We saw the Oakridge Boys and Wynonna and The Big Noise.
We have been fans of The Boys for 40 years.
Their voices are beginning to be a bit rusty but what fantastic entertainers.
They are very gracious and I think genuine.
Hubby and I were disappointed with Wynonna.
She really seems so full of herself.
I have to say though,
She does have a great set of pipes.
All in all it really was a fun night.

Why not just say
Speed Bumps ahead?
HAPPY ABC Wednesday
Celebrating the Letter " H "

It seems the weeks roll around so quickly.
Here it is again...ABC Wednesday!
Today's letter is " G ".
Our GET-AWAY last week was so worthwhile.
Rest after a very busy week and the weather was perfect.
GOING to Lake Tahoe always GIVES us pleasure.
The Lake wasn't as blue as it usually is.
California wildfires had caused a smokey haze to blanket the Tahoe Basin.
Maybe someday we will GET how to take Selfies.
At least I didn't cut my Hubby's head off completely....
We love going to The Pope Estate and enjoying the lovely GROUNDS.
Thanks for coming by.
Now GO to the ABC link on my sidebar to see other posts.

Wow, how time FLIES!
I can't believe it's time FOR ABC Wednesday again.
This week's letter is " F ".
Hubby and I will FINALLY be FLEEING the hot Central Valley
of California and spend a FEW days up in the mountains
at our FAVORITE place....Lake Tahoe.
I can smell the FIRS and pine trees already.
I need to gaze at that deep blue water and maybe even talk to a FEW
FRIENDLY FOLKS along the way too.
We might even take a side trip to see how FANNY Bridge is doing this year.
It is called FANNY Bridge ,FOR obvious reasons, by the locals.
Thanks FOR looking and leaving a comment and a thank you also to the ABC Team
who FAITHFULLY comment each and every week.

After having a wonderful conversation with Miguel on FaceBook this morning,
I began to think of this young man I met in Mexicali.
I wonder what has happened to Antonio.
He greeted me like I was his long lost Grandma.
Antonio's face will forever haunt me.
He did not want me to leave.
I think I'm going to cry.

It's always interesting to see what people post for the Letter " E ".
Many times it is an ELUSIVE letter to describe.
I think these crystals are quite ELEGANT.
In this shot I put the EMPHASIS on the crystals and ERASED most of the background.
This ENTRY is just the beginning
Or perhaps it's the END.
Don't forget to ENLARGE the photos.
