ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " G "



I GUESS I must figure out what to post for the letter " G ".
The first picture is a GORGEOUS piece of GLASS created by Chihuly.
I love the GLITTER and GLEAM of his work.
The GLAZE makes the GLASS GLIMMER.
Chihuly always incorporates nature into his art.
Its not a GIMMICK.
He loves the GRACEFULNESS of shells and flowers.



Which pair would look GLAMOROUS on you?
I love the way the GLASSES are displayed.
I can imagine how much they cost just by the way they are displayed.
They might as well cost a GAZILLION dollars.
I can't afford them.




When fellow blogger Bev and I visited Nashville a few months
ago, we were able to GO to a live radio show.
It is The GRAND Ole Opry.
The program has been around for at least 50 years.
We were so GLAD we went and could enjoy so many
famous Country singers and comedians.
Be sure to enlarge the shots to GET the full effect of the show.



Larry GATLIN of the GATLIN Brothers performed
"Houston" and several other GREAT hits that they made famous.
GO to my ABC link on the sidebar to GET a GLIMPSE of
what others have posted for the letter G.
Thanks for stopping by.
Nothing GLITZY about this post, just GOOD fun.

Not "good" fun, but "GREAT" fun here! I'd love to go to the Grand Old Opry, but it'd be quite a hike for me from the west coast of Canada. Love the glass bowl - gorgeous artwork!
