Today marks the anniversary and the BEGINNING of the ABC
Wednesday BLOG.
The date was July 25, 2007.
 Denise Nesbitt asked a BUNCH
of us if we wanted to do a weekly BLOG post with a letter of the
Here is the very first post I did for ABC Wednesday.
A is for ACTION.
Our family loved going to the soap track car
races and watching all the cars BANG together.

Perhaps I should make myself clear.  Hitting the BRICK wall is just a
figure of speech.  It means we had a change of plans.
All the BEAUTIFUL plans went BUST.
We  (Hubby and I) spent the BETTER part of Saturday in the
Emergency Room.  Hubby wasn't feeling well.
Hubby was experiencing some problems,
So, instead of BEING on a mini vacation
we stared at the BLAND walls of the hospital.
Everything is fine now BUT our chance to wish the BRIDE and
Groom congratulations at a wedding reception never happened.

We never got to the mountains
 or even see the BRIDGES of the BAY Area.

I say "BOO"!!
No new pictures on my camera either.
What a BUMMER.

Don't forget to BOOGIE over to the ABC link on my sidebar to
see what others have posted for the letter B.

'Cars bang together' reminds me of years ago when I rode on this 'go kart' in a mall. I banged my knee and the ouch turned me off the game forever. I still like to watch though.

Cars bang together is a new expression I learned today!

You have been faithful and intent here, (not jumping from blog to blog as I have one ), congratulations !
That kind of bangs are not very desired, fortunately you are ok now.
Warm greetings to you and yours!
Also we have got some summer like day now, it has been very rainy chilly summer.

Lisa said...

Fantastic walk down memory lane. It IS an amazing meme and your dedication over the years is inspiring!

Reader Wil said...

Excellent B words!Thanks for your comment! I am back after a delay of 26 hours due to a typhoon in Hong Kong. We spent one night sleeping on the floor of the waiting area of the airport and one day talking to fellow passengers. Now I am going to have my mail sorted out.

Hildred and Charles said...

So sorry that your plans went all awry, but glad that everything is o.k. now.

Roy Schulze said...

I like your photo of what I assume is the Golden Gate bridge. There's so much beauty in that structure that it's nice to see someone take a different view of it.

Oh, and Begonia Pope thanks you for your visit.
