In my OPINION each week presents its OWN set of particular

The letter " O " is definitely ONE  OF those.

The first photo is a River OTTER.

The picture was taken at the Nimbus Fish Hatchery this past

The OTTERS can be found along the American and the Sacramento
especially during the spawning season.

A word to the wise...ONLY cast members are allowed where the
prickly cactus grows.

If you enlarge these photos you will see the detail more clearly.

It looks like these OLD-FASHIONED dancing shoes still have
a lot  OF  "Swing"  left in them.

I don't think ONE needs to be an OLD-TIMER to appreciate
their charm.

Lastly, in my ODD collection OF photos, we find a lot OF very
ORANGE rust.

OVER-ALL, finding words starting with " O " wasn't as difficult
as I thought it would be.

I want to take this OPPORTUNITY to thank Denise Nesbitt and
Roger (and the entire ABC Wednesday group) for their dilligent
work every week.

OH yes,

go OVER to the ABC link ON my sidebar to see what
OTHERS have posted for the letter " O ".

I love old fashioned. Just saw the movie "42" which is awesome but one of the things I loved was seeing the old trains, cars and buses and reliving some of the nicer things of the past.

Great post. Have a great week.

Kansas Bob said...

Did not know that you had otters in the rivers out by you Sue.

ChrisJ said...

I was watching one of David Attenborough's videos while waiting at the optometrists the other day and they had a lovely segment on otters. I saw sea otters when we went up to Alaska a number of years ago. Such cute faces -- but probably not so cute in disposition if you get too near.

Kara Claflin said...

When my daughter was little she loved otters. We used to see them in the river occasionally.
