Welcome to ABC Wednesday and these two wonderful people.

They are a VANISHING breed!

Don and Wanda will be married 52 years this month!!

They VISITED with us this past weekend and we talked so much
that I never took a picture.

This shot is from last year when we VISITED them at Lake Tahoe.

We met through our blogs about 4 years ago and have become
VERY dear friends.

I guess I will call this photo:
"A  VIEW of the VERTICAL tree trunk"

VEGGIES from the Farmer's Market always seem to look more
VIVID and fresh than they do in the store.

Don't you think so?

I saw several or VARIOUS  VARIETIES of cacti in the Los
Angeles area while on VACATION.

I haven't a clue what they are called.

Here we have some inVERTED tongs  VIA the Mongolian BBQ
I think they look like upside down V's.


Head over to my ABC link on the sidebar to see what others have
posted for the letter " V ".

Okay, no more VERBIAGE,

Just remember to enlarge the photos for a better VIEW.

I have developed friendships also but have new been able to visit them. Now that's wonderful. A vanishing breed for sure, we are going on 47 too. Love all your "v's".

Many congrats to the sweet yet vanishing couple! I enjoyed your post:)

I'm glad you had another great visit with Don and Wanda. What a great photo of them - even if it was last year. They probably still have that glow.

The veggies make me want to begin purchasing from a farmer's market. I've been thinking about it awhile.

What a charming photo of a couple in love! It is worth recycling.

Your "V" images and words brightened my afternoon, but, my, another alphabet drawing near to a close!
