ZOWIE how did we get to the end of the alphabet so quickly?

This is it... the letter " Z "

This silver saddle was won by Walt Disney in the early 1930's.

A $2.00 raffle ticket made it his.

It was too heavy to be used for practical purposes but it was used on

ZORRO'S horse, Tornado, for close ups when the series was filmed for television

in the 1950's.

Hubby and I are having a wonderful time with our boys and their families this week.

Here is my ZANY younger son.

Multiply that by 2 and you have the ZANIEST brothers around.

They sure have more ZIP and energy than I do.

Of course when you add the daughters in law and cousins into the mix it makes for a


And so this is ZED....

The end.....

After 7 years of posting for the ABC Wednesdays series every week,

I feel in need of a break.

I will still be posting my own blog "stuff",

Just not on a consistent basis.

I'm sure I will pop back  to see all of the wonderful posts

at ABC Wednesday,

but for now

Its so long.....

I'm not going to end the sentence with a period

That's too final


see you later.....

Ginny said...

How did they do those pictures, it looks like they are levitating!! We all need a rest from blogging, commenting can take up the better part of the day. I hope you get to do anything you want while away from the computer!

Great post again!

Lmkazmierczak said...

What an obscure fact about that saddle...loved reading your post. All the best♪

Joy said...

Love the fun fact about the saddle, I seem to remember that the Lone Ranger's saddle was pretty ornate too. You have ended your ABC contribution on a high (jump)but then your posts have always have an imaginative use of the letter.

Ann said...

Gattina said...

Lots of Z you found ! My brain went on strike. I am in this meme since 2007 and will continue, probably one day you will be back too :) !

Trubes said...

You certainly have a zany family, seem to be great fun, real zest for life!
Sorry you're taking a break from abcw just as I'm getting going, I do understand the need for a break though!
Ironically, it was abcw that got me writing again on my blog site after a break of nearly two years..
Good luck and best wishes,
