It is time for ABC Wednesday again.
The letter is " P ".
I've decided to POST some PHOTOGRAPHS
for the words....
PURE .... PORTRAIT ....PHOTOGRAPH.
Isai is showing PURE joy.
He got new drum sticks from his friend Julie (who took this fabulous PICTURE)
The PHOTO was taken at Basecamp, Mexicali, Mexico.
I may be biased ,
but I am in love with this PHOTO my son took of my PRETTY granddaughter.
This sculpture is entitled
" Self-PORTRAIT. "
It's one of my favorites and sits PROUDLY in my curio cabinet.
Thanks for taking a PEEK.

Here we are at ABC Wednesday again.
Today's letter is " O ".
My 2 week trip to Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico is....
I will be sharing just a few OF the photos taken
Showing what I did there.
This is Basecamp.
1200 high school kids and adult leaders from our church go ON this annual
time to serve the people of Mexico.
We cracked 200 dozen eggs everyday for scrambled eggs.
That's 2400 eggs each and every day!
The Kitchen team fed 1200 people breakfast and dinner each day.
Here's some of OUR team...myself included up and at it...at 4:30 every morning.
It's amazing what can be done ON small propane grills.
OUR "bedroom" for the first week until the big "M.A.S.H. tents were put up.
Here are the Mash tents that we slept in for the rest of the time.
Big and ugly... but we didn't care...we were so exhausted we could sleep
11 homes were built for deserving families.
The families were chosen by the local pastors.
We were there to build.
Thanks for looking at my OFFICIALLY OVER photos.

I am combining 3 LETTERS this week since
I will be LEAVING for MY annual Church MEXICO trip in just a few days.
I'm sorry that I will be out of the LOOP for 3 Wednesdays.
NO particular reason for posting these photos from MY archives.
I just like the designs.
I think this is quite an elegant window design.
Photo taken in LAS Vegas a few years ago.
LAS Vegas is so full of glitz and glamor.
Enlarging the photos will give you a LOT more detail.
This is the camp I will going to and these are the hungry MOUTHS that the kitchen
team I am a part of will be feeding....1200 teens, college, and adults.
LOTS of MEALS.... LOTS of slicing and dicing!
Believe ME, our team will NEED boatloads of energy.
Those tents in the background are our sleeping quarters.
NIFTY MASH- type tents.
See you all in a few weeks.

It seems that the weeks roll around so quickly.
Here it is again, ABC Wednesday.
Today's letter is " K ".
My first photo is one of my favorite CD's.
Of course, I am partial, since it is a CD that my son and his wife sang on.
My son sings bass and my daughter in law sings soprano.
Their group was called KINDRED Spirit.
This is a blast from the past, circa 1990.
I wish you could all hear this...it's still terrific after all these years.
On a different note
Here's a shot of the Circle K gasoline sign taken in Las Vegas.
Thanks for looking and make sure you go to my sidebar to see what others have
posted for ABC Wednesday Letter " K ".

We seem to be speeding along in our trip around the alphabet.
Today's letter is " J ".
JULIE, JONQUILS, JEEP, JUST BECAUSE, JUNGLE....
This is one of my best friends.
Her name is JULIE and we celebrated her special birthday this past weekend.
I'm not sure if these flowers are JONQUILS or daffodils.
In our slang English language we would say that's it's a JUNGLE out there....
meaning JUST too much chaos.
Enlarge this photo to get the full effect.
This historic JEEP photo is from my archives.
I wish I knew the full story about it.
Photo was taken in Pacifica, California.
Thanks for looking.

Today we are celebrating the letter " I ".
I have been ILL so It was time to dip back INTO my archives.
Our mountains have had a record breaking amount of snow this season.
The runoff from the ICICLES will be amazing.
Does anyone remember using INK like this?
This is one of many types of ICONS around today.
There are religious ICONS too.
I thought this was an INTERESTING one.
For some reason I can't continue to write below this photo.
So I will have to say thank you for looking.

Last week we were taking some photos at the Sacramento City Cemetery.
It wasn't quite Springtime yet in most of the areas.
We did capture an occasional blooming tree though.
I'm so glad we have had a few days of gorgeous weather...
Here comes the weekend and rain, colder temperatures and snow in the mountains again.
That will make the snow count over 565 Inches of the white stuff.
They are saying that the ski resorts will be open until July 4th!!
From drought to too much water!

I missed last week's Letter " G " so I will be combining it with the Letter " H ".
We HAD a GRAND time this weekend.
Our son and His GIRLFRIEND came to visit from Oregon.
HAPPY faces because we were eating delicious Crab Buffet.
We also visited HANGTOWN . This was what Placerville, CA was called during the GOLD RUSH.
It is quite an HISTORIC area.
As you can see...
This was the law of the land in HANGTOWN.
After the " HANGINGS" one might be feeling Angelic.
Or maybe absolutely nothing HAPPENED!
Thanks for looking.

Well today I'm FEELING FLU-ISH......
So its a perfect day for the letter F.
I had to FIND my ( F )otos in my archives.
How about some FEATHERY FLAMINGOS ?
FANTA and other FIZZY drinks in Uzbekistan.
It was almost 10 years ago that we were trying to pack and upgrade our home to move.
How about a FRIDGE in the living room?
And last but certainly not least,
FALL in Nevada.
Thanks for looking.

The days march along and we are at the ABC Wednesday Letter " E ".
Last week I shared EXACTLY what my Hubby looked like after his fall.
After EX-RAYS and a week later,
Here's what he looks like today.
What a lovely black and blue EYE he is EXHIBITING!
It will take a while to get back to normal.
On a different note,
We went to Panda EXPRESS for some supper the other night.
Gift cards and free food can make any dinner EXCITING.
Panda EXPRESS is celebrating the Chinese New Year EVENT.
You can see their logo in the hanging lantern.
Makes me hungry just thinking about it.
Thanks for taking a look and leaving a comment.
Have a great EVENING or morning whereEVER you are.

Monday, January 30, 2017
Well, this has been a most interesting DAY.
Here we are at ABC Wednesday, letter " D ".
The DATE is January 31, 2017.
The DAY started out with my DARLING Hubby DAVE
taking a tumble while wrestling with the shovel and getting a huge knot on his head.
Plus he got very DEEPLY bruised ribs.
All that to say....
What happened on the same DATE 53 years ago, January 31, 1964 ??
It was our wedding DAY.
Lots of years gone by and a few tumbles along the way.
I wouldn't trade those years for anything.
Knots on the noggin and painful ribs we still say
" I love you "
Happy Anniversary and many more years to come.

Here's a new post for ABC Wednesday.
Today's CAPTURE is the letter " C ".
We have a COLLECTION of several antique CLOCKS in our home.
My folks gave us this family CLOCK for an anniversary on year.
There are stains and the face is a bit COCK-EYED but I think it is pretty.
I'm not sure of it's age.
It was in my parents home when I was growing up.
This CLOCK was in my Husbands' parents home.
He believes it is around 100 years old.
I don't remember ever hearing it CHIME .
Another CLOCK that has some age to it is this Tiffany modern style.
As Time marches on I feel like maybe I am an antique too.
Of COURSE, as I always say...enlarge the photos to see the detail....
