I’m sorry to read in the comments that several of you are also have teething troubles, you have my complete sympathy. I have to go back to the periodontist on Tuesday to have my bite corrected. This will mean 3 hours in the chair having my teeth ground into alignment, followed by a hefty bill. I can hardly wait. :-(
A while ago, Gill, at http://thatbritishwoman.blogspot.com/ challenged me to come up with 10 things I love beginning with the letter "A," so here we go, and in no particular order:
- ANTARCTICA, I have a fascination with the place, and love reading about the early exploration of this icy continent by such men as Shackleton, Scott, and Amundson.
- APPLE CRUMBLE, it’s one of my favorite puddings (desserts), especially when smothered in custard.
- ANIMALS, especially my three cats. And I love elephants, even though I don’t have one around the place. We have a big yard, but not that big! But I was lucky enough to see elephants in the wild, on a trip to Kenya many moons ago.
- ALPHABET, I love words, but then they are my stock and trade. I’m one of those people who picks up the dictionary to check a spelling or a definition and gets distracted by other words.
- ARIZONA, I love the Grand Canyon, and have seen it twice. My step-daughter got married there.
- ANNIE PROULX, I love all her books, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be "That Old Ace in the Hole."
- AFTERNOONS, I’m not a morning person, even though I get up early most days.
- ALCOHOL, especially wine, and particularly cabernet sauvignon.
- THE ADRIATIC SEA, I love the Greek Islands, and the sea that surrounds them is so beautiful and clear.
- AMAZON, because I love books and reading.
I’ve changed the rules a bit as not everyone wants to play along with these meme games.
- If you would like me to assign you a letter, let me know in your comment on this blog.
- Write about ten things you love that begin with said letter.
- Post the list on your blog, and invite your readers to play along.
Toodle pip for now.
Endurance, crushed by the ice pack.
