Hrandom

OK, I know that HRANDOM is not really a word. But it's Alphabe-Thursday time again and this week we honor the letter H. Since I've been doing an A-Z tour of Chilean Patagonia this go-round, I was having a hard time coming up with an H theme. One of my favorite words in Spanish is HERMOSA, which means beautiful, and it certainly applies to pretty much anything you might see in Patagonia. But the photos I picked this week are pretty random...trying not to pick ones that might fit into my other A-Z themes so I don't repeat...you know, it's so complicated...heehee.

Anyway. I digress. 

In Spanish, the letter H is silent, so when you hear someone say "Ola" (hello) to you, it's actually spelled HOLA. Since the H is silent, I decided to just plop it in front of RANDOM, and there you go, a new word was born...tadaaa....HRANDOM. 

So, hope you enjoy my little hrandom smattering of photos for this week. 



















Off you go, now, to see what the other Alphabetarians have in their hoppers for the letter H by clicking HERE to get to Mrs. Jenny's.

Beautiful photos ! In French the H is also silent, that's why it sounds so funny when Frenchs speak English ! Hour becomes our and Hunger unger, lol !

You must work for National Geographic with photos like yours! I love them all but am drawn to the fence going up the mountain. xo Jenny

Wanda said...

These are amazing shots--the light almost sparkles. I especially liked the one of the rusty, aged metal.

BTW, I think Miss Jenny is going to be proud of the "hrandomness" you exhibit in this post!

Judie said...

Pondside said...

You could get in BIG trouble from Miss Jenny for making up words. Of course, I wish I'd thought of it!...and you'll probably get an A+ for those wonderful photos!

Annesphamily said...

Lovely photos and very clever on the word play!

Jenny said...

I could look at these photos every week. Forever.

Love this word!

Silent H's are always fun to be around.

So are silent Mother-in-laws.

Thanks for a happy link for the letter 'H'.
