Worth the Drive

It's a long drive across the desert...

...but worth every mile!!!

All in the Family

We welcomed a new grandson this week, my daughter's third son. It should really be no surprise that there would be photos taken of this precious new baby, lots of them, since there seems to be a genetic predisposition to photography in my family - from my grandfather on down to my daughter. The only real surprise is that it's the baby's 5 year old brother taking the photos this time. And so another family tradition is carried on.

X is for Exit

Ahhhh...another Alphabe-Thursday...and this week's letter is X.

X is for eXit...which is what I'm sad to say I'll be making gracefully from Alphabe-Thursday for now.

Partly because we're eXpecting a new grandbaby in the next couple weeks and I just might be eXceptionally busy helping out....

...but also because I'm eXhausted from trying to keep up with my blog and visiting everyone else's blogs while keeping up with real life too (oh yes, I actually have one)....

You've all been eXceptionally kind with your visits and comments, and I'll miss you for sure. I'll still be around, so do stop by from time to time...Jake and Albert will be watching and waiting for you.

And keep up the eXtraordinary work you've been doing on your own blogs. Don't forget to stop by Mrs. Jenny's to see some fine eXamples of Alphabe-Thursday.

Terry-fying Halloween

Tomorrow is the big day. Halloween. I've never liked dressing up for Halloween, even when I was a wee whippersnapper. But in the past few years we've had more fun with our sweet animals...and they are so obliging...

I'm almost certain that someone coming across this will find it offensive. Please don't- it's really not intended to be. Just take a deep breath and realize that with a last name like Terry and with two terrier boys, sometimes we just can't help ourselves. So hopefully you'll laugh along with us. We all could use a little more levity in our lives.

The Scottish terrierists and the time bomb with the Hare trigger hope you have a simply Terry-fying Halloween!

Oh, Mom, really? Do we have to do this AGAIN?! I'm so embarrassed.

Winter Comes Early

Since W is not used in the Spanish alphabet (except in words that are used in their English form, such as "web"), I'm taking a breather from my usual  photo tour of Chilean Patagonia for Alphabe-Thursday. Instead you get a quick glimpse of what we got yesterday...the first taste of WINTER!

Have a great week, and be sure to wing your way over to Mrs. Jenny's and see what the other Alphabetarians have waiting for you.

Just Like That...

This past week was in the 70s and sunny...

...the clouds moved in...

...and then, this morning...

Visual Void...

It's Alphabe-Thursday time again. This week you might expect to venture vast distances in our study of the letter V. Normally I'd be taking you on a little virtual vacation to Patagonian Chile, but on Monday I hit the road, traveling west across the desert from Utah to California where I'm visiting my daughter and her family for a few days. It's not truly a vacation, but in the spirit of veracity, my visit is in preparation for my newest grandchild, due to arrive in a few weeks.  It's an exciting time, but as for this post, sorry; it's a visual void with respect to Patagonia. Just sit back and enjoy the desert scenery. I'll be back with more from Patagonia next week.

 Don't forget to visit Mrs. Jenny's to view the various entries of the other Alphabetarians.
