~~ Friday’s Hunt v.4.23 -- "W" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of December 8th:  
1. Starts with W;  2. Dense; and 3. Texture

1. Starts with "W": Guess today it has to be "Weather"!!  That's because we had SNOW !!! 





 
2. Dense:  Our Fog the other day was very dense.  I caught this Spider Web Picture walking with our school grandkid through the Fog.

3. Texture:  This German Christmas stollen that Mrs. Jim found at our World Market has a nice texture with raisins breaking up the fun.

Didn't she cut it in a funny Way?

4.  A bit of Lagniappe

"W" is also for What.

Now, What is this?

I'll tell the answer soon.

Maybe "X"?

Goodbye ~~ Friday’s Hunt v.4.22 -- "V" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of December 1st:
1. Starts with V; 2. Wood; and 3.Festive

Saying "Goodbye", us on ship on the  left, and
our new Russian friends left behind in Moscow, right.
 
1. Starts with "V":  "Voyage" starts with "V".  My favorite River Voyage was our Fall 2006 river passage from Moscow to St. Petersburg.  That all took 12 lovely days, we were the last Viking Line boat to make the trip before Spring.  Our ship would soon be frozen in the water at the riverside docks in St. Petersburg.
The above pictures were shown here.  Below, from the trip summary post here.
"Russia" on my blog search
 
 
 
 


 
 


2. Wood:  Kizhi was a United Nations Heritage site with it's many "Wooden" churches and buildings.  Here we had self guided tours with each major building having a guide to explain things.  Other smaller places had signs which told us what we were seeing.  Built on a small island, we walked from one end to the other. [Be sure to click on the pictures for larger sized viewing -- Back button will/should return you here.]
 









3. Festive:  Mrs. Jim's Brother, Danny, and SIL, Winetta visited us for the "Thanksgiving week".  The Jim Bunch ate a lot.  And did sightseeing.

~~ Friday’s Hunt v.4.21 -- "U" is for ...


Friday's Hunt for the week of November 24th:    1. Starts with U;  2. mosaic/collage; and  3. “I ate this”


Mrs. Jim's Brother and Sister-in-law visited us over the Thanksgiving Holidays.  Both Mrs. Jim and her brother are LSU Alumni.

1. Starts with "U":
"U" is for "Uruguay", there on Mrs. Jim's Birthday, January 1, 2017




"U" is for "Under" -- "Under the 'balloon drop'".  What do people do underneath a balloon drop anyway?

This was New Year's Eve, 2016.  We were on our trip from Los Angels down to the bottom of the world, around Cape Horn and back up to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  We stopped at the Falklands (amongst other lots of other places) on the way back up.

What do they do at the drop?  First, they wait and wait.  Then they look up or down on the balloons falling.  Lastly, they stomp all the balloons until all are broken and the floor is ready for dancing.  A few will save a couple to take home to show the kids.

2. mosaic/collage
I think this would make a beautiful Mosaic.  I might try it. 


This picture was part of the decorations on our cruise walls.  It was for sale.

If you don't like this then try the Breakfast Dish below or the half eaten Texas Cinnamon Apple Fritter I picked up this morning.  I am not particular.  I hope our 'Teacher' isn't.

3. “I ate this”:  Take your pick, either the "Breakfast dish that Mrs. Jim made for me" or the "Texas Cinnamon Apple Fritter" that I bought this morning.
