— My Alphabe-Thursday, Wagons and White — "W" — Things in a Row — Two Questions —
"W" is for Wagon. This picture of me sitting in the old Radio Flyer (I think that is what it is) has been my Blogger profile picture for quite a while now. There were a few others earlier but this one I like and so I will keep it. I still have me with the old Ford in the Canadian Yukon Territory for my facebook picture though.
The picture was taken at the The Antique Rose Emporium at Brenham, Texas. It is one of many wagons there to be used by customer to haul their plant selections up to the registers for check out.
Next we have "W" is for White showing in some of my pictures that you have not seen yet. This display is down the street from our house. I like the White rocks lining the flower bed. This month the bed is decorated for Halloween.
On the left is another house, White, down the street from us. They do not have any grass in the front yard, only these plants. Most are flowering plants and many are wild flowers.
On the right are two White bags of golf balls that our son, Mike, gave us. He finds a lot of these while playing. They are balls that others have lost. Also some are balls that he no longer plays with as he has hit them too many times.
The White truck above makes grocery store deliveries on Karen and Billy's street. The delivery charges are very reasonable. And then our White dog, Katrin, has had a shampoo, nail job, and a haircut at the groomers. Can you see the Halloween decorations on the ear ribbons? She has been "outside" and now is wanting in.
In the White sack are Adi's ashes back from the crematorium. The White angel beside the bag has made some rounds. It once helped remind our dying friend, Katrin's 'mother', that the Lord had angels watching over her bed.
The White sign is at a local golf course. I did not see any snakes but did see a couple of alligators over there.
We saw the lady walking with the White flowered basket on her head walking alongside the highway in Guatemala. I don't have the slightest idea who she was, where she came from, or where she was going.
Below is our granddaughter, KP, helping us to find the Bloomsberry Central Baptist Church in London this Sunday. She had the map (White) and was really a big help.

Now for my Thursday Two Questions.
I really enjoyed your responses to my Velocipede post of last week
1. Do you have a Wagon in your garage, yard, or in the house someplace to talk about? Are there any stories about a Wagon in your life that you'd like to tell about ?
2. What can you tell us about White around you?.
2. I'm in my office to there are white blinds on the windows, lots of copy paper, many envelopes and other things that need my attention. There are lots of books in the bookcase that have white covers like Mexico the PICYA Yachting Yearbook for 2012, Hide, and Hypnotic Realities to name a few.
Bonus Question: Wisdom is my favorite 'W' word for today.
Have a 'W'onderful day Jim. :)
Your photos are excellent and your blog header is delightful ~ Very creative blog ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^
my favorite W word is wonderful - a very good-sounding word. have a great day.
My favourite 'W' word is wise.
White - The majority of the rooms in our condo are painted white. I cannot wait till we buy this place and give it some COLOR.
I recently passed the Radio Flyer office in Chicago and they have a HUGE wagon out front.
Always a pleasure to visit.
White is my favorite color for sheets, curtains, towels... I have lots of white in my house.
My favorite "W" word is probably Write!
White...my husband is white - in color too. We have white jokes all the time, as we do Asian jokes. LOL. In my garden, paper whites are coming up, and so are my white/ pink roses.
We have white alyssum in our garden! And I love clean white sheets.
I am still mourning the loss of our Precious girl. It has been two years now, and the thought of her still brings tears to my eyes.
White around me...there's a white lined notebook on the desk in front of me with tomorrow's list of things to do / no fun here, so thank goodness for YOUR post :)
What's white around me? Hmm, ok that's an easy one my Macbook is white and so are my computer speakers. Easy breezy, thank-you peasy!
most blogs that i see has white backgrounds and i have to say i prefer the white than the black backgrounds. if not white, light colors will be soothing to the eyes.
for now, my favorite "W" word will be "Weasel". it is a name given to Arya, one of the main characters in the book Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings. she is an interesting girl.
my google blog seems hacked so if you'd like to visit me here, i would be most glad.
Great pics - I like the Halloween items (doesn't happen like that here in Spain!)and Katrin looks so beautiful!
Been very busy completing my latest novel, a crime thriller (kept me up at nights. Couldn't put it down!!). Followed by a road trip through N Switzerland, the Dolomites, Slovenia & the length of Croatia. (I feel inspiration for another novel coming on!)
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend and look forward to *seeing* you again!
Stopping by from Alphabe-Thursday
We also used the wagon when going to the fair or on a picnic. I love that wagon but have no picture of it or know where it is as it belonged to my X now..
Hope you get this before you leave! You'll really like Dubrovnik (pity about the weather!). It was my second visit and both times I spent a bit of time in the various churches listening to sung mass. The first time we walked around the city walls which was interesting - this time we didn't have the time unfortunately. Do try to view the city from above - we had a marvellous view looking down from an upper road en route for the airport.
Look forward to hearing all about your trip! Bon voyage et bon weekend!
2) I see my whiteboard filled with words every day. When it is clean, I feel relief but at the same time, I am ready to fill it with more action items. :-)
And the wagons!
I always try to find antique rose varieties as memorial gifts for friends that have green thumbs!
And I always try to pull a wagon whenever possible!
You need to 'fly'down the hill in that wagon you're sitting on, Jim!
Hope your trip is going swell! Or went swell.
What a surprise! ha!
