~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.24 -- "X" is for ...
(1) Starts with X: X's are hard to find. I did do some Flash writing on my other blog, my main character was named 'Xentor". I actually quit before I hardly started, here are some of those, click. This opportunity was available only on certain of Jenny's Saturday Centus days. 100 word posts with certain other restrictions were . (Saturday Centus posts) About a year ago Jenny became ill and has almost stopped blogging.
Mrs. Jim and I shared chicken 'fajitas for one.' Sorry no picture. Berryhill's is famed for its fish tacos. My say, "they are good but too messy." To work around that I order them "dry" with the fish sauce on the side. That works. And I can be judicious with the sauce's application.
Sixteen of our twenty-four were present. I noted that the fifteen of them that were here, all were my descendants, spouses of one, or steadily following one.
The nine others were accounted for; four were here in Texas having other commitments, two are in California/Arizona, two in Alaska, and one in Washington, D.C.
Some more pictures: Our oldest granddaughter's due date is less than a couple of weeks away. She will add one more girl to our two girl "Greats" list. One boy, JP (link).
(3) Insect: June Bug. The little brown beetle who flies the night away, looking for a light. When, and if, it finds the light it spends the rest of the night worshipping that light. And then before daylight our June Bug dies.
Several years back I blogged a feature, "June Bug of the Week." I didn't exactly give it that name. I had a running joke with Rachel that what she called a June Bug was actually not a June Bug as June Bugs are supposed to be brown. You will notice that NONE of these is a real June Bug.

At right is one of my "Xentor" favorites. A few others may be seen here.
