Weekend Roundup -- 11-18 (for letter "K")

The 11th issue of Weekend Roundup for this year... 
The week's prompts:

(1) Starts with "K"; (2) A Favorite; (3) Kids; and (4) Lagniappe 
(1) Starts with "K": Kolaches starts with "K".  Our daughter bought us this pictured above Kolache, it is a Sausage and Cheese Kolache left over from some more that she and KP brought.  Since it was a leftover, I modified it by adding half a hard fried egg.  Below are a 'work in progress' and an 'almost finished eating' pictures. [click on any picture to see it in larger sizes, one or two clicks]


2) A Favorite: This is our lemon tree.  It could be a lime tree, we've not had one piece of fruit from it before so we aren't sure what it is.  It blooms in the spring but doesn't set on fruit.  A rain we had beat off a lot of the blossoms, you can see some of the fallen pieces below the tree in the first picture.

We don't see any bees.  Our long term U.S. Senator killed a bill for the Federal Government to spend money trying to figure out why the bees are declining drastically.  I don't think he believes in Climate Change either.

(3) Kids: This shamrock was drawn and painted by KP, our youngest granddaughter.  She says it is a four leaf clover but aren't they the same?  Dunno for sure but I always thought so.

(4) LagniappeKaiser starts with "K".  Manufacture of Kaiser-Frazer cars began after WWII in 1946.  "The company was founded on July 25, 1945 and in 1946 K-F displayed prototypes of their two new cars at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. The Kaiser was of an advanced front wheel drive design while the Frazer was an upscale conventional rear wheel drive car... " Wikiepedia, link

"By the end of 1946, over 11,000 cars (total Kaiser and Frazer) went out to dealers and distributors; many of them sold to retail owners... (in) 1948, the 300,000th car came off the production line.  In 1950, Kaiser-Frazer began production of a compact car, the Henry J and ended production of the Frazer automobile... In 1952 and 1953 Kaiser-Frazer provided Sears Roebuck & Co. with Allstate-branded automobiles that Sears sold through selected Sears Auto Centers... " Wikipedia, Kaiser Motors, link

Kaiser automobile production stopped in 1955, only 210 '55 Kaisers were produced for domestic consumption. Collectible Classic: 1951-55 Kaiser

...Jim, sorry about the screw up! I always expand my vocabulary when I visit my blog, Kolaches are new to me. Your lemon tree reminds me of the Peter, Paul and Mary tune. I never try to correct our five-year-old granddaughter, she knows everything! I occasionally see Kaiser-Frazer cars at shows, but I don't know much about them. A Henry J was a show I went to last year. Enjoy your week.
Had to look up that sandwich. I'd give it a try. Very different.

Have a fabulous day, Jim. :)
I had never heard of a kolache before. I had to look it up. I see that they are traditionally from the Czech Republic, where they are filled with fruit, but that in Texas in particular, they are popular with sausages in them. Very interesting. I like your citrus tree. I had several dwarf citrus trees in Iowa but I had to leave them when I moved back to Canada because you can't bring plants over the border. I would put them out in their pots on the patio in summer and bring them inside for winter. I have a very small orange tree here, that I do the same thing with. The shamrock is just a regular 3-leaved clover, and is a traditional Irish symbol and apparently Saint Patrick used the plant as a metaphor for the holy trinity. The 4-leaf clover is exactly what it says - a clover with 4 leaves - but it's not a shamrock. :)
Well Kim you wil have to tell your youngest granddaughter - Not to be confused with four-leaf clover. A shamrock.
A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. ove the car in this post as wel as the last post. Not to be confused with four-leaf clover. A shamrock.
