~~ Friday’s Hunt v.4.24 -- "X" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of December 15th
1. Starts with "X"; 2. craft; and 3. growing

1. Starts with "X": "XTBD", if ever.  It should be "XMAS" but the rest of post isn't very '"X"mas-sy'.

2. Craft:  
You might think this was in the farm room but these toys were at Dad's nursing home. We had stopped in to tell him goodbye. That was in August, 2006 (link).  Dad died in February, 2007, at age 97. 

Aren't those nice trucks? The Red Hat ladies and the Construction Guys (they gave Dad his hard hat)(July 24 posting) made toys for a fundraiser.

The residents helped too. The day before we had watched one of the men residents painting the trucks and the benches. He was doing a good job, I didn't know they would turn out this nice.

3. Growing
To the south of the corn crib was where Mom had her garden.  It was large, about an acre including the potato patch.

Now Grass and Weeds are Growing where the precious garden once was.  I wrote a 'poem' about this in my other blog yesterday.  (You can read it by clicking here. )

4.  A bit of Lagniappe: Still not saying much about this picture.  If I don't get a better "X" word, we will for sure have "X marks the spot." The dart board to which the balloons are attached is also a craft work of sorts.   In the meantime you can be guessing what this picture is all about.
