The Letter "X" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The 50th issue of Weekend Roundup for this year...
(THE TWENTY-FOURTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "X" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with the Letter "X" : (B) A Favorite;
(C) Contains the letter "X" for '"W"ater' (Tom's choice); and (D) Reflections. 
_ _ _ _ 


(A) Starts with the Letter "X": That would be "Xmas".  Very likely this will be our Christmas Picture.  (Remember, we are on Sabbatical.)





Letter "X" in eXtreme:  an eXtreme lot of fruit.



(B) A Favorite:  Shrimp Coctail is one of my FAVORITE foods.  Fish Stew is a close runner up.  My delicious dish here was full of Shrimp, Scallop, Mussels, (Moule), Octopus,  and pieces of Fish.  Also for this meal my salad was smothered with Anchovies.



(C) Contains the letter "X":  Christmas eXpress. 



(D) Reflections:  The scene is of a distant lighted highway along the coast of Kator,  Oman.  The brightest area on the left is from a small shopping center.  You can see the WATER REFLECTIONS better from viewing a larger size.  For that click on the picture once and perhaps again for larger still.

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you'd like):

1. What will your Christmas decorations be?    I They will be miserly as we are doing Sabatically things.  So far we have bells and holly on the door. We might add outside reindeer and an artificial tree inside.

2. How do you feel about Shrimp?   Like I said above, they are one of my favorite foods. 

Bonus Questions:


1. What is your favorite "Xword?  "Expert", i like to be the best.  

2.  What has your experience been with trsins?    My first train ride was when I was inducted into the army.  Since then we have used them some while traveling in Europe.
