Letter "O" -- Weekend Roundup and Street/Reflections

Note my "booted foot!!!"  

I fell last Friday and broke, of all body parts, my right foot big toe.  Foot doctor says to wear it for eight weeks and hope the break will grow back together.

(A) Starts with the Letter "O":   Orange Tree starts with "O".   It's time for an update.  My much posted Orange Tree froze in our unusual February winter storm and a Blanket Over it wasn't enough help.  

I am thinking of a pretty blooming cherry tree to replace it but Mrs. Jim thinks that maybe our winters aren't long enough and cold enough for cherries. It will be replaced with a small tree again.

(B) "Over" (Tom's Choice):   Penguins all Over.  I used this picture in my Day 8 NaPoWriMo "poem", at .  

(C) A Favorite:   Left Over Mac 'n Cheese.  This day I was almost Out of Luck, Only Five Pieces of macaroni were left for me.   

Like many Other Grandparents we keep a supply of Mac 'n Cheese for our youngest 1granddaughter who lives within walking distance from us.   Right now I have a small bowl of Left Over Mac in our refrigerator. 

(D) Street/Reflections:   "Family Feud" score board,  Reflected on the coffee table.  To win $2000 today's contestant winning team needed at least 200 points, they ended up with only 153. 

Note my "booted foot!!!"  I fell and broke, of all body parts, my right foot big toe.  Foot doctor says to wear it for eight weeks and hope the break will grow back together.  

(E) A Lagniappe:   A nice Tea for Old Folk had these goodies for eating along with our tea.  We were just about to sample the chocolate puff cookies when we had to leave for a tour of the place.

Bonus Questions: 
(1)  Tell about any dealings you have had with an Afternoon 
Tea  When we are on a cruise, most cruise ships have Afternoon Tea at about 3:00PM for an hour, either in a dining room or large lounge.  I like the lounge high looking out over the bow or the aft on showing contrails of water being kicked up by the propellers.  
Also, our younger daughter, KP likes Hotel Afternoon Tea, especially the hotels in London. 

(2) What is your favorite Word starting with "O"?  Mine today will be  "Often", because unlike many other words, it only has one definition.  And also because it means things are happening.     

(3) Anything else you were reminded of here that you would like to tell about?
