ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. Our Host, Mrs. Nesbitt hails from Great Britain. We started with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. We are now in our second year, round 4! This week's letter is, "S".
Each 'slab' of Spam has a Haiku written on it
Glistens, pink, bejeweled
Nearly 2 X 4 inch slab
A GEM of a meat!
Please hold your disdain
Had YOU grown up eating it
You'd feel differently.
One bite transports me
Childhood dreams awake in me
How do I love Spam?
Boiled, fried, broiled, baked in a stew
Much, so much to do!
(Please do not reprint any of this without my permission or I shall have to force feed you a can of Spam!)
Shaved Ice-a Hawaiian treat. The ice is shaved with a large circular blade. Not to be confused with a Snow Cone!!!
Shrimp Plant (that's what we call this in Hawaii. I'm sure it goes by other names, but I'm not aware of them!). Look closely at the yellow bloom; there are little white things sticking out between the petals. THAT'S the part that looks like a shrimp. Click on the image to get a larger view.
Really. This was in my sister's neighbor's yard. The bottle of water is to put weight on a branch to train it to grow in a certain direction. Over time, 'sludge' grew in the bottle of water. Well, I'm sure it's some sort of fungus, but to me, it looks like sludge!
This is the world famous spiral staircase in the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's famous because engineers, architects and carpenters are STUMPED as to how this staircase can bear the weight load. For the sake of preservation, they no longer let folks walk up this staircase.
I have a lot of "S's", don't I?
