ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our EIGHTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "R".
RIO GRANDE RIVER BY THE ROADSIDE
There seems to be a lot of R's in where I live and my daily life! I live in Rio Rancho, NM.
Which is not too far from the Rio Grande river.
The state bird is the road runner.
Whether you live in the greater south west area or not, I would contend that it is not hard to find rocks of any kind.
Especially RED ROCKS!
REAPING THE HARVEST
This is what I reaped last fall from my Braeburn apple tree. They were all delicious and I'm proud to say that they were bountiful and pesticide free! This was one of three baskets.
Sigh...and I'm feeling a need for some rather obscure R words too-such as, rock-ribbed. Which means 1) rockbound 2) firm and uncompromising in one's views. Now you can step out today and refer to your favorite hard headed person in your life as being rock-ribbed!
And, you know the Roebuck in Sears Roebuck? That's a male roe deer.
Here's a doozy: roistering.
Do you know what it means?
So, all you ABCers-go forth and be good roisterer's!!
I think I'm getting rather rambunctious...
