Fabulous and Fearless in Frankfurter

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 TENTH 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, "F".


A fearful face if there ever was one! Look carefully, It's a water fountain. I'd like that in my yard, please!


In the past, we used to call them 'waiters'. I think 'food expediters' never really caught on though-it was intended to be a genderless reference to those that served us in restaurants. Although, I will admit to never, ever, seeing one dressed like this one in any of the eating establishments I've been to!


Yes, believe it or not, this is supposed to be an operational fire hydrant! I won't say what small town this is in, but I sure hope they don't have any fires! Yikes!


A part of the public art collection in Albuquerque-these fractals are on the sidewalks and go easily unnoticed. They are sprinkled here and there. You'll only notice them if you look down while you are walking (I'm surprised I don't' run in to things more often as I do tend to look down to see if there is anything interesting to look at). The red symbol is the state symbol-it's called the Zia symbol-which is on our state flag. The Zia symbol, not the fractal!  : )

Great variety of Fs for the day! And I definitely would prefer not to have to use water from that one!!! Hope your week is going well, Paula!! Enjoy!

Love the fractals. Not so much the fire hydrant.

I'd like that face fountain in my yard too. All good shots and one of my favorites for some reason is the old fire hydrant. Carver, ABC Wednesday Team

Paula, you are so creative. I love your eclectic choice of photos and words. Oh my, I hope they don't need that fire hydrant.
the fractals are fascinating.

Always fun to pop by, Paula. Great job on the intro, by the way. I sure wish I had a food facilitator in my house! Oh yeah...it's called the microwave! lol Have a fun week,

Very interesting fractals. I need to look down more often, I think!

I always thought the food expediter was one of the people that actually carried the food out to the table from the kitchen. The waiter or waitress, sometimes called a waitron, a genderless moniker, was the one that took the order and gives you the bill.

That hydrant looks like it needs a wire brush and a paint job after they open it up and let it run a while to clean out the rust!

"F" already! I'm sorry I haven't stopped by in a while, I missed the first part of the alphabet on this round. My loss.
