Well, X was a very though one. I was not going to do X until my mom suggested I look at my ABC books I had as a child.

Several of the ABC and word books I had as a child.

While Little Golden books may not be the greatest literature  I had a lot as a child and they were some of my favorite books.  The red Word book in the back and the Little Golden Picture Dictionary were my favorite. I enjoyed looking at the books and the pictures.

One of my childhood favorites.
X is for Xmas, X-ray and Xylophone

One of my childhood favorites, I enjoyed going looking at the pages of the Picture dictionary and naming all the pictures. Guess I’ve always been a bit of a nerd.

This one has a rhyme for each letter of the Alphabet.

My World Tuesday: Welcome to the 40 Acres

I’m back after taking a break for the Christmas Holiday last week.  Currently, my husband and I live in Florida but are originally from Texas. I thought it would be fun to show the part of the world where I lived for many years.  Today’s post features a quick tour of my Alma Mater, Hardin-Simmons. Hardin-Simmons University is located in Abilene, Texas. So, sit back and enjoy a visit to the 40 Acres.

Sounds of the Season IV

Found this one thanks to a suggestion from a reader. The song is Joy by Apollo 100. It is their take on Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.

I had never heard of Apollo 100 but I liked the song.  According to Wikipedia they were a short-lived instrumental group from Britian founded by arranger Tom Parker.  Joy was their first single and has been featured in several movies.
