X is for...

 


The only word I could come up with for X is for... words for ABC Wednesday were the above ones.

XTRA! EXTRA!
I was going to use a newspaper type article but what to say? That Rhett and I made if safely back from our 6 Flags trip. The calves of my legs were stiff and sore from all the walking and hill climbing we did. My lips were sunburned because I forgot to pack anything for them, but luckily a friend had some Carmex along with her so I was thankful for Carol for having it. I shuffled around like Tim Conway did on the "Carol Burnett Show" as the old man the next couple of days.

The XTRA! XTRA! story came in the form of a teenager being decapitated on a ride at 6 Flags the day after we left! I was thankful this did not happen while we were there. Rhett would have had nightmares for sure. I have heard differing stories about this tragedy such as he went back for his hat and was hit in the head by someone's legs with a force so strong it knocked his head off. Then I heard he was trying to grab onto someone ass the ride began. I did not watch the news this weekend nor read the paper so I cannot offer a link. Sorry. Just please when you go to places such as this amusement park, be XTRA careful.

 


I remembered we have this printing place called Xpress Printing so Rhett and I stopped yesterday evening so I could take this photo. I have never used them. I started to buy a pack of Extra gum and photograph it, but figured this would suffice and I didn't want to go to the extremes as I usually do.

May you have an X-tra special, xtraoridinary day today. Be sure to read my previous post entitled "A Bat's Tale". If you would like to participate in ABC Wednesday X is for..., please go to the following...
