    I love the May apples! Wish we had a larger alphabet!

    Actually, Montucky, I’m kind of glad we only have 26 letters. I don’t think I could have gone on much longer. And it’s a good thing I had a stockpile of 10,000 photos from 2008, or I would never have been able to do it.

    It was a great creative activity though. The rhyme was rather fun to do, but putting it together took a lot of time.

    These are just a perfect combination of clever, delightful, interesting and fun. The contrast of pictures is wonderful, too. And so are the words, which boost the pictures. Yep, tasty joy for sure!

    The weiner is such a winner (weiner) and the exercycle—what in the world? Did you just stumble upon that one? What a great use for an old, out-of-date gadget.

    When can I get a copy of your A-Z book??? I just had an epiphany!!! These are lovely rhymes and as I read, I pictured the Edward Gorey book! I fell into the rhythm of the rhymes and found my mind wandering to darker images…

    You are amazing!
