Xray

Wow. We're down to the last three a-z posts and I sure hope you're all doing better than me. I haven't made it around to nearly as many peeps as I wanted even though I wrote nearly ALL my posts in advance. It was hard responding to everyone's comments, checking out the participants, AND keeping in touch with all the regular blogs I follow! As of today I'll have made it round to 214 blogs on the list, which isn't too bad but I was really hoping to do better. If I haven't made it to yours my apologies.

Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programming for the month, The Phonetic Alphabet...

In the phonetic alphabet, Xray represents the letter X. I think we all know what an xray is so I won't bore anyone with the definition. Instead, I'll offer an interesting picture I found:

  4. Great photo and choice of word, Marcy. I have taken thousands of radiographs (x-rays) in my former profession of dental hygiene. Glad that's over! Take care~

  5. That photo is freaky cool! I hear you...I haven't made it to as many blogs as I wanted either but did better than last year so that is good. :-) Have a great weekend!

  6. There is a reason why it's called a challenge, huh? I think you've done great. That pix is awesome and I'll make sure and show my son when he gets home from school. Thx.

  7. You've done a wonderful job. I don't think I would have gotten to any other blogs at all if I hadn't done some posts in advance. Doing each one the day of would have just made me insane-er lol!!!

    That needlefish pic is weirdly cool.

    1. Last year I hardly had any scheduled in advance but strangely it seems more challenging this year - maybe because of all the participants.

  8. Freaky!
    Don't feel bad. As a host, I've only made it to about 250 new blogs because I always visit my blogger buddies first. And they account for most of the 150 I visit a day. (And no, I will not be maintaining that pace in May!)

    1. Yeah, me neither - in fact, I may even take a few days off!

  9. Neat picture of the needlefish. I love the whole phonetic alphabet concept you're using for the A-Z challenge. Very clever. Whew! Almost done. I had some silly delusion of trying to visit every blog. Pffft. Not even close. Oh well. It has, indeed, been a challenge.

    1. I thought it would be fun and relatively easy since the words were already chosen, leaving me to decide how to use them :)

  10. X-ray is one of the few X words actually pronounced with and Z instead of a Z.

    I'm a new follower via the A to Z. Better late than never!

  11. Love the photo. Way better than one of my broken arm - which is what I wrote about today. Man! I wish I had a copy of that x-ray!!
