I think I've hit one of those cultural black holes with the alphabet game - haven't a clue what these letters mean. But lovely post, as ever.

Deb Robson

Freyalyn, my parents (like many others) kept the kids busy in the back seat of the car (before portable DVD players, iPods, and the like) with a game where we had to find all the letters of the alphabet on signs that we passed. Q, X, Y, and Z were notoriously hard to find. Js were also a challenge!In our family, we had to find them IN ORDER.So that Q on the sign might have been useful if wed recently located P. X, Y, Z would have finished the game if wed just scored W. (License plates ended up being useful resources for odd letters.)


They also kept us occupied (and prevented are we there yet?) by teaching us to read maps, navigate possible routes, and research potential evening stopping places (in the AAA books).

Thank you - I'm happy now!

Deborah Robson

Happy is good! Me, I got home safely. Hoping to have time to write more posts--even this morning, unless something unexpected and needing immediate attention happens.

This looks like such a lovely trip - roadwork notwithstanding!
