During this round of ABCW I have written quite a lot about our many trips around Turkey, we have stayed in 4 and 5*Hotels, A Mountain Hut, (loosely described as a rustic pension) complete with holes in the roof, we discovered this during a scary storm orchestrated by the loudest thunder and fork lightning, which was streaking across the turquoise blue lake beneath us, and stripping the bark off the surrounding fir trees. The exceedingly rude owner, ignored our requests to move to another room, even though rain water was cascading down the walls... His attitude was a shrug and a 'what do you expect, this is a mountain lodge, and yes, it does rain!

A poem by Ken Nesbitt
you're the one for me,
I also love my 3DS
and my Nintendo Wii.
Apple iPod Touch.
I never thought that I would ever
be in love this much.
Mario and Link.
Your names are etched inside my mind
In everlasting ink.
Run, jump, flip, hang,
double-jump and climb.
That's all I want to do
with every second of my time.
Yes it's plain to see
X box X box
will you marry me?
Ken Nesbitt is an American children's poet. he was named Children's Poet laureate in 2013 by The Poetry Foundation. His writings often include imagery of outrageous happenings, before ending on a realistic note. he's a wonderful writer, so I urge you to Google him and read some of his stuff, well worth a read !
My sincere thanks to our eXuberant Denise for devising ABCW and also to Roger for his eXactitude in administrating ABCW
Without these two eXceptional people and the band of eXcellent helpers. ABCW would not be here so to quote Roger "Thank you for all you do".
