ABC Wednesday

The letter this week is the mysterious  X

X is the 'place that marks the spot' on any Treasure Map that happens to come into your possession.



As well as Mr. Bean, Treasure Maps are used by anyone who wants to
remind themselves where they dug and buried that dang treasure


Like Pirates


and Old Prospectors


and  Dogs,



 - although I understand they have no place to carry treasure maps marked with an X and so they carry the secret of the Treasure around in their noses........


For other takes on the Letter X visit here at ABC Wednesday, with thanks to Mrs. Nesbitt
 and her happy and helpful crew.

Hoping you all find the Treasures you are hunting for in the Grand New Year.

Very clever take on the letter X. It would be fun to have a real treasure map. I wonder what we would find.

My 'X' is HERE

That dog has clearly found something - maybe a bone starting with an x?

Carver said...

I went with X marks the spot too but I didn't do anything as creative as your post. I enjoyed this so much.

X is difficult, so the map works for me.

I love a mystery! However, when traveling I rarely fill the position of navigator.

Hope your 2011 life map is full of adventure.

How clever of you to use a treasure map, where X marks the spot. I love the dog picture and your eXplanation has to where he keeps his map. LOL..

Wanda said...

I really love your take on "X"... I really had to stretch this time...

Anna said...

A treasure hunt - oh what fun - I wonder why it is X that marks that spot rather than any other letter of the alphabet : ) Wishing you a most happy New Year.

Hahahaha! I love that last picture! I think all that dog has up his nose is sand! LOL!

Fun post!

I'd be afraid to bury anything I needed back - could never remember where it was, even with an X. :) Love the digging dog shot. Happy New Year!
