Alphabe-Thursday "V"

Good morning class! We're going to be working with an very venerable letter this week:
But before we do, I have two important announcements.

1. I used letter "E" this week to select the 1, 2 and 3 places for this meme. The way I've been doing this is telling Mr. Jenny how many entries there are and asking him to tell me three numbers. Spot 1 goes to: Anna's Adornments Spot 2 goes to: House Revival. Spot 3 goes to: Viki's Place. I notified you on each of your posts that I would link you this week. If you have any questions, let me know! Congratulations!

ACCCCCKKKKK!!!! I am having major internet issues. It is going up and down and I couldn't link you all into spots 1, 2 and 3. You were linked into spots 6, 7 and 8. Next week I will get you into the first three spots. I'm sorry your prize isn't much of a prize this week.

2. When we are done with the Letter Z, which will be July 15, I was going to do a 7 week "Summer School" using the colors of the rainbow. And then start again at Letter A. A lot of you have been asking about this and these are my thoughts!

Now, moving onto the regular A-T info...

So that we can distribute comments a bit more evenly, if your first name starts with the letters A - L please start reading the odd posts first starting with link number 1.

If your first name starts with the letters M - Z please start reading the even posts first starting with link number 2.

I also want to let you know that each week I visit every blog. I noticed a blog today where my comment didn't show up. If it appears I haven't visited your blog by Sunday night, please let me know, because it is important to me to make sure you know I've visited you!

If you have any difficulties with your link please make sure to include the number of the link when you e-mail me. It is really difficult for me to find them otherwise.

If you have any questions about Alphabe-Thursday or problems doing your link just post it in a comment or send me an e-mail. I'll do my best to help you.

The McLinkey will be live from 6:00 pm MST time Wednesday night through 8:00 am MST time Friday morning!

And remember.... link back to this post, you need to be registered as a follower of my blog (since there are prizes involved and it makes my life easier that way), PG posts only, and try to visit all the other students according to the letter of your first name! The links will stay live after the final post deadline has passed so you can even wait and visit over the weekend or whenever you have more time.

Class is dismissed. You may link your "V" posts now for viewing, class!

Sorry, about that Jenny. I didn't think about the fact that I wrote a V post already about the vegetable garden today. Never thinking I would get picked. I already had my other V post done a long time ago lol.

Hi Jenny!!!!
So sorry I have been so absent for awhile!!!!!I have had no wind beneath my sail for awhile now and I needed a little break!!!!
So glad you are near the end of the alphabet and will be starting again soon!!!!I will get to class on time next time!!!!
V is for Victorious !!!!!I try and be victorious in so many things, I fail alot, but I try!!!!!
I think if your family thinks it is nice --unless it is illegal or a SIN, it is NICE in my book!!!!
I just wish I could wake up that early and FEEl like baking, I would rather sleep til 8, drink coffee and read blogs!!!!!
I do enjoy the smell of fresh baked goods!!!!!
have a great week

Dear Jenny,
Thank you for my prize! I woke up this morning, turned on the computer in order to link my post, and was surprised when my link was rejected!

You have made my day!

Erik is on the farm right now, but is coming home later today. I'm going to show him how good his drawings are and the wonderful response he has received for his art.

I did not ask him to draw Vikings. He came to me and asked me what I thought he was drawing. I was supposed to guess from the myriad of action-figures and characters from the cinema and children's literature. This was the first larger Viking. Then he drew the warnings-sign and the mini-Vikings.
My first idea for the V-post was to show pictures from the Museum of Antiquities' Gold Room. But when I saw his drawings, I decided to make the golden neck-rings wait until later, when we do the letter "G" again.

I love this meme! It's you Jenny and the wonderful participants that you attract, that make it so much fun, entertaining, educational, at times deeply serious, but always meaningful!

My very best wishes,
(aka Christina Wigren)
For the benefit of other readers:
Anna's V-word
