"U" is for U.S. Government
Daily Photo Community Alphabet Challenge

December 1, 2013
"U" is for U.S. Government.   We stayed in Roswell, NM last night and I just KNEW I would see a UFO and have the perfect U. Unfortunately (fortunately) that did not happen. ;-)
This "U" was taken near Magdelana, NM at The Very Large Array, one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories, it consists of 27 radio antennas in a Y-shaped configuration on the Plains of San Agustin fifty miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. Each antenna is 25 meters (82 feet) in diameter. The data from the antennas is combined electronically to give the resolution of an antenna 36km (22 miles) across, with the sensitivity of a dish 130 meters (422 feet) in diameter.

"S" is for Slinky! My favorite toy, this one sits on my desk as a reminder to not take life so Seriously. What could be better than a Silver Shiny Slinky??

 "What walks down stairs, alone or in pairs
and makes a slinkity sound?
A spring, a spring, a marvelous thing!
Everyone knows it's Slinky.
It's Slinky, it's Slinky,
It's fun, it's a wonderful toy.
It's Slinky, it's Slinky, it's fun,
It's a wonderful toy.
It's fun for a girl or a boy"

Bet you hum that all day... :D

"R" is for Riker our beautiful Red tri Miniature Australian Shepherd. He was named after commander Riker, (Number 1) on Star Trek, TNG.
Riker's sister Annie got the "A" post for the alphabet challenge and he has been patiently waiting his turn. He is such an amazing fur baby, incredibly loyal and wicked smart. My husband and I are very grateful Riker lets us live in his house *wink*

Have a Red letter day

"Q" is for Quack!

Meet George. He is the Pekin duck that lives and QUACKS at our pond. He and his mate, Gracie, are fairly new additions to our little piece of Texas.
They are fascinating to watch and listen to and have great personalities. When I speak to George he turns his head and listens (processes), very much like our dog does. He really QUACKS me up! (sorry couldn't resist that)

Have a Quirky day
