We of Mrs. Nesbitt's Abc Wednesday Round 5 have just crested the middle of the alphabet and now can coast down to Z. Use the links to other participating blogs. Thank you, Denise!
Shh! Don't tell anyone, but this is a preview of the cover of my 2010 calendar that I am still working on. A calendar with important dates (such as birthdays) has been Otto's and my (now my) traditional Christmas gift for family and a few friends. Click on it to read my double haiku on the left-hand side.
And here is another Ocean, great-grandson, at Christmas last year. He is the fifth in the unbroken line of Otto Smiths. His full name is Otto Ocean Anthony Smith, but, like his father, Otto Joseph (Joe) Mason Smith, his second name is the one by which he is known. And isn't Ocean a lovely name for a little boy, who, like his parents, spends much time on the water?
