After this week, there are only two more weeks for Round 14 so we're eXcited to see how many of our new (or old - and I don't mean that in age!) contributors might like to join in the fun of being on the eXcellent team that visits 10 posts per week. I'm sure you already do that anyway, but it's always eXtra fun to meet others on ABC Wednesday. We do count on your help in keeping this eXciting weekly blog spot a place to eXhibit your writing and photography! Please contact the eXtraordinary Roger, our administrator, to let him know and he'll eXplain the duties further. Also, thanks to the eXceptional Mrs. Nesbitt, who created ABC Wednesday over 7 years ago!
