R is for ………………..

It’s Friday again and time for Alphabet Blogging with Mum

Right then – this week the letter is R
And what I discovered is that:-
The letter R is the only letter in the modern Latin alphabet  (which is the one we use) in which the uppercase has a closed section and the lowercase does not.
Also that:-
The letter R is sometimes referred to as the littera canina (canine letter). This phrase has Latin origins: the Latin R was trilled to sound like a growling dog

Anyway for me the letter R stands for …….. Round

And R stands for ………………..Reflections

Right on my doorstep

 And far far away

So then I thought of………. Real and Reflecting

 There is a place for Real Life right on my doorstep – messy or otherwise

  1. A beautiful post Cathy. It made me laugh … the ducks expecting a treat. I get down by the water and realise the old bread is still back home! Love your snatches of real life – nothing like the cosiness of our own comfy little spot is there.
    Cheers now 🙂

    1. They never went away from this Chinese place – actually you can buy glass ones in Bunnings that fit onto the outdoor glass toppped tables that loads of people have. Makes it so much easier for bbq time when everyone wants the red sauce!

  3. The round bench was my favorite along with the Carpenter’s video. Is Karen Carpenter the artist who died of anorexia? She was such a wonderful singer. This was a neat post for the letter R.
