Xavier




Okay, this is really lame, but I couldn't think of anything for X. I'm anxious to see what others did for this most challenging of letters (and I thought L was lackluster :)

Xavier is the only street in my zip code that starts with the letter X. I found that interesting trivia :)

I also worked for a doctor one time that had two middle names and one of them was Xavier.

X is a hard letter. Do you have a favorite X word?

In the meantime, have a great weekend!

I think yours is a creative choice, and you are right... X is very hard! I don't have a favorite X word...unless you attach it to my ex-husband. haha

Dana said...

I agree--I think you've been very creative with this post!

Have a great day!

Jeanie said...

I think you did an X-cellent job with the letter X.

Shelly said...

I don't have a favorite x word, but I thought yours was creative~

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I'm not sure what I would have chosen for X had I been doing this challenge. I think you did a great job choosing Xavier ... especially the reasoning behind your choice. ;-)

Clever photo! I've seen more
"Blue Eye" neighborhood watch signs then shady "Boris the Burglar." More trivia- Xavier 83rd on baby name list, Latin, meaning savior.

My 2 favorites: X-Ray, I kept a really cool one showing metal plate and screws after I broke my femur. Or those rainbow colored xylophones from youth!

My dad was an x-ray technician. I just bought a small Fisher Price Xylophone for our new grandson to play with - - - once he is born and is old enough.
I think you did great - - - very clever to find the street with an 'x' and then photograph it.

Think you did a pretty good job coming up with something. GREAT sign and neat about the doctor's name. My XOOM TABLET begins with an X. Love it. ENJOY your weekend. take care.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

DD's baby's name will begin with an X. No, not Xavier...I'm nicknaming him the X factor as his birth will make us all Xtremely happy. Have a fantastic Friday!

Deanna said...

How about tic-tac-toe.... X

Or hugs and kisses xoxoxo

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Dot said...

very cool choice for "X"!

Betty WSch. said...

I guess that street would be easy to find.
We used to have an XTrail. That't the only X word I can think of...

Rita said...

My favorite fake X word is Xmas!!! :):)

Chatty Crone said...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Well I think it's an excellent post for X and rather genius!

Tracy said...

Well, it was something :) Xavier is a college in Ohio so that is what I thought of first...hang in there; almost done!

SweetMarie said...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I agree with 'sweet Marie' above. I remember the grand kids talking Xmen, all the time.

You done very good!!!!

Toriz said...

I know someone with that middle name too; the son of a friend (funny that the Mother is my friend when he's my age, but there you go). I babysat his younger siblings sometimes.

I like the word xylaphone; just because it's a weird word, and I like weird words... Like Platipus; another cool weird word! ;)

Rob-bear said...

Xcellent post. And you didn't talk about xerox copiers or xanax pills.

And I hope you have a great weekend, too.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

X really is one of the hardest letters! We're almost done Betty!!

JosephAlsarraf said...

LOL! I remember when I used to play the alphabet game with my brother and sisters when we went on road trips and we would always get stuck on the last couple of letters. I don't know what my favorite X letter word is either. I think Xavier is a good word. : )

Lynn Proctor said...

my blog was probably my favorite x word--yes a hard letter day!

Professor X of the "X Men" is Charles Xavier...

I like to root for the Musketeer of Xavier University... the one in Ohio and not the one Louisiana..!

There was a rooty-poot rap group called "Xavier and the Straightjackets"...

...and all the "pretty" boys seemed to have names like "Xavier"..!

Intense Guy said...

I was just reading about Xavier... a friend's blog had a family member that went there... in Cincinnati...

'tis an old name...
