"Z" is for Z words

I usually get to Alphabe Thursday and the letter "Z"! Then I cheat and do something like Zzzzz...for sleepy heads or another  semi "Z" word!

I started thinking about names that start with the letter Z. I worked with a gal named "Zena"! I know two teenagers named "Zander". One of the most handsome German Shepherd dogs I knew was named "Zeus"! One of my dearest friends from my entire life since the tender age of 3 has the Italian last name of "Zinno". She lives in the St. Charles Mesa which is farming  country in the town  where I grew up. There is a street there named after her dad who was a prominent farmer there years ago. It is called Zinno Blvd. When I was married in 1984 my honey and I bought our wedding rings crafted by Zales at a local jewelry store called Jack Armstrong Jewelry! My dad owned his first color T.V. which was made by Zenith! Zoological Gardens is a fancy term for a "zoo"! While raising five children my house was often  a "zoo"! Zoom is a car going too fast! Zany is a crazy sense of humor. Zip it, something I often say to myself in order not to conform to the ways of others! I am a very open person and I often am too helpful! My energy is "zapped" so I decided to back off and not offer too much info! Zachary Taylor was the 12th president of the US. He died in office (1784-1850). Zabaglione is a light, foamy custard-like dessert served hot or chilled. A zebra is a black and white striped animal found in the wild! Zinfandel is a dry fruity red wine from California. Zinfandel is a small black grape grown chiefly in California, transplanted form Europe. Zinc is an essential mineral! I take zinc tablets daily because I have a crummy cold and feel like a zombie! The day before payday I usually have "zilch" in my wallet or bank account! Zinnias are brightly colored flower heads. My zip code is 80233. What's yours?

Join Ms. Jenny and all the "Z" participates this week!

I hope you won't mind me sharing something Secret, Something Gift Giving and Something so sweet! Come over to Suzanne's and join the fun! It is will a secret gift giving time to share!

Hope you are feeling better soon. I think you should ZIP yourself into a Zsnuggy and Zap yourself with a good old Zippy cocktail and go count some ZZZZZs. Please don't be picking any zits though... xo Diana
