ABC Wednesday, Round 4 - K.


ABC Wednesday has reached the letter K for the fourth time - although it's only my third.

I thought I'd have a lot of trouble with this letter, since it's not used in the Irish language and therefore not very common in the Anglicised names.

I knew I was OK with this first photo though. This building is just around the corner from my house. It's currently in use as an after-school play centre, but it was previously a furniture shop as can be seen from the name on the roof!

Then in Main Street I found this sign, advertising Key-cutting, as well as shoe repair, fishing tackle, and Kayaks. It's a shame that orange craft isn't a Kayak - that would have made an interesting addition to this post.

Lastly, there's this red-painted shop, which seems to want to give things away. It's a pity there's always a catch with these offers!

More K offerings can be found through the ABC Wednesday page.

Kool "K's" You did a good job in finding K's considering that letter is not in your language.
I didn't know that. I guess you do learn somthing new every day I know I do.

Rabbit, rabbit.

You seem to have found plenty of "K"s, and I wouldn't have thought of one of them, except something with Keys.

I didn't know that about the letter K not being used. That has made me re think the Mnx alphabet and words.Why is it I never think of thinks like keys I always use and kayaks which I pass daily.

No K in Irish? I thought you couldn't be right. There's over in Kilarney--but then that was the only one I could come up with.

Tura lura lura!!!

Is it really not a kayak? It looks like a little one-person sit-on-top kayak to me. I LOVE the red on the communications shop - you captured the color really beautifully :)

I don't suppose free calls go with the offer.

Like Katney I thought there would be plenty of K's in the Irish language and then remembered all the Irish names start with a (hard) C and only the English sounding name starts with a K.
Good K's though!

Nice set of "K"s. That final picture could have been taken in my town where so many "free" things are offered that are not really free.
