z is for zzzzzzz

That we are not much sicker and much madder than we are is due exclusively to that most blessed and blessing of all natural graces, sleep.
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963), English writer

the picture of ms t's sweet sleeping feet reminds me of another pic in my photo archives which brings together the letter Z and feet. embarrassingly this is what my feet look like in late summer. sherlock might surmise and say that these feet belong to someone who is fond of walking and a particular pair of sandals - and of course he would be correct! if anyone has a remedy to prevent the advent of the z lines next summer that doesn't entail giving up my beloved teva-knock-offs I'm open. actually, the only time I am chagrined is when I have to wear a different pair of shoes and people make fun of my z's. but really, truth be told I kind of like sporting the pair of suntanned z's! it's ze!

z is also for zebras in zambia! - from my zany zizter zannie who is currently ziving in zambia, if the zods zmile on ze, zne zay I zope to zisit!

Congrats on the wonderful alphabetic series.
Very thoughtful and entertaining.

The baby feet are so sweet! Love your Z feet, too. The problem of tan lines on feet is universal, I guess.

And zebras - what were the evolutionary forces thinking? Stripes? They're so beautiful, and so very unusual.

Bravo on your journey through the alphabet. Now what?

A spot of self tan on the zeds perhaps?

Ah zebras, I shall remember you to them when I drive past them on the hill overlooking the city :-)
