A to Z Blogging

A to Z Road Trip 2019 – The June Files

As I stated last month, I am participating in the A to Z Road Trip. This means that I am visiting select blogs between May 2019 and March 2020 and commenting on their A to Z posts. At the beginning of each month, I will post links to the blogs I visited the previous month along with the comments I wrote.

My first stop this month was at a blog called The Vagabond where I really enjoyed the post Accept Your Child. Here is mt comment:

I am participating in the A to Z Road Trip. What an excellent post. Acceptance is a tough nut. I think we need to be practicing two other kinds of acceptance, 1) to accept our selves and 2) to accept the praise, criticism and love of others. Most people who struggle to accept their children struggle with those other 2 as well. Thanks for such an insightful post.


Jeanne from, the blog, Everyone has a Story wrote a most excellent post about Uncle Frankie’s Pickled Eggplant.

My comment to her was: I am participating in the A to Z Road Trip. Pickled eggplant reminds me of the years I spent in Russia. Not because I ate it there, I didn’t I did ear eggplant for the first time while living in Russia and fell in love with it. I also ate pickled tomatoes for the first time in Russia. I would love to try pickled eggplant. It sounds amazing.

My next stop was The Rhone River, which I visited through the blog Me, in Me. My comment flowed like this:

I am participating in the A to Z Road Trip. I really enjoyed your post. I have some Swiss ancestry so I enjoyed your post on a multitude of levels. I found it interesting that your A to Z challenge was mostly about rivers in India, but yet you chose to focus your road trip visitors on a European river. I like how you tied India back into it. I hope to wade (pun intended) into some of your other A to Z river posts later on this month.

Mid month I visited some more blogs and read a post at http://uniquelymaladjustedbutfun.blogspot.com/2019/04/choicecompliments-and-coffee.html uniquely maladjusted but fun. This was my comment:

I am participating in the A to Z road trip. I was hoping that the leather jacket guy would have some redeeming qualities but quickly realized he got worse and worse. The transition between him menacing and tink rescuing needs some polish but I see where you are going with it. transitions are difficult for sure.
