X Is For X Marks The Spot

I remember my little red xylophone I had as a kid. Drove my mother crazy banging on that thing with the little white sticks.... Wish I had a photo of it.... but I don't, and I don't play anymore either.
So I sat and tried so hard to figure out what to post for X this week.
I got nothing.
Zip, zilch, nadda!
X marks the spot where my ideas should have been, but I have been robbed!
That 's it! That has to be the explanation for my absence of mind. Someone took the x words right out of my brain and left me feeling xenophobic.
Oh well, will try to do better next week.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
