A to Z Blog Challenge 2021 – Letter X – X-tra Nutty


A to Z Blog Challenge 2021 – Letter X – X-tra Nutty




It’s that time again for the April A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ve done this one for quite a few years, and it’s always fun.

This time I decided to go with the miscellaneous type posts, which some days will be whatever I want, and other days will be a resurrection of my older posts that pretty much no one or very few ever saw.

So, here we go with Letter X  …

  1. And here I thought the xerus (which is a type of squirrel) was the only animal specie starting with X! I found the real definitions of these weird words just as fascinating as the daffy ones…


    • Thanks, Bill! Cool that a squirrel is a xerus! Most X words I have no idea what the real meanings are, so it’s fun to make something up … and then see what it really is. Glad you liked these. 🙂


  2. Those are some interesting X words and definitions.
    I love letter X posts! Always such variety.
    It’s hard to believe the blogging challenge is almost over for 2021. Then the after survey, reflections, and the road trip sign-up.
    Plus, I’m taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!
