Z is for Zee End of Zee A to Z Challenge!

On the island of St. Maarten, in Marigot on the the French side, there was a hole-in-the-wall breakfast place, where the owner would call out to you as you passed, "We have ZEE BEST BREAKFAST here!" He was a French Canadian, transplanted to the island, and his exuberance always made us laugh. It also got us to eat there.

For me, the A to Z Challenge has been at times an anchor and at other times a chore. But on the whole, it gave me something to connect into each and every day during a very difficult month (Mom passed away on 3/31, I was on that jury thing, and I've had a cold for two weeks). Best of all, it brought me more than 20 new friends who now follow me and whom I follow. I am grateful to those of you who stopped by regularly and left comments - that was definitely the best part - getting to know you and to see the creative things you came up with on your own blogs.

I have a commitment to supporting other writers, so if any of you have something you would like to promote, please let me know. I am happy to do a blog interview with you, as I did for Arthur Wooten (W is for Wooten), to review your work, spread the news of your successes or give you a chance to be a guest blogger. You know where to find me.

So, with the exuberance of the man from Marigot, I say unto you, it is Zee End of Zee Challenge! I wish you all Zee Very Best and look forward to following you into Zee Future!

  3. Yep it's me again - Melissa's DH - I have to say the the breakfast she speaks of was one of zee best breakfasts on the island. In La Paz Mexico (which we love) we found an even better breakfast which was on a hill and overlooked the bay of La Paz - perhaps ZEE very best breakfast we've ever had and this is ZEE truth!
