x is for ...

X-shaped stand! which is not found in the dictionary, but since this is not scrabble, I hope it qualifies for this week's X... It is found in our living room for the small barrel of Spanish sherry , it has a diameter of 22 cms / 8.7 inches and  it holds about 10 liters / 2.6 gallons. That should be enough for  the ABC crowd (updated to include everybody !), a small glass is waiting for you...after you leave your comment!

  7. DEFINITELY qualifies. And if quaffed, quenches, to boot.

  8. I've never really had a taste for sherry, but if you're offering, I will accept a small glass.

    Cheers!

  9. Great post! Sometimes letters are actually more like shapes that can be found around us. And since the letter X has so few usable words to choose from, I think you did very well to find the image of an X!

    Now, I would like you to pour me a glass. It has been that kind of a week! I will not say 'No'!

    Hmm, yummy! I liked that! Please, just a few more drops....

    Best wishes,

  10. The perfect X, just a small glass for me. There may be another X lurking in the barrel, didn't sherry originally come from Jerez whose original name was Xeres.

  11. Lifting my glass to you, in hope that it's content may always be filled with truth. Please have a wonderful Wednesday.

  12. Oh dear. I am not a member of the ABC crowd. Does that mean I can't have a sip?

  13. Since I'm new to the crowd, I'll abstain to allow the older members get theirs first. I love the stand and the fact that it actually holds a wooden keg of sherry.

  14. This certainly works for ME! I'm ready to sit down with a glass of whatever it is that is in that cask!

  21. What a great shot for X Mar. I don't do the ABC theme but it's interesting seeing what you come up with. I think X would stump me.
