I become an abecedarian

Pronunciation: \ˌā-bē-(ˌ)sē-ˈder-ē-ən\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English abecedary, from Medieval Latin abecedarium alphabet
Date: 1603
: one learning the rudiments of something (as the alphabet)

Mary has encouraged me, in many things, most lately in joining the 2010 ABC-along. I so thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful posts she did last year telling us all about NY and NYC that I was swayed.

I don't live in the Big Apple* or have all those exciting attractions. My world is much smaller. And my route, the same little track I make routinely to work and back home, does not cover much distance, but I have decided to follow Mary's lead and spend the year giving you a glimpse into the area where I spend much of my time, Marietta est. 1834. [1849 statistics here]

I've lived in Georgia all my life and was born only one county to the north. I work on the Square. Throughout this year I will try to show you, from A-Z, all about my little corner of the world. I'm not going to venture any further off the square than I can walk with my camera during a lunch break.

It may be a Small World, but I love it here and I enjoy working on the Square. I hope by the end of the year, you'll see why.

*we aren't the Big Apple, but we do have the Big Chicken. It isn't on the square.

Ooooh. I almost missed this post. I'm really looking forward to your ABCs from your little corner of the world.
Loved the Big Chicken :)

I'll always remember the Big Chicken. That's how we were given directions to Little Quilts. I really need to get up that way again. Have to tell my son I need a trip to Marietta when we go up in Feb. Are there still several yarn shops around that area?
Great pictures. Can't wait to see a year through your eyes.
