ABC Wednesday: X for Hugs and Kisses

Some of our blogging friends may notice that we have been absent from the blogosphere for a while. I (Bradley) was trying to travel from Taipei to Washington, DC to be with our daughter's family, for Christmas and for her oncoming new baby. My trip was delayed for three days due to the snow storm in the northeast of the United Sates on December 19.

When I was pondering on the perfect "X" for my ABC entry, my daughter said why not Kisses and Hugs. I thought that was a great idea, but where is the "X". She said "XOXO", have I seen Aunt Sue always end her Christmas card with a XOXO!!

Oh, I am too old for internet. XO for me is the Extra Old Cognac, or the XO sauce in Chinese cooking, a very fine sauce of a blend of dried scallop, mushroom, hot pepper and black bean.

According to most sources, in XOXO, the X stands for Kisses and O stands for Hugs. However, some believe that O stands for Kisses and X stands for Hugs, which also makes sense.

Here is our two years and four months old granddaughter at Christmas. She is so cute and how can I not XOXO her!!

The photos were shot with Nikon 135mm DC lens on my D700.
