~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.21 -- "U" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of May 26th: (1) Starts with U; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Kids

(3) Kids:  At least once a week we have been privileged to walk our KP to school.  Sometimes, mostly with cold or bad weather we drive her.  She likes to walk with the neighbor kids.  She was walking with a close friend and her mother on this day.  The neighbor's little brother was dilly-dallying along behind or I would have had him in the picture also.

I was trying to get a good morning shadow picture when I took this.

(1) Starts with "U": "Unglued" is a seven letter word starting with "Un".  There are 355 of these seven letter starters, this is one that only gets you nine points in Scrabble. 

Most "Un" words and many of the plain "U" words have an opposite by dropping the prefix.  A few like "Upload" (I'm uploading this when I finish--actually also every time I "save" during composition) will have for opposite another prefixed word like here, "Download".

(2) Week's Favorite: We had a nasty storm with several smallish tornados around our area this week.  After one hard day of hail and winds we had this lovely Rainbow make and appearance over the homes behind us. 

I almost got "Unglued" while trying to "Upload" my picture.  
This one isn't the one that I was trying to "Upload", instead of
Screen Printing it to Picasa I accidently hit the Delete button. 
That picture was much better than this one.
(4A little lagniappe for "U":  I found this comic for some reason, I am not sure what.  It sort of fits here, a couple is getting "Unfriended

And Dagwood is dreaming about food.  Do you think that Dagwood is on Facebook?  I didn't try to find out but I am thinking his syndication is.

Did you know that Unfriend is not a word for Second Graders.  KP missed getting her deserved grade when she used Unfriend in a sentence.  Her teacher counted that answer as bad, not credit.  Seems she doesn't subscribe to Google:

Do you think "Unfriend" is a real English vocabulary word? 
Best answer:  We asked "Oxford".  (click here to find out)
