#atozchallenge, Z is for Zoogonous…

baby-499976_1920.jpg

Another new obscure word for me, zoogonous is an adjective meaning giving birth to live offspring rather than laying an egg, so to speak!   Which I’m hoping is a little analogous to what I’ve done with my blog since I began writing it last fall 🙂

And with this Z post, my 2016 A to Z challenge is done.  So much fun, so much work, sign me up for next year!

      1. A long and tedious car journey, with bored children in the back asking “are we there yet” over and over, while traffic jams make progress halting and unpredictable, and the radio stations keep playing that song we can’t stand… same time next year? 😉
