The alphabet hunt is winding down with words starting with the last three letters: XYZ.
I’ll start with the X in Roman Numerals. X equals 10.
This system of writing numbers started in Rome using letters from the Latin alphabet and was used up to the Middle Ages. I remember learning about The Roman Numerals in school.
XV in Roman Numerals equals 15 and by adding 1 would make it 16 (XV1) and so on up to twenty and then it becomes XX.
I wrote out examples of Roman Numerals and the numerical values.
Y will be the easiest to find and I think I will see a lot of yellow in my fellow hunter’s selections.
In mixing paint you learn yellow is a secondary color made by combining red and green in equal amounts.
Yellow is sometimes used in a derogatory manner by calling someone yellow, meaning a coward.
On a nicer note, yellow is a pleasant color that catches your eye. Here are some cheery yellow flowers and a colorful swallowtail butterfly.
A mallard duck family and their two young ducklings.
This is the yeast I use in bread making. It can be purchased at the grocery store.
The last letter is to find words starting with Z. I Have two friends with names starting with Z, Zulu and Zella.
A zipper is usually a metal fastener used to keep to pieces of clothing together but now they have plastic zipper seals to keep freezer bags closed tightly.
Zipper seal bags are ones I use in the freezer to preserve food.
The number 0 in numerical numbers means zero. Absolutely O...zilch, zip.
❤️ Coming to the end of the Alphabet Hunt is kinda sad. It’s been tons of fun finding words and seeing what others have collected. Many thanks to @barbara-orenya for starting and hosting this Hunt.❤️
