Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “F”
Event Type: General Blogging
Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly
Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
Last week we had the “tagged E”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “F” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “F”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “F”!!! Myself I’ll focus on “FRISCO”:
FRISCO BAY BLUES
I like to play finger style acoustic guitar inspired by the old blues masters of the Mississippi Delta 1920-1940. I’m happy, that the harp player Gernot (Hamburg) and bass-player jmrukkers (Zurich) often collaborate by remixing and adding their talents to my solo guitar tracks on soundcloud or wikiloops.

I got the blues when my baby
left me down by the Frisco Bay;
An ocean liner came and took her away.
I didn’t mean to treat her bad,
she was the best gal I ever had;
She said good-bye, made me cry,
Made me wanna lay down my head and die…
F is for Flight of the Sparrow! http://naomibaltuck.wordpress.com/2013/12/01/the-flight-of-the-sparrow/
thank you for your little story around a metaphor “In The Ecclesiastical History of the English People he compares a person’s life to the flight of a sparrow…”
Muy, muy bella.
Thanks my friend.
That is a beautiful photo, Frizz! Maybe one day I’ll be able to take a good bridge picture… We are celebrating Valentine Week special over at GatheringBooks! I’m sharing a collaborative post for today’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. I have a few words to share with you, plus a little something on the side. Here’s F is for Five Words and Four Loves. =)
thank you for “I have asked permission from a few real-life friends as well as fellow photo enthusiasts on Instagram to bring life to Levithan’s lyrical entries. I hope you like this beautiful collaborative post, and I wish you all a lovely Valentine’s week!” P.S.: F is for Fats (as it is M for Myra).

hi Rosemarie, you’ve curated a wonderful Foto gallery tagged F – my favorite: the farm field (in the Alps?)
Very pleasing to the ear.

Great shot of the bridge, Frizz. And I lved that music… Here’s my entry http://suejudd.com/2014/02/11/frizztexts-a-to-z-challenge-f-is-for-fox-amphoux/
again your great intro style: “F could be for …Florence, Fontevraud, Fontfroide, Forcalquier, Freyburg…” – you remembered me, that I’ve been in Frankfurt:
Ah, Frankfurt am Main, and Frankfurt an der Oder…been through both, no photos!

Enjoyed your photo and music. Here is my entry, Firemen and fire engines. http://wp.me/p23TG1-3sX
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
F for Francine! P.S.: you’ve found wonderful words describing a fireman’s job: “…He is responsive to a child’s laughter because his arms have held too many small bodies that will never laugh again…” – the first fireman who came in my life rescued me from a roof I had climbed up too, aged 7, the roof was from a destroyed, bombed house after the war in Germany, there was no way down, because the staircase broke down. I remember the many people down on the street and the newspaper photographers, staring up to me and the fireman, if he would manage his task… – I have to thank you for this soothing flashback into my past, Francine…

That is a gorgeous photo, Frizz! Here is my entry: http://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/frizz-a-to-z-challenge-f-is-for-fountain-of-the-four-rivers/
thank you for “the fountain symbolize
what were considered the world’s four greatest rivers:
and the Rio de la Plata…”
I only swam in the rivers
oh no, I forgot the
I love the Golden Gate Bridge. The best shots I think are taken underneath it when you take a cruise. Love the fog element and the poem is wonderful.
Pingback: Frankie and Johnny and Frizz’s F challenge | Every Day Another Story
Terrific effing music by fingerpickin’ Frizz et al. Tags for F abound. My most frequently used tag is Folk Music. i found this folk song, Frankie and Johnny and posted it again too.
hi Stephen (Bumba), very appreciated how you always make so much efforts to describe the historical backgrounds of songs! I’ve learned a lot details from you. You amused me today with your comment “This week’s letter is F. Frizz (hey, Frizz begins with F!) just asks that you send in a post that is tagged with the letter F. It’s that simple. (And don’t use the F word, please! I know that may be hard for some of you, but do your best)…” P.S.: today I’m learning (and recording) on my guitar: “The duck’s yas yas yas”; I believe it’s about sex (without using the forbidden F word).
I thought that historical stuff was boring, but I enjoy it too. Yes, the F word is an american institution. How the F do you say the F word in German?
I could use it, Bumba (but I like to follow my Jewish friends who always said: “we do not use German anymore, the language of our murders”) – instead I’m actually learning the hidden meanings of the “yas yas yas-lyrics”:
uploaded now my simple version:
now waiting for piano, blues harp, bass etc.
Awesome bridge photo, Frizz. Love the song too. 🙂
