Alphabe-Thursday "D"

Once again, I am linking up with Jenny for
Today's letter is D, one of my favorite letters!

Davis - Growing up, I was so proud to have the last name "Davis." Although it is a common name in the Chesterfield county area, and there are lots of other "Davises'" around, very few were related to us because my daddy was from the Columbia area and that's mainly where the other kin people lived. Still though, I think "Davis" is a good, strong name, and I'm proud it's a part of my heritage.

denim - There is nothing more comfortable to me than a well-loved, worn pair of jeans (shorts or long pants). I grew up wearing both Wrangler jeans and Levis, but today prefer a more feminine-cut, as long as they are denim....

dictionaries - I simply cannot live without a dictionary available at all times. I love words! Several years ago, I told Chuck that for the next gift-giving occasion, I wanted a new dictionary. He bought me a wonderfully current Merriam-Webster with plenty of words in it to satisfy my vocabulary-craving, for a while, anyway....

Dial soap - Dial soap was a given when I was growing up. Sometimes the color of the bar would change, but never the familiar name, shape, or scent. Since I've been a consumer and purchasing what I choose, I've tried many different brands, but always seem to come back to the standard.....good, ol' Dial soap!


  1. I like your D words, and I agree Davis is a name to be proud of. My cousin married into that name!

    And Dial brings back lots of memories for me, too.


  2. Great list... Davis is a wonderful family name; some of my very closest friends are in a large Davis family; denim - rarely a day goes by that I'm not in it; dictionary - english, spanish, scrabble are my faces! Dial soap...hmmm... we used so much of it as kids that I can't stand the smell any more... LOL

  3. What fun and random Ds! I have known a few Davises in my life!

  4. Always great to be happy and proud of your family name :o) And a very sweet hubby to get you your dictionary :o) I love to know the origins of words and their meanings.

    Denim-a very Durable and versatile fabric.
    Dial...havent used that brand in a long time...but I remember using it as a kid :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!

  5. I like the name Davis, too. It's wonderful to read your pride in the name...I love our last name, too.

    Thanks for a delightful link to the letter D.

    I really enjoyed visiting you today!
