Contest:Z is for Zaria: An ABC Couplet
**I am a nearly seventy year old mother, grandmother, and great grandmother..I enjoy going to the seashore for vacation..I have always enjoyed picking up seashells and wondered if they all had names..Well, there are over 15,000 different kind of sea creatures that live in those shells and some have not been named..

You've got to be kidding

    Well this took me on a journey! You must have a vast knowledge of seashells to name so many, and in alphabetical order! I love to spend countless hours on the beach myself so this was treat. It is most impressive work!

    I like seashells myself and you give off the fun of collecting by emphasizing this. I agree - this site is addictive - but an addiction which is hopefullt much safer than most addictions. Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    Wow, this is a truly amazing write! You've started it off rather nicely...don't give up my friend! This is a difficult contest, I don't even know if I'm going to enter it because it's so hard! Oh, it is for the contest right? You could just be doing this for the sake of the challenge, I didn't think of that! In any case, it is a fantastic work!!
