ABC Wednesday, B for "No Boots on the Ground!"

No boots on the ground... When I heard that for the first time, I was puzzled. What does it mean? Apparently there were many others who were at a loss,among them a couple of cartoonists, whose drawings you can see here.


BOOTS ON THE GROUND.......



We thank Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC, and we must thank Roger too for the weekly job to find  ten bloggers for each of the ABC Team members  to visit and to read their posts. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar . This week we are looking for words  beginning with B.

Het is inderdaad grappig ingevuld door de tekenaars maar ik heb nog steeds geen idee wat er nou precies bedoeld werd met die uitspraak.

Fijne abc-dag / - week

Ha! Very interesting. Our son-in-law has had his boots on the ground in two deployments to Afghanistan. So glad he doesn't wear those boots anymore...
