X/Alphabe-Thursday

 Xylophones

It's looking a tad Christmas-y here, isn't it? That's because X is one of those special letters I  save up for.

I suspect simultaneously playing the xylophone and walking is harder than it first appears. I'm sure I couldn't do it. How about you?

Xylophone bench, Rochester Institute of Technology

Isn't this bench shaped like a xylophone absolutely wonderful?

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

Now that looks like fun! I love that bench!

Kathy said...

Yep, X is the hardest and you got two. You were brave to use them both. Or maybe you saved a couple more for the next round!

Sandra said...

when i saw the bench i thought it was a close up of a one and then read the comment. it is just about the coolest bench i have ever seen. and walking and playing would be really hard. i do like to beat on one when i have access. like twinkle twinkle little star is all i can play

Nancy said...

I can't eat and think at the same time, let alone do this! Love that bench!

Kate said...

It would be fun to watch and to hear.

see you there! said...

I could have spent the whole day and never come up with an "X" word let alone found photo's for it. You did a wonderful job.

When I was a kid and went to church we'd often have zylophone players come and "entertain." Never did impress me much but at least nobody was talking!

We had a president who couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time...he's the guy named for that famous automobile. I have a feeling that walking and playing one of these things would take extraordinary multi-tasking skills!

Lois Evensen said...

Yes! A very cool bench!

Nezzy said...

Hi EG...yes, it's warm for the first part of May...it was 90 degrees early afternoon...and will be the same tomorrow. But out nights are still cooling off, which helps a lot...

How fun! I've never seen anything quite like it...

Gillian Olson said...

The bench is amazing, what a great capture.

edenhills said...

I love that creative bench! I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to play and walk at the same time.

Esther Joy said...

What a great post for the letter X! Love the bench! Also the bright red pants in the first photo!

Lorna said...

"xylophone" is a lovely word and you just proved it.

Judie said...

I could never walk and play an instrument at the same time. That bench is so terribly clever! I love it!!!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Vicki/Jake said...

That is a really cool bench!

Susan said...

Not a chance in **** would I be able to play one and walk. I can hardly walk and chew gum!

Randy said...

Awesome bench.

Love your post♫♪ Thanx for featuring the Xylophone for the letter X. It is a funtastic instrument.

VBR said...

Well, since I can't walk and take on the cellphone at the same time, I am thinking that walking and playing a musical instrument would be something along the lines of impossible.
And, yes, that bench is really something. What a fun post.

Marie said...

Very cool pick for X! :-)

Karen S. said...

So very cool! I just adore their little red caps and bright pants as well! A neighborhood park installed one like this for all the children to play! Great X post, thanks!

Halcyon said...

I can hardly walk and chew gum! Love the bench. :)

Annesphamily said...

What fun! I like the history you provided us here too! I think that would be so difficult walking and playing! I appreciate all the x-cellent effort you put into your post! Come visit soon!

beckyp said...
