A/ABC

 Abandoned

This house looks do sad! It makes me wonder who lived there once and why they left the place to let it slowly fall apart.

Two letter Scrabble word, pronounced ʻAʻā

According to the Oxford Dictionary, aa is is very rough , jagged lava rock with a "frothy texture." Apparently aa is found in Hawaii.

I am joining ABC Wednesday  HERE

These abandoned buildings also leave me with more questions than answers.
PS: Google has confirmed that AA is word. (~‾⌣‾)~

I think the house must had been a happy home once.

Good morning, I love the abandoned house. I am sure it was a happy home at one time. Sad to see it now looking lonely.
Have a happy Tuesday!

Gotta just love that abandoned house.

Mary Hone said...

That is a very cool old building, love that!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

The abandoned house is incredibly photogenic, the imagination could work overtime on the 'why's' here. Aa, well I never, love to learn something new every day, merci beaucoup EG :)

Linda W. said...

I love photos of old, abandoned tumble-down buildings. You found a good one!

William Kendall said...

One wonders how long that old place will still stand.

Stephanie said...

Great capture of this old home. Too bad no one lives in it anymore.

Ruth Hiebert said...

The walls of that house have,no doubt experienced a lot of life.It would be interesting to know what some of that was.

Sandra said...

that is sure a new word. will send this to my friend who plays online scrabble daily... i really really love this sad building. i think it needs to be saved and put back like it was..

Cloudia said...

Spelled in Hawaiian with the glottal stop:
'a'a

Love the old place

Pamela Gordon said...

What a sad old house. If walls could only talk. I learned a new word today! Thanks. :)

Sylvia K said...

Oh, a sad old house it is indeed and it does make one wonder about its history! A terrific capture as always EG and a great start for my day, also as always!! Hope you have a great weekend!! Enjoy!!

Karen S. said...

Funny thing, although this one is a bit smaller, and way in need of TLC but it looks a lot like the first house my hubby and I owned! I like your AA word too, and I've used it before too!

Haven't played Scrabble in donkey's years... I love the abandoned house. Should be a book cover and the beginning of a story!

RedPat said...

A sad sad house, EG! ;-(

Jenny said...

What a strange little house! What's with all the random extra pieces of wood around the windows? Is this some funky art installation? Most bizarre, and yes, sad.
Love the picture of the outdoor rink on the lake. We have a small shallow lake nearby and the town usually is able to clear a sizable area for skating. Nothing better than skating outside on the perfect winter day.

Rusty and grungy always catch my eye. Love the sad old ABANDONED house.
Well I learned that aa is a word. Never knew that.

The photo of the abandoned house evokes such charm, whimsy, and contemplation. Wonderful piece of art.

Wishing you a joyful week ~ ^_^

Susan said...

That old house looks like it was the perfect "tiny house" doesn't it. I love the character it has. Looks lonely though.

Revrunner said...

Wait! Are you SURE that's a legitimate Scrabble word. :-)

Michelle said...

I always love seeing old houses and often photograph them myself. Nice shot!

The Furry Gnome said...

Incredible old abandoned house you found!

Rose said...

You could have join Tuesday's Treasures with that old house...I love it.

Never heard of that word!

Indrani said...

It may have some happy stories inside.
Happy ABCW!

Rob Siemann said...

It is also a small river in the north of France, 50 miles, 80 km, but unknown to Google for some reason. To be found in any french dictionary, I just double-checked

Shooting Parrots said...

Fantastic old house, but sppokier in the dark I guess!

Melody Steenkamp said...

Abandoned, I like!

Kate said...

The house may be abandoned, but I think it looks cozy and welcoming!

Halcyon said...

I always wonder about those "Scrabble" words. When I hear someone use aa in casual conversation, I'll believe it's a real word! ;-)

Hildred said...

So sad about abandoned houses. I would be very frustrated with the aa scrabble word!!!

happywonderer.com said...

Love that abandoned shot! Cool. Great word for A!

Roger Owen Green said...

I need to play SCRABBLE more often
ROG, ABCW

Lea said...

When I see old abandoned houses, I like to think the people built a new, more modern, and spacious house to live in.

Kathy said...

I use this word frequently in Words With Friends. It comes in handy at the end of the game and you have a lone "A" left and nowhere to put it! I'm a real fanatic on WWF. I have an account with one user name on my iphone and another account with another user name on my tablet. It's a real time-waster but, oh, so fun!

Kay said...

That house looks like it was once a very sweet place. I agree with ciel: it should be a book cover, or the subject of a story.
"Aa!" Now that you definite it it does seem very Hawaiian.

Joy said...

I like how close the trees are, almost as if they are becoming part of the house.

Susan Anderson said...

Cool old house. Aa, huh? I think I would challenge that one if my scrabble-mate tried it.
