V is for ............................

Vultures flying hi and in our lives taking what ever they want
Scrabble mm love the game but V can be hard to use.


what is Love without a V , loe
love

Victory in the garden and victory in the war


Ok enough of these tenuous links to V  I have been venturing into my family history I found a diary from Viking times



The Old Norse/Viking Months
22 December-20 January - Mörsugur



21 January - 19 February - Þorri



20 February - 20 March - Góa



21 March - 19 April Einmánuður



20 April - 19 May - Harpa



20 May - 18 June - Skerpla



19 June - 22 July - Sólmánuður



23 July - 21 August - Heyannir



22 August -20 September - Tvímánuður



21 September - 20 October - Haustmánuður



21 October - 19 November - Gormánuður



20 November - 19 December - Ýlir


I came across Végerðr the viking who  was looking very voluptous as she  sat around the village fire. Eating the feast prepared by the family.

Végerðr



The longboat had returned from Vennachar  in Scotland after a succesful trip.


The next interesting information I found on my venture into tracing family history was the Victorian times


  
Not sure who is in the  wedding photo

Ok how can somebody go from being so perfect to ageing so badly

Dear Queen Victoria of course I had best watch out I could end up FAT ( ok fatter)

basically this blog is Vacuist anyway onwards infact you world probably  be pleased for me to vade.

Anyway back to my family history I found that there were several vagabonds in the tree not impressed with that one.

my spirits  (not vodka) were lifted when I found several valedictorians in the tree



I even managed to find a medal.

Have I told you about my vegetarian friend she is amazing and made me a Tracy Figure can't wait for it to arrive.

Anyway better go as I have victory medals to sourse for the seven aside world cup competetion I have organised for work.
Oh before I go does anyone remember having  Vicks rubbed on them when full of a cold?
 and Victory Vs throat sweets,


then there is Venos coush syrup


and Vosene shampoo.



and finally

In the name of Jesus we have the Victory

Lot of great V words. When we were cleaning out mom's house, we found an old jar of Vick's. I don't even want to venture to guess how old it was, ha! Great V post.
