Unidentified Flying Letters



UNBELIEVABLY we have reached the letter U in our adventure through the alphabet, our ULTIMATE destination UNDERWAY with UNBOUNDED and UNFETTERED enthusiasm.  This is the UMPTEENTH round so what will you UNEARTH this week?  Will it be the UNEXPECTED, or stories UNFOLDING, UNFORGETTABLE memories, and UNIQUE perspectives.  Put those UNIDENTIFIED flying letters into a word, or maybe more,  starting with the letter U.

What about UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS or UFOs?  There were mysterious flying airships sighted in the 1880s but it took until the 1950s before the flying saucers were reported and when the term UFOLOGY was coined.  The UK National Archives have helpfully released this chart from 1969 of data collected in 1967 and 68 so you can spot your local UFO as it flies past the window:-



In the meantime link up your post and UNFASTEN your seatbelt and relax into ABC Wednesday

  1. It's been a LOOOOng time since I've heard of any UF0 sightings. Guess Ill have to go get my camera and find out for myself. I think that I prefer the saucer time like ET's home. Do you think I'll find one? UNLIKELY!!

  11. Hi - whoever posted "Unbelievable good on a cold day ... or any day" (was #74) I had to delete because the link just went to an Australian version of this page. Please repost, whoever you are.

  12. I lived in Exeter, NH for years and back in the 70's there were famous sightings of UFS's. There is a UFO festival held there every year in honor of those times. I never saw any aliens that I knew of.

  13. "Unfettered enthusiasm" is a concept you model so well. Thank you for that uncommonly brilliant mix of "U" words :)
