My MIL suffered from a rare genetic disorder called PXE: Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum. It's a connective tissue disorder, one effect of which was to give her this yellowish colored bumpy skin on her armpits and neck that looked sort of like chicken skin...thus the "xantho" in the name.

Xanthophobia ...good thing I don't have it, it's taking over my back yard.


Shame on these two, committing an X-rated act right here for all to see

Ha I forgot about my x-rated picture! Maybe I'll save it for the next "x" day...birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it...

This was a real challenge, for sure. Mine is a picture of my Scrabble game with two of the most popular words beginning with X.

Apologize for terrible pictures Scanner isn't working and tried to take with camera from photo album.

The fortifications of Xi'an (Chinese: 西安城墙), also known as Xi'an City Wall, in Xi'an, an ancient capital of China, represent one of the oldest, largest and best preserved Chinese city walls.

There's an X on the door of the garden shed. This was a difficult one.

I bought this to send to a friend whose name begins with X, a difficult initial.

I did give credit to google. It was a stock picture, one of many. The only other picture I have is of a family member playing the xylophone, and as I wasn’t born I can’t give credit to the photographer whom I did not know. Oh, after being at the table twenty years I do read all the rules and regulations.

So it is off the internet?

Yeah, threejs, photos off the internet are not within the guidelines for these threads, especially copywritten and watermarked photos such as posted above. I'd rather you posted a family photo and be unsure of the photographer than an internet photo as at least that would be more personal and meaningful to you.
