Language:A little about alliteration

Human beings seem to have an innate affinity for finding music just about anywhere. This includes in the words we use in our daily language. One musical, literary device often found in Laredo blogs is alliteration.  Here's a brief definition of the word with a couple of accompanying examples.

Alliteration: the commencement of two or more stressed syllables of a word group either with the same consonant sound or sound group , as in from stem to stern or as in the more locally recognized Fun-filled fotoshop Friday. You might have noticed that the title of this post, itself,  is intentionally alliterative. 

What makes Fun-filled-fotoshop Fridays even more appealing is the poetic justice that is showcased in the fun-filled fotos themselves.  Below is today's offering from Laredo's unofficial Poet Laureate, BorderTown Blues.
