B Is For…

Undaunted by last week’s challenges involving The Fonz’s favorite letter, The Nest continues on to a letter we won’t have to pay Pat Sajak for in my Photography A to Z series!  This is not to be confused with that other A to Z blog thingie that usually goes on in April… I’m only posting this on Tuesdays, and I’ve made up my own set of rules I’ll abide by for the entirety of this feature…

  • Only photos I took myself will be used.
  • All photos used will have been taken without any thought given to this challenge.

In layman’s terms, very photo I honor in one of these A to Z posts will have been snapped by yours truly… and I don’t intend to “cheat” by trying to deliberately take photos of stuff for the harder letters that will no doubt flummox me come late summer.  I think I’ll have an easier time rounding up photos of B things from my voluminous photo archive than I managed for A, but we’ll see.  As The Cars once said, let the photos be bold!

We’ll get the obvious one out of the way before I get clawed to death by a pissed off pet.  My BLACK cat BISKIT

A BASKETBALL stuck up in a tree at the park.

park benches

Anyone need a BENCH?  These were piled up near the main office of my local park last time I went…

A couple of hot air BALLOONS I saw at a stop on the way home from Minneapolis in 2011.

Loose BASEBOARD that was one of the many high class amenities I found in my room at the Empire Hotel during my Millionaire trip in 2001.

Ody posed with not just any BASEBALL, but the only real Major League homerun ball I ever got my hands on, hit by Scott Rolen in 2004.

BEAUTY the chimp.  If ever there was truth in advertising…

A BUTTERFLY at the zoo.  Not that I hold any grudges against them….

A BULLDOZER in the finishing stages of tearing down the neighboring house at my old nest…

My BROKEN squirrel figurine that I managed to damage before I even got home with it…

BASHFUL the pet rock posing with my BOTTLE of Dos Equis I picked up off a parking lot.  While he was staying at The Nest last Fall, he got all the BABES

Package of turkey BACON at some point before I ate it.  Why did I take a picture of a package of turkey bacon, you may be asking yourself?  This is why

A BUST of former Pittsburgh Pirates team president Carl BARGER on display at PNC Park.  If somebody made such a hideous likeness of myself once I’d passed on, I’d come back and haunt their ass…

Some moron with a popcorn BUCKET on their head…

And how can I end on anything other than this super cute possum BABY latched on to its mother’s BOOB BREAST?  I’m sure I have many more photos I could use for this post, but unlike Kenny Loggins I don’t have time to count all the B’s in the hive.  I will C you next Tuesday!

    Yuck, turkey bacon. Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll continue to clog my arteries with the real thing.

    • The main advantage to turkey bacon is that there were no rubber band pieces of fat that were practically inedible. The main disadvantage is that my skillet would reek of turkey bacon grease for a week even after a thorough cleaning…

  2. best B two day ….frum BISKIT & ody !!!!!! 🙂 ♥♥

  3. Bacon? Did you say that “B” word? Sorry – I hardly noticed your other “B’s” after that one – Mitzi understands after she came here for the harvest………. 😉


    • Yeah, Mitzi’s had a bit of trouble shimmying into her cheerleading outfit recently… though she’s always been a big girl. I guess that won’t be a problem though when her and Suzie Q go pole dancing together….

  4. I am envious of your baseball. SO envious that I think I will have to take ours out into the light and take a picture of it, too. Because in all these years — Garry has had it for maybe 35 years? — no one has ever taken its picture. That’s pretty weird, isn’t it?

    • I have many more balls… almost an even 100 now. But that one is special because I can pull up an old box score and point to exactly where it came from. I thought you’d put up a picture of Garry;s baseball before, but maybe you’d just described it to me. Mine don’t have autographs, other than the one stamped on them by the Commissioner…

    I like your photos, especially the Butterfly one. Although taking a pic of turkey Bacon, and then admitting that you did that to the world, is Brave on your part. Very “B.”

    Biskit looks very cute sitting there looking up, his own puddle of darkness!
    Well done getting that picture of Ody with the baseball. I’m assuming that seconds after you got this shot he shredded it with his claws?

    I like the possum and baby! That bacon expired in 2012…hope you enjoyed it before then! 🙂

    • I was extremely lucky to have the possum family visit me at work one night. There’s a few more pictures from that series that should pop up in future letters. The bacon is long gone (in fact, I haven’t made any in years), but was notable at the time since its expiration date was that of the Mayan Apocalypse, which seems to have been long forgotten about now!

    Are you the squirrel that steals the bird food from next door and then sits on our wall eating it? If it is you, I might stop barking at you. But I might not.
