C Is For…

It’s time for The Nest’s Tuesday trot through the alphabet in my Photography A to Z series I am challenging myself to.  This is episode number three, so today it’ll be photos as far as the eye can C!  As usual, I am holding myself to the two rules I established at the outset of this exhibit…

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

I’m sure I have a lot of good C material in my archive, and I guess I may as well start with perhaps the most obvious one of all…

CATS!  Here are my two of mine going toe to toe with a stray through the window…

My CAR.  It already looks like it’s seen better days in that photo, and I took it eight years ago!

When my chest freezer needed a new COMPRESSOR, the parts company sent me this for the repairman to install.  If you missed the fucked up tale behind how I had to once go six weeks without a freezer due to mass incompetence on the part of everyone involved, take a few minutes to have a laugh at my expense!

CANDLES at the altar of MBRS.  This is the kind of stuff that happens when The Nest goes without power for a good part of the night…

Neighborhood hooligans CHILDREN playing in the nasty, muddy ditch in my backyard and flinging that disgusting ass sludge everywhere it shouldn’t be.  I am a bad person because I can’t stand children…

Sadly, I did not get a picture of the zoo’s CAPYBARA since it wasn’t out and about, but I did get the sign in front of its jail cell.

Is that CABBAGE in that gorilla’s mouth?  I don’t know, but it’s my post so I say it’s cabbage…

My squirrels love the CORN I feed them…

I’m kicking myself for forgetting to use this last week, but that’s a bird on that CHAIR in the dining area of the overpass McDonald’s in Vinita, Oklahoma.  They were flying around all over the place inside of there during this visit.

My Oklahoma friend’s dog Lizbit in CAMOUFLAGE.

A playing CARD in Mitzi’s mouth, announcing the random winning in my most recent Contest of Whatever.

Neat looking CLOUD I took a picture of at a ballgame I went to last August.

CHEWBACCA!  I accidentally wound up at Star Wars night when I went to see baseball in Minnesota…

Smile for the CAMERA!

Ody and Spilly enjoying my COUCH I rescued from an alley.  High CLASS all the way, that’s me…

Squirrel COOKIES I made for Christmas of 2009.  Thankfully, my baking days are long over since my oven went kaput…

Hand-painted CANISTERS created by a friend of The Nest…


No CHURCH for me, thanks.  I’d be struck by lightning…

I sure did find a lot of C pictures… so as a reward for plowing through all of my photos today, please help yourself to some of Uncle Snuggie’s CANDY!  It won’t kill you……… hopefully, because I want you to return for the letter D next Tuesday!

Edited in a day late and a dollar short……

How in the hell did I forget my CORNHOLING in CLEVELAND photo!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  1. oh candy would be my n°1 and the cids aka kildren are also not my cup of tea… and so not part of my circus

  2. This is a good C story. And yes, it is a cabbage leaf. You get spagetti in a church?

    I’m a bad person, too. I am glad the next generation is all grown up and now, what do those f*ckers do? Yes, you get it, they procreate and change poor auntie into poor old grandauntie!

    • LOL, they should be severely punished for this!

      • franhunne4u says:

        Oh, alright, poor only in being reminded of my age (and thereby of my mortality). After all my couch was not collected from the street. But my bed (apart from the matress) is second hand and my kitchen furniture stems from the sixties. And my living room cupboard is older than I am … and second hand, too.

      • franhunne4u says:

        Oh, and btw – they ARE severely punished by this – both my nieces had to go through labour, both had to give birth … and now they have a baby at home with all that shit (and I am using that word in its original meaning) that this contains …

  4. Bird on a chair…that’s a two-fer and ‘c’ompletely negates the ‘c’hildren ‘c’omment. Nice job!

  5. Merbear74 says:

    I love Starburst. I call the cherry ones.

  6. draliman says:

    If you say they’re squirrel cookies, then they’re squirrel cookies.

  7. A fabulous group of “C” photos………one has to wonder about birds flying around in a McDonalds…..I know they use a “special sauce” on their fish sandwich but now I’m wondering just how BIRDISH that special sauce might be….ewwww….also, that IS cabbage Mr. Gorilla has – wonder if he swallowed it whole and if it did to HIM what it does to ME when I eat it. Ahem.

    Onward to “D”!

  10. fanrosa says:

    YAY! for canisters!!!1 I’m expecting to see more handiwork when you get to H….

  11. Excellent Cees.

    That definitely looks like a green cabbage in the gorillas mouth. Who knew gorillas liked raw cabbage?

  12. Ladybuggz says:

    Great “C”ompilation” of “C” Photo’s! That is a pretty”Carnal” “Customer”service on your freezer,quite a “Comedy” funnier then “Crap” but “Contemptible” on who ever sent you that “Compressor” ! :0

  13. Trisha says:

    Little Spilly looks so cute on the end of the couch. You got a lot of awesome things in these C pictures!

    • Yes, and you got to see the Cornholing pic I originally forgot! Not that you really needed to see it again, but it’s such a duh photo for C that I can’t believe I forgot it the first time…
