D Is For…

Sure the first three letters always get all the fame and fortune, but the alphabet’s more than just the ABC’s… so that means the Tuesday feature that is Evil Squirrel’s Nest’s Photography A to Z challenge just keeps on rolling along.  Today’s special letter is the grade all of my teachers would have proudly given to my blog had it been a homework assignment, D!

The well-worn rules of this challenge…

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

And now it’s time to go digging for D’s!

DAD sitting behind a table full of DOLLARS.  Unfortunately, Dad’s not doing too well right now… making the timing of this post extremely awkward for me.  But I love this photo and I love my Dad, so I have to include it…

A DOG digging in the trash on my street…

If you prefer mutts of the more vicious type, a couple of my Mom’s DACHSHUNDS.

Some of my city’s finest criminals cleaning out the nasty DITCH in my backyard that is a huge pain in the ass I inherited when I bought my nest…

DUCT TAPE really can be used for anything!  From re-upholstering cat-clawed chairs….

…to silencing chatty bimbocorns.

Minnesota Twins pitcher Scott DIAMOND chooses DRAMA…. shouldn’t you?  I don’t know why I love this scoreboard shot so much…. it could be my unabashed love for the awesome “My Humps“…


DARTH VADER.  Which Darth do you prefer?

How many people have a picture of a skunk eating DORITOS?

A DOLPHIN at the park.  It’s not a real dolphin, of course…

This is, however, a real DUCK in my backyard.

My DAFFODILS, made all the more prettier by Pretty Kitty.

The house next to me with the DOOR kicked off sometime in the Summer of 2012 (Note the DROUGHT conditions) when it was vacant.  The previous owners kept returning to steal more shit out of it after getting foreclosed on…

My freshly rocked DRIVEWAY, a make-up gift from the city after the ditch misadventure seven years ago I linked to up above.  Most of the rock’s already been run back into the ground…

DIRECTV DISH on top of the house across the ditch from me (Also vacant at the time) which would occasionally appear in the background of some of my squirrel photos.

Majestic wild DIK DIKS.  No giggling, please!

Bashful’s DRAWING of a unicorn wasn’t the best thing in the world.  I didn’t make fun of him, but my critters sure did…

And if you made it through my tribute to the letter D, then please let my sister get a DRINK for you!  Come back next Tuesday for a bunch of E photos that promise to be excellent…

    I begin to worry about what’s in that drink…
    Hope your dad will be okay.

  2. Hmm…..I’ll take the Vader type of Darth thank you since I must choose! I too hope your Dad will be alright. I’m not sure I’d be so quick to take that drink your sister is offering up though – the phrase “if looks could kill” or maybe “ice cubes usually don’t have tails” comes to mind!


  3. the letter D is just fabulous… dogs who dig in drash, drinks, dads and duct tape… the stuff what holds the world together… umm I mean dogether :o)

    You live in an interesting part of the world, with criminals rightening your garden and your former neighbours breaking into their former home …

    • The fun never ends in Nestville. I’m sure many more strange things will make their way into this challenge before I run out of letters since it seems like my street has seen just about everything so far..

  6. Damn! That was entertaining. Thank you for clarifying that the dolphin wasn’t real! Dreadful news about your Dad – hope things start to improve! 🙂

  7. guyz…….we R sorree ta heer bout yur dad….we haz all 984 paws crossed him getz better soooper quik N stayz that way ~~~~~~ ♥♥

  8. I hope your dad will be okay. Dad is the biggest of the big Ds.

    Best wishes to your dad. I hope he feels better soon. The letter D is a wonderful letter. So many brilliant letters come to my mind so quickly… some four lettered words at that – snorts with piggy laughter. Poor Bashful…the little guy really needs hands. XOXO – Bacon

    • For a guy who doesn’t have any hands, the ladycritters at the Nest were sure complaining about getting goosed while he was here! Maybe Bashful has telekinetic properties!

      • Piglove says:

        That explains everything! That’s how those rocks get around here at the Hotel Thompson. They are always showing up in different places getting into trouble. XOXO – Bacon

    Dik, Dik….?? Giggle,Giggle….Hope your dad is doing better…… 🙂

  11. Trisha says:

    Sorry, I had to giggle about the Dik Diks! As usual you were very creative in coming up with photos for the letter of the week. I’m really sorry to hear that your dad isn’t doing very well. I hope he gets better soon.
