G Is For…

It’s time to play a little Scrabble with my photo archive, as The Nest continues on with its Photography A to Z Challenge!  I’m doing each letter of the alphabet in order every Tuesday, and this week we’re already up to the last letter used on the musical scale as well as the last letter that would fit in Hooked on Phonics‘ infamous toll free number, the letter G!  While I start hunting up pictures of G thangs, you can take yet another look at the two rules I’m holding myself to for this challenge…

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

Let’s see what G’s got going….

The always underappreciated GARBAGE MAN.  You may think his job stinks, but he gets to pick through all the neat shit you thought was trash…

Mitzi looks quite sophisticated wearing her GLASSES, don’t you think?

That GIRL better be careful walking up to that wild GOOSE

The price for a GALLON of regular unleaded GAS in the Midwest back in September 2011.  At least something’s gotten better since then…

GRAFFITI some hooligans spray painted on my backyard fence right before I moved in.

A GIRAFFE at the zoo…


My GARAGE, which is nowhere near that clean after 8 years of junk piling up…

A shiny GOLDEN squirrel figurine that I managed to break before I even got it home…


A squirrel in the GRASS….. or at least, what passes for grass at The Nest.

A gigantic statue of a baseball GLOVE in Minneapolis.  Don’t ask me why….

View from inside GATE 3 at Busch Stadium, looking out at the iconic statue of Stan Musial.

Hopefully you made it through today’s post full of G photos.  If not, may Ody’s GLOWING eyes haunt you for the rest of the day!  The A to Z challenge will really go to H next Tuesday….

  1. Mitzi you look great… like a lawyer or a tax-girl :o) g brings some nice things, like greenies or grenades… or guccY… (they have no google or autocorrect in china)

    • I’ll bet Mitzi has a few GuccY purses that go with her glasses. I’ll be the Mama would have a blast shopping with The Mitz and an unlimited credit card….

    Woohoo, Mitzi’s “librarian” look 🙂

  3. Now those are some great “G’s”……..somehow I would have expected Mitzi in a G-string rather than the glasses but then again that would appeal to a whole OTHER type of audience.


    • I need to find something that would work as a G string for Mitzi… which won’t be easy since she’s a big girl and has thunder thighs. Maybe I can come up with it by the time I get to S for Striptease…

      • Ahh…..considering your talent for “Mitzi-decorating” I should imagine you will come up with SOMETHING appropriate for Mitzi to celebrate the letter “S”!

  4. Did you use GLUE to fix that golden squirrel?

    Dude, I’m so impressed with your alphabet pictures. I really am my friend! XOXO – Bacon

    I was really hoping for a g-string…

  7. ody…dood….BEST lazer eye stare down…ever !!!!!! 🙂 ♥♥

  8. Nice to see a Glorified Garbageman. They don’t get a lot of honors.

    • The hoarder in me has always been a bit envious of their job since people throw away the neatest stuff. Heck, my house is practically furnished from things people threw out…

  9. Ladybuggz says:

    You missed ” Grocery” receipt that Mitsy was Googling while wearing Glasses! 🙂

    • Funny how I still don’t think of Mecca as a grocery store, although that’s what it’s practically become. I think people might pay to see….. er, hear Mitzi read a grocery receipt…

      • Ladybuggz says:

        Lol… It is weird getting groceries,a lawn mower and underwear at the same time! I’m sure people will/would pay for Mitzi to read a Mecca grocery receipt!lol..

    Mitzi looks great in her glasses!

    I chuckled over your “grass”, not that mine is any more grassy. I have a few areas that are pretty weed infested and my front yard is almost entirely moss.

    • They look amazing well on her, and I think she’s the only one of my gang they’ll fit. They’re prop glasses that were left out for associates to wear for some Harry Potter event we had at Mecca when one of the movies came out on DVD. They look bad on Harry, but very cute on Mitzi!

  11. Oddy’s eyes are pawsome. Hope we get to see what he’s lasered lately. 😎
