H Is For…

It’s Tuesday again, so that means we’re bringing back everyone’s favorite alphabet game since Hangman became politically incorrect.  So here’s edition number eight of The Nest’s Photography A to Z challenge, and this time we really are going to hell with the letter H!  While I go digging through my archive for pixellated etas, you can read my two simple rules for the umpteenth time…

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

OK, are you ready?  Let’s see where the letter H and my camera crossed paths in the past.  And don’t worry, I don’t have any photos of hemorrhoids…

Sure I just used this photo on Saturday, but it’s a squirrel on a HILL, so I can use it again!

My new HOUSE shortly after I signed my life away purchasing it 8 years ago yesterday.  It’s weird to see it without the ever-present collection of dead leaves that have collected all around the perimeter…

Mitzi modeling the tocque HAT that was knitted by my loyal follower Fanny.

This was the one and only photo of a HYENA I was able to get on my visit to the zoo last year.  Alas, I don’t have the same luck as my Mom does taking pictures of yeens…

Apparently I’ve never taken a picture of a real HORSE before, so you’ll have to make do with the Texas Rangers mascot.  I have no idea what his name is, and I don’t want to know.  Come to think of it, he looks like ALF with a mohawk…

Gigantic chunk of HAIL that fell back in a nasty April 2012 storm… fittingly compared with a Travis HAFNER batting practice HOMERUN

A neighbor’s yard all decked out for HALLOWEEN.  Curiously, they never had a single bit of decoration for Christmas…

That is a classic HOOK ECHO that you never want to see on your local weather radar… as it is usually a sign of a potential tornado.

Nice HAIR, dude…

The main entrance of my HOTEL in the suburbs of Cleveland.

This walking HOT DOG is one of the three who race (at least at the time I was there) at Cleveland Indians ballgames.  I actually have a plush of her I won in some stupid contest there, which you’ve never seen before because it’s too hideous for even Shelf Critter Theatre…

My Oklahoma friend’s greyhound Annie HIDING under a blanket.

HISSY FIT sign I bought at a store in Pittsburgh because it reminded me of Spilly.

A HARDWARE store in Squirrel Hill.

And if you made it through all of these H’s without huffing and puffing… then feel free to take a dip in my luxurious HOT TUB that was an unexpected perk of my hotel room in Detroit.  Not all at once now…… people will talk.

Come back next Tuesday to watch me completely fail my I exam…

  4. Okay. Made it through the Aitches. But the eyes, the eyes … they are always treacherous!

    • “Aitch” has got to be the weirdest letter to see “spelled out” like that. It just doesn’t look right…… but, how else could it be spelled? I guess when the letters were getting named, “Hee” and “Hi” were already taken for other words….

    Holy Hot Dog! Is that thing carrying a purse? 😛

    Jeez, was the only way you could a picture of a hyena to tranquillise it? That’s going above and beyond.
    I can’t wait for “S”. Will there be squirrels?

  7. That Squirrel Hill Hardware store says they “sharpen anything” – suppose they sharpen squirrel teeth and claws and maybe that’s why they also do screen repairs? Squirrels do enjoy climbing screens……never mind – once my mind wanders it’s hard to bring it back under control.
