I Is For…

Welcome to another Tuesday filled with photos I wouldn’t be sharing today had someone put the alphabet in a different order.  It’s time for edition number nine, number nine, number nine of The Nest’s Photography A to Z challenge!  Today’s letter promises to knock me right between the I’s… so while I recover, you can read the rules for this challenge that you probably can recite from memory now…

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

I, I Captain.  This one ain’t gonna be easy, but I’m gonna give it my best shot…

ICICLES hanging off the house next door a few winters ago.

An IDIOT on his IPHONE in my backyard.  OK, I don’t know if that’s actually an iPhone or not… but he is an idiot, as a community service punishment is why he’s having to clean out my ditch.

Nine INCHES of snow that fell back in January 2011.  That’s a big snowstorm for us…

This young lady in front of me at the ballpark has some INK advertising to the world that she is INDEPENDENT.  The crown is a nice touch, but remember folks…. tattoos are artwork, not literature… and should be seen and not read.

Biskit INSIDE of the basket!  A laundry hamper, actually…

The Cleveland INDIANS getting hammered as they typically have when I have watched them.  Hey, at least Luis Valbuena still has a career in Major League Baseball, unlike most of the other players in those lineups from 2009…

An ITCHY squirrel in my backyard tree.

Yes, that’s Cousin ITT and Thing from The Addams Family looking over Buster’s dead body.  A scene from the very first edition of Shelf Critter Theatre…

This way to ILLINOIS, so I know I’m heading home.

IMO’S PIZZA is an ICON in the St. Louis area since people around here have come to like their pizza to be served on a cracker

A seal on an ISLAND!  If you think I’m playing I pretty fast and loose, just wait until the letters start getting to be real fun…

If you made it through these imitation images of the letter I, then let me treat you to some shaved ICE from my trusty sno cone maker that has helped me get through the past 14 summers.  Careful not to eat it too fast, or you’ll get brain freeze and won’t be able to fully enjoy my try at J walking next Tuesday…

  1. I’m glad only ITT is with you… imagine IT from stephen kings story would live with you…. awww scary… I (-diots)is also for all cardrivers who are on the streets when the mama is behind the wheel… wonder why they only are around is if the mama drives … a miracle…or an I-llusion…

    I do a great Cousin It impersonation…

    I’s everywhere! Who knew.

  4. Oh a sno-cone maker – I need to add that to my Christmas list…..! As for your EYES – well done – my fave is the itchy squirrel.


    • I see a lot of itchy squirrels, but it’s so hard to capture them actually scratching. They can move those legs faster than a hummingbird’s wings, I swear!

      A sno cone maker is a MUST anywhere it’s hot! All you need is ice and syrup, and you’ve got instant heat relief!

    Oh my evil friend – you are doing brilliantly. “I” is awesome. Can’t wait to see what you do with Q and X – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    If everyone in your social group is getting a tattoo & you follow the crowd and get one, too– then how inappropriate is it to have the word “independent” written on your body? Asking for a friend.

    • I think you know the answer to that just as well as I do. I wonder why it is still considered the “rebellious” thing to do when in fact tattoos have become one of the ultimate hipster trends of the new millennium…

  7. ody N biskit……act shoo a lee thiz iz a grate post two day !!!!! ya did way better N we wooda with “I”… we wooda cheeted N went with R list oh: common fish namez A ~~ Z 🙂 ♥♥

  8. You should have some interesting pics the further along the alphabet you get. Good luck!

  9. The J is pretty daunting. Although you can be Jaunty while Jogging down the … I can’t think of a roadway that starts with J, but I’m sure you’ll come up with something. Also, get ready for the X. It’s a killer!

    • I’ve already got at least four pics I can use for X. I’m a bit more worried about Q and Z, and that occasional letter that’s trickier than it may seem, like Y…

    You did pretty good ! Can’t wait for “J” and the old hard ones! 🙂

    I’m impressed you came up with so many I pictures. My favorite is Biskit inside the basket. Cats are so weird. My cat Sassafras seemed to enjoy being trapped under the laundry basket, which lead to a new nickname for her – Incarce-afras. Hey, speaking of incarceration, why didn’t you visit the local prison for some pictures? 😃
