J Is For…

As we’ve been doing for the past two months, The Nest continues its Tuesday pictorial waltz through the alphabet with Edition X!  No, not the letter X… but another tile that so rarely appeared in print that it was one you wanted to plunk down on a Triple Word Score in Scrabble, and that would be the tenth letter J!  The world famous short rules of The Nest’s Photography A to Z challenge:

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

As if some of the letters aren’t bad enough, Photobucket, the site where I’ve stored images for nine years now, has become a whiny little bitch the last week or so and is making it as hard as humanly to use their site… and that’s made extracting my pictures there a major pain in the ass.  So J will be unJustly short and mostly full of photos I already have uploaded to my blog.  But enough complaining, let’s get it on…

How about we kick things off with this amazing JUMPING squirrel…

Snuggle Bear wearing my JUROR pin from my first tour of JURY DUTY in 2003.  And hanging them high, just as I would if I had the chance (maybe)….

Sign outside the potties along Lake Huron letting park patrons know that the JOHNS are only open during the Summer.  Since it was September 18th, I had to hold it…

Another sign…. this one at the zoo and held within the JAWS of that skull.

Can you spot Sewer Rat’s JINGLE BELL collar?

Who doesn’t like to see themselves on the JUMBOTRON when they go to a sporting event?

A JAR of JIF peanut butter, used as a prop in Part III of my A Christmas Carol parody.

Snuggle Bear and Fuzzywig in JAIL where they belong.  Yes, I am really stretching for these…

Totally 80’s guitar from one of the Holograms in the 80’s doll series JEM.  While it may be truly outrageous, it’s also truly not mine and once belonged to one of my sisters.  I’m not that weird…

A mounted JACKALOPE head my Oklahoma friend had in her living room.  Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure it’s fake…

And if you thought you were going to make it through this post without having to look at a squirrel’s JUNK………. well, you should have known better.

Come back next Tuesday for K, assuming Photofuckit doesn’t send my virtual albums to some server in the middle of Kampuchea…

  1. J can be scary .. like J.R. Ewing or Jack Nicholson in Shining….or annoying like the japanese boy by Aneka

  2. And THIS is why I have my own personal external hard drives. Call me crazy, but I’ve just seen this from various cloud buckets too often to trust any of them. Which reminds me that I really really should back my stuff up again. It’s that time of month. Hey ho!

    J is hard, but X is a killer.

    • I keep all of my squirrel photos on a flash drive (Though that was mainly to keep them at original resolution since sometimes PB automatically shrinks your pics), so no chances taken with them. Then again, the cats could always eat the memory stick and I’m right back where I started….

    I had a Gem doll and I think also that guitar! The music was contagious…just like herpes…

    I’m disappointed with the juror badge. I would have thought it would be one of those “HELLO! My name is…” ones. Just to break the ice while you’re debating the future of some poor (alleged) felon.

    • No names allowed. If you end up on a jury, you get a number. It’s kinda like being a secret agent, only you’re not allowed to try and bring down the bad guy yourself…

        I am not a number, I am a free man! No, your Honour, a night in the cells doesn’t sound pleasant. Yes, your Honour, I’ll sit down and be quiet now.

  6. Shouldn’t the comment you made “hang em high” have been associated with that last photo of Mr. Squirrel barely able to walk across the road with his baggage???????

    Mom’s been having the same problem with Photobucket. Now back to your junk. OMP! Lowers head and walks away. Some squirrels get all the luck – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Once again I am impressed by your creativity in coming up with subjects to fit the letter. My favorites are that adorable shot of Sewie and the squirrel jumping. I wish Jackalopes were real and that the bunny that’s been visiting my backyard was one. It needs antlers or a big knife or something to survive around here.
