Saturday Scavenger Shots #52 (red)

September 22, 2008

Late, but still done.  Tara hit us with red for the week….colors are nice and easy.

Red lights will stop you in your tracks

So will the folks’ tomatoes….

It is fun doing the 52nd scavenger hunt.  Thanks for being patient with my lateness.

Saturday Scavenger Shots #51 (hairy)

September 13, 2008

I had previously mentioned this would be a photo post and it will be.  Mrs Hairy Woman aka babybull, picked “hairy” as this week’s word.  Very apropos I say.  I did some thinking on the subject before I came up with the idea.  I have done a ton of animals, those are hairy.  I have a lot of friends who still have long hair, those would be hairy as well.  BUT, I have mentioned several times in the past that I used to be a long haired dude myself.  I have never posted a photo of me with the metal locks–the tease is over, I shall post the metal boy himself, with his metal hair from back in the day…..

Here I am back in about 1992 or so…complete with mean metal part, smiley face with bullet in head T-shirt and the metal face.  I had no hair on my face back then…that was about 8 years away at the point of the photo.  Hopefully, this is hairy enough for the word.

It is fun incriminating myself.  It is fun heading into the 52nd week of the scavenger hunt.  Thanks for stopping by and hopefully it was not too hairy a situation for you.


Saturday Scavenger Shots #50 (one)

September 6, 2008

One of the newer entrants into the Saturday Scavenger Hunt selected this week’s word.  K_sra was the one I speak of and she selected “ONE” as the word this week.  There are a number of different ways to attack this word, but I have chosen only one way to do it this week.  The word one has a lot of meaning this weekend for me personally……

You see, it was almost exactly one year ago today that me and Renee started dating officially. Our actual anniversary is on Monday the 8th, but what a nice way to remember the occasion a couple of days early

In that one year, me and Renee have had a lot of great times and great moments.

We have been one hell of a couple over the last one year.

So happy one year anniversary my angel….I love you my one and only!!!! You are the one who won my heart….I look forward to many more wonderful years with you.

It is fun doing the scavenger hunt, as always……it is also fun making everybody sick and showing off my softer side.  Thanks for stopping in one and all and thanks Renee for being my girl.   You all are number one with me.


Saturday Scavenger Shots #49 (blue)

August 30, 2008

This week’s word was brought to us by my Alien Brother. He chose the example word I chose almost a year ago to introduce this little thing–he selected “BLUE”.  I have new photos for this one even though I could have gone with reruns.  This will not be blue like the other night’s list, nor will it be sad and blue, but rather the color blue.

Here is my favorite blue hat.  When I am not wearing the cruddy black hat I wear this one.

Here is an array of blue shirts.  I work in an office and these are a weekly staple in business boy’s wardrobe.

Here is my favorite picture of the week…..no caption necessary.

It is always fun doing this little thing called the hunt.  It is fun jamming to the blues.  Thanks for stopping by today, hope I blew you away!!


Saturday Scavenger Hunt #48 (animal)

August 23, 2008

I tagged churlita for this week’s word and she chose “animal”. This was a really easy word for me to do because I have a ton of photos that qualify. All of this week’s are scans of photos I have taken in multiple trips to the Cleveland Zoo and Sea World (when it was still around). Also, we are a mere 4 weeks away from Scavenger Hunt #52….one year, who knew it would take and last this long. Thank you all. Finally, we have two new players this week…let’s welcome and visit Renee and k_sra because they are in and have posted.

These are called lorikeets and they are at the Cleveland Zoo. You can get up close to them and actually feed them.

These are the official bird of the city of Parma (where the Alien lives). These are not the plastic statues that you see in front lawns.

This little, well-dressed fellow used to call Sea World home.

I used to really like Sea World because they had the glare-free tanks that would give an underwater view of the animals. Here, of course, is a dolphin.

This guy isn’t begging or nothing…….

Here is probably the most famous Killer Whale on the planet. Shamu used to live at Sea World in Aurora, OH.

In this shot, I was not really that close. I have a 1000mm zoom lens for my film camera which was used to take all of these photos. Funny how we have to specify film camera vs digital camera now.

This is one of my favorite shots despite the turkey who got in my way. This was the only head on shot that I have gotten of a koala.

It is always fun doing the Saturday Scavenger Hunt. It is always fun adding new people to the list. Thanks for taking a tour through my virtual zoo and not feeding the virtual animals.


Saturday Scavenger Shots #47 (black)

August 16, 2008

I got the word this week and surprisingly chose a word like “black”. I thought it a versatile word and a word that could easily be used in 100 different ways. It was. Here are all new photos for the hunt this week. Let black Saturday begin.

Here is my black back pack.  This is one of the best things I own and it practically goes everywhere with me.

What office worker could survive without a pair of black shoes.  These are Doctor Martins wing tipped...very comfortable

Finally, how about the black of night....this is one of those things I can do with the new camera that I could not do with the old.

Who is being tagged this week? How about churlita, Cricket tagged her a couple of weeks ago but she was out on the open road. It’s all yours churlita.

It is fun doing the Scavenger Hunt and choosing the word. Thanks for stopping in at the new place and not black listing me.
