ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " A "



Welcome to # 7 of ABC Wednesday .
Its time to travel through the ALPHABET AGAIN, beginning with the letter " A ".
My first picture is of the AWESOME ARTERY clogging burger
from the burger joint called Squeeze Inn.
They put the cheese on the meat in such AN ARTFUL way.
It makes A skirt of yummy fried cheese AROUND the entire burger.
I ABSOLUTELY loved every greasy, juicy bite AND won't have ANOTHER one for a very long time.
I don't know if my ARTERIES could take it.



On A walk AT the Maidu Indian grounds I noticed this great fence.
I loved the way the construction made A series of capital A's.



It seems AFRICA is ALWAYS on my mind these days.
Perhaps you would like to stay AT this transit hotel?
The sign says ACCOMODATIONS ARE AVAILABLE.
Its hard to know what's behind the walls though.



AWWWWW.....
This is A sweet little guy named Cimmeron.
At least that's what it sounded like.
He was ALWAYS happy and APPRECIATIVE
of ANY ATTENTION we gave him.
ANOTHER team from our church is ACTUALLY
visiting him and the Maasai tribe Today.
I guess that's why my thoughts keep straying back to my beloved AFRICA.
Be sure to enlarge the pictures to see things in better detail.

Sylvia K said...

What a marvelous post for the A Day! I love your photos of Africa and the little one is adorable. As for that yummy looking cheeseburger, I think I'd better be glad that it is out of reach! I can already hear the arteries screaming! Have a great week! Enjoy!

How fun to start on Round 7 ABC. Love your pictures. My arteries jumped when I saw the "Cheese" burger.... Love how you find "A's" everywhere. And who could not love that little African face!

Carolyn Ford said...

What a burger! I'm with Sylvia...good thing it is out of reach! Your photos of Africa are beautiful. I would love to visit that amazing continent. What a cute little boy...

RuneE said...

You do stretch the A: from the Arteryblogging burger to Africa. Africa won :-)

Paula Scott said...

What an Awesome way to start off Round 7!

Reader Wil said...

What an attractive little boy! Awsome collection of A words!

Beverley Baird said...

That's a lot of As!

AphotoAday said...

You could have also used the flabulous burger for Y week -- file it under Yummy!

Gramma Ann said...

Oh No, I just changed my way of eating a week or two ago, and that burger looks great. Thanks for the visit, you were the first.

Sandra said...

you have a true talent for finding fotos that speak the letter of the day. that burger is so delish i am slabbering on my keyboard. my hubby does that fried cheese just like than on left over grits. he puts the squares in the fry pan and adds the cheese and voila cheese grits

Annelie said...

Oooooouuuu, stay away from that burger!
Come with me and drink that coconut instead, I promise, it WAS good. Thank´s for the comment!

These photos are Awesome! I especially like the burger, it's captured in such an interesting way that I don't know if I want to eat it or turn away in disgust, either way it definitely got a response out of me.

LisaF said...

Oh my, that burger looks deliciously sinful. And I don't believe I would stay at the African hotel with Accommodations...no matter how Available they are!

Dimple said...

You found a lot of A's! Absolutely qwesome!

Mara said...

I was wondering about that burger and how you would get an A out of that. Brilliant find though!

Hildred and Charles said...

I thought the burger was a hat when I first caught a glimpse of it, - much more satisfying to eat than a straw hat, - which supplies most roughage I wonder..... Great A's and wonderful pictures of Africa.

Dani said...

Awesome. Amazing shots for A Day. The boy's so adorable.

Thanks for the visit.

Linda said...

I bet that tasted delectable—however— I expect that one can't indulge too often. Maybe 'tis better to just look at the photo.

Fascinating photos of Africa—

Burger! I died and went to heaven. Or just died.

ROG, ABC Wednesday team

Martha said...

I like your A's also.

Life with Kaishon said...

I love little Cimmaron. I just said a prayer for him. What a precious face.

Did I ever tell you that Kaishon wants to go to Africa? He has been begging and pleading since he was about 4 : ) He always tells me that he is part African!

I love that you care and love the people there. You are a blessing and you truly make the world a better place!

Gayle said...

I guess the burger restaurant got its name because you have to "squeeze in" to your clothes after eating that monster. Looks delish! I'll have a scoop of that ice cream you've so cleverly placed in the post below it, too.

Dave said...

Hi Sue. I really do appreciate you inviting me to begin blogging again! I shall have to get going again. Thanks. Keep a watch out! - Dave

Jenn said...

When you talked about Artery Burger... first thing came to mind is that "I don't think my arteries would be happy about that." But... the cheese decoration was good.

My ABC Wednesday is up HERE. Happy Wednesday!

Tumblewords: said...

The cheesiest burger - that does look fancy and I'm doubting a person could handle more than one. :) Clever fencing and darling kiddo.

K(Banterings of a Basketcase) said...

The little guy Cimmaron? has a sweet face- but you had me at skirt of cheese. mmmmm

J Bar said...

That burger look so sinfully delicious!

Reader Wil said...

BTW , my burglar story was partly made up by me. The end was not true.
Sorry...

Siromade said...

What a nice post for letter A, thanks for visiting my site...I like looking the burger looks very yummmy and cheesy...feel like to have a big bite on it.lol

jabblog said...

Marvellous sequence of As and very varied - well done :-)

Paul F said...

When we lived in San Francisco, we would often make the trip to the Sacramento area (my son was in school at Davis) and I always wanted to try the Squeeze Inn (I had seen it featured on the Food Network), but my wife feared for my heart health and would always veto the trip.

Wonderful imagery -- maybe I can use it to convince her otherwise!

Gattina said...

An A full nice post !

LD said...

Another brilliant collection! Don't know how you manage to weave those all together. Maybe there's an A-Z book in there somewhere?

Ruth said...

From the Artery clogger to the Awesome boy from Africa, you stole my heart. And I don't even eat meat any more! :)

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Wow you have done well with the A's. Great choices. A

Joy said...

I can feel my arteries hardening just by looking at your burger. It would go nicely with the Tusker beer at the hotel.

Jay at The Depp Effect said...

What a cute face! I bet he'd like the hamburger, too!

kml said...

I love cheese and I bet that burger is one of the best - it certainly looks it! How artistic that fence is - and that little face is precious!

onangelwings said...

What a great group of A pictures. Great way to start the newest round.

Cheryl said...

Great selections of eye candy As! That burger? Eek!

Jingle said...

Luckaa said...

Great!
Mnam for the cheesburger.

Carol said...

Wonderful photos. One has to indulge in absolutely decadent foods every once in awhile, and that burger looks like it would fill the bill in every way.

Serline said...

OMG! That burger is indeed scary! Keep away... ;-P Have a blessed weekend!

Leo said...

Hilary said...

Oh my.. that burger looks... Awful! (sorry, Sue... it just doesn't appeal) but that little Cimmeron.. now he looks absolutely delicious! I love your A fences too.
