ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " J "



Our letter for Wednesday is " J ".
The JOINT is really JUMPING with the JOVIAL music from the JUKEBOX.
Don't you think it would be fun to have a JOB as a soda JERK in this place?
You would probably have to speak the JARGON of the 50's to be in style.



I love the JOLLY orange color of this JAZZY JALOPY.



I guess the owners didn't want
to JUNK this JAUNTY old oven so they just made a planter out of it.
The Detroit JEWEL oven bakes best...or so it says.
Enlarging any of these pictures will give you more detail.




The Blue Angels made their JET PROPELLED JOURNEY through the sky.
The JETS went through their paces at amazing speeds and dexterity.
JUMP on over to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar to see what others have JOTTED DOWN about their posts for the letter " J ".

wow on the jet shot! make that TWO Wows!!
the stove is wonderful to me because i love old things. soooo pretty.
But my Favorite for today is the blast from the past with the jukebox. i spent many happy hours in a place just like this, on top of Alpine Hill in Sloans Valley KY when I was 14 and 15. we got 5 song for a quarter and would buy a 10 cent coke and sit for hours listening. thanks for the memories.

I love that jukebox and old stove. You find the most interesting things and alphabetize them so well. That action shot of your Blue Angels (much like our Snowbirds) is fantastic. And who could resist an orange jalopy?

LC said...

You may have to change the name of your blog. Your skills have definitely surpassed the "wannabe" stage. The jets against the clouds with that dynamic curve are awesome. I am so envious! Love others, too, especially the stove.

What terrific Js for the Day! Love that colorful blast from the past! How fun! I agree with LC, you passed "photowannabe" some time ago as far as I'm concerned!! Marvelous captures! Enjoy the rest of your week!

What a lovely jukebox and jolly post for J!

My ABC Wednesday

Another awesome post of J words! I love your style. That 50s joint reminds me of a place we have near here where we go and put quarters in the jukebox and listen to the music of the 50s while we eat hamburgers and fries. Have a wonderful week! :D

Gramma Ann said...

I love the fifty's theme, that was when I was a teen-ager. We had a lot of fun dancing to the music on those Jukeboxes. And the ice cream sodas are to die for. Those were the days, I thought they would never end.

RuneE said...

It is always a Joy to see your photos and what letters you have collected. This time the Jets win with me.

Kansas Bob said...

Those Jets really Jazz me!

Even the word verification is in step asking me to enter "joites". :)

Reader Wil said...

Jolly, jaunty jukebox jumping around! Great J words. I like all your photos!

Maddy said...

How cool!! I love Alphabet photo walks :) It's a great way to exercise those brain muscles!

Willa said...

I love the Jukebox and the Jet!

Mike said...

The blue angels shot is so perfectly composed!!! Like it :)

Ginny said...

Wow!! Any one of these photos would make a great whole separate post! Don't know how you caught those planes moving so fast! Bev told me she is on her way to see you in a few days, I hope you have a great visit! I babysit her granddaughter, so we get to see each other kind of regularly. she's a sweet person.

EG Wow said...

WOW! You sure did find a ton of Js! Amazing that you were able to find a jukebox!

Joy said...

I wonder if they keep their gardening tools in the planter oven. Love the jukebox chintz. Great collection of photographs, superb when enlarged.

Carver said...

You did a great job with the letter J. All of these are such good choices.

Tumblewords: said...

Your full of J's post brings a big smile - I'm trying to remember enough of the 50's jargon to apply for an old soda jerkess, just to listen to the juke box! Great post!

Jabacue said...

You are so clever!

Roger Owen Green said...

WOW, hear the Chuck Berry right now: "Well, the joint was rockin'..." (or is iot "jumpin'" - I forget...

You astound me! Truly! What a great collection of gorgeous images Sue!

Jama said...

I love that oven planter, a great idea of reusing unwanted utensils!

Wanda said...

Love your "J's"! That stove is great, and the jets, what a lovely shot. Last round, I used Juke Boxes for J.

Beverley Baird said...

What great choices for J! Love the jiving jukebox! I can remember those!

Carol said...

What fun! Enjoyed your J post and photos.

Kate said...

The jukebox is a trip back in time. The jet photo is spectacular.

Rajesh said...

Amazing list of words and shots.

Gayle said...

Fantastic shot of the jets. The Blue Angels come to town next weekend and I can't wait to watch them. Always a thrill.

mrsnesbitt said...

I have a friend who is a dealer of juke boxes and I must admit we think about getting one from time to time! I love the times we get the old records (CD's now) out and have a good session! My favourite being Lonnie Donnoghan!

Cheryl said...

I loved that stove and how it's been repurposed. Just saw the BA's a couple of weeks ago. Got over 300 photos of the airshow. Just couldn't help myself.

John Roberts said...

Cool hot rod shot!!!

jabblog said...

I love the most unusual planter!

Gattina said...

Ah, a Jukebox ! Unfortunately they disappear little by little !

Xavi said...

Thank you for your kind comment!
I have hard to write when I travel, but I do what I can from the hotel.
What a difference from the jukebox and the iPod now, before it was more fun!
Have a nice day!

Mama Zen said...

Well done! The Blue Angels are amazing!

Paula Scott said...

Wow! What eye popping examples of j's! I love the soda joint! Cool jet shot too. Oh, and the stove...geez. What a wonderful post!

Amy said...

I like the jukebox the most Sue! Those were the good old days!!!

Ann said...

Mr. Juke box, please play me" Are you lonely some tonight." You took me to the set of happy days.

Dave said...

Facinating photos Sue. I liked the car and the jet planes. - Dave

Laurie said...

Oh wow great series of photos. The first one reminds me of a neat place called the Chatterbox in North Jersey. Very cool place that is like an old sock hop. Great old fashioned burgers and they have a DJ there daily. Love the jets too...awesome contrails and clouds.

Sorry I've been away so long.

MedaM said...

Interesting choices for letter "J". Last photo took my breath away! Just fantastic!
