ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " J "



Today we are at the letter " J ".
I seem to have posted quite a JUMBLE of " J " words.
Did you ever see such JUMBO eyes on a frog?
JUST JOKING.
He isn't real.
If you JABBED him he would pop!



I think someone was a bit JIGGLY when they painted the
emblem on this old truck.
I guess it stands for the elephant
called JUMBO.
If we were going to use the Swahili word for hello we could say...
JUMBO to JUMBO. The hello word is pronounced JAWMBO.
Kind of JAZZY sounding, isn't it?



When we visited fellow blogger Wanda at Lake Tahoe , she
suggested we take a look at a carving on the way back to the main road.
Perhaps someone used a JACK KNIFE to cut the full figure
of JOE Montana.
This is a pretty good likeness carved from JUST one tree.
He was the moving force on the San Francisco 49ers Football Team.
JOE led the team on a wonderful JOURNEY to victory.




JACK Sparrow, from the Pirates of the Carribean seems to
be living the JOIE DE VIORE at Disneyland.
I would say he's a JAUNTY likeness of JOHNNY Depp.
Be sure to JOIN the other bloggers and enJOY their posts
for the letter " J ".
JUST JAB the ABC link on my sidebar.

Well, I had to enlarge the pirates to see the resemblance to Depp. Very good! But that guy on the left looks more like a stray leprechaun than a pirate. I love the frog, so he's a balloon?

Life with Kaishon said...

Wow. He does look like Jonny! Awesomesauce! I love how creative and fun you are. You always come up with the best posts! The very best!

"J" to the max. I think the frog is cool too.

Hilary said...

I could have sworn that that frog would JUMP if jabbed. ;) Great photos and always fun descriptions.

Almost looks like a real tree frog, if they bounced. Must have taken some days to carve Joe, such patience, worth a trip to see. Great collection of J.

Just lovely.
I love the carving of Joe Montana! My son wrote to him and sent him a football card for him to sign and got it back with joe's signature 11 months later! I'll have to post about that one day.
