ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " B "



Another week has flown BY and it's time for ABC Wednesday.
Today's letter is " B ".
I'll BET you haven't a clue where I am going with the B  theme.

Frankly I'm not too sure either.
(:0)
The first photo is entitled:

The BLACK Ants BURIAL Grounds In The BATHTUB.

We have BEEN plagued BY these critters lately.
Some ants, I guess, were seeking water and going up the
BATHROOM tile.
I sprayed and cleaned up the BUNCH of persistant pests.
The tub was absolutely clean.
The next morning this was what I saw....
Piles of Dead Ants all over the BOTTOM of the tub.
Where did they come from?
Why were they all dead and scattered around?

Tis a mystery and a perfect BEGINNING to my "B" post.



I like this slightly BLURRY  BUNCH of  BLUE  BALLOONS.
BE
sure to enlarge the photos for more detail.



Here is an update photo of my Hubby's BURN.
Thanks for all of your concern.
As you can see, it is healing BEAUTIFULLY.

If you go BACK a few posts you can see what it looked like in
late December.



Any BODY for some BANJO lessons?

BE sure to go to the link on my side BAR to see what others have
posted for ABC Wednesday.

I am so glad his burn is doing well, it does look like it is healing. The ants are a real mystery!!! Here, we have black ants that are flying ants and have a very short season, a few weeks. They flew in our window tiny cracks, they can get in any tiny hole or crack. Maybe they flew in your bathroom and landed in the tub and the Clorox fumes killed them! Or they could have just been on a mass suicide mission. LOVE the balloons!

Oh Sue, you are tops! It is so much fun to follow wherever you take us! I would have never guessed what the first pictures was all about. I tried. Hard. No chance. What a mess, though! ;-)

So good to see your husband's burns are healing alright. All the best!

Hugs,
Merisi

Ants are a pest we have to deal with now and then too...grrrrr
Love the balloons and so glad your hubby's arm is healing nicely....still looks hurtful.

LC said...

That was a bad burn. Glad it is healing. Best wishes dealing with mystery ants. The disney balloons really were striking when I clicked to enlarge.Your banjo photo really "rounded" out a diverse group of interesting shots.

LC said...

P.S. Getting together at Black Bear Diner sounds wonderful. I hope another trip out west is in our future!

Wanda said...

I feel a novel coming..."Bodies in the Bathtub".... HaHa.. Love it, and have been there!!! Spiders love my bathtub...

Great Bunch of B pictues. Got company, gotta hurry while she's getting a pedicure.

I am so glad he is getting better! I was really worried about that burn. I love your balloon picture. Beautiful! I can't get over those ants. My parents used to have them every summer. They drove my Mom crazy!

Some great B`s! I never guess that first photo, but I like these artistic-

Roger Owen Green said...

The burns are BETTER but I BET they still hurt a bit.

I LOVE the BLACK ant BURIAL!

What a boo-boo that burn must have been...love the balloons...but would not want those ants around! Have a great week.

a lot of bs and all fun.

Hildred and Charles said...

Something in the spray those ants didn't like! Balloons are beautiful, and glad your husband's burn is healing.

bettyl said...

Lots of great B's. Lovely shots. Glad Hubby is healing.

Carver said...

I'm glad your husband is healing. The balloons are beautiful and colorful. I have a similar ant situation in the summer but mine come in around the faucet in my kitchen.

MoM from Manila said...

I also get slight burns a lot because of cooking.

The Mickey Mouse balloons are awesome especially when I have them enlarged, great shot!

Shady Gardener said...

This was a fun post... loved the balloons. Not sure about those ants, though. :-) Happy day!

Hazel Ceej said...

The burial in the bathtub cracked me up. Healing beautifully - what a positive, wonderful way of putting it. Glad it is.

Your burn looks very painful.

I imagine the ants were dead because you'd burned them with bleach.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful set of choices.

Joy said...

Yikes, you never want to see ants indoors. I find the banjo sign very tempting.

Laloofah said...

I know none of us want them inside our house with us, but still - poor little ants! Wonder what they were trying to do? Come in from the cold? Get a drink? I agree with a couple of other commenters that if you cleaned with bleach, the residue or fumes probably did them in. (That stuff is toxic to critters and people alike!)

The balloons are so fun and beautiful! I love those!

I'm glad your hubby's burn is healing, those are so terribly painful and his was a doozy!

My husband has an old vintage banjo - bummer that neither of us know how to play it! We should sign up for those lessons! :-)

Ann said...

Oh I HATE ant problems. Seems every spring they want to stay at my house. Hope your mystery is solved soon.

LONDONLULU said...

Oh, I love your B choices! And I would've never guessed what that first photo was (I hope the mystery dead ants haven't appeared again:). Hope your hubby's arm is healing well. Thank you for dropping by, happy it led me here!

Mai said...

i love the balloon photo, very unique. and i'm glad your hubby's burn is healing well, must have been painful. love your post.

Jesh St Germain said...

You had a lot of B's:) Hope the ants stay away from now on! Thanks for your visit!

Dave said...

Hi Sue. Yes, ants can be a pest when they begin to invade our space. I am happy to let them be, outside, but they get extermination treatment if they dare to venture inside - Dave.

Melanie Boudwin said...

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comment. I'm glad your husband's burn is healing well. It looks from both pictures like it was a very painful one.

Ahh ants! One of my mom's all-time favorite books is Henry's Awful Mistake, a children's story about a duck named Henry who does a series of desperate acts to get rid of an ant in his house. I'm certain ants in the house make my mom feel crazy in a similar way but, thankfully, she keeps her head about it (mostly). *smile*
