ABC Award!!!!

So my friend over at Beautiful Photographs nominated me for this award.  In return I have to prove that I know the alphabet by thinking of a word for each letter.

I haven’t been real good about replying to awards.  Don’t get me wrong- it’s not that I’m not grateful.  It’s just that I don’t want to impress you with my awards.  I want to impress you with my words and pictures.  But a friend showed me I could look at this differently- as a chance to introduce you to some friends whose blogs I follow.

So I thought I’d respond by tying my words to songs!

A- Albatross (Fleetwood Mac)

B- Bodhisattva (Steely Dan)

C- Candy (Nat King Cole)

D- Dogs (Pink Floyd)

E- Elenore (The Turtles)

F- Fire (Jimi Hendrix)

G- Gypsy (Fleetwood Mac)

H- Help! (The Beatles)

I- Intuition (Jewel)

J- Jet (Paul McCartney and Wings)

K- Kite (U2)

L- Layla (Derek and the Dominoes)

M- Money (Pink Floyd)

N- Neon (John Mayer)

O- Odorono (The Who)

P- Porcelain (Moby)

Q- Question (The Moody Blues)

R- Ramrod (Bruce Springsteen)

S- Sailing (Christopher Cross)

T- Time (The Alan Parsons Project)

U- Under Pressure (Queen with David Bowie)

V- Vaseline (Stone Temple Pilots)

W- War (Edwin Starr)

X- Xanadu (Rush)

Y- Yummy Yummy Yummy (Ohio Express)

Z- Zebulon (Rufus Wainwright)

Now, here’s a few blogs to check out:

Chancy the Gardener

Ten Lives and Second Chances

Cats and Company

Milo and Alfie

Collies of the Meadow

Basset Momma

There!  Top THAT!!!!

  28. Congratulations on your award Rumpy – but I’m far more impressed that you were able to find a song for every letter of the alphabet. That takes determination, but I know you have lots of that.

    Posted by Bongo | February 3, 2012, 12:39 PM
  29. Congratulations on your peer recognition! I can’t believe all the work you did to look up links for every letter this way. That’s so awesome! I the love generic Soda bottle in Intuition. 🙂

  30. Congratulations for your award Rumpy ! Well done with the song titles too. But I agree with Lindy, the best part is your picture at the end ♥

  31. Rumpy, you be DEE MAN! You rock, fella! I can see someone (we won’t say who) giving their age away just a tad with all of this Queen and The Who and Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd in the alphabet soup! Love it, just love it!

    Posted by granbee | February 3, 2012, 1:33 PM
  32. Love it! (Except maybe for your ‘W’ choice–I mean, Good God, what is it good for?)

    Posted by Smaktakula | February 3, 2012, 1:47 PM
  33. Just wanted to stop by and say, I love your animal photos and the love and care you seem to have for them. Funny stuff too, keep up the good work!
