a to z challenge – p is for pikachu

But probably not the Pikachu you may know (and, if you’re me, love – yep, I’m a Pokemon Go player, and I wanna catch’em all! Okay, I’ll stop there. But seriously, if you play and want to friend me, I’m PiecesofJade on there too – I always like to gather…

Alphabet Challenge – The Letter R

We had an amazing day of fun the day we decided to do the Letter R. It was actually quite accidental (and me being a little bit pushy) that got us to the beach where we played with roots and rope on a riverbank, as well as with an old…

Alphabet Challenge – Q is for Queeny Park, Quiet!, Quarry & Dairy Queen

These Alphabet Challenge days are nothing if not fun. This time we got to introduce W to a park he’d never been to. I want to say it is in an area of St. Louis that he’s seldom been in, either, far West County. For me, heading out to Queeny…

Alphabet Challenge – P is for Piasa, Pub & Power Plant

We’d had a great day hunting for O’s, and ended up with several P’s as well. We’d started out here, at an Oil Refinery. That was a fortuitous and completely random side-road excursion that turned into several cute pics and even a Scavenger Hunt. (You’ll get to see that later…

Alphabet Challenge – N is for…

New Orleans, of course, with St. Louis Cathedral in the background… And for a paddlewheeler named The Natchez. As a special bonus, I managed a Scavenger Hunt while we were out there fooling around, though there were so many people coming and going (we were right outside a ferry terminal)…

Alphabet Challenge: M is for Mississippi

We almost missed the Letter M for the Alphabet Challenge (the rules of the Challenge, per the Rope on the Run group on Fetlife that hosts it, state that you can only post each letter’s photos to the group during that letter’s week.)  It wasn’t that we didn’t have plenty…

Alphabet Challenge – K is for Keifer Creek

This may be the most minimal of our letter challenges, but to me it is the one that inspires the most lascivious thoughts – maybe precisely because it is so minimal.  See, that gives my brain the opportunity to make up a story to go along with the pictures. A…

Alphabet Challenge – J is for Jeep & Jet

The letter J was proving to be a little problematical. We had a few ideas, but nothing we could pull off effectively or that truly inspired the Guys. Then Ad and I took a walk one day in Forest Park, near the Science Museum, and just happened upon this grounded…

Alphabet Challenge – I is for Island

Since my run-ins with skin cancer started last year, I don’t get to go out in the sun and play much anymore. Even with heavy sunscreen, I’m a little gunshy – or should I say “sunshy” – so it was an unusual treat this past summer to get out and…

Wicked Wednesday – It’s Time for the Next Letter in the Alphabet: H!

Yeah, yeah, I went out of order with the Letter L, but I’m back in order now. H is for Hot Tub. We had lots of fun at a friend’s house, playing in their hot tub in their backyard. [slideshow] For more Wicked Wednesday entries, click the link below!
