Attitude Already

Who me? Maybe. Let's SEE!

Astonishing Animals are Amusing.

Aardvark
And here we have an aardwolf pup--who knew THESE existed!? (thanks Rosie!)
(Giant) Anteater
Armadillo




an observation: Animals that begin with A are a little odd... (though I confess to liking them for that...)


This is ALSO an Armadillo... the Glasgow amphitheater, nicknamed, the Armadillo... (I've been there... it isn't nearly so strange inside... and I LIKE its strangeness outside)







Appetizing Arrangements

Asparugus

Artichokes


And Veggies that start with A take my #1 and #1 favorite spot! Who knew!?








Anomalous Apostrophes

yeahno





This last is the funniest to me...

Okay, so that doesn't explain my attitude... but it's there. Trust me.
And an idea I stole directly from Alex?  Sharing blogs... for today... two A Blogs that I never miss!

Alex Cavanaugh
And Alliterative Allomorph with Jessica Bell

Good luck on A to Z progress, gang!

I REALLY can't stand apostrophes in their wrong place's. haha just kidding on that last word. Seriously, people need to go to school! *twitch twitch* Especially if they're in the sign-writing business!

Marjorie said...

Those signs seriously make me despair of all humanity...alot <---- See what I did there? hahahaha! I crack myself up!

M.J. Fifield said...

My co-workers are notorious for misplacing apostrophes. I then give them a hard time over it. You'd think they'd start putting them in the right place just to get me to shut up.

A really fun post!

Love these! (Particularly the odd apostrophes!) :)

Siv Maria said...

Nice to meet you :)but now I feel stupid for using only one word...ANGER LOL! Looking forward to see what you have in store for B.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Squee!!!!! Look at the little naked aardvark!
I LOVE Dunkin Donuts.

Charmaine Clancy said...

My hubby's favourite animal is the Giant Anteater - he's always wanted one. But I'm a bit in love with the baby Ardvark, how cute?
Great start to the A-Z.

Ella said...

Great A post; I had attitude in mine, too. Now, I want a drink and a doughnut...oops wrong day ;-D

Old Kitty said...

Awwwwwwwwww aardvark! Animals are so amusing and nAked!

Yay!!!!!!!!

LOL at those apostrophe's!! LOL!!

Take care

Tracy said...

Are you going to do all your A-Z challenges in pictures? That would be like an extra added twist.

Apparently the people who are responsible for naming ugly animals have something against the letter "A".

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* Thanks so much, everyone! As for pics in the A to Z--a lot of them. There are a couple topics I want to hit more completely and won't go this route, but I thought an animal, a food and a writing thing, if I could do it in brief, was a nice route for a lot of the month.

Nf1andprek-whisper said...

i really loved this idea..and I loved all the pictures... great start to the a-z challenge..great to see you again this year.

Lou said...

Love this post - I think that Glasgow's amphitheater looks awesome from the outside.

Stephen Tremp said...

I love seeing funny mispelled signs. We have a restauarant close to home with a sign that says, Family Dinning." Still haven't eaten there LOL!

Grammy said...

Hey, Hart...Love the pics and the attitudes. Hoping to get around to most all of the blogs. Love, Ruby

Karen Walker said...

FAbulous photos. What a clever idea.

Carol Kilgore said...

That aardvark is so cool - part pig, part donkey, part elephant. All in a tiny package.

Have an amazing April.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

i could eat asparagus every day. True story.

Also check out This Link for an adorable baby Giant Anteater pic.
Totally worth it.

atimetoshine said...

Great post! I found you through the A-Z Blogging Challenge, but I read a few other posts and something caught my eye. Your mention of Harry Potter fanfics! I too explored my writing by writing a HP fic, so we already have something in common! :D

Deb and Barbara said...

Great As! Okay, but Sign's is the funniest :)

Ann said...

Such fun! This was great Ms. Tart!

TS Hendrik said...

I love armadillos. They're weird in all the right ways.

Margaret Hall said...

Love, love the post~!!Great start to the A to Z~!! Pictures of the critters are great, and the veggies, too!...Thanks for sharing...Have fun!!

Dafeenah said...

I loved the pics. You are truly an addict!

Laura Josephsen said...

The food made me hungry. ;)

And I laughed at the random apostrophes. :D

What an awesome way to start the A-Z challenge!

Tracy said...

Hah, the signs are funny to me...while I may not be the most prolific in grammar, I know when it is incorrect and it drives me nuts...oh well! talking about attitude!

RosieC said...

In my quest for word suggestions on FB/Twitter/etc., for "A" I received "aardwolf". They're cute little canines that eat insects in Africa. Less exotic than it's A-kin features above, but cute, and if you hadn't heard of them, I wanted to share :)

Crystal Pistol said...

"Sign's"?! they MUST be joking!!! Great find, Miss Hart.

Holly Ruggiero said...

A animals are kinda odd but so cute. Those signs are hysterical.

hsoister said...

Aardvarks look so prehistoric. And that little one looks so naked.

Hart Johnson said...

YAY! Thanks so much for all the love, gang!

And that's a baby aardvark--I think they get hairier...

Laura said...

Hi Hart - ooohhh the anteater is adorable - that last sign's hilarious! Himself is still giggling!
Happy weekend YAY!

Michael Di Gesu said...

LOVE the animal pics....

That Dunkin Donuts sign makes me want one and I'm on a diet!

Tundiel said...

Animals in wrong places and cute apostrophes!!

Oh wait, that's wrong...

*shifty*

Dani said...

OMG, the last one is hysterical! LOL.

The aardwolf is so ugly he is cute!

Rhonda@laugh-quotes said...

The animals are amazing, but I think the apostrophe is my favorite.

SweetMarie83 said...

Who knew that 'a' animals were so odd! Very interesting indeed. The apostrophe thing is probably one of my biggest pet peeves, I'm so glad that it bothers other people too! haha Great post!

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Great photos! I'd never heard or seen of that little zebra looking guy before either.

Have a nice weekend,

bendedspoon said...

Thank you so much for my big smiles today -- for the signs of the times! We don't have those animals in here but I agree they're odd but that's what add to their cuteness! :)

The Words Crafter said...

Loved the animal pics! And I'd love to visit that ampitheater....

Jeffrey Beesler said...

Wow, an aardwolf pup. That's so awesome. Good luck on the challenge!

erica and christy said...

Apostrophe's...yeah. Not our specialty. ;) Fun A post, Hart, can't wait to see the "H".

Cheeseboy said...

A to Z. Alex must have gotten to you too. The apostrophes made me laugh. Funny.

Speaking of April Fool's. I pranked the entire 6th grade today. It was great. Check my blog for video.

Samuel said...

great start to the challenge, liking the sign collection.

Marcus said...

The Armadillo and Anteater are just too cool...weird, very weird, but in a cool way. They seem like from another planet or out of a fantasy novel/movie.

Patricia Stoltey said...

Nice post, Hart. I love aardvarks...don't know why. There's something so appealing about that face. :)

mandarinblue said...

UGH I never realized how icky aardvarks looked! Arthur wasn't that wrinkly! Thanks for stopping by my blog; hope you can make it back for another visit!
