No Pain no Gain?

"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Abraham Lincoln

This is one of my very favorite quotes, that is of course unless you have a mind numbing toothache...
I was supposed to get a tooth yanked about three years ago.
It was really bad. A problem had developed no thanks to a poorly capped tooth, but due to my phobia of dentists and lack of insurance, once the infection healed, I shined it.
A couple of trail bars last Saturday started this weeks recent round of pain and found me this morning reclining in the dentists chair at the crack of dawn and gratefully leaving with a packet of penicillin.
I tried to take my mind off things by starting to shoot a few photos for the Alphabet Photo challenge that starts this Sunday, so I'm not running around in a state of creative panic on Saturday... uhhh tomorrow, going ... A, what can I shoot that starts with the letter A.
I was over at Daves' after my dental appointment- (for some sympathy and breakfast) when seeing a cool broom (the letter B) hanging on the wall, I decided maybe I should get a jump on things.
I love staging photos, and hopefully there's plenty of material to work with between our respective abodes.
My goal is to post each days photo, starting Sunday, through the month of February, (and the runner uppers), God I hate to make decisions, this one or that...
Please sign on with me, either to post (a photo) or 2 follow mine that I will be posting on my blog!

Are you posting the photos on here or FB or both? I'm so bloody non-commital. But I have a great 'A'. Maybe I'll call you today -- sorry about your toothache. That and scratching a cornea are the most painful things I can think of.

Gotta get a load of hay today. $$$

I'm not sure, guess I'll figure it out along the way. Still trying to get what the time difference is tween here and London, ...and da'rules, if there are any in regard to shooting in advance.
...or if you have to do one a day, or just post one a day.
Are the alphabet cops gonna come knocking on my door and haul me off?
Anyway, I hope you give it a try Leah, you got that new camera, and you are taking some awesome pictures with it.
I shot A, B and D yesterday, still have to download, and decide, I'm so indecisive, that will be my challenge, ....and following through the month too.
