~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.10-- "J" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of March 10th: 
(1) Starts with "J"; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Bird or wings

(1) Starts with "J":  "J" is for "Jeeps I have known." Note the dog waiting in this one parked outside the grocery store.  I think he was hiding from me.
A local Jeep, parked in the grocery store lot in Conroe, Texas.  I wouldn't leave my dog unattended there in the back.  If you tried to take her she probably would have gone (she died in 2-13).  This one looks a little afraid but would probably go also. 
I'm thinking the owner is fairly young, this looks like a young person's Jeep.

Parked outside a small bungalow in Key West, Florida.  We walked past this Jeep every morning but never saw anyone near it.  I'm thinking it belongs to a person who likes to take his Sunday car out in the Boone Docks Could be a lady, I'd guess in her early thirties.

This is our granddaughter KP driving her rental Jeep find in Hyde Park, London, U.K.  She seemed to be going in circles.  Taken while we were visiting them as they lived in London.  They are home now.

Another Jeep find in a grocery store parking lot.  This time here in Katy, Texas.  Tom thinks it may be a "Wanta be Jeep."  I didn't hang around waiting for the owner but I can imagine he also is in his early thirties and likes to drive in the muddy rice fields.  He may go rock climbing with it.

I don't know much about this Jeep or its owner.  But I was glad to find that I had blogged about it being a Red Jeep.  My son had a red one but sold it when he retired.  My younger Great-grandniece is getting married tomorrow.  When she was in high school she was wanting to get a Red Jeep but her father got her a Chevy Tahoe instead.

This white and pink Jeep was driven by a young lady her in town on Cinco Ranch Boulevard.  I couldn't quite ever get even with her (I was driving beside and behind her) so that I could get a really good picture.  Notice the pink decorations on the back.  There were more and larger pink items around the hood area and on the grill.

This nice looking, seemingly sedate, Jeep belonged to my friend.  I am not sure that he owns it any more.  It is the main piece of hardware when he and his son would go Jeeping.  He bought the RV so that he wouldn't have to stay overnight in town while on a Jeeping Weekend but rather could camp out with his son in the rock fields where they Jeeped.

This0Yellow0Jeep I don't know much about.  It was in 2006 when I found it and took a picture.  I have no idea where I was then.  Maybe Quebec City, CA?  I did talk about liking it better than my son's Red Jeep (blog link).
All of the above Jeeps have been on my blogs.  Each one had its own story, often behind that story is another story I haven't told.  Someday, I might ...
(2) Week's Favorite: When we got back from our South American cruise (L.A. around Cape Horn and up to Rio de Janeiro) my Mustang, a 1998 GT Convertible, had cratered.  The battery was completely dead and would not start.
This week I jumpered it off my other Mustang, a 1974 Mustang II Ghia, to get it going.  Then without shutting it off I drove to Sam's and bought it a new battery, one with a three year warranty.  Below is the waiting room where I got caught up with comments owed, some from you guys reading this.  I hope I didn't miss anyone.
(3) Bird or wings: One burglar was shot dead.  The other escaped for today but he will be caught and become a jail bird. Two policemen were shot, one seriously, the other went home after spending a night in the hospital.

Comments: the third one a Jeep or a wantabe Jeep?
I like what you did with your 'bird' word Tom. Very clever. Love seeing all the jeeps. Have a lovely week head.
Never was into jeeps. You got a bunch of them here. I love the fist shot the best. That dog can she you but you can't see him.

Have a fabulous weekend, Jim. ☺
Wow, that's a whole lotta Jeeps! Great shots, Jim! I think I like the one that KP is driving the best! Sorry to hear about the neighbourhood shooting incident - I hope they catch that burglar soon.
These are real monsters ! They take a lot of space in our narrow streets and are therefore not well seen, lol !
To your question about my painting class, everybody brings its own material along, because we all paint with different materials from pastel to oil !
That is a lot of jeeps! Fun survey of the different styles you've seen. I do like the dog peeking out the back. Of course, I think KP's is the cutest! Glad you got your vehicle going again now. Very scary with the thieves on the loose. Hope the officers are doing well now. Thanks for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great week!
That's a lot of pretty jeeps you've collected in photos! They are awesome for adventure driving! I would like to hear the backstory behind your love of jeeps! I'm glad the burglars didn't venture across your property, what a stupid thing to die for!
I forgot to note that there was a bright neon green Jeep in the parking lot where I used to work that was driven by a young woman. Stenciled across the back in large lettering was "Take Your Top Off" (referring to the Jeep I hope)which always made me smile. :-)
