Don’t go through life, grow through life. – Eric Butterworth

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 242)

Was it the doohickey that lowers toast? Not that doohickey. Is it metal? Yes. Is it part of a case or a suitcase or briefcase? No. Is it part of R2D2? Ha ha, no. Brenda continues, “Is it the silver tooth of a laughing troll?” Snicker snicker, he he. No. A clue: You would find this subject just about anywhere. Is it a frame? Not a frame. It serves a purpose, it is part of … Kitchen tool? Not a kitchen tool. “Is it a mind control tool (read: remote control)?” Not remotely a tool, ha ha. Shahn asked, “Is it the side of a hand can opener?” Not that either. Girish commented, “It’s actually very sexy if you turn it sideways :) Is it a knife sharpener?” Not a knife sharpener.

So what was it? What you saw was part of a door handle, the “lever” type that you push the handle down to open the door.

Day 242/365

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open. – John Barrymore

A last hurrah for the summer this Labor Day weekend, we’re spending it with my sister-in-law and nieces. Fun in the sun! So expect late posts (like tonight). However, today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 241)

Jude commented, “Thinking of shredded wheat (breakfast cereal) but don’t know if you have that over there, otherwise a loofah?” Well, we do have shredded wheat (which I really like), but it’s not that or a loofah. Pat said, “is that a sideways allium?” Not a sideways allium. Kathryn asked, “A knot of rope or twine?” Ding ding ding! Yes, it’s a very old piece of rope wound around a column in Apalachicola, Florida. Brenda chimed in, “I was thinking today’s looked like an SOS pad (kitchen scrubber) or maybe something underwater, like coral. But an old frayed rope makes perfect sense. As for the stormtrooper. Wow. Speechless.”

Day 241/365

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer. – Ansel Adams

You know something bad has happened when hubby calls and says, “Don’t freak out, everyone’s okay …” and then proceeds to explain he’s been in a car accident … almost within walking distance to our neighborhood. Don’t accidents always happen closest to home? Thank goodness that no-one was hurt, even with an overturned vehicle (not his). Miracles do happen!

So after calming down, I was able to figure out today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture, which is ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 240)

Was it a light bulb? Not a light bulb. “Jelly (jello if you’re american) mould?” Not a jello/jelly mould/mold. (Don’t you just love the differences in spelling between UK and US English?) 😉 Could it be a radiator? Not a radiator. So what was it?

Well … my hubby happens to be a Star Wars fanatic (okay, we all are in this household, but he’s the most fanatic of all), and not only has he built his own R2D2 (better than the one in the movie!), he has his own Stormtrooper outfit, which he also hand built. So what you saw was part of his Stormtrooper shoulder (ABS plastic). If you want to see a picture of R2D2, check out Day 67 – This Is Not the Droid You’re Looking For.

And yes, if you’re wondering, we’re the coolest house in the neighborhood for Halloween! 😀

It’s amazing at how much an image of Crepe Myrtle flowers changes once the color is removed. Wow! (Two pictures)

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Oh my, I just can’t seem to keep up with all the work this week! So a quick post with today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 239)

Yesterday was one of those days when I thought, “hmm, I need to take today’s picture,” and immediately picked up the first thing I saw. Brenda asked if it was the teeth that cut food wrap or foil? My reply: It doesn’t cut food wrap or foil … So, what you saw indeed had “teeth,” it was packing tape teeth.

Yesterday was an experiment of “do you see what I see?” Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 238)

Yesterday’s picture was not such a mystery to identify; I posted it because I saw an image within the picture, could you see what I saw? Jude saw a bunch of overweight people exercising. Shahn thought the twigs made a pattern of a turtle shell. Eric thought it looked like some sort of insect. Brenda saw a twig-legged deer with big antlers. I, too, saw a deer, or rather, a reindeer in that bunch of twigs. It was quite interesting to discover each person’s unique perspective. 🙂

Creativity makes a leap, then looks to see where it is. – Mason Cooley

Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture isn’t such a mystery (I think), but when I was looking at the result, a picture appeared to me. Can you tell? What do you see?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 237)

Is it a crab shell? Not a crab shell. Is it plastic? Not plastic. Concrete? Stone? Neither. Glass? Not glass. Some kind of candy? Not candy. “ok we’re getting this narrowed down…it’s something made of metal!” And Eric would be correct, it is made of metal. And a clue: this is located outside. “A fire hydrant?” Ding ding ding! Eric is indeed correct, what you saw was an old fashioned red fire hydrant. 🙂
