What Is It?!?


What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture (Week 7/52)

Fabio mused, “It seems like muscle. It is hard to be guessed!” Not muscle, although I can see that! Tracy thought, “Cooked pasta:-) with water running over it!!!” Not cooked pasta with water running over it, but that is a really neat perspective. Preeti guessed, “a part of some porcelain figure??” Not part of a porcelain figure. “Is it hair?? lovely long golden tresses” Not hair, but I can see that, too. And then Mic came along and guessed, “Some type of synthetic rope?” Ding ding ding!

Yes, what you saw was rope (synthetic), which is part of the handle on a laundry tub.

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 Is It?!?


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.”
