Mystery Photo #57

I’m kind of disappointed in myself today.  It’s only four days until Christmas, so the mystery photo really should be holiday related, but it’s not :(.  I hope you will forgive me :).

With Bryan home from college for a few weeks, we have been booking appointments for him, one of which was getting his car in for some repairs.  When I got home from work yesterday, we found out that his car was ready, and with news of an approaching intense winter storm, we decided to drive down and pick it up before the roads got bad.  By the time I got back home, had supper, put the oven on to clean (which in no time had smoke billowing through the house, setting off the smoke alarms), started laundry, and cleaned my spoon collection (which was black instead of silver), I just didn’t have time to create a holiday mystery photo.

Oh well, I think this one is still pretty good, and I know your comments will be just as entertaining as usual, maybe more so if any of you have gotten into the holiday “cheer” (booze) early :).  Ok, ready, set, go….

  1. Holy cow, the natives are restless this morning. I think I should have stayed up late and posted this at midnight so that TBM and LouAnn didn’t get their knickers in a knot. LOL!! By the way everyone, just had to let you know that this is my 400th post. Wahoooooo!!!! And I’m glad to be alive today – how about you?

  2. now I know you want everyone to think that this is a bolt but I suspect this is a far mor mundane section of a cheap plastic pen. congratulations on your 400th post. Merry Chrimbo to all, retirement beckons me at the end of the day, just a few hours until beer time

  3. Thanks for the congrats Mr. Bunny Chow and happy last day of work to you!!!! You are so lucky – I would have given anything to stay home with my kids when they were little, and you sound like such an amazing dad that I know your kids are going to love it! So, are you going to cause any excitement today at work and really go out with a bang??

  4. A bolt from Santa’s sleigh and you put it back right now missy–I don’t want him losing all his gifts before he gets to my house! Congrats on your 400th post. where is TBM–she was up early like I was. Your husband cooks and you have snow–what more do you have for me to be jealous of?
    Yay, Mr. Bunny and his early retirement to fulltime daddyhood!

  5. I know this isn’t it but I’m going to say a bolt. Cindy congrats on your 400th post and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    I probably should admit that I wasn’t up all that early, I’m just a few hours ahead. In fact it was a photo finish to get my cat to the vet for his 9am appointment. We made it and boy is the cat pissed about that. Good thing his shots are making him sleepy. The dog was mad he didn’t get to go, little does he know he’s scheduled on Monday. I know, Christmas Eve and he has to get shots. I’m a horrible parent.

    As for this picture, I think you want us to say it’s a bolt because it looks like one. Is it part of one of the spoons you were cleaning–you said they were more black. That’s all I got today. A dirty spoon. And if this is one of your spoons don’t be insulted if I bring my own cutlery over for dinner.

    Congrats Mr. Bunny! And Congrats Cindy on the 400th!

    That’s probably the bolt that’s holding the Earth together. But you unscrewed it so you could take a mystery photo and now the world is going to end! 😉 Hehe, sounds like something Scrat from Ice Age would do.

  8. Jo Bryant says:

    so…do you actually tell people what it is eventually ?

    O.K. – I don’t usually even try to de-mystify but every once in a while I figure I have it down pat!
    It’s the handle of a lint cleaner. 🙂 Ha!

  10. Wow, this was another of those mystery photos where I thought everyone would get it but nobody did. Yayyyy me!!! It’s actually a springy door stopper thing, you know the ones that you attach to the baseboard behind a door so it doesn’t slam into the wall. I think you guys all have pre-Christmas brains and that’s why you didn’t get it. Oh well, there’s always next week. Ok, Mikey and I are off to do the big Christmas grocery shopping. Hopefully the roads aren’t too bad because it has been kind of stormy here!!

    Arrived too late to comment before the answer was posted – but I would have guessed something different! Have been too busy catching up on John Erickson’s birthday posts this morning. Merry Christmas!

  12. that was much too easy–all of our brains are much more complex than a springy doorstop–love you anyway
