Mystery Photo #98

What a wonderful week, other than the fact I had to go to work each day that is :).  The weather has been sunny and unseasonably warm for October, and even though we took the opportunity to put away all of our patio furniture, we did leave out our zero gravity chairs, and I spent some time reading on the deck after work each day.  I turned my face up to the sun, listened to the birds, and breathed in the fresh air, trying to cement everything into my mind as wonderful memories to carry me through the snowy months  ahead.  Unfortunately, they are calling for rain all weekend and cooler temperatures next week, but I’m not complaining because I haven’t even turned on my furnace yet, and usually I’ve cranked it on before now.

I hope all of my blogging friends have had a wonderful week too.  Now let’s finish it off with a bang with the mystery photo, and hopefully the people who forgot to play last week (you know who you are :)) will remember to join in the fun this time LOL!!  Everyone put on your thinking caps, and let’s have lots of guesses.  Ok, ready, set, go…..

    Looks like some birch bark to me 😉

  2. I’m also going to go with some sort of tree trunk, but possibly cherry or Japanese cherry, glad it’s been warm where you are, it could have been a lot worse here.

  3. In the U.K. I would say a Silver Birch

    Mike’s face after you shave him. I think you need a new razor. And I didn’t forget this week!

  5. my legs just after I have shaved them

  6. no, no, no — it is Mars–the place you visit each week with your alien friends!

    My first thought is again : aaaaaargh . I’ll get back to you with something more reasoned after the valium kicks in.

    That looks like my face feels, after a shave with a razor that the wife sneaked a leg shave with…
    either that or it sure needs a new paint job…
    a little bit long for braille..
    could be a paperbark tree, but you don’t get them over in your country….
    very similar to my old school desk after I’d had a good go with my pen knife…
    gee now I have a headache… that valium sounds good too… I’ll come back later and see who got it right and then take another guess…

  9. Hmmm…I can’t help it I read the other comments so now I have birch bark in my brain. I can’t think of anything else…ok…birch bark 🙂

    I have consulted Sherlock whilst my nerves settle.

    Sherlock says: I deduce Whats On that this is the effect of a person condemned to climb the walls due to past confinement resulting from s*@# and the absence nail clippers. Quick Whats On there is no time to lose. First, stop hitting me, then fetch the garden shears and enough cocoa to drop an elephant.

    Edward J Fox (in his own voice) says: Ia don’t no wat I like, but ia du no wat art iz. In thisa case, somebody clearly likes a bit of theold ruff. Pass the meths, theres a goodchap.

    Posh but Daft says: I told old Jenkins to but some of the old petrol into the old Porch, don’t ya know. There was a slight mishap, when I opened the door and got soaked through. I told old Jenkers that life would be much simpler if I could just be a little doggy. Jenkers, good chap, said he’d fetch the jolly old blow torch to dry me off and then I could go whoof. What fun, moiha.

    Myself I think: Something with claws has been scratching at something that had a paper surface. Perhaps Sherlock was right. 🙂

  11. hahahaha — this is great–

  12. Map of Time says:

    Looks like a birch tree, but since I believe in being off-the-wall I will instead guess that this is a fleet of ships as viewed from your spaceship.

  13. RMW says:

    At first I thought it was some kind of insects marching through a puddle, then I decided on wildebeests crossing the plains…. but now I have my glasses on I see it is neither of those… but it was fun imagining….

    • Now there’s a great twist for the mystery photo. People who wear glasses must play without their glasses on, and people who don’t need glasses must put on prescription glasses. Now that could be fun!! 🙂

    I haven’t got a clue, but Kelvin says it’s the venting on an electrical machine (like the bottom of a VCR, etc.) Have a great weekend!

  15. Vicki (from Victoria A Photography) says:

    Too hard. Too hard.
    (and I actually had 2 valium last night. I was so hyped up after looking at photos for hours on my computer last night/early this morning, thought my brain would never calm down. It’s a long, long time since I’ve had to take a 10mg valium).

  16. Honestly, I don’t know what I would do without Mystery Photo Friday :). I don’t know about all of you, but to me it just starts off the weekend perfectly. That was so much fun yesterday! I laughed every time I looked at a comment, and as you may have noticed, yesterday was a trying day at work, so I really needed those laughs. Thanks everyone!! Many of you did guess correctly. It was a closeup of the bark on a birch tree. Congrats! Some of the other answers were very unique too though :). I will never look at birch bark the same again!!

  17. I knew it was birch bark–it was just not as interesting as the other answers (I say now with confidence now that you have given us the answer)
