I thought I had all of you totally outsmarted last Friday with the mystery photo, but I was obviously sorely mistaken. So, I had to put on my thinking cap and come up with something really tricky for this week. Mike and I have a very long drive ahead of us this morning, so I’m hoping you will entertain us with your guesses and help to make our journey go by quickly.
We are heading to Kingston, Ontario this weekend to celebrate my daddy’s 80th birthday, and I’m really looking forward to it. The drive to Kingston is 4 hours, and then we are picking up my parents and heading a further 2 hours east to our nation’s capital, Ottawa. I have never been to Ottawa before, and we thought it might be something different to do for my dad’s birthday. We are going to spend a few hours at the casino there, stay in a hotel for the night, and then do some sightseeing on Saturday before returning to Kingston for a family birthday dinner at a restaurant on Sunday. I hope my dad has a fantastic time this weekend because he really deserves it!!
It’s time to hit the road, so let the fun begin. Ok, ready, set, go…..
I’m becoming convinced about the alien aspect. Obviously the footmarks of an alien robot left at a time when the earth was just a molten mass of metal. aaaaaargh.
Or, the homes of parasitic nanobots. aaaaaargh.
I’ve got a chocolate drink, don’t you know. mmmmmmm
Well at least I can count on you to start off my day with a smile :). Where the hell is everyone else this morning?!?!
Remember last night was Halloween, they’re all still recovering from witches brew. Or perhaps you’ve got them all stumped for a while. 🙂
.. And safe journery. 🙂
Thank you :), and it would be nice to stump you guys for once.
Okay with respect to your trip have a great time. Wish your dad a very happy birthday. Now onto the mystery photo I got nothing. I’m trying hard but I just can’t figure it out. Okay how about this It’s a peephole a one eyed monster. Told you nothing!
Thanks Edith, I will tell him :). How about a clue? It’s something that most people have in their house, although I know some people who say they have never owned one. LOL
I hope you have a safe and fun trip and Happy Birthday to your dad!!! 🙂 All I can think of is that the pic is part of a stove—-the burner on a gas stove where the little grate sits. Long shot but it’s early and I only have one cup of coffee in me!
Hmmmm my previous guess appears to have been zapped by the aliens so I’ll go again. It appears to be the drain holes in some sort of Teflon coated griddle pan. I could of course be delusional but it is possible. Have a great trip, may dad was in Ottawa earlier in the year and loved it.
Thanks Bunny 🙂
Have a wonderful trip and tell your dad happy birthday and have a slice of cake for me–or two! Now, I think Beth Ann and Mr. Bunny are on to something. But I’m going to take a stab at it. Is it metal!
That’s my girl!! Such a specific answer LOL :).
Just be glad you aren’t grading an essay test. I can talk in circles for hours!
Me too 🙂
The metal coating looks like it would be inside an oven… but then when you said some people say they never owned one, that threw me off… but I’m going with the oven theory… I couldn’t tell you what part of the oven but that’s the closest I can get.
This black hole was discovered only last week. I say black hole singular because the red phase shift in the cosmos makes it look like two black holes. It is the only known black hole that has rings although they are not circular as are those around Saturn. Hope I have finally guessed right.
Happy birthday to Dad 🙂
It’s a politician. That is, when pressed something hot and watery appears from the inside. 🙂
Does being stumped hurt. It sounds dreadful. aaaaaaaaaaaaargh 🙂
I was stumped so Kelvin’s guess is it is part of a broiling pan. I would have said it was part of the inside of the doors on a vehicle, but that doesn’t go with your clue.
Aggh this one is frustrating, I feel as if there is a nagging feeling at the back of my mind telling me I should know what this one is! I’m intrigued.
I don’t know although possibly it’s the key ignition to your spaceship.
I made a guess and now it is not here — and I am sure it was a good one–so don’t think I wasn’t here–I was–but I cannot remember what I said–alas and alack
the top of a broiler pan
hey sleephead–where are you–now I have to go to work–see you later…………
Good morning everyone :). We had a wonderful night at the casino in Ottawa last night, where there was a great live band and an amazing all you can eat buffet dinner. We didn’t win anything big but we had fun playing :). Now for the mystery photo. Wahoooo!!! I got you guys this week! It was the bottom of an iron – you’re kicking yourselves now aren’t you? The guesses were great though I must admit. Gotta go – time for free breakfast at the hotel :).
Hey do I get no credit for my correct if private guess? I promised I wouldn’t let the cat out of the bag and I didn’t but now you pretend it didn’t happen.
I’m sorry Bunny, we were just in a hurry to get down to breakfast. But yes everyone, I was talking privately with Bunny yesterday and telling him that parts of his answer were kind of correct, and then he guesses again and got it correct. I was very impressed!!
I say excuse moi but I quote “It’s a politician. That is, when pressed something hot and watery appears from the inside”. Replace politician with iron. I was trying not to give the game away. 🙂 Anyway, I wasn’t going to be stumped it sounds so gruesome. How much chocolate do I get. 🙂
I’m glad your enjoying yourselves after you long drive. Have fun.
Thank you 🙂
See that just proves it. I do have one but obviously don’t use it enough (and my husband would I Agee with that statement) to recognize it. Well done Cindy.
Thanks Edith! I think there are a lot of irons that sit unused and lonely LOL!
My father will be having his 80th birthday on Nov. 20. How much alike we are.
We are, aren’t we :). Hope your daddy has a wonderful birthday like my daddy is having. We had a great night at the casino in Ottawa last night, spent all day today exploring in Ottawa, and tomorrow we are going out for a family birthday dinner.
What’s an iron?
LOL!! Never use one eh? I have to for my dress clothes for work and Daniel’s uniforms for work :).
Uh, still not following. Wrinkled is the best look
Mike says that’s exactly how he feels and besides, he says his Charles Atlas like body (lmao!!) presses all the wrinkles out! Ok, now i’m going to pee my pants I’m laughing so hard!!
