I have a big surprise for all of you this week. The mystery photo is being brought to you by a guest blogger – my good friend, T.B. Markinson. She is an amazing author and world traveler whose two blogs you should definitely check out if you haven’t already at 50 Year Project and Making My Mark. And now I turn the craziness over to TBM and hope that your guesses for her mystery photo will make her smile as much as they do for me every week. Welcome to the Loonybin my friend :).
Each week, Cindy challenges us with her mystery photos. In fact, she has provided 106 challenges and I think I’ve guessed correctly at least three times. I will admit that occasionally I whine that she’s not playing fair and making it too hard. Even though I’m a terrible guesser, I still look forward to the challenge each week. The best part for me is that her photos give all of us a way to interact with each other. Because of her challenges, I’ve become friends with many of the bloggers who participate. After a long week, it’s great to be able to joke around and have fun.
After giving Cindy so much crap for over a year, I’ve finally decided to jump into the fray. I provided today’s mystery photo. I won’t say too much about it. But I will say this, I don’t know how Cindy does it each week. I spent more time than I would like to admit coming up with a decent photo that wasn’t too easy or too hard. To be honest, I’m not sure I would have the patience to come up with something for every Friday. I admire her dedication. And LouAnn, don’t fret. Next week I’ll be back to my normal self and will moan about it being too hard.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Thant to me looks like a dolls foot/ankle.
Oh crap… now you are here to tease us… it’s a cork puller that is cold and needs a sock…
Yep, I’m in charge this week!
And you’re loving it aren’t you?
As long as there’s no actual responsibility, yes.
Oh it could be a dolls foot /ankle
Are you copying from Jeff?? LOL
TBM’s baby shoe with cement instead of bronze–her parents were sending a message–but why it needs a cap I do not know
I am not sure I like this–who am I supposed to whine with this week?
Hey now, I’ll still whine with you. I mean I finally know one, but can’t guess since I snapped the photo. But now I can’t remember what it is. A monkey butt, maybe? Alien probe?
ha ha – I should have known it would have been something alien–after all, look whose blog you are on
Hey now, be nice. You’re not supposed to tell people that I’m really an alien :).
Was that really a secret?
Ok, maybe it is a little obvious 🙂
Having very carefuly misread this; TBM has just invited you to wine and dine. 😉
Oh my goodness—TBM is every where this week!!! Came over to see what loonybin had to offer and who do I find??? 🙂 I have no clue what the picture is of and can’t even make an educated guess. I blame my dilated eyes from my eye exam yesterday (even though I doubt they are still dilated). 🙂
dang, how come I’ve never used that excuse? I need to remember that one.
Hey my answer disappeared again, I’m not sure why TBM is being mean too, but I think it’s part of a Christmas decoration.
Dude when have I been mean to you? Watch it, or no beer for you tomorrow! I blame Cindy and her alien friends.
By choosing mean pictures that aren’t easy. Mmmmmmm beer although today I fear the beer, having been to a street festival last night and then continuing at home and then hearing of Madiba’s passing we decided to drink more and before we knew it 2am dog walks.
I didn’t hear the news until this morning. I was sad to hear it.
Beer helps my hangovers.
Are you two actually going to meet? I’m not sure I like this because you guys will have already met each other and schemed against me before I get there next summer :).
Yep, we’re meeting tomorrow for photos and frivolity. 😉
I get to meet Bunny and Luke. How many times will Bunny say, “Luke, I am your father”
Maybe even Mrs BC and Monkey and Bug. I will make every effort to quote star wars as frequently as possible despite the fact that I don’t actually know any other lines than Luke I am your father, oh and Yoda says that you must use Vodafone you should.
Wait – who is Luke???
Luke is my new camera
Dude, don’t you read Bunny’s blog. His camera is named Luke!
Will I be able to tell Monkey and Bug apart? So I’m meeting Bunny, Mrs. Bunny, Monkey, and Bug. I need to come up with a better nickname than The Better Half
She does read my blog and knew Luke name she even commented on the post, we’ll have to forgive her as it’s still early in the frozen north and she’s obviously not had enough coffee yet.
Ok, I just ate a bunch of Christmas chocolates so my brain is clear again. Of course I remember who Luke is now!! Silly me – it was just chocolate withdrawal screwing with my brain cells :).
This is for Ms. Loony – are you having withdrawal symptoms–why are you not guessing–do you know what it is–is it really the foot of your alien friend Argonot?
I can’t guess because I already know what it is. Sorry :).
It’s okay, you can tell everyone. A monkey’s butt in space with a hat on. It gets cold in space.
Yes, it does :).
Looks like a boot warmer to me with a cap plunked on it for deception purposes. Help! Cindyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Sorry my friend, I’m not allowed to help because I know what it is :).
It is a Martian brain pulling device. Aside: Ever since I started visiting this site I’ve been doing this a lot “aaarrgh”. Now I’m getting it from both of you. What did I do ? I’m just an ordinary simple deranged barm pot like everybody else (yes, I have noticed).
Enjoy your fun, I’m only playing and I quite enjoy a good scream.
Don’t worry, the mystery photo exercises your brain, and one day you will be saying “ah ha!” instead of “aaarrgh” :).
Excercises my brain !! aaaaaarrgh. What a dreadful idea.
I’m nothing if not stubborn. 🙂
Does it actually stretch the brain, but I’m not sure I’m on board with that. I can’t even touch my toes.
Quite right. I’ve never understood why anybody would want to touch their toes. Most unhygienic. It sounds like one of those fetish things (or is that feetish) 🙂
It’s for pulling beer.
Now there’s an interesting answer LOL!
I could go for a beer.
That’s very kind of you. 🙂
This is a tough one and you know that I’m usually a terrible guesser. It looks like a wooden shoe tree to me.
There are no terrible guesses 🙂
That’s right 🙂
I think this is a fancy doll’s leg & foot because of the ceramic baby shoe & the knit pants.
I am with Edith Levy on this one and because it is that time of year it needs a hat to keep warm… makes a lot of sense to me…
nothing here makes sense–obviously these people have all lost their senses–and I want to go for a beer with all of you next summer too
Wouldn’t that be fun??
I know, it’s a dottlewatt. 🙂
I’m afraid to ask what that is :).
ah ha the tables are turned 🙂
A knitted hat pulled over a pulley made of cookies and set in a porcelain vase. 😛
So, do you want to know the answer? Head on over to my blog post for today to find out. Congrats to everyone who got it right :). Here’s the link: https://photosfromtheloonybin.wordpress.com/2013/12/07/mystery-revealed/
