I can't believe I've been doing this for 11 weeks in a row. Anyway, I was going to give you all a hint, but half of you managed to guess the truck a couple of weeks, for a most rare moment in time-my lips are zipped. (Until it's time to eat my daily little chunk of Dove's dark chocolate, which I will gladly enjoy after I do my laps around the house.)

Truly a stumper, hmmm...
If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that this is detail from the headset portion of a bicycle or tricycle, the part where the steering column and handlebars go.

If I had to venture a guess :-)

Aha, it's a contraption for humanely capturing beetles or as you Americans say "bugs", prior to releasing them via the screw stopper, for photographic duties. I like your bicycle pics. PS, sorry I guessed so quickly.

Well, it looks like a stop-nut (I think that's what they are called), probably on a bicycle or tricycle.

MMMMM....Dove chocolate.....mmmmmmm.

Looks more like a dial on a lantern or stove or something of that kind. Me right? Me right? Me right? Me right? Me right? Me right?

So what me win? :)

Looks to me like a screw thing for raising and lowering the handlebars on a scooter.

Here I thought my "guess what" was new and fun. =) I guess I just haven't been visiting your blog long enough.

No idea, Micki, but I like the minimalism and background here. It's very strong abstract. Regards, Brent

I think it's the mechanics on top of a public toilet (possibly a urinal). Either that or a bottle jack.

It's your robot's "hand me that other filter and go make me a cup of tea" button, isn't it?

This is a tough one. I, originally, thought it was a valve of some kind like on a pressure lid . . but, reading the other tries, I’m going over to cycle adjustment on the handlebars. Btw, I, too, am finding your text overlapping the pics on Firefox, IE.7 and AOL. Been happening for coupla days but it don’t spoil my fun none.

hi, micki. well, i won't say 'oh! it's beautiful...', 'oh... it's awesome', 'brilliant shot', 'fantastic' and thousand of bla bla bla just to please you.

what i can say is that, you're creative and never run out of ideas.
