Take A Guess #31


Blogger micki said...

Thanks for all the great comments on yesterday’s self-portrait/test shot. I wasn’t too sure about it. Doris asked how I’ll get the grease off of the filter. I don’t plan on taking it off any time soon. It’s an extra UV filter that has a small scratch on it. I’ve gooked it up pretty good with the vegetable shortening and as long as I keep it cool, I should be good to go for awhile. If I ever do clean it, I’ll just grease it up again.

We received so much rain from Thursday night until some time last night (I fell asleep) that there is flooding worse than we had during Hurricane Isabel and during Ernesto last month. The full moon combined with high tide and water that had almost receded back to normal made for so much destruction. Whole areas of the towns and cities down here were cut off due to the flooding. Homes and cars damaged, small bridges washed away. I saw a house flooded up to its roof. I went down to the river to turn around to get the mail yesterday, and saw something I’d not seen in the five years we’ve been here. The dock was not only completely covered, but completely covered by several inches of water. The strip of land that forms an inlet on the cove of the river was completely covered by water, as was the four to five foot high grasses that grew on the land. This was a good two hours after high tide. I hope my egret and heron found safe ground to stay on. Obviously the river was spilling over its banks. The winds were blowing at 50mph and gusting higher. My husband left to go out yesterday morning and had to grab the chainsaw to cut yet another tree up that had fallen across the driveway. The rain loosens the soil, the wind blows the trees, they have nothing to hold onto, and down they come. Our yard looks like it’s trying to become a lake. I might have to swim my laps around the house today, because I won’t be running.

OK, it’s time to take a guess!

No a Cheesel?
This image has an aluring texture and focal point too, BTW.

I've had an unfortunate, extended absence from your blog, and I come back to this - quite a mystery, it is.

I like the previous comment about the gingerbread man, though. I'm going with that.

Or a glove?

Micki, I have no clue what this is! :-) Again, your stories are quite interesting!!! Your husband is an expert with that chain saw. He's had to use it so much this year!

Hm... egg? I have no idea, but I agree, lovely warm colour, and that perspective sure makes it hard to guess.

Sorry to have been so missing in action lately. But now I'm back and there shall be plenty of visiting.

Looks like a mini muffin or small puffy biscuit to me Micki. Fingers crossed the rain eases and moves on from your place. Please send it over here... we desperately need it. You'll not only have enough firewood for next year but the year after and maybe the year after that as well. :-)

This looks like the sponge tip to a makeup aplicator for eye shadow.

I hope you dry out soon.

No clue this time. Did you get some pictures of the high water? Sounds scary.

but the make-up brush kind of applicator made me doubt...
this is tough

(any better weather yet?)
