What is it?


Right - we will start off with an easy one. Clue: They come in all shapes and sizes (ooer, missus).

I will post up the un-cropped photo as soon (or as soon as I get home) as someone gets it, and the first correct answer gets a round of virtual applause.


I told you it was easy - it's a small paint brush belonging to H.I.

If I have time, I will make the next one more interesting tomorrow, plus boost the content by discussing the filth and sedition that I am renowned for.

  1. If you hadn't mentioned "shapes" I'd immediately been reminded of a washer woman's board (that's the left part of your photo. Whatever it is, it's old and tinny and probably useful. The right - I don't know - a paint roller in a tray?

    Don't say I don't try on very little evidence.

  4. Oh I know! It's what my Gran used to call a 'whatsybobbit'.

    Actually, it made me think of the old noisemakers my Grandfather used to send we kids out to the garden with: an old noisemaker to frighten off the critters, winged or otherwise, who liked to raid.

    1. Who needs a noisemaker when you have me?

    2. Noisemake? Would that be before, during, or after the nightly onanism session? Doesn't your hand get a wee bit sore?

    3. All of the above, plus more.

  5. I'm posting up the undoctored picture before I retire to my boudoir for the nightly onanism session. You have a few hours.

  6. It is part of an old fashioned washboard.

  7. Is the onanism reference a clue or simply the joy of anticipation?

    1. I am too far gone to anticipate the joy of onanism.

  8. Well, it has a pretty fancy silver for the part that holds the bristles for a paint brush. You should charge more for the little boot. I think it belongs in the Smithsonian. Frances?

    1. Yes, Donna wins this one. HOORAY! The next will - hopefully - be more testing.

    2. I forgot to tell you I work for MI5, identifying partial pictures. I was surprised that I had to look up onanism. I've never heard nor read that one.

    1. Oh, don't do that. You're either in or out of this silly game. "I KNEW WHAT IS WAS!' Then why didn't you say so, or just not say anythng?????

    2. I also though I spied a paintbrush, Rachel, but am glad that Donna saw it first.

      Tom, maybe you will continue this puzzle feature?

      Best wishes.

    3. For the same reason I have never set the clock on this blog - it pisses you off.

    4. What with this and being bullied at my advanced age, it really is as if I have returned to my school days.

  11. I'm looking forward to the filth and sedition, personally.

    1. Take no notice, Jennifer, he cannot stand the idea of anyone getting any comments without the shameless use of Facebook and Twitter as publicity tools.

  12. A brush! I wouldn't have guessed that, but can add a Hyacinth quote: "If you promise not to brush against my walls. They have recently been redecorated up to and beyond British standards."
