What does this thing do?


Attention to detail
Deerfield Beach, FL, December 2010

We're still noodling with the water theme (you can noodle, too, here) and within that context I still find myself photographing things that most others might call unpretty.

Unpretty doesn't mean uninteresting. Not in my world, anyway.

Your turn: What was going through the mind of the guy - definitely a guy - who painted this?

He was too tired to avoid painting the handle,so took the easy way out and just slathered the whole thing..lol,or he wanted to camo it and frustrate whoever would need to adjust that handle.

I've never understood modern art.

I think he was thinking about lunch and a nice vanilla shake to go with it.

He was in a hurry and simply wanted to be done... of course with the paint on there, it won't turn.

Being in a hurry, or trying to hide a faucet shut off valve for something, (water-wet-theme!)???
and it might not be painted shut...I've been there done that kind of thing...don't tell anyone!

I haven't the foggiest clue as to why that faucet turn would be painted. I am too busy laughing over the idea.

Thank you for your kind comments and encouragement that you left for me the other day. While I am so very sorry you have had to deal with the same sort of hurt, it is comforting like you said to know that I am not alone.

I really like your blog site. You have a fun way of sharing your experiences.

Have a blessed and wonderful day.
