One-Liner Wednesday – Works for Them!

You might remember my post from a few weeks ago when I asked if anyone knew what this might be:

Turns out it was a bag of water with a coin inside for discouraging bugs to come in the door.

So I decided to try it in my kitchen full of fruit flies:

They love it!

Turns out it works for them. 🙄

One-Liner Wednesday – You say potato, I say what?

A potato with eyes that look like, well, eyes, and a smiling mouth.

He was a happy spud: delicious, too.

#ThursdayDoors – What the …

Just a quickie for Norm Frampton’s photo prompt, Thursday Doors. I’m looking for suggestions on what this might be all about. It’s been there for weeks.

It’s empty apart from the clear liquid – the darkness inside is just a reflection.

Guesses?

#ThursdayDoors – Museum pieces

My son, Christopher, and I went on our yearly excursion to Toronto to the Royal Ontario Museum on Tuesday. The outside of the building is under renovation, but luckily I got pictures of the actual museum doors last year ( click here to see them). This year, I decided to take photos of some of the doors on display inside. It seems doors are interesting enough to keep …

Click on the photos for a larger image:

There were more doors in the museum, but these were all I managed to capture this time around.

The Thursday Doors prompt is brought to you by Norm Frampton. Click on his post and join in today! https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2017/08/03/thursday-doors-august-3-2017/
