They did just that with me hay loft in the barn as it had a secret hatch that droped down to stalls below, and there own private entry!! Kids are great! I played in the loft as a small child also... me loved it too! spent many a night in there Hiding from the boogie who lived with me!!!! HA HA HA HA>>>> never knew where I was the whole time.... My safe zone!!LOL LOL

ALL OF THESE ARE RELATED IN SOME WAY ----





What way is it?

Think Romeo and Juliet


Before I got to feeling so bad I stopped posting, I posterd the above question.

Below the picture identifying the plants (one is not too common)you will find the answer.




In Rome & Julie, Julie says

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet."

THE ANSWER

All of these plants are memebers of the family "Rosaceae," the rose family. Besides producing pretty floweres it is one of the most economically important family of plants in the world, outside of grains and beans.

Having been out of action for a while, it is probably time for me to resume my crafty mental manipulations of all you easily deluded people by posting some thing only an alien census taker might recognize. (Or perhaps Neil and/or Doctor Beaver)

What is it? - Good Luck!




NOT!

No, LO, keep going. One of the three generic items is correct but we need to be somewhat more specific than generic.

The top looks like the roof of a cat's mouth- but there are no teeth . . .
a toothless cat?

Well, Im not sure about this one either, but i reckon i can see a thorn/spiky fang-thing on both sides of the 'inner' part of the image. So, maybe if it's not an electron microscopy of something quite small, then maybe a snakes' mouth?

I agree about the snakes mouth, the only thing that baffles me is the fuzzynes around the edges of the mouth,.. wouldn't a snakes be much smoother?? Not so much rope or fur like.. ?

Yeah, i had been thinkin that too, but there are definitely spiky/fang things in there. And maybe the rope-like fuzzyness is in fact the mesh of a net holding said creature?
