    Hi everyone,

    mmmMekitty and I have been playing eye spy over in the cafe, and i thought we should perhaps build a thread about it.  let us stave off the  loneliness with just sharing what we can see anonymously.

    I'd like someone else to start please as it is not my turn... mmm already guessed that i spyed my fruitless yet loving "pear tree" that started with "P".

    What? Moonlighting are you? I suppose I could teleport my 'M' eye-spy to this new thread? I'll even collect all your guesses and send them here, too, if you like? (I suspect you would prefer to get my 'M' out of the TRCafe anyway.... just give me a mo...

    Okay, I'm back...let me just drop this here...

    I began with:
    I spy, with my muddy* eye, something beginning with M )& it is not me)!

    DnG said:
    mud

    I said:
    No, I wasn't giving clues yet, 'cause I think there are enough if you just look around a bit. 😼

    I then added:
    Or maybe I am...
    ('cause I'm not completely clueless)

    DnG said:
    my guess for eye spy is a mouse

    I said:
    (with references to Xmas & Pear tree),
    Sorry, DnG, not a mouse, not even stirring anything inside the house

    DnG said these guesses:
    mousemat?

    molotov cocktail?

    membership card?

    murky window?

    I said:
    Oo I hadn't thought of using a Molotov cocktail...hehehe ... Maybe get some landscaping done in the process... 😸
    cooler->warmer-> cooler->warmer->keep stumbling around, you're sure to notice it soon.

    --& that brings us up to date.

    Note *I said ‘muddy’ because I was so surprised I got dizzy and fell over into the mud! & that just may be a clue...

    Please enjoy a game of eye spy.

    My mum and dad and I would play eye spy on long drives during holidays, as we travelled our large nation. One joke that dad would occasionally make when it was his turn is.

    eye spy with my little eye, something that begins with r.

    Road! yep son u guessed correctly, I am watching the road whilst i drive.

    next one from dad might be...

    eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with w, two words, w____ l___.

    White line! yep son, i am watching the white line as i drive!

    Hi DnG

    cool>little cooler>little warmer again>& a little warmer still

    When your dad said his I Spy jokes, did you laugh or groan or both?

    We had a long road trip, across the USA, lots of kid cooped up in a car for days and days. I can't remember exactly how long. & there was even a bit into Canada. Can you imagine? Two adults and nine kids? How many on your road trip?

    We played spotting a particular number plate game, too. I was no good at these games, my eyesight being poor even then. One day, I remember us kids all being given a 'Gobstopper'& told we were not allowed to bite or chew it, only to suck, and see who could make it last the longest. What do you reckon? They wanted us to shut up a while?

    Keep stumbling around, I'm confident you'll soon have a eureka moment.

    Aw h you don't have a working definition of chaos? I am here to help!

    Sadly, all your guesses are getting colder...perhaps if you toss them all over the place with carefree abandon ... what will you have then?

    I am happy to play. I enjoy the diversion, and I have this little mmMekitten inside who sometimes wants to be kittenish, as is only natural for self to be, being not grown up yet.

    😺

    mild mannered man? = Who, Clarke Kent?
    mist = A story by Stephen King?
    maker = of what? Money?, Pasta? Rice? Bread? Don't tell me - The Universe!
    money = What Money?

    Or: Money tree? Making Money,, a book by Terry Pratchett, that was worth money to him, Pocket Money, Spending Money, Money Bags, Monopoly Money., Money, Money, Money, ...

    My problem was that many games required that players have better eyesight than I did. My sibs took advantage of my poor eyesight. Here I think I am in with a much better chance!

    Yay! It surely is a MESS. 😺You stumbled into it, & now it is all over you!

    But, I'm here to clean it all up. I feel in need of some strenuous exercise, release some tension. Would you mind if I throw some things? I've been hiding this rubbish skip just for this moment.

    If you want, you can throw some things too. You take one end of that mild-mannered man, I'll take the other & on three! One! Two! Three!😺

    Maybe we keep the Money? 😼We can wash the Mud off. No one will notice the difference.

    & then it can be your turn, unless someone else is lurking & would like to play? We can always play more than one I Spy at once, couldn't we? Please?

    Another 'P'?

    Surely not another Pear Tree?

    It's late, what about a Pillow? Pillow! Or Pillow Fight?

    We gotta have feather filled pillows for a proper pillow fight & Proper!

    They might be Pigeon feathers? Pigeon!

    What about a Plough? To plough this mess away, instead of filling the skip? Plough

    Or have you pushed all the mess into One BIG Pile?Pile! Or is it you Pushing me?

    Phew, Phew?? Possible - Possible? Possibility?

    Possum!

    P, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, p, goes my little Putt-putty Golf Cart! ⛳

    Oh I didn't know this is your office!

    I suppose... unless I am mistaken, I can see Piles of Paper, Pens, Push-pins, a Printer or two, a dozen or so shelves of Pulp fiction titles, a really nice PC, too, a Picture on a a Panelled wall, & beyond the Painted window frame, through the crystal clear Pane of glass , you can see: a Partition, a Parked Porsche an a Park bench, and a Park as well, with some Paving all around and a couple Paths crossing it. In the middle is a Pergola in Puce.

    I'll see what you see, through that doorway tomorrow...

    take care,

    mmMekitty

    Next door, you have a lovely Pianola! You didn't even know you had that before you spied it in there, did you?

    Is it the Paraphernalia in your peripheral vision?

    Or it is a Plaque on the wall, above your head, where visitors can see how we honour you.?

    Or you are looking at the word "President" engraved on the Toblerone™-shaped Prismatic Pearlite bar? Look, beside the Pretend Pipe.

    Or is it the Prettily Patterned Pendulum light overhead?

    You do have exquisite taste!😻

    Or the Psychedelic ☮ Poster? Cool!

    Or the Puzzled cat Prowling around your office?

    mmMekitty

    It would be so much fun to have other Players. Do you see a Player coming along to Post a Proposed Possible answer to your I Spy?

    Pastel Paint?

    Polly the Parrot, on her Perch?

    The Pearl of the Pearl-handled letter opener?

    The Pie you haven't finished yet?

    The Pixels on your screen?

    The Pupils of my eyes?

    The Possibilities of what could Possibly be in your office?

    One Person (yourself), or other People? (not including me; I'm a cat)

    your on the right track using lots of p's that is the first letter yes yes yes.

    p1234.

    that is ur hint for helping u. I am a soft and generous man who likes to make things easy for people only after they have struggled a little bit like a fish on a hook, or a mouse under the claw.

    Hi, Topsy,

    I don't think we'll ever find out what DnG had spied; he's become Guest9337, & I don't know why.

    Perhaps he's moved his office, (probably because I wouldn't leave), to another Place, like a Planet....

    But we could start a new I Spy, if you like?

    Anyway, if you just go over & look in that room, you'll see I left a Pianola, with a rare Gershwin roll ready to roll!

    *

    I have written a few times in, here:

    PETS - gotta love them! Share funny, loving stories about pets and animals.

    or you might like to post your questions, here:

    Introducing mmMekitty

    which is where I began with BB. I have spoken about Mekitty there. I'm not an expert on 'dastardly' cats, just knowing a couple perhaps. I wrote about Dennis in "Pets...".

    Good. 😸

    I have been thinking, because our I Spy is only limited by our imaginations, & therefore, could be anything, maybe we could incorporate '20 Questions', along with the odd, sometimes very odd, clue. We won't even be limited to animal, vegetable or mineral, would we?

    That okay with you?

    I'm getting really tired tonight, so maybe we do start tomorrow. You come up with an I Spy, & I will too, & we can Spy stuff simultaneously, together!
