Of Rust and Wood


Can you guess what the above photo is a picture of? you have 3 photos to scroll past before I tell you


While Wandering With Camera in HAND, I spied this stick that fell and speared itself on the screw. isn't that amazing? YOU KNOW IT IS so stop laughing


Have you guessed yet, last stop to the answer, below is the hole the dratted woodpecker put in my oak limb that holds the baby Staghorn plant. (6 am update on Staghorn, it is down from TS Debbie, she is sitting in the gulf beating us up, rain and rain and rain, all bridges are closed, 12 tornadoes, 1 dead and she is hanging around for 2 more days, WE are fine) but so far we lost our banana tree and staghorn and the pool is full of limbs and trash, a whole day of work waiting for Bob


Here is the photo of what the first shot is. do you know now?




It is a plumbers cooker to melt lead in.  and below is R2D2's baby brother. I told that to my husband and he said who is R2D2?   do you know?

I know R2D2 but have never heard of his contraption. That is the biggest hole I have ever seen a woodpecker make!

You got mutant Woodpeckers! Deccy x

Do you have any of C3PO's cousins around? That is quite the contraption. It reminds me of a set up my FIL used to heat the pot for cooking crabs.

That was one busy woodpecker to make a hole that big.

GOD keep you and all there, safe!

Sorry to hear you are having wild weather. I hope you stay safe. That sounds funny "1 dead and she is hanging around for 2 more days" I hope she doesn't start to smell.

So glad you are staying safe! I do know R2D2. My dad has had a plumbing company for over thirty years and I don't remember ever seeing one of these. You have the coolest stuff around.
That hole is really big! You must have some big woodpeckers!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

R2D@ is from Star Wars.
Glad to read that you and Bob are safe from the storm, too bad about the bannana tree.

Ann said...

I do know who R2D2 is but never saw the movie. I may be the only one. I never would have guess in a million years what that was even after looking at the picture

KleinsteMotte said...

Praying you are spared more damage .Poor banans. Poor you. RUSTY stuff for sure.

photowannabe said...

Love your wood and rust and I certainly remember R2D2.
Like others have said that is a huge hole that a woodpecker did.
I'm glad you are safe from the terrible storms pounding you.
The weather seems crazy all over the place. Be safe and take care.

I know who R2D2 is, but I've never seen this particular type of contraption before.
