Well, This is a first. A guess what it does tool. Handle is about 4 inches long and 3/4 in in diameter. Hooks can rotate around short shaft that is about diameter of a large pencil. Determine use and I will add your name to this description if you want that kind of recognition. Have fun. Book in background is a dictionary with a convenient cover color and has nothing to do with actual use.
Another photo for those who might enjoy guessing what it is. The colors are as close to what I saw as I could show with the resolution and quality system I have. I took the photo because I was quite surprised to see the colors in such a pattern. Guess correctly and I will give you recognition here if you want it.
Another photo of something I found interesting. Actual size is only about 1 inch in diameter.
Take a guess. Send e-mail. If you ant your name with your guess here if it is correct, send me e-mail and I will edit the description here. It did not come out of an ocean.
Nobody seems to be willing to take a guess on these things. So, a hint and then close your eyes if you don't want to see the answer until you guess a few times.
This is true cow art and about 10 x 10 inches and a few inches thick. I guess old farmboys and cowboys should get this one almost immediately.
Lick, lick, slobber, lick, bunt, new licker, slobber...nothing like a raspy cow tongue to shape a block of mineral. Of course, some manure had to be washed off first before the photograph.
I suppose photos of the motorcycles and cyclists rolling through Winner on their way to Sturgis Rally might be more interesting, but this was closer and Jesse James will never be fashioning one of these in a totally artificially limited amount of time while some flunky searches for parts and some car or parts company hands over a few thousand of customizing parts.
Photos in Dakota, etc are prettier even if less interesting, but look around anyway.
