I often find myself asking"What's THAT?"
Perhaps you do too. Most of the time, a Google search tells us what the object of our interest is. But sometimes it doesn't quite work the way you expect.
Here are three things that I had to recently identify. Can you figure out "What's that?" for each of these pictures?
1. This is an image of a widget in my house. Unfortunately, it's broken. I want to get a replacement, but I don't want to go to the hardware store and say "it's that thingie you turn to open the window."
Can you figure out what the correct name of this thing-with-a-handle-you-turn-to-open-the-window?
2. I found this in my Mom's garage this week. Here's a decent close-up photo of the gadget. It's about 3" in diameter (7.6 cm). It's a part of something larger. Can you figure out what it is? (And what it's a part of?) I believe it used to be a glossy black color, but time has made it a little beat up. Any ideas?
3. This is a picture of a place I visited a while ago. Unfortunately, it was before I was using Google Photos, so I couldn't just look this up. If you can tell the name of the place AND what kind of structure this is, I'm sure I'd recognize it. What's that? AND... Where's that?
As always, be sure to tell us HOW you figured out the answers. Details, people, details!
(And if nobody is making headway on #2, I'll drop a big hint next Monday.)
