    1. Good question! It’s a piece of wood, actually a close-up of a broken table at the market-place.

        1. Haha ๐Ÿ˜† They’re not actually selling it, I put it in a wrong way; it’s a close-up of an empty stand at the market-place. On the other hand, during Christmas time they do sell remainders of branches, in fact waste that remains after they make advent wreaths and such.

          1. An excellent question. I don’t know! Either for firewood or for decoration — some people would put the stray branches in vases, perhaps decorate it instead of or along with their Christmas tree. I just found it ridiculous that anyone would dare to sell waste…

          3. Yep, people do buy odd things. I think I should set up a garage sale and give it a try. We’ve got a lot of odd things to put away…

      1. Haha my apologies. That picture reminds me of my younger days playing in my backyard and putting my hand on an old wooden post that I would later regret.

        1. No problem, I was just kidding, but of course, you couldn’t tell that when I didn’t even put a smiley face in the comment ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sure, we all have our splinter accidents…

          Now you made me recall my husband’s accident as a kid, which I obviously didn’t see but can vividly imagine: he stepped on a rake (or something else this ridiculous) and drove the iron spike through his foot. Eek!

          1. Of course, smiley is king!!

            That sounds seriously painful, and I can’t even imagine the pain he felt when that happened! Can he still walk?

          2. You’re right, it must’ve been shocking. Fortunately, my husband had a full recovery — kids can survive anything! — and has no permanent consequences. ๐Ÿ™‚
