The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

Picture of the Week and The Weekly Riddle - the double edition

This Week I've consolidated two of my weekly post installments into one jumbo Friday post:
Picture of the Week 84 and Weekly Riddle 8!

My friend Roei Sadan has been traveling the world for two years now. Starting his journey in Alaska, I met him in Peru.
He's currently in Swaziland, Africa.
This weeks picture, titled by him "The Colors of Africa", is one of his amazing shots.
Check others out at his Picasa Album.


This week's riddle was pushed off due to a busy week of moving (When things are settled, rest assured an invite for the chanukas habayis farbrengin will go up here) - I'll have the answer up for the inquisitive of mind, G-d willing Sunday night.

Two arms,
Twelve eyes.
Always counting,
Never ending.


This one is worth 10 points.
5 additional points for anyone who can tell how many trips I made to Lithuania in the year 5766 (2006).
As well there will be a point given to the fifth, eighth, sixteenth person to comment on this post, as well as 6 points to the forty-second comment.*


Wishing everyone a good Shabbos!


*Note: Consecutive comments by the same person will not count - thus if you wrote comment number 4, saying something else in number five will not get you any points.

it's a clock.

The Real Shliach said...

How about if we point out that you can't spell "forty" correctly?

le7 said...

Dude it's a clock.

Mottel said...

-TRS: British spelling.

Yay I got the point!

The Real Shliach said...

I'll remember that...

e said...

clock. good one. I was thinking something along the lines of the choshen mishpat.

chanie said...

Clock makes sense....but why twelve "eyes"?

But sheesh, I was thinking along the lines of kabbala....

Wait..twelve eyes...that's like the creatures with huge eyes all over them, dripping pus, with all the eyes hurting and burning as a punishment for their sins? "V'lo taturu...acharei eineichem..."

chanie said...

(Hey, the above was the eighth comment...cool!)

Baleboosteh said...

Aawww! I knew the answer to this one...but it seems a couple of people got here before me :)

Snag Jr. said...

Is this a reference to a famous person in chabad foklore? I hope this is not a reference to R' Itcha Masmid or the current Rebbe?

Maybe all the stogies in Yoel Kahan's fingers would count as eyes. Who Knows!!!!

Mottel said...

-Snag JR: What happened? The three weeks are over, and with it the issur on rechilus and loshon hora!
It's actually a misnaged that looks at a sefer with two eyes, his chaver with two, his chaver's wife with another pair . . .

e said...

yeah! Let's throw insults at each other while we try to figure out who's flavor of Judaism is really what God had in mind. Sounds like a fun and profitable way to spend the afternoon.

Snag Jr. said...

Lishetushchuh,

It can't be a Chabdnik, cuz he needs more than twelve eyes to look at Rebbe's tziyur (?s)

Go whine to Hirshel....

chanie said...

Mottel- LOL.
Snag- double LOL.

Mottel said...

The answer is, as guessed by Chanie, a clock.

Snag gets 3 points, however, for originality.

Snag Jr. said...

Mottel

do you suffer from withdrawel when you don't study chasidus for a few days?

Ask Hirshel...

chanie said...

Wait...so I got the points for the clock?

e said...

you still haven't told us why the numbers are called eyes.

Mottel said...

-Chanie: Yes!
-E: Poetic licence

e said...

I'm VERY unimpressed. In a riddle, your metaphors ought to mean something.

chanie said...

Nice; thanks.

One thing....didn't sarabonne beat me to it?

chanie said...

(Not that I don't want them, but for the sake of honesty...)
