Last week’s Macro Monday puzzle was quite difficult, partly because some of you had never heard of charcoal dog biscuits, let alone seen one, so I tried to find you something more universal this week.
Now, I know these things are found all over the world. They might have a different appearance in different countries, but those which are accessible to the public usually look vaguely similar to this one, so hopefully you’ll all be in with a fighting chance!
Take a good look. This is something which is not found in a house, and in fact, very seldom indoors at all, apart from a few very specialised buildings. Usually they are found in the open air.Â I saw this one yesterday while walking Sid.
This particular one is a modern version of something which has been around for a very long time.Â According to one source,Â it was invented in 1804, which surprised me because I would have thought it was older than that.
Anyway.Â Off you go. Scratch those heads, jiggle those brain cells, and post your answer in the comments!Â I’ll be back again as usual tomorrow with a link to the answer, and I will also add the answer in the comments at that time.
Well, here we are on Tuesday evening and I bet you’re all waiting impatiently for the solution, aren’t you?Â Well, here it is! Congratulations to Mara, who was the first to guess correctly!Â Also to Colleen, who holds the record for correct guesses. Well done, you too!
I should also congratulate Tina and Toby, who both seemed to know more or less what it was but couldn’t think what it was called.
