FSO: Small medium large

I am reposting this post I did in 2008 specially for Marja in Christchurch. Today, there is another after shock in her city. She posted a weather stone, and I remember seeing one in Waiuku. It was a very big stone. To those of you asking, it is really a stone. a mighty big one.

I notice the three of us qualified for small, medium and large. That was in 2006. Today, I would be moved to status small.

We went on a holiday in Waiuku, and were intriqued with this weather forecaster. The water engineer was naturally interested.
Member Voice for our third FMTSO Scavenger Hunt!!
Our official third scavenger hunt (July 8) was suggested by Kerry ~ Small ~ Medium ~ Large ~.

A reminder of the guidelines for our scavenger hunts:
Guide Lines:
* straight out of the camera, no editing
* one photo per word
* three words for each hunt
* add a fourth photo if you can find all three hunt words in one (or just post this one photo)
* hunt area includes your town, surrounding areas, surrounding countryside

Easy-peasy this week: (in her words)

Something small.
Something medium.
Something large.

Try not to confuse yourself like I just did when I thought about how size is a relative thing. But then I remembered this old ditty from Sesame Street, and it cheered me right up:

Oh, everything comes in its own special size
I guess it can be measured
By where you put your eyes
It's so big when you're close
It looks smaller back a bit
That's about the size of it

Gosh how have I missed so many posts? I don't think they showed up on my sidebar. What is a weather stone? I have heard of that giant extinct bird!! The shark bus is a scream, a way to be eaten by a shark but not get hurt. Shark is not that good for you, mercury or something.

It's a great picture worth showing again and it does fit the theme so well.
