I Figured It Out. Can You?

by Sac Barb

I already knew I was dumber than the fifth graders.. 
but now it's the preschoolers?? 


Which way is the bus below traveling?
To the left or to the right?

Can you see me now?

Can't make up your mind? 
Look carefully at the picture again. 

Still don't know? 

Pre-schoolers all over the United States
were shown this picture and asked the same question.
90% of the pre-schooler's gave this answer.

"The bus is traveling to the left."

When asked, "Why do you think the bus is
traveling to the left?"

They answered:
Because you can't see the door to get on the bus."

Morning Glories!

LOL at the preschoolers!

We decided not to do the beach yet. Mr. Lynn D has been fighting a stuffed up head and sore throat.

It was probably a good decision since I woke up with a sore throat this morning.

Waving at everyone!

sacBarb said...

Good morning Lynn. Sorry you didn't get to go to the beach and even more sorry that you have a sore throat, too. I hope you both will get over the crud quickly so you can get to the beach.

sacBarb said...

The blog is supposed to have a picture of a bus, but it doesn't show on my computer. Am I the only one? The blog really doesn't make sense without the picture. :(

Tinka said...

Good Morning Lynn and Barb.

Sorry you aren't feeling well Lynn. We got the cold over the holiday too. I guess it's being in contact with a lot of people. It's not fun when you have to take down decorations. I always feel bad enough having to disassemble without having a cold to deal with.

Barb - I didn't get the picture either.

Have a great day. See you later.

Just_Lin said...

LynnD You look lovely in first today. I'm so sorry that you and Mr. LynnD are under the weather. Hope you get better quickly and can get to the beach soon. I thought blondes had more fun. You need to hurry up and make that true.

Just_Lin said...

SacBarb No bus pic for me, either, but thanks for the blog, anyway.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka I'm not taking my tree and decorations down, yet. I was late getting them up so I want to enjoy them a while longer. My tree is still in pretty good shape. It may just now be that it is no longer sucking up water.

Tina~in_ut said...

well hell....I can see it perfectly~

Mary/MI said...

Tina, no bus pic here either. I have seen it before so I knew the answer lol!

Sorry for all those under the weather. Jim seems to be doing better, he should, he has been babying himself enough lol! I picked up the rest of our equipment yesterday at the VFW,bought groceries for us and my neighbor, took all the decorations and tree down, fed the men, and walked the dog. I don't have time to get sick!

JustLin, I lol @ your area 51 comment about your needing the cabana boys more than me!!

Tinka, I bet your decorations are beautiful! I wish we could see them.

Time to walk the dog and run out to the mail box. The temps are in the 20s here. It will be a cold walk, also have to get neighbors mail. I need a trip to somewhere warm :) :) :)

Zona said...

BARB: Sorry can't see the pic either..but that's ok..I've got a good imagination! I probably wouldn't have gotten it powers of observation have really declined over the years! :D

LYNN: Get some rest..I hope you both feel better soon.

TINKA: Randy will be taking down the decorations this weekend..he says it makes him sad to do it. Me too. I always remember what my sister says.. "Merry Christmas..Happy New Year and then it gets hot." :(

J/LIN: Sorry I didn't get in to answer your moose horn question yesterday..hacking too much to even think. Yes..the horn was blown on NYE..we even have video! ;D

TINA: You must have one of them there new fangled kind of computers.. ;D

MARY: I think your wish for a trip somewhere warm is about to come true.. :D

JODI: I never knew snowman and cows could look so much alike.. ;D

DI: What are JODI and J/LIN drinking? Are they using..a...

♫Red Solo Cup♫ :D

Dianne/Denver said...

Zona, yup....they are using a red solo cup...lets have a party!!! Hope you are feeling better today. Your voice sounded like Randy yesterday.

Lynn, so sorry you are both sick. Get well and then head to the beach. Seems like everyone you talk to is sick. We are trying to stay well.

We might go see Flight at the movies tonight. I kind of dont want to go but Louis suggested it and he never suggests things to do. I went back to WW today and gained two pounds through December. I thought that wasn't too bad since I've been eating cookies and candy.

Tina, I can't see the bus either. I think younarectrying to fool us!!!

Mary, its cold but sunny here. There is a little wind and that makes it colder. Sounds like you are a busy gal. What a good wife....I should have married you!!!

JL, I think there is more to that story than Zona is telling. I guess we will know when we see the video for a blog...right Zona?

My daughter is having a lupus flare-up and is so miserable right now. She can't get into the dr until the 25th. These drs drive me crazy.

Barb, thanks for the blog. I get it without seeing the bus....I think!!

Tink, Louis is taking our decorations down now. He said if I'd feed him he'd take them down. That's a deal and I think I don't have to go to a movie. I wasn't in the mood too much.

Jodi, how are you feeling today? Our manor is like a hospital. But JL and I are still on the rehab branch so none of you blow any germs over here please.

Ok, guess I will go figure out dinner. Ho hum

Just_Lin said...

Tina Maybe you're hallucinating., ;)

Just_Lin said...

Zona there really a moose horn or is it your voice due to being sick? I can hardly wait for the video. ;)

Just_Lin said...

Mary My God, Woman! You sure do get a lot done in one day. I think just taking down the decorations and the tree would be enough of a project for one day. They don't call it "retirement" for nothing. All I did today was take myself out to lunch and visit with an acquaintance while I ate, got gas in the car, exercised at Curves, went to the grocery store for a few things for dinner, played with the dog and am now "retired" at my computer. I do have work to do for my employer but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne What did you decide on for dinner? I'm going to make a french dip sandwich and maybe salad. Thanks for reminding the sickies to not breathe in our direction.

Mary/MI said...

Wow, it actually got up in the low 30s today! Wopeeee!!

Zona, for a minute there I was thinking you were talking about some in-home-action! " "Merry Christmas..Happy New Year and then it gets hot." I almost blushed LOL!!

Tonight I made Spanish rice, enchiladas and tortilla chips. I took a plate to my neighbor and fed & watered his cats. Pretty easy day.

I agree with Dianne, all you with the nasty germs...stay on your side of the tree lol!

I am wondering if & when Jim's crap is going to hit me! Prolly about the time I want to board the plane to Hawaii!!

Lynnd,dam, both of you are down? So who is taking care of you two?? In our house, I am not allowed to get sick while they are!

Dianne, I now pronounce us wife & wife lol!! Let's go on a honeymoon cruise :)

Time to head to the basement for some exercising.............

Dianne/Denver said...

Mary,I'm game for that cruise. Ahhh, that sounds so fun right about now. We don't have to kiss do we?

JL, I talked myself into going to the grocery store and picked up some cabbage rolls. I don't go often as its still hard for me to walk far so I got the little cart and drove. When I came home all the Christmas was put away!! It was a fair trade. I even came home and rode my bike. Pt tomorrow

Just_Lin said...

Mary If you're going to get it, don't wait until the end of the month to do it.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne I haven't had cabbage rolls in a long time. Sounds good. So does a cruise with HOoters. Can you imagine how much fun we'd have?

Zona said...

J/LIN: Yep..there really is a horn..tho I'm not sure if it's moose or steer..someone told me once that mooses..moose?..don't have horns..they have antlers. All I know is it's LOUD..the whole neighborhood seems to love it though! ;D

MARY: LOL!! Sorry!

DI: I think my voice was a little deeper than Randy's had some of that Peter Brady voice changing action going on today..Nikki was kinda freaked out.. :D

J/LIN & DI: I don't think 2013 will be the year of the moose horn video blog..and I'm pretty sure I hear some cheering coming from waaaay up in the tree on that decision.. ;)

Gonna make some green tea..curl up under my Raiders blanket and read for a while. Have a good night everyone..thanks for the get well wishes.. :)

Just_Lin said...

Zona I wasn't sure if it was a moose horn or a horn to call moose...kwim? I hope you feel better in the morning.

Tina~in_ut said...

so I just axed hubby to check the blog on his iPad.....he can't see the bus either~ :(

Just_Lin said...

We all missed the bus. LOL

Tina~in_ut said...

lol J/L~ I guess I'm driving it~ :(

sacBarb said...

Well, it's a 'special' yellow bus. You all can use your imagination.
