Eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with ____

Community Member

Hi everyone,

mmmMekitty and I have been playing eye spy over in the cafe, and i thought we should perhaps build a thread about it.  let us stave off the  loneliness with just sharing what we can see anonymously.

I'd like someone else to start please as it is not my turn... mmm already guessed that i spyed my fruitless yet loving "pear tree" that started with "P".

What? Moonlighting are you? I suppose I could teleport my 'M' eye-spy to this new thread? I'll even collect all your guesses and send them here, too, if you like? (I suspect you would prefer to get my 'M' out of the TRCafe anyway.... just give me a mo...

Okay, I'm back...let me just drop this here...

I began with:
I spy, with my muddy* eye, something beginning with M )& it is not me)!

I said:
No, I wasn't giving clues yet, 'cause I think there are enough if you just look around a bit. 😼

I then added:
Or maybe I am...
('cause I'm not completely clueless)

DnG said:
my guess for eye spy is a mouse

I said:
(with references to Xmas & Pear tree),
Sorry, DnG, not a mouse, not even stirring anything inside the house

DnG said these guesses:

molotov cocktail?

membership card?

murky window?

I said:
Oo I hadn't thought of using a Molotov cocktail...hehehe ... Maybe get some landscaping done in the process... 😸
cooler->warmer-> cooler->warmer->keep stumbling around, you're sure to notice it soon.

--& that brings us up to date.

Note *I said ‘muddy’ because I was so surprised I got dizzy and fell over into the mud! & that just may be a clue...

yo mmMekitty.

Thanks for joining the eyespy thread, i am sure we will continue to chat in the other threads.

warmer = molotov cocktail. and, warmer = murky window.

ok.. mat? mattress? meaning? mildew?

My mum and dad and I would play eye spy on long drives during holidays, as we travelled our large nation. One joke that dad would occasionally make when it was his turn is.

Hi DnG

cool>little cooler>little warmer again>& a little warmer still

When your dad said his I Spy jokes, did you laugh or groan or both?

We had a long road trip, across the USA, lots of kid cooped up in a car for days and days. I can't remember exactly how long. & there was even a bit into Canada. Can you imagine? Two adults and nine kids? How many on your road trip?

We played spotting a particular number plate game, too. I was no good at these games, my eyesight being poor even then. One day, I remember us kids all being given a 'Gobstopper'& told we were not allowed to bite or chew it, only to suck, and see who could make it last the longest. What do you reckon? They wanted us to shut up a while?

Keep stumbling around, I'm confident you'll soon have a eureka moment.


mild mannered man?




thank you for playing with me. back then when we did such things, i was an only child.

Aw h you don't have a working definition of chaos? I am here to help!

Sadly, all your guesses are getting colder...perhaps if you toss them all over the place with carefree abandon ... what will you have then?

I am happy to play. I enjoy the diversion, and I have this little mmMekitten inside who sometimes wants to be kittenish, as is only natural for self to be, being not grown up yet.

mild mannered man? = Who, Clarke Kent?
mist = A story by Stephen King?
maker = of what? Money?, Pasta? Rice? Bread? Don't tell me - The Universe!
money = What Money?

Or: Money tree? Making Money,, a book by Terry Pratchett, that was worth money to him, Pocket Money, Spending Money, Money Bags, Monopoly Money., Money, Money, Money, ...

My problem was that many games required that players have better eyesight than I did. My sibs took advantage of my poor eyesight. Here I think I am in with a much better chance!

do you spy a Mess?
