I am visiting my daughter in Nottinghamshire and asked my grandson for some examples of wheels … he showed me his heelies and a working model of a Pod Wheel (like a Ferris Wheel, but with pods) for me to photograph … 

 

I plan to take some more pictures of different WHEELS and posting them …

 

 @serving_n_a_j  read my OP on the ENTRIES thread and wondered why I hadn’t mentioned gear wheels … @american_twin wondered why no mention of roller skates or skateboards … my reply to both was, “you can always write your own entry and include whatever you want!

The Mosaic was a Community Project on a wooden frame. We were involved in enlarging the original drawings from A4 to Lifesize on tracing paper using a grid

Somehow or other this picture disappeared off the previous post …

@What a lovely surprise to see two entries just now when I logged in!

 

@123kingarthur  I have never tried ‘meals-on-wheels’ … I don’t think they are available where we are, as I read somewhere (maybe local free paper) that funding was no longer available or maybe not enough volunteers? We are on committee for our local Talking Newspaper (and used to help prepare/record/read before commitments made things difficult) and it was missed by some who had used to get them … a 3 yr old’s mind is so uncomplicated, isn’t it! And literal

 

@an_droid  Thank you for starting us off this month! Who really knows why or how the wheel was invented? My grandson (budding architect at 19) thinks the printing press was the best invention (he thought there would be more of a twist in my OP) … I rather like continuity, myself!

 

@goofygirl  @dolly247  just a reminder that the new topic is up if you want to join in… @spiritquest  @standardbearer  Comments are welcome as well!  @polowoman @acetech  @gwpreston

I have reported the entry to the Educators to please move it to the correct thread.

 

Similarly, when comments are made in the entry thread, you go to the ‘hamburger’ icon at bottom corner of the post, go to last option (Report) and request it to be moved to the correct thread!  @standardbearer
