Hands On

Handwrought Hand Prints, Auburn, Alabama  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



This handiwork of handprints made by hands 
pressed on a wall make a handsome handcrafted image to contrast with yesterday's handrail. 

(I just learned there are 174 words in the English language that begin with the word "hand". To celebrate this handy discovery, I'm going to ring my handpicked handbells while doing a handstand until the handmaidens learn how to handle the handclasps on their handbags and retrieve their handkerchieves!)

  7. Did you know that Michelangelo said "A man paints with his brains and not with his hands."

    Wrong again!

  8. Ah! I didn't realize there's even 174 words with hands on it! I wonder how many words that end with hand e.g secondhand? :P

  10. No way!
    174 words?
    That many?!
    Did they remove "handicapped"?
    Some say that's too offensive.
    But we still use it rather often in Malaysia!
    Ha, you know what, D.
    It's just "labelling".
