What Is This?

Guess correctly and win a prize

Ron showed me a handful of these the other day…and I don’t mean the quarter. If you are the first person to guess correctly, you will win a prize shown below.

Seed dolphins

A ten-year old friend carves little dolphins out of these seeds. He’s very talented. So, guess away!

I will be in the states for three weeks. If you are the winner of the correct guess, I will email you for your address, so I can send you a seed dolphin.

Hang in there with me while I am in travel mode. I won’t be able to post regularly for three weeks. Thanks for your patience.

  1. Hi Debbie and friends of “Rewired”,

    I am going to guess it is a piece of volcanic rock that was spewed many years ago.
    It sure look that way.
    But I don’t need the sea dolphin prize, although I appreciate the thought. Just keep the stories about Ron and you and your adventures going. That would be enough of a prize.

    Again, great literary work.
