Tuesday Photo Prompt

Todays Photo prompt from HS/MS/HS is:

Handle: To touch, hold or move with the hand or a part of anything designed to be held or grasped by the hand.

I have a dozen handles around here, from letter openers to doorknobs to coffee mugs. But I managed to narrow it down to just a couple shots.
Speaking of mugs... here's the unique handle to one of the Man's Navy steins. Anchors away! (hehe)

And then, simply because I love pretty things and couldn't resist the shot... how about the handle to a crystal bell my grandmother gave me. It's kept high up on a shelf so the kiddo wont destroy it. Every now and then I pull it down to give it a little ring. The kiddo says it sounds like fairies music.

Not to be picky or anything *koff koff* but I believe the correct word is "aweigh", not "away". When the anchor is aweigh it is clear of the bottom and the ship is free to start moving off on its voyage ... whereas if the anchor was away, then you might have to get it back somehow if you wanted to use it again another time.

aweigh... I'd don't, honestly, think I've ever thought about the spelling. Makes sense when you break the word down to the separate parts and meanings etc. Cool *grin* I love how smart you are... I'd really hate to be puffing after an anchor trying to catch it just so I could use it whew
