Did You Get Close?


Friday 11 July, 2014 by Uncle Spike

For this week’s Guess What!’…
Did you get anywhere close this time?


It was the spinning wheel of a water meter!!



The direction being critical to ensure the volume counters work correctly!




There were quite a few attempts this time.

ANNETTE came so close, so gets a special mention too !

  1. Well, I’d never have guessed that and I was nowhere close with my guess.


  2. How do I collect my prize?

    Good one Uncle Spike! Thanks for the mention, but I would never have got it. Maybe because we are lucky enough not to have a water meter!

      Wow, even here in the developing world we have had them for almost 10 years. Better luck next time; you fought a brave battle 🙂

        They are coming. People in some areas of England were given a choice of whether they had them or not some time ago so maybe they are compulsory now. Here in Scotland water is never a problem so they obviously don’t need to ration it yet. It is good that we don’t have to think about it.
        I really enjoyed trying to work out the puzzle – it was an interesting one – thanks. Have to keep the old grey matter working now I have retired.

    Lying in bed last night I did think of an electricity meter but not a water meter. Funny, because Mr Goannasnake used to be our local water officer and did the meter readings.


  6. man, I wouldn’t have ever figured that one !!!
