Wordless Wednesday | What's On My Chart Table


Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - Maybe it was the beer I had just had, but I thought it would be interesting to take a picture of what was on my chart table. 

2 - You'll find chart tables on boats. They're where you store and look at nautical charts. Although, nowadays, many people use electronic charts instead of paper charts.

3 - So what's on my chart table?
  • Some antibacterial cream for my head wound (it's a long story)
  • A napkin that I picked up off of the free table (with a very strange and mesmerizing pattern)
  • Two pairs of nail scissors which my very frugal friend used to "dissect" an old backpack so that she could re-purpose the zippers etc.
  • A flashlight (handy for seeing into the depths of the fridge and finding that last elusive yogurt)
  • A bike pump
  • A reminder to fill out our FBAR form (report of foreign bank and financial accounts that the US government requires us to file each year, I guess to make sure we're not laundering money, although would money launderers fill out these forms?)

What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  1. I don't think real criminals would fill out a form.

  2. I thought the money laundering note was something for your next novel. :)

  3. I didn't think of charts when I looked at this picture. Anything but.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

    1. It's more of a storage area than a chart table these days.

  4. Looks like a handy collection of items there. Ouch on the head wound. Hope it heals quickly!

    1. It's all good now - probably looked worse than it was with all of the blood.

  6. It reminds me of several desks i've seen, there's always interesting stuff on people's desks.

    1. Yes, it's a lot like that - having a peek at someone's desk.

  7. I didn't realize it was a napkin until I read it. I thought it was a pretty scarf or hankie because of the arty pattern

    1. It does seem like an unusual pattern for a napkin, but they do the job :-)

  9. Long stories are the best stories. You'll have to fess up to how that head wound came to be at some point, right?

    1. I think I talked about it in an earlier post - maybe my month in numbers one? In any case, a friend was passing something to me from her boat in the boatyard and rather than landing in my arms it landed on my head. There was blood everywhere.

  10. You've gotta watch out for those falling coconuts! (Didn't ya read your own book?)

  11. Were you trying out the suggestions from “how to commit murder in a boatyard”? Hope it’s not too serious.

    1. It wasn't too serious, but did take a week or so to heal up. It kind of was like testing out one of my murder mystery plots in real life :-)
