Photo Hunters - Flexible

The word for Photo Hunters today is FLEXIBLE


The thumb above is a FLEXIBLE thumb. It's my husband's thumb.

The thumb below is not. That's my thumb. Do you see the bend in the thumb above that's not there in the thumb below?


All my life I've been kidded about my "Dumb thumbs" given that name by my brother. My thumb, as you can see, is very straight. Most people's thumbs are curved like my husband's.

In my whole life I've never met anyone with straight thumbs like I have. Do you have straight thumbs? I'd love to hear from you.

My hubby has a very crooked thumb. It's almost shaped like a 'L'. My thumb has a slight curve. Yours is the first straight thumb that I have seen. Maybe I didn't take notice all this time..... hehe.....

My thumb is not straight. My fingers are all very flexible. They are long and skinny. My sister used to tease me that I have fingers like a witch. *LOL*

Natalie said...

Mine are curved, sorry! I just did my first photo hunt ever, come check it out if you get a chance. Have a fantastic weekend! :)

Liza said...

Thumbs up! Very good idea ;) Happy weekend.

Er... never thought about the thumbness of me. Took a look, looks fairly flexible to me, pending in-depth investigation.

Good idea. Cheers.

Lynn said...

You know that I looked at my thumb while I'm looking at your pictures? Lol. So I can bend my thumb too just like your husband's. :)

LOL - great post for the theme this week! :-)

Have a good weekend.

Dragonheart said...

Both of my humans have very straight thumbs. Neither of them has a thumb that curves or bends back.

I'm naturally flexible this week.

Mine is straight too. Isn't genetics a strange thing? Great shot and wonderful take on the theme.

Interesting take on the theme. A dumb thumb is good enough to do the job.

Siani said...

I have a semi-dumb thumb! It's kind of half way between yours and your hubby's. Great take on this week's theme. Thanks for the visit and have a lovely weekend!

LadyBanana said...

My thumbs are somewhere in between, not that flexible and not that straight!

Great post idea!

Anon, Having a straight thumb like I do means you are very smart!!! But you are really dumb using curses in your second comment which just ended up being deleted...

I read you obnoxious comment before I read this one...

Heather said...

Hmm--my thumbs are relatively flexible, my moms are REALLY flexible--double jointed flexible.
