On one of our many hikes along the Boise River, Len and I came across this rock. What caught our attention is the perfectly round hole in it:
After continuing on our merry way, we tried to one-up each other on the different types of holes there are. Our list includes:
Loophole, donut hole, drainage hole, keyhole, watering hole, black hole, gopher hole, post hole, sinkhole, pothole, a hidey-hole, bullet hole, and then, of course, there’s the a$$hole—which made us both laugh like dorky junior high kids.
What can you add to the list of holes?
Very funny. Hole in the heart? 💔
Fatima — Good one!
I loved gopher hole. Only prairie people would know that one! I´ve tripped over many of them in my youth.
Darlene — I like your assessment that prairie people know ALL about the ins-and-outs of gopher holes 🙂
Wormholes, of course, the basis for so much good sci fi (not to mention speculation). How fun.
Janet — Oh, now THAT’S a good one! 🙂
Olga — By Jove, without a rabbit hole, Alice would have never had her grand adventure in Wonderland! 🙂
Glad to know others are out enjoying the trails as well. Blessings 🙂
GrumpyGorman — Thank you. Blessings right back atcha 🙂
Mole hole! Cher xo
Cher — Yes, indeed! 🙂
I see lots of puzzling, round holes when I walk in the preserve: gopher hole? snake hole?
Yesterday the mower came through, making the openings more obvious.
Marian — I’d take a gopher hole over a snake hole ANY day of the week! 🙂
Hell hole, maybe?
Craig — You betcha it counts! 🙂
How about buttonhole, pigeonhole, peephole, blowhole….? Great picture. I wonder what made that perfectly round hole. Now, I’m going to be thinking about holes all day, Laurie!
Donna — Great additions! We stuck the hole jackpot with you 🙂
A pessimistic hole – the hole in my heart for the loss of a more unified world.
Carol — And it’s a crying shame that we don’t have a more unified world.
It looks like a deteriorating millstone, perhaps. They have a perfect round hole like that.
Some people, when being very rude, would say, “Shut your pie hole!”
Not me, of course. I would never.
Arlene — Oh, my gosh. I completely forgot about pie hole! 🙂
Too funny! there is a whole lot of holes in this story…
Jeff — You’re right, there’s an awful lot of holes in this story 🙂
Pie hole but I am not sure that is nice to say! Headphones attachment hole or port, which now the iphone no longer has. Wholly funny hole post!
I just bought 2 face masks from Terrill Welch’s art on Red Bubble They were reasonably priced and will arrive by June 5th which is far better than June 25-July 8 and they are beautiful. They should give me great protection for greeting a new grandchild and did I say they are beautiful and washable.
Patricia — Ohhhhhh, thank you for letting me know about Terrill’s face masks on Red Bubble. I’m going to go check them out! 🙂
port hole bore holes sump hole elevator hole hole in the wall gang peep hole key hole holey swiss cheese drain hole The architect had a few words to add Good brain exercise
grommet hole, hole punch, his brain is in gear!
Patricia — Wow, Jackpot! Thank you 🙂
We have a neighbor with a license plate that reads AceWeaver for his 4 golf hole-in-ones.
Shirley — Now that’s CLEVER! 🙂
Good Gravy! Never even thought about so many holes. Dennis gave me a book once called Holes, I thought it lacked….everything. I dug three holes in the garden today and that’s all I got.
Sandi — I’m laughing at the title of the book that Dennis got you, and that it lacked everything!
Three holes in the garden today? Not bad. Not bad at all!
Bolthole …has anyone had it ? Somewhere to escape to has always been my motto.
A££hole …shame on you children 😂😂.
Cherry — I’ve read about boltholes (a place where a person can escape and hide) in murder mysteries and suspense thriller novels. Are you a fan of those, too?
Very much so Laurie 👍
Hi Laurie, there’s a hole-in-one. Thanks and much appreciated for sharing
