weird object friday

My brother, Bob, recently brought me back this wonderful souvenir from his recent trip. I even have him thinking about weird objects.

It looks like a necklace and is beautifully colored. But, the most beautiful thing about it, is it's sound...


The Ocarina is an ancient flute like wind instrument. Bob purchased it from a young boy selling souvenirs while visiting Peru. And it is my new best friend, one whistle and the dogs respond right away.

Very cool that you've spread the weird word; and you got a gift out of it too!

I used to sell ocarinas when I owned a little funky kiosk at a mall. That brings back memories.

I wonder if that would do the trick with our hearing-impaired dog...hmmm....When's his next trip to Peru?

I'm dying to hear what it sounds like. Hope you bring it to work next week. That's a neat gift.

I would have never guessed that it played music. Very neat!!
