B/ABC

 Elgin Park, Uxbridge, Ontario

B is for bench. Probably not comfortable (I didn't try it) but it sure is pretty!

2-letter word starting with B

This is a real word found in the Official Scrabble Dictionary, 5th addition. I'm sure some of you think BO stands for box office or body odour...and I guess it does, but that is not the meaning given in the scrabble dictionary where it's slang for friend.  No, I have never seen or heard this slang word used in a sentence, bo. (AND spell check doesn't like it either!)

I am joining ABC Wednesday  HERE

Love the ornate bench but I think the scrabble dictonary is scrapping the barrel with the word BO

Maks said...

Fantastic! It's very strange, but beautiful. I greet! :)

diane b said...

Must remember that. The bench doesn't look comfortable.

Que maravilha de cadeira.
Um abraço.

Alica said...

I'm not sure how comfy that bench would be either, but it's pretty!

sonia a. mascaro said...

I agree with you, probably not comfortable, but beautiful indeed!

neat looking bench

A beautiful bench but indeed not so comfortable I think.

The bench does look nice, but probably not very practical. Don't try to understand the Scrabble words, just use them to your advantage! ;-)

Giga said...

Imaginative pictures to the topic. The sea and the bench is not comfortable, but certainly very decorative. Regards.

Small Kucing said...

Yea probably the bench wont be comfortable but sure looks nice.

BO...as in body odor..lol...just joking. Learn a new word today.

Good morning, I love that bench. It is very pretty! Body odor is the first thing I think of when I see the letters BO, lol.

Happy Tuesday, enjoy your new week!

Tom said...

leaves abound

Pretty seat, must have missed seeing it at Elgin Park when we were there for the christmas lights, but it was dark so I have an excuse!

Lowell said...

That's quite a bench and I can hear it, way down here in Florida, saying "Leaf me alone!"

BO is a word? I don't think so, BO. :)

Nancy Chan said...

A pretty bench. Learning a new word today - BO! Lol!

Kate said...

I have a bo from childhood that I see occasionally. What a treat it is when I see her or other bos from that era.

VP said...

May be it is uncomfortable, but it is spectacular!

Kathy said...

Gorgeous intricate bench! It was made to be looked and admired, not to be sat in!

Mary Hone said...

I love that bench! And that is a new word for me too.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

Definitely just for looks

William Kendall said...

It is a pretty bench. I have no idea about the rules for scrabble, but if it allows for names, Bo is a name.

Norma Ruttan said...

gorgeous bench! I'd have to sit down to see whether it's comfy or not.

Cloudia said...

Sweet!

Sandra said...

that bench is a work of art. i would like to own it. or one like it. Bo is all new to me

Jeevan said...

Very pretty and creative bench! Cool capture

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I do love that bench!! I've never seen one like it before! It's beautiful and so different! As for Bo??? I don't know -- it's new to me, too!! I hope your week is off to a great start, EG, ENJOY!!

Susan Anderson said...

It would certainly deter anyone thinking of sleeping on it.

1. an exclamation uttered to startle or surprise someone, esp a child in a game :-)

Photo Cache said...

I'm guessing this was made to look at not to sit at.

My ABC WEDNESDAY

Ruth Hiebert said...

That bench certainly does not look comfy,but I do like it as a decorative accent.

Linda W. said...

It might not be comfortable, but it's a cool looking bench.

Leslie: said...

I would try out that bench - besides being beautiful, there are lots of softly rounded edges so it just might be bearable after all.

BO seems like a stretch to me, EG!

..."E"... Beth Edwards said...

i wonder if that chair is comfortable? BO, i hope i don't have any. i think i am good? i guess i could or should ask some one else?? ha. ha! ( :

happywonderer.com said...

Now that is a very unique bench!

Rose said...

Be still my heart! I wonder if Roger could/would make me a bench such as that. I love it. I should have got him to teach me to weld, but it just did not interest me.

Debbie said...

the bench is pretty so it does not have to be comfortable. it looks like it could slide off those concrete bases. i would not try it out...just photograph it!!!!

Hildred said...

I would be looking for a cushion...

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Bo is one of those words only used in scrabble, along with Jo, or xi, and xu.

That bench you found is fabulous!!

Indrani said...

Wow! That is a beautiful bench.

Kay said...

The bench is very pretty. Compared to some slab benches I've seen I wonder if you can't find a semi-comfortable spot on it but it might be a challenge. The flowers don't look at all hospitable. "BO?" My dictionary says it's used as a friendly form of address to a man or boy, "Hey, bo!"

Roger Owen Green said...

Bo? Bro, yeah, and beau.
Anyway, pretty blue.

orvokki said...

The bench is really pretty, but certainly uncomfortable to sit on.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Beautiful piece of art this bench is EG and I learnt a new word today, merci beaucoup!

Lea said...

That is a beautiful bench, a work of art!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I love it!!!!

I play lots of Scrabble on my iPad. Good to know. The bench is beautiful, but I'm with you, it doesn't look all that comfortable. - Margy
