The bones puzzle reminds me of an old story of the fellow who was just given initials instead of a first and middle name. His real name was R. B. Smith. When he entered the army he tried to explain at the induction center that his name was R [only] B [only] Smith. So he was registered as Ronly Bonly Smith.

Bonnie, you're too kind - but thanks!

The bones in the foot are metatarsals, similar :))

Never mind Julie, onwards and upwards and a participation point awarded :))

Mariposamia

Wasn't sure if it was hand or foot so I didn't bet. No point (sigh!).

Thought of carpal tunnel syndrome too. Got this one, Bonnie. Thanks.

Surreal_Heidi

Yep..... easy peasy.

Max_Tooney

That's funny Max because I didn't see you sneak in or out.

Max_Tooney

Haha, nanab...I somehow didn't see your post, lol.

Max_Tooney

Knew this one because I'm very familiar with their 'tunnels'...

manicpuzzler

Good one BB :))

nanab

yea - I thought of carpal tunnel syndrome.

And the answer is................The hand

In human anatomy, the metacarpal bones or metacarpus, form the intermediate part of the skeletal hand located between the phalanges of the fingers and the carpal bones of the wrist which forms the connection to the forearm. The metacarpal bones are equivalent to the metatarsal bones in the foot.
The metacarpals form a transverse arch to which the rigid row of distal carpal bones are fixed. The peripheral metacarpals (those of the thumb and little finger) form the sides of the cup of the palmar gutter and as they are brought together they deepen this concavity. The index metacarpal is the most firmly fixed, while the thumb metacarpal articulates with the trapezium and acts independently from the others. The middle metacarpals are tightly united to the carpus by intrinsic interlocking bone elements at their bases. The ring metacarpal is somewhat more mobile while the fifth metacarpal is semi-independent.
Each metacarpal bone consists of a body or shaft, and two extremities: the head at the distal or digital end (near the fingers), and the base at the proximal or carpal end (close to the wrist).

LOL Max, great smile :))

Max_Tooney

Got it. Smirk.

manicpuzzler

Well done in advance every one :))

Thank you jpowell :))

LOL PW :))

Surreal_Heidi

I think I know this one. Maybe 75% sure.

That makes one I know for sure today, one I haven't a clue over and two I have educated guesses on. We'll see how good those guesses are.

Just looked this one up. I was correct!!!

nanab

Thought I knew this one but not so sure now, I'll have to DAJ.

ParsonWayne

Even if I don't know the answer to the question, I will not let that defeet me. I will keep searching until I find out here it is.

I named my dog 6 miles so I can tell people that I walk 6 miles every single day.

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane and going the wrong way.

I hope when I inevitably choke to death on gummy bears people just say I was killed by bears and leave it at that.

ringleader

I think I know that one. Thanks Bonnie.

You’re pretty sharp there manicpuzzler.
