Folds and Bends

When used as nouns, bend means a curve, whereas fold means an act of folding. When used as verbs, bend means to cause (something) to change its shape into a curve, by physical force, chemical action, or any other means, whereas fold means to bend (any thin material, such as paper) over so that it comes in contact with itself.

Thank you DiffSense for that


Now that we know . . . . .

In Dizzy Dean english (if you remember who he was)

“Somebody throwed out their rug”

Nice folds and a great color  🙂

Lots of bends!

All as intended by the manufacturer

Its when the bends get bent that serious issues arise

    You bring another idea for me for folds. In my minds eye I see ‘neat’ folds. That is not necessarily what a fold is though. Thanks for that Rich.

      Never really thought about it — I guess — probably why I elicited some disdain when I wadded up my shirt and stuck in the plastic bag a nurse had given me. 😉
