NPR Puzzle 2/19/11 - Head in Hand, Knee on Neck, Arm over Ear

Here's this week's puzzle:
Spell a part of the human body. Change one of the letters to an E, and rearrange the result to name another part of the human body. What body parts are these? Clue: Both parts of the body are things you can see.
I got ARM & EAR right away.  Ross got HAND & HEAD and NECK & KNEE shortly thereafter.  No nudie beaches needed yet!

Honestly, I have no idea what the correct answer is, but I plucked photos based on my answers:  the first three are of ARMenia and the other three are of things E(a)Rie: the Erie Canal in the first two, and the last one is of Lake Erie.


And, just because I can, here are some other relevant body part places:


Hand County Courthouse, Miller, South Dakota
Headingley Campus - Leeds

Wounded Knee, as seen from the cemetary

Prouts Neck, Maine - Winslow Homer's studio

Our tie-break rule: 
In the event that a single round number is announced, AND two separate people picked the ranges leading up to and leading up from that round number, the prize will be awarded to whichever entrant had not already won a prize, or in the event that both entrants had won a prize already or neither had, then to the earlier of the two entries on the famous judicial principle of "First Come First Serve," (or in technical legal jargon, "You Snooze, You Lose")
