Game Day

I hope you all are ready for a great game today. I hope you have been getting your resources ready, and are prepared for a hard contest. Did I mention yesterday was the last day of school, so I am off for the summer? Yep, I will be lounging around, and doing all the things I have not had time to over the last 9 months. So, I am hoping we have a great game today. Ladies and Gentlemen, START YOUR ENGINES!

  2. Tina,
    Welcome to the game. I dont think you will win . . . I dont think any of you will win. This will be the day that I foil you all.

  4. We have school today. It's our last day but the school employees must go today. What is a school nurse going to do on a Saturday without children??? I'm a little bitter. *s*

    But I had to jump on here and peek at the contest. They can't ruin my Saturday completely.

  5. Tina,
    Nope, this is not correct.

    Markh,
    Nope, this is not correct.

    Ha! Your feeble attempts have come up short.

  6. Sheila,
    You are a school nurse? Well, that is certainly a most honorable calling.

    As for the game, I feel you have no chance, but I do tip my hat to your career choice.

  8. Is is Julia Clark who was killed in a Biplane accident? By the way, how's it looking for the new tractor?

  9. markh,
    Your entry joins all the other ones this morning in being in error, wrong, and not a winner.

    As far as the tractor goes, I am still not getting a good feeling about it. There appears to still be reservations from MRS. PJM if I got a tractor, I would use it one time, and then it would be left parked. This is a hard one to overcome.

  11. Tina, Tina, Tina, You did not really think I would do something so obvious of one of the Wrights did you? Nope your latest entry/guess is not correct.

    I guess if there was an early bird prize you would win, but unfortunatley, such a prize does not exist.

  14. William,
    Ha, just because you won like 27 contests in the past, does not mean you are going to win today. Nope, you will not make a mockery of this contest today.

    Your entry is WRONG. Ha! The great WILLIAM has entered the game and come up short. You have ALL come up short.

  15. So I will guess that my answer was wrong?

    Last one and then I need to go get ready.

  17. My final guess before heading out to plant the cornfields. Is it a young Anne Morrow Lindbergh? Have a great day all!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh my, I step to the kitchen to prepare a perfect cafe Latte, and return to a plethora of pitiful entries.

    Not Gladys Roy,
    Not Ruth Law,
    Not Ann Lindbergh,
    Not Shirley Farman,

    Did I miss anyone?

    March - cruel, you have to keep pointing out that you not only have a tractor, but are a real farmer planting corn, not just a wanna be gentleman farmer like me. Wonder what I really need to be a gentleman farmer . . . would a tiller count?

  19. Tina,
    If there was a contest for who makes the most guesses, I think you might win. Unfortunately, there is no such contest. Your entry, Jacqueline Cochran, sadly joins your other entries in the "Not Correct" file.

  20. oops, did i say that out loud?

  21. Tina,
    I have a pitch fork, but just dont feel like a gentleman farmer. I cant do like markh and say, "I have to go plow the field", or "I need to go plant the back 40".

    Another incorrect response. Perhaps sustinance in the form of breakfast would help your efforts.

  24. I have to put all of my reasonable guesses in before Nate, or Ray, or the other really good players come to the game...

  25. Lena Pearl Neff Curtis. Wife of Glenn Curtis. The maker of the plane this young girl is sitting in.

  26. William,
    Wow, you are good. Yep, that is the correct answer.

    You are turning into a force to be reconed with.

    Good Job!

  27. Yes, when you consider that I used the identification of the aircraft , the fact that dressed as she was she did not fly , the period, and the fact that Mrs Curtis was very vocal and involded in her husbands pr. I never actually found a photo of her. Out of the pool you go :)

  28. ...and William....

    good job! I don't know nothin' 'bout aeroplanes...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Only 18 days until the Mystery Gift is revealed!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Tina, neither do I but each aircraft of this period was hand made and uniqe. Most had simple sticks for control. The wheel is what gave it away. Once I found that , the bracing that we're viewing the young girl through in the picture became a perfect match. I get lucky from time to time.

  31. William, you out-sleuthed me! I wasn't even looking at the style of the plane. ...duh. PJM, is gooood! But you thwarted him...once again! Bahahahahahahaaha

    ...off to make some oatmeal

  32. Good job William!!!

    I knew she wasn't flying that plane so it narrowed my answers(guesses) down.

    PJM, the gate is not going to justify the tractor. Your wife must feel the need for you to be a gentlemen farmer. I don't think she's feeling it just yet. Maybe make a few more brush piles.

    Now I am off to work.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sheila,
    Good Night! I had 16 HUGE brush piles . . . each 30 feet across and 16 feet high, and I got them all burned, without, I must say, causing any grass fires. There are no more brush piles, because I burned them all already. I think you are right. Mrs. PJM is just not seeing the need.

  34. Good work William. I wonder what
    year the photo was taken.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ray,

    The photo was taken in 1910.

    Hey, did you see the queen was not invited to the Normandy Memorial service? Everyone who is anyone on the world stage will be there.

  36. Have I missed a comment? Where is the excitement, drama & REACTION of Mrs PJM discovering the gate for the first time? Finish this story for us. And, congrats, William.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Judi,
    Mrs. PJM was pleased with the gates and stars. Noticably lacking in the response, however, was the comment, "Now you run down to the feed store and buy that tractor you have been eyeing." So, gate and stars generated a good response, not the desired response.

  38. Where did you get the Texas Stars?

  39. Anon,
    I bought them from the Amish.

  40. PJM, you are on the wrong track with that tractor fantasy. MRS PJM is on to you.

    Here's what you need:

  41. If you cannot have a tractor, how about a miniature railway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVfyYbR1xWM

    Thanks for 1910.

    I did notice that the Queen
    hadn't been invited to the
    Memorial Service.
    Mr Sarkozy said she could come
    if she liked, but no official
    invite was offered.
    It's an Outrage!

    i couldn't help noticing (in the gate opener post) that your yard is completely barren of any type of lawn ornaments. maybe you could market the tractor as a very elite type of lawn ornamentation... something that only a "five star" sort of wife would have in her yard. you see, you're really getting the tractor for *her,* so that the yard looks nice for *her,* so that she can boast to her friends, "whoa, that husband o'mine! there's nothing he won't buy to make my home beautiful for me!"


    probably won't work, but hey, desperate times call for desperate measures.

  44. Yea William - good job!

    I wasn't able to play today. I went to Michigan to see my grandchildren. Eight year old grandson Thomas was baptized today on his birthday, five year old granddaughter Emma was in a ballet recital, Twelve year old grandson Jacob had a baseball game which he won. Two year old grandson Luca just kept hugging me - it was a great day!
