  6. Ray,
    Wecome to the game.

    Your entry has been determined to be in want. It is wrong, incorrect, in error, and unworthy.

  7. I'd like to stay and play; but I have to finish getting 13 picnic-style games ready for a children's church activity by 8am. Have fun y'all!

  10. And the only possible answer (because it is the correct one) iiiiiis:

    CHARLES G. DAWES, father of the Dawes Plan that saved the world, Vice President of the United States, 1925-1929 under do-nothing Calvin Coolidge.

  12. Sorry, I can't play anymore. I have to leave for a family get together. You are a good teacher PJM. I never heard of Pie Town NM before this week and I learned even more about it searching for the identity of this man. I wonder how my pies would rate against theirs? Pies (and bread) are my specialty.

  13. Hello. No guess here. But wanted to finally 'come out of the closet' as a fan of your page. I check it every day. And even though I rarely have an idea who your Saturday mystery person is (I've been an anonymous wrong guesser in the past), I still enjoy finding out once it's all said and done!
    Thanks for the daily entertainment!

  14. DanciaER,
    Welcome to the Blog! Nice to see your post.

    Contest is a little slow this morning. I think I have finally stumped everyone!

  15. Is It Norman Rockwell?
    I check in everyday. Brings back memories of my childhood.

    ReplyDelete
  16. EMS,

    Nope, Not Norman Rockwell.

    Ha! I have stumped you all!

    PJM

  17. Could it be Russell Lee?

    ReplyDelete
  18. EMS,
    If you notice, earlier in the comments, Marie already guessed Russell Lee.

    I grow weary of duplicated incorrect responses.

  19. I guess he is R.R. Doubleday, the first pro rodeo photographer.

  20. Kariav,

  21. Ray,

    You are still playing? I thought perhaps you were watching the D-day ceremonies . . . you know, the ones the Queen was not invited to.

    Your entry is incorrect.
    PJM

  22. Sir Frederick E Morgan, original planner of D-Day.

  23. William,

    You are still in the game? I thought you had given up.

    Well, your entry is not correct.

    I think I might finally win this week. Yes, I think this will be my week!

  24. I'm always in the shop on the weekends and have a machine out there. I always keep looking for your angle right up until someone stumps you.

    ReplyDelete
  25. William,
    So you have a shop? Sure rub it in. I want a shop, but dont have one.
    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  26. You should stand up to your wife. ;)
    I build 18th century style furniture and musical instruments so my shop has a lot of stuff in it. I don't have a tractor though but I borrow my friends from time to time.

  27. enjoying the fun from the spectator gallery here... who ever he is, he has a very interesting face, interesting expression too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Alright. If it's not Dawes then it must be the guy they offered the Veepship to before they gave it to Dawes: Holm O. Bursum, former sheriff of Socorro County, NM and one of their first US Senators.

    ReplyDelete
  29. William,
    I used to have a nice Shopsmith setup in my garage. I had all the attachments. I made an old style swiss workbench, and lots of nice stuff. I liked all the things you could do with the shopsmith, but always dreamed of a standalone shop. I sold the shopsmith, but hope some day to build a nice shop behind the house.

  30. Jim Smith,

    Ha . . . I have stumped you. Your answer is WRONG.

    I grow weary of this contest. No one is worthy of it. Nope, you are all not capable of fielding a winning entry.

  31. Well I hope you do build a shop and it has a tractor parked in it to boot. All of my machines are stand alone set up in stations with dust collection throughout. It's peaceful out here except on saturday mornings. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. William,
    Ah, dust collection. It is what makes a shop enjoyable.

    The tractor initiative has had major setback. I will fill in on the details tomorrow.
    PJM

  33. Yes, I'm still searching.

    Charles is going instead of the
    Queen. Saw a very good progam on
    Omaha Beach, the American landing
    site. I'm amazed anyone walked
    away from that. Brave men.
    The German fortifications were
    solid structures, but first there
    was a cliff to climb after they
    had crossed the beach.

    Heavy Stuff.

  34. How about Arthur Seligman, Governor of New Mexico in 1932 Depression era?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Al,
    Your entry joins the others this morning in being incorrect.

    This will be my week to win!
    PJM

  36. John Joseph Dempsey? Governor etc. for New Mexico during the time the previos week's photos were taken?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mathan,
    Nope, all wrong.

  38. Just a lurker here - weems to be kinda slow this morning, huh?
    I have no idea of which direction to head looking for an answer - hints??

  39. Hmmmmm. The pictures I can find of Roy Stryker, head of the FSA who sanctioned these photos, all have his hand over most of his face, but, I'm going to guess him and go do my chores.

    BTW, there is a brand of very durable sheds that makes wonderful outbuildings that can house a lot of tools and stuff. That's where I put my lathe and drill and saws and stuff. Plus they have a metal foundation that the termites don't particularly care for.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Mad,
    The people ask for a hint, but none will be given them.

    ha ha ha . . . you all are stumped!
    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  41. Mathan,

    so you have a shop too? You all are cruel, rubbing it in like that. I am the only one with neither a tractor nor a shop.

    The person is not Roy Striker.

  42. Albert Erskine (1871 - 1933)
    Industrialist. As president of the Studebaker Corporation from 1915 to 1933, he literally guided the Studebaker company from the "horse and buggy" days into the position of a major player in modern auto production. The 1927 Studebaker Erskine Roadster Model 50J with rumble seat was named for him. On...

    Clyde Norman founder of Pie town?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Mad,
    Nope, still not correct.

    You all realize if no one gets it by 5:44 AM Central Daylight time, I WIN!

    Yes, this will be the week I win!

  45. Ross,
    I have come to expect better from you.

    This is wrong. You will not win this week. None of you will win!

  46. It must be John Chisum, land baron and cattle man from the 1800s. My first try at this game. Great blog.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Anon,
    John Chisum . . . what a great idea. Unfortunately, it is not the person this week. An idea I might keep tucked away though :-)

  48. Sir Henry M. Stanley?

  49. Lesa,
    Nope, not Sir Henry Stanley.

  50. Hi PJM,

    This is George Eastman, inventor of the snapshot photography, and founder of the Kodak company.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Rob,
    You have foiled me once again!

    Yes, it is George Eastman, famous for the "Brownie" camera, one of the first practical cameras the common man could afford. It actually took really good pictures, much better than the later "instamatics".

    Good job, Rob.

    I have been defeated once again.
    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  52. Good for you, Rob. How did you ever get this one?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Well thank heavens!
    This was driving me nuts.
    I knew the face but couldn't get the name!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh! BTW Ray of the UK, our local Englishwoman says that it was the "surrender-monkeys" who failed to invite the Queen, but Obama said, no Royals, no Yanks, and they capitulated, but, that it was the Royals who decided to send Charles instead of Elizabeth. She didn't have a whole lot of nice things to say about the French, so I'll leave things go at that.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Of course it's Eastman. Duh. Where was my head? I got home just as Rob submitted his guess. Kudos!!

    My aunt had a Brownie Camera she used late into my high school years. It was cool to watch her manhandle the thing with her manicured nails! I inherited all of her photograph books. Wonder what happended to the Brownie?

    Well, now I can relax and watch the Ole Miss/UVA game.

  56. Congrtaulations, Rob. We must never let PJM win one or we will never hear the end of it (LOL).

    PJM, you should have done as I did and have the shop built as a part of the house. Mine is an extention of the garages that blend in with the architecture of the house. Footage of the shops are not included in the computation for taxes if you are willing to put about two days effort in with the tax assessor's staff.

    Had you been able to do this when you built, you could have included a space for the tractor you want and created another reason to get one.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just back.

    As soon as I saw Rob's photo
    I knew it was over.
    Thanks, Rob From Amersfoort.

    I can now take it easy for the
    rest of the evening.

    I did hear Obama had something
    to do with who'd be there.

    As to what the Royals are doing,
    I take very little interest. But
    the Monarchy is an intrinsic part
    of the system, and I don't see
    it changing.
