Mystery Person

OK, here we go with this week's mystery person contest. Who is the woman pictured above?


DOMESTIC UPDATE: Well I have some major news for you all. I have a new peacock. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce to you Mr. Handsome Jack, pictured below. For now, Handsome Jack is staying in the backyard of the Peacock Palace, while Lovie and the Chickies are living inside the Peacock Palace. I did not want to throw them all together at once. I wanted to get Handsome Jack settled into his new surroundings first, lessening the chance of some sort of barnyard catastrophe.

I should add that Handsome Jack actually is the Papa of the Chickies. When the lady gave us Lovie and the babies, she was just thinning out her peacocks. She called last week, and said she had fallen and broken her hip, and needed to get rid of all the peacocks. She said we could come and get Lovies' old flame, and father of the Chickies. So, the whole family is back together again. Now, if you want a mini-trivia contest . . . what fictional character did I name the new Peacock after. To make sure you know the answer, you have to answer this question. What was Handsome Jack looking for in the swamp?



Lovie and the Chickies are living inside. The Chickies are growing up fast.

  1. Don't recognize the girl right off, but Handsome Jack was looking for Marie Laveau.

  2. Nate,
    Yes indeed, Handsome Jack was looking around for Marie Laveau . . . did you know that one, or find it through google?

    Game continues on the mystery person though.

  3. I knew the song, but I googled it figure out how to spell Laveau. I would have guessed it would have been French, something more like Lavaux.

  5. Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women? A bit of a guess; this lady seems to fit the period. kjg

  7. Nope, it is not Louisa May Alcott.

    As far as the tail. . . it is molting season, and the peacocks lose their long feathers. Fear not, they will soon return.

  13. I didn't realize that it took so long to get baby chicks.
    Well good luck on having everybody pick their chicks up.

  15. Once again, I am defeated by the Evil Nate Mass. He knew the obscure Bobby Bare song, Marie Laveau, and he knew this was the actress Lotta Crabtree.

    Next week, I will win.

  16. Kudos to you PJM. I don't know how much more obscure you need to get. You do a decent job of bedeviling me with youthful photos of semi-famous people. I don't recall ever seeing a photo of her this young. Thanks for the fun! By the way, how is the school year going?

  17. Nate,
    Great school year this year. I am teaching Wind Turbine Technology, DC/AC Circuit Analysis, Algebra II, Computers, Business, and Multimedia. Pretty full load. I have a wonderful group of students. Really amazing, they come in after school every day and study. On friday, I finally had to tell them to go home at 6:00 pm because I was tired, and needed to get home. Really looking forward to working with these students this year.

  18. Wow. That's a full course load. I remember my first few years teaching, they had me teaching so many courses, it really felt like I never had any time. I'd go home prepare for all the varied classes, go to bed, and start over the next day. Any word from Dustin?

  19. Dustin started college this week. I kept in touch with him this summer, but have not heard from him this week. His cousin is in one of my classes, and she said he got moved in OK, and was eager for classes to start.

  20. That's neat. Glad to hear things are going well for him.

  21. I'm sure you don't really mean to imply you will put the chicks and peacocks together...
    If you put chicks with the peacocks, it's quite possible the peacocks will kill or injure them.
    How does you wife and neighbors feel about the peacock calls? Like bagpipes, it seems people either love them or hate them. (I love both.)

  22. I was inspired to learn more about Lotta Crabtree and found Lotta's Fountain.
