  3. I am sorry for my delay. I was out in Chickie Town. Miss Nelly is on her laying box, and I am waiting on my breakfast. She appears to do better if I dont stand there and watch.

    No, not Middleton Cox

    No not Alexander Proctor.

  4. Well, y'know the old saying: a watched hen never lays.

    Happy breakfast!

  6. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got til it's there?

  7. Would it be considered inappropriate barnyard ettiquite to lift her up and see if the egg has in fact already been laid?

  8. If you start growing wheat and raising hogs and cows, you can become fully breakfast self-sufficient.

    And, you'll need a tractor.

  9. Yes, I had a pig when I was growing up as a school project. Probem was that with one pig, I found the pig to be very smart. Smarter than a dog in fact. So, I would like to have a pig for the reason you mention, but am concerned pig would become a pet, and would not contribute to said self-sufficiency status in breakfast.

  10. He looks somewhat like
    Calvin Coolidge, who has
    connections to Mt Rushmore.
    So I say, Mr Coolidge.

  11. My guess is Charles Howard, the owner of racehorse SeaBiscuit.

    I would like to see biscuits and gravy as my breakfast today.

    Your entry is not correct.

  13. Indy,
    It is not Charles Howard.

    I do however, endorse your proposed breakfast. I just had mine. Two eggs. I gave up on Miss Nelly, and went ahead and ate the two eggs I had.

  15. Karen,
    It is not Alf Landon.

    Miss Nelly just laid her egg. She was quite proud. I have that one tomorrow for breakfast.

  16. My last guess - is it Harry Emerson Fosdick? Now I'm off to do farm chores. Nate will probably make the correct guess and have his victory lap before I get to check back in. Have a great day everyone!

  17. Is the mystery person Louis Rove?

    No Miss Nelly fresh egg for Mrs. PJM's breakfast?

  18. Karen,
    It is not Emerson Fosdick.

    Farm chores . . . please tell us more.

  19. Joe,
    It is not Louis Rove.

    Mrs. PJM is under the weather the last few days from the nasty bug going around. She had a nice cup of applesauce, and I made her a Ginger Root tea, which helps settle the stomach.

    While we all sympathize with her, I must say I did enjoy the extra eggs.

  20. Gathering eggs reminds me of when I was around 10 or 11 years old. We lived on a farm. I really liked fried eggs. My mother would fix us one egg for breakfast. I wanted more, so one morning she said she would fix me all the eggs I could find. I went out to the hen house and found about 6 eggs. She fried them for me and made me eat every last bite. I never asked for more eggs again.
    Yes, you can reach under the hen to see if she has laid an egg.

  21. Jim,
    Nope, not Hiram.

    Elsie,
    Thanks for the egg gathering tip. I will go check right now.

  26. Hello. I have been looking at your phots for a couple weeks now..amazing history in them. Now, if I could just figure out who the mystery person is?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Anon,
    Well, welcome to the contest. Just make a guess . . . that appears to be what everyone else is doing this morning.

  28. What?!? People, people... you are allowed to guess before I have a chance to look.

    I will have to break the winning embargo by guessing Vice President James Sherman.

    Nate Wins!

    I'm usually too late in looking in on Saturday, but after seeing the picture say to myself, "Nate Schmate - that was a cinch!" But I didn't recognize Sherman at all. I'm in awe.

  30. The Evil Nate Maas has once again foiled my dreams of victory. Yes, it is VP Sherman.

    Is there any way to defeat the Evil NM?

  31. As always, well done Nate.

    Didn't think to put in Vice
    President when searching. Started
    with 'senators'.

  32. PJM, I think you are already a gentleman, because you seem to be a great fellow, helping your students and family to a better life.
    I miss Smart Girl and Heather when they are off. Also like Geezers' comments. And all the others.
    You really need a tractor.I need a tractor also, because I'm retired and have a couple of Texas acres here in the hill country.
    Congratulations on a good show. I enjoy it every day.
    Squeaky, in Texas

  33. I'd have never guessed Sherman. But now that I know I can tell you this about him: he was the last Veep to die in office.
