Go Time

Today is contest day, and hope you all have your best game on. This morning, you have to name both people in the picture. You only win if you get them both right, and I wont tell you that you have one right . . . only one right is the same as a wrong entry. Lets Go!

  1. Morning PJM;


    William Borah and Alice Roosevelt Longworth?

    (I am expecting a resounding "No"...)

  2. Ross,
    Your entry is not going to be a winner.

    Wonder if anyone else is out there this morning?

  3. Not sure, but I'll check in later to see who the winner was...


    Good Luck to all...

  4. Been working on it, but I have no idea. Like Ross, I'll look in later to see who it is. They are in really nice outfits which might be a clue. Actors?

    Good luck all.

  8. Downtown Indy,

    Perhaps I should begin now planning my victory breakfast for tomorrow.

    Hmmm . . . crepes from farm fresh eggs, a little home made apricot preserves, and powdered sugar.

  9. Well, I'm saying it is Marlon Brando rehearsing a scene from Godfather II with Francesca de Sapio playing the young Mrs. Corleone. Note the young man from a rival gang preparing to aim his gun in the background.

    Amusing, but not correct.

    Is it possibly your Dad's parents??

    Nope, I am not related to them.

  14. I'm going to say it is William Jennings Bryan and his wife Mary Baird Bryan. Today is WJ Bryan's birthday, so I am fairly certain I got half of this one right!

  15. Shutterbug,
    Sorry, but not correct.

    I am preparing for my breakfast celebration as we speak. I am confident that I have won this week!

  17. Shutterbug,
    My plans for a victory breakfast are still underway.

    Your last entry was not correct.

  18. What stymies me is she is obviously a fine young lady and he looks to be a sleazebag con artist type of guy. They don't look like they belong in the same picture. And he's on the top step looking down at her?

  19. I have to laugh - there is a cigarette button the ground!
    Not too gentile, huh?

  20. I feel confident in my victory. I am reading up on how to make crepes for breakfast. It will be a magnificent victory breakfast.

  26. Is related to Jeannette Rankin. Useless trivia but I think it's cool.

  27. I have no idea, but just wanted to let you know that crêpe batters are best when left to sit overnight in the fridge. And don't forget, you can make savory crêpes, with eggs, ham, cheese...man, now I'm hungry.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Flartus,
    Thanks for the tip . . . in anticipation of victory, I will mix the batter up tonight. I really want to make the sweet crepes.

    I am surprised no one has gotten the contest today.

  34. Hmmmm. Where is the Evil Nate Maas today?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Marie,
    I am sure the Evil Nate Maas is out there playing, but could not figure it out, so is pretending that he is not out there playing.

    Ahhhhh sweet victory is mine!

  37. PJM;

    You should know that old saying...

    Don't count your chickens...

    (not that I've been any help...)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ross,
    The Evil Nate Maas can not save you this week . . . no one can save you, victory is mine. Yes, I will be eating crepes for breakfast.

    Your entry is wrong by the way.

  39. what time is the contest over??

    ReplyDelete
  40. The game is over 5:44 AM in the morning, Texas Time. . . 24 hours after it began, and that my friend is when the crepes will be served.

  41. Sam Stewart and Jeannette Rankin

    My last uneducated guess. We just returned from camping in Palo Duro. It snowed last night and we had to break camp in 6 inches of snow. Not to mention the drifts. Enjoy your breakfast.

  42. Sheila,
    Sorry for my delay in responding. I was in the kitchen mixing up the crepe batter for my victory breakfast in the morning.

    I must inform you that your entry will not interfere with my victory breakfast, as it was incorrect.

  43. You're right PJM, I did look this morning, but I don't think I know these two. I was checking in to see who won, but now it appears as though I'll have to check before church tomorrow. Unless perhaps freshiesurfer gets up early enough and knows this one it looks like it's lost.

    ReplyDelete
  44. These two look like they could be health care professionals. Clara Barton? I have drawn a complete blank on these Mystery People.

    I'm quite sure PJM will be sitting down to enjoy his (well deserved) Victory Crepes very soon this morning!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks for the thought Nate.
    I did actually just get back in time and remembered to play tonight but I had no luck.
    I am heading off again now but hopefully someone will foil PJM.
    It would be a waste of the batter but PJM (including injured pride) could score some brownie points with Mrs PJM and daughter by treating them.
    Porridge and water though for PJM.
    Goodnight folks.

  46. CONTEST IS CLOSED.

    PJM is the winner. The man is:

    James K. Vardaman, Governor of Mississippi and the woman is the widow of Confederate General James Longstreet.

  47. Congratulations, PJM. This has been a Slaughter. Sort of like the self-executing contest, where we learn the content of the thing after it's all over ;-)

    Look out, America!

    (Please forgive me for raining on the parade. I really don't mean to spoil your victory. But I think you've done so much to help your readers see how messed up America has become. I thought you would not mind me making a point, which I thought you can appreciate.)

  48. What a curve ball! Good going PJM!

    Inappropriate political comments aside, I was really into this contest. I just KNEW it had to be WJ Bryan since yesterday was his birthday :-)

    Just what year was this photo made? The photo looks like it was from the 1920's, so I was surprised to see it was of Longstreet's widow. I did a little googling and found out she was his second wife whom he married when he was 76 yrs old and she was 34. She died in 1962.

    Hope you enjoyed your breakfast!

  49. Shutterbug,
    I very much enjoyed my breakfast. I was going to post a picture, but my camera battery was dead, and Mrs. PJM could not find the memory card for her camera.

    The picture was taken in 1912.

    I find it interesting the cordial looking meeting between these two. She was very much of a progressive and civil rights proponent, and he was very much of an old south style politician.

    ReplyDelete
  50. PJM;

    Congratulations!

    I thought the outfits looked turn of the century, and was amazed when I heard she was Longstreet's widow.


    Shutterbug's and your explaination make sense. What an incredible life and times that lady must have experienced...

    ReplyDelete
  51. Congratulations PJM. I had a good
    go at it, but could find no trace
    of the man. The woman reminded me
    of Margaret Thatcher for some
    reason, and I think that jinxed my
    search.
    Glad you enjoyed your breakfast.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great work PJM.
    Shame we could not see your victory breakfast due to technical difficulties. Maybe next time you could provide a sketch! :-)

  53. The man actually looks like the actor, Harvey Kitell!
