  2. Charlie B.,
    Nope, not going to cut it. This is not US Grant.

    The game continues!

  8. Joe,
    No, that is not going to be a winner.

    Hmmm . . . maybe I should start planning my victory celebration now.

  13. Pope George,
    It is not Czar Nicholas Romanov.

    Perhaps I should call MRS. PJM and discuss potential victory breakfast for in the morning.

  15. Good morning. Based on that profile, I'll go with Alexander Graham Bell.

  16. Darn.

    The evil Nate Maas has once again foiled my dreams of victory.

    Yes, it is the beloved inventor of the telephone, Alexandar Graham Bell.

    I had hoped the picture would present him enough out of the normal context to catch you all off guard.

    Next week will be different, Oh yes, it will be different.

  17. My sweetie thought the woman looked like Clara Barton, so I looked for her family. Morris Whitman doesn't appear to have been bearded, but Walt Whitman certainly did. That's my guess

  18. I noticed that he has a hole in the sole of his shoe.

  19. Everyone looks bored -- maybe they forgot to bring their iPhones?

  20. Saved the day again, Nate. I thought
    you might be away somewhere.

  21. Thanks Ray. Sometimes I'm away camping with the Boy Scouts (as I will be next weekend), but these last couple weeks have just been hard, so I needed the extra sleep.

    PJM, consolation breakfasts are yummy too.

  22. What are they doing anyway? I thought at first maybe the girl was poking at a fire, but I dont thing Alexander would have his hand that close. Is that an old oild filter just below what the girl is holding? I'm thinking maybe he invented the oil filter before he realized that the engine hadn't come along yet, at least not with pressurized oil systems. Now with the dissapointment of his useless invention they are trying to burn it.

  23. I can't even tell there is someone smoking a cigar in the picture! Congrats to all who could make guesses and to Nate, and of course PJM for such a fun contest - again!
