We kick off the new year with a Mystery Person Contest. Today's contest should be a good one. Let the Games Begin!

  2. Mad,
    You were successful in getting the first entry, but not successful in winning the contest.

  3. Lisa,
    Pancho Villa? Please. Would I do something so obvious?

    The game continues.

  5. Danny,
    Indeed a great Marty Robbins song, Big Iron, but unfortunately not the person shown in the picture.

    Hmmm . . . perhaps I will achieve victory on this one.

  6. My one guess will be William Hart.

    He dresses like q movie star.

    No real cowboy would have his boots on the outside of his pants. Too much of a chance of something falling into the boot when youy ride through brush.

  7. Roger,
    I had such high hopes for you. Your first day in retirement, I was fearing a big entry from you.

    But alas, your entry is no better than the other ones.

    I remain in the race, and the game continues.

  8. MH,
    Is that all you have? Kit Carson? Did you not think I would be a little more challenging than Ket Carson?

    Your entry is not correct.

    (Please note: part of the game is that I ridicule the participants)

  9. Beautiful saddle that gorgeous white horse has...

    Hmm.. new to the game (over from Far Side of Fifty's place).

    Robert Preston?

  10. I really had my doubts on that being who it was.
    I'm not to big on old time movie stars. Only knew a few of them and I was sure it wasn't Gabby Hayes or Tom Mix.

    Well, now we have to rely on the one and only Evil Nate Maas

  11. Intense Guy,
    While I find your comments on the saddle insightful, unfortunately, this is not "Comment on the Saddle" contest. It is mystery person contest.

    This is not Robert Preston.

    Ha! Only I know the identity of the Mystery Person.

  12. Roger,
    The Evil Nate Maas is probably cowering in the corner in the fetal position desperately wondering who the mystery person is.

    Nate Maas, Ha! Who is Nate Maas.

    Today is the day I defeat him. Today is the day I defeat you all!

    No it is not Lanky Larson.

  16. I can see you now sitting at your computer, rubbing your hands together and laughing your maniacal laugh knowing that you have all of us stumped.

    Well, as long as you have a nice domestic update for us tomorrow, I will be happy to concede today OPOD to you.
    You may have to put Handsome Jack into a sweat box to get the truth out of him.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lorenzo,
    It is not Frank Hopkins.

    Is anyone worthy of this contest. No, none of you are worthy. Maybe I should have posted a picture of John Wayne. Then maybe someone could have gotten it.

  18. Roger,
    I dont know what Handsome Jack is up to. Chickie Town has been quiet this week. He has gone to town several times this week.

  20. Lorenzo,
    Persistent . . . I like that. Most give up after one losing entry, but you have mustered the strength to make two WRONG entries.

    Unfortunately, the game continues.

  21. Jack Hoxie ... and thats my final answer... unless I'm wrong!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Intense Guy,

    Yawn. No better than the last attempt.

    It is not Jack Hoxie.

    PJM

  23. Danny,
    It is not Basilio Ramos.

    Hmmm . . . I wonder who it could be.

    I think I will go make myself a fine coffee.

  24. Benito Juarez is my guess. Did I spoil your breakfast?

    Al

  25. Al,
    Blog management is happy to report that your entry in no way interferes with tomorrows Victory Breakfast at the old PJM house (thumps chest).

    It is not Benito Juarez.

  26. jack elam . very young perhaps. todd from nc

    ReplyDelete
  27. Todd,
    I had hoped for better entries from North Carolina. Perhaps the South Carolina contingency can do better.

    It is not jack elam.

  28. Pearl "Pete" Ingram

  29. Lorenzo,

  30. I think it's Truman Capote's Uncle Billy (on his first trip to Otiana township in Oklahoma with Penny Shoemaker's brothers, to visit the clay works). He was as hung over as he ever was at that time of the morning - but as usual, his doeskin outfit, complete with fringe and highly polished footwear, was impeccable.

  31. I don't know who the man is, but I am confident the horse's name is Clyde.

    Happy New Year from St. John's!

  32. Funchange and Anon,
    Neither of your entries have dampened my New Years spirit.

    Perhaps I should send Mrs. PJM to town for Victory Breakfast ingredients.

    Hmmm . . . what would be a suitable breakfast.

    The game continues.

  33. I'd probably have better luck naming the horse.

    Whip Wilson with Silver Bullet?

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Karen,

    It is not Josè Barrera.

    Intense Guy,
    We need to review the objective. There is no prize for naming the horse. Actually there is no prize for winning the contest, but it is fun.

  35. Where Acorns Fall,
    That acorn did not land anywhere near the tree.

    It is not Yakima Canutt.

  36. Captain William Owen “Buckey” O’Neill

    ReplyDelete
  37. Danny,
    Back for more, eh?

    It is not Captain William Owen “Buckey” O’Neill.

    Does everyone eat Black Eyed Peas for New Years, or is that a Texas thing?
    PJM

    ReplyDelete
  38. With me it depended on which side of the family. Some had black eyed peas some had beans. Today I'm having beans (with corbread of course.)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Danny,
    Buttermilk cornbread with no sugar, I hope?

  40. This is Sir Genille Cave-Brown-Cave.

  41. Sorry I haven't been more sociable, I'm at Pismo Beach watching my son surf and comments are harder when using my phone. Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for the fun PJM!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I regret to admit that the Evil Nate Maas defeated me again.

    Drats.

    Cave-Brown was from England, came to the US, became a real cowboy, then a championship rodeo star. Then his dad died, and he became a Baron. He returned to England, then back to the US to be a Evangelist.

  43. Anon,

  44. PJM, Sorry to hear about the the canceled victory breakfast.

    Congrats Nate,

    Hope your son is catching some big waves.

  45. hello..... im new in the blog mmmmm its great your blog congratulations aahahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  46. perhaps you should get your photos from a file with a heading other than "photos only evil nate & i know" I suggest you change your strategy.
    on a completely different subject, I saw the new TRUE GRIT last night and thought Mat Damon's character's look was fashioned after Edward S Curtis, the photographer extrordinaire that took so many of the wonderful photos on oldpicture.com. PJM, are you the curator of the site? the pictures are so much richer than other curtis prints I have seen.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Azule,
    Some people speculate the Evil Nate Maas does not exist, and is my alter ego, which I use to play the game. Just a theory some have.

    I want to see the new True Grit, but have not had the chance yet.
