What Is It #11 Solved

Time to solve the mystery of what yesterday's pictures were of. The first one was especially difficult to figure out.

Finding Pam was on the right track, and her guess of: "Rocket engine motor" (along with correctly identifying the other two) made her the big winner!

Honorable mention goes to BJ Roan who even went so far as to Google Space Shuttle pictures in hopes of gleaning the answer. Her official guess of: "Space Shuttle's exhaust pipe!" was a good one, but a few decades into the future.

Pow! Biff! Zam!

They always look like bland cheese wedges to me

And now for the winner we have a little prize:

Congratulations Pam. Feel free to proudly display this if you wish, and no worries if you'd rather not.

I'll have to remember to break out this little guessing game more often. Almost forgot how much fun it is to read your guesses.


Ron said...

Bravo! Congrats Pam!!!

Hey, I would have never guessed rocket engine motor - so, way to go dear lady!

oooh...and YES Jeff, please post
"What Is It" every once in awhile, cause it's so much FUN!!!

Nessa said...

Cool. I didn't guess any of them.

nitebyrd said...

Congrats, Pam!

It is fun, Jeff. Making up answers is always a pleasure.

(I'm gonna have a "game" post next month for a prize!)

Jeff B said...

Ron- Consider it done, but just in case my feeble little mind forgets, remind me.

Nessa- As they say, "Better luck nest time."

Nitebyrd- I'll be looking for it.

BJ Roan said...

Well, bummer..honorable mention is nice, but to win would have been sublime. I really think I should get some sort of award for coming up with the most blond answer.

Finding Pam said...

Jeff, I am so honored to have received this award and I have to thank my sons and my darling husband, all my wonderful friends in blogland and my other friends for without their support I would be nothing. I have just the right spot for this ingenious award. If you only knew how much I love Cracker Jacks!LOL

Thanks Really!

Jeff B said...

BJ- I actually thought you did a pretty good job coming up with an answer. Now a blond award, hmmmmm, that's got me thinking.

Pam- Sounds like somebody watched the Oscars the other night.

and you're welcome.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Congratulations to Pam. I would have never gotten the first or the third. The clue didn't help me at all with the first one. I don't wear makeup, so there you have it.

Have a terrific day. :)

Desert Songbird said...

I should have known that first one. After all, my hubby is a rocket scientist! (Not really, but he IS a rocket engineer.)

You would really enjoy the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio! Right by Wright- Patterson Air Force Base...

I git two mostly right.

Sandi McBride said...

Pam, you rock!

Bond said...

arg..I love this game and being on the road caused me to miss it

Congrats to Pam

Mel said...




Don't mind me--minor tantrum over being SO overloaded I didn't get to make my usual visits.


k.....I wouldn't have guessed the rocket engine...

Congratulations Pam!

Jeff B said...

Sandee- Ya but you nailed number two!

Songbird- Very observant. Bwahahahaha

Buffalo- I'll bet I would. The one I mentioned in the post is really worth visiting if you ever make it our this way. The Spruce Goose is there too.

Dr John- You'll have to give it a shot next time around too.

Sandi- Indeed she does.

Bond- Bummer dude. I'll be doing it again soon though.

Mel- Stop stomping you feet now and breath... We'll play this again soon.

Travis said...

Oh for Pete's sake! I forgot to play.

maryt/theteach said...

Hi Jeff, I love your new design of your site! Also I was so pleased to see you've posted that photo guessing game. Hope you do it again. I'll check back... :)

buffalodick said...

Dayton has a Blackbird, a B-36, Boxcars-dropped the nuke, and many other planes of historical value! And unless something changed- it's free..

Jeanne said...

Came by to say "thanks" for your kind words on my guest post over at Tracie's.

I'll have to come back -- I'd love to win your Cracker Jack award!

Jeff B said...

Travis- It'll come around again.

Mary- Thanks for checking in.

Buffalo- that free part has a nice ring to it!

Jeanne- Your quite welcome. Thought it was a beautifully written piece and I could feel the love you have for your daughter in it.
