Who in the World???



Any guesses as to who this guy is? Some questions you might want to ask yourselves are: Was this picture taken before the world had color? or just before they had color film? Or was this picture taken recently with black & white film and a cheapy camera? If you came accross this guy would you ever go near him again? hehehe...

Since my last several posts have been quite serious and kind of discouraging, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest. So please, if you have ANY guesses, post them! Whoever guesses the right answer FIRST wins a prize! (to be determined at a later time by a group of judges) And as another disclaimer... I'm quite sure that the person in the photo does NOT know that I put it here (at least not yet)... but probably won't sue me over it. ;)

Let the games begin!

Ok Nancy this is insane! I didn't want to be the first one to post because I would have to look stupid. Oh wait, I'm used to it! I've showed to my co-workers and my family. My FIL guess is Bing Crosby. Now remember my FIL is 97! So I guess that is my guess, even though I cheated!

Nancy said...

Hehehe! No, it's not Bing Crosby. GOOD GUESS!!! Thanks for being such a good sport!

Tammy said...

Honestly I have NO IDEA!!! But if I had to cheat (well... Not exactly cheating - lol) I would guess - Ronny Taylor?????

I would tell you how I guessed that unless I'm right - lol

Tammy said...

I of course mean "I wont tell you how I guessed that..." My lack of sleep is getting the better of me -lol (why is that funny you ask??? I have no clue)...

~Tammy, Proud Mom to: Zoe and Zurik

Nancy said...

Haha Tammy, I know how you cheated! I named the photo and you got it that way. You are soooo sneaky!

Ok... Next question... who is Ronny Taylor and how do I know him?

Ronny Talor is your dad!!!
That picture is him in colledge!

I've looked at the pic twice, and figured it's either a random famous celeb, or it's an old pic of a family member!

Of course, it could be a newer imagine that you've altered to LOOK old... Or you have a really bad camera ;)

Nancy said...

Dan, Dan, Dan.... My camera isn't THAT bad and no, I didn't alter it.

I take it you haven't read all the other comments and guesses? lol

That photo is a picture of your dad while we were in college in 1961. Where did you get it? Not even sure that I have that! It's got to be your dad!

Julie T. said...

That's got to be a photo of your dad while we were in college. Where on earth did you get that?
Don't even think that I have that one?

Nancy said...

Mom, you are right! You still remember what your husband used to look like when you two were dating, huh? Impressive... even after being married for 45 years. :)

Alissa Ingram got it from her mom (who went to college with you and Dad). Aparently Alissa had it on her fridge for quite awhile. I saw her at the store recently and she promised to send it to me... and she did!

John said...

I knew it had to be your dad. The resemblance is obvious! :-P

Anonymous said...

hehe nope, hadn't read any other comments as that would be cheating - even though family members get the edge by knowing who it is, and Tammy *really* cheated!

Guess I am a better person ;) hehe

Nancy said...

Yeah, John, it's not only MY dad but YOUR dad too. And as far as the resemblance goes... I'm afraid I look more like Mom than Dad.... not sure which is scarier since I seem to be turning into my mom. (No offence Mom. lol)

Julie T. said...

I sure didn't know that Penny had a photo like that. I've been here several times and thought that looked like Dad, but couldn't figure out how Nancy got a photo like that. She wasn't around when we were in college.

Julie T. said...

PS, it really should be destroyed!

Nancy said...

It's probably a good thing I wasn't around when you and Dad were in college... considering you two left collge when you got married and moved to Mexico... and considering I'm your second child. hehe...

Nancy said...

And ps, Mom,
That picture is too funny to destroy! When you come into town next we can post a GOOD picture of Dad on my blog. Just don't forget to bring one! ;-)

Nancy said...

Seems that the contest is over. The picture of that silly guy is in fact MY DAD! Well, he wasn't a dad when the picture was taken... but you know what I mean.

Since the person who first guessed the right answer decided to be ANONYMOUS... then I will just have to keep the prize for myself. Unless Anynymous wants to speak up and claim it. ?????
