Person-of-Mystery

Today is Saturday, and this marks the launch of our Person-of-Mystery™ contest, where I post a picture and you have to try and figure out who it is.  I thought about starting easy, but figured that wouldn't be right and instead give you a relative unknown figure.  Good luck!

Non-evil Nate Mass

Charity Grimes said...

Is dat boy Nate's Daddy?

Nate Maas said...

Sheila, thanks for your submission, but it is not me. Keep up the good work. I'm sure a correct answer is not beyond your grasp!

Judi said...

Does spelling count, Sheila? In which case I'd guess Nate Maas.

Nate Maas said...

Charity, thanks for your submission. It is not my father, (AKA My Best Friend). Although this person would not be far removed age wise.

Nate Maas said...

Judi, although I'm a teacher, I'm okay with misspellings on this site. It's still not me. Thanks for playing. Feel free to guess again, anytime.

Nate Maas said...

Oh, PJM, PJM, where are you?

Charity Grimes said...

PJM aint goin to be playin. You done made him real mad.

Sheila said...

I'm going to guess PJM.

Nate Maas said...

Sheila, it is not PJM. Besides, imaginary people do not show up in photos. Keep up the good work! I'm certain correct answer is not far off.

Nate Maas said...

I think I might need to talk to my family about what we should have for breakfast tomorrow. Any suggestions?

Nate Maas said...

Note: I'll be away from my computer for 10 minutes. I have to pick up my oldest son at the pool.

Stanley McChrystal

Nate Maas said...

Jim, nice to see you. Good guess, but it is not Gen. McChrystal. I'm impressed at your deductive skill. Probably useful when fighting Super Villains too.

carla said...

General Petraeus?

Nate Maas said...

Carla, thanks for your guess, but it is not Gen. Petraeus either. Although, you guys are correct, he was a member of the military.

carla said...

Oliver North?

Nate Maas said...

Carla, it is not Oliver North. Today's Person-of-Mystery is no longer living. Thanks for the good guess!

Charity Grimes said...

David Dolby?

Nate Maas said...

Charity. Nice to see you are still playing. Unfortunately, it is not David Dolby. The game remains afoot.

carla said...

Hmmm. It looks like a cadet uniform or ROTC; the hair cut looks early 60s. Not Pat Tillman.

Nate Maas said...

Carla, couldn't tell if that was a guess or not, but Pat Tillman he is not. Keep guessing!

carla said...

No, Tillman wasn't really a guess, just thinking with the keyboard...

John O'Neill?

Nate Maas said...

I like your thinking. Famous people and MOH recipients will get you there. It is not John O'Neill. Today's Person-of-Mystery is a decorated veteran.

Nate Maas said...

Okay, I'm headed to the roof to work on the trim, but I'll continue to check in from my phone.

carla said...

Michael Murphy?

Charity Grimes said...

Nick Bacon?

Charity Grimes said...

Robert L. Howard?

Nate Maas said...

Neither Murphy or Bacon. Keep up the good sleuthing!

Charity Grimes said...

But how bout Robert Howard?

carla said...

Fernando Garcia?

Joan said...

Dan Truett McWhorter?

Charity Grimes said...

I lik dat utter boys contest better. He give answers more quickr

Nate Maas said...

No not Howard either. I'm not a big breakfast guy,, but maybe I'll learn to like them.

Nate Maas said...

No answers correct yet. Sorry for the delay, I'm on the roof as I write. Domestic duty.

Charity Grimes said...

dat utter boy don go up roof in middl contest

Nate Maas said...

I know. I had no control over the timing of that udder gus's escalation of our nemesis struggle.

Charity Grimes said...

Das not Joe Hooper now?

Nate Maas said...

Not Hooper or any of dem McWhorters.

Nate Maas said...

Nor Garcia, but thank you for the guess.

William said...

Donald Ward Evans Jr.

Nate Maas said...

William, thanks for the guess, but it's not Evans.

Anonymous said...

Robert Mcnamara

Anonymous said...

How about George Patton?

Charity Grimes said...

Ed Freeman

Nate Maas said...

Not McNamara, Patton, nor Freeman. Good guessing. Would it help if I told you there was debate over if he should get the Medal of Honor?

Charity Grimes said...

Donald Cook

Charity Grimes said...

Audie Murphy

Charity Grimes said...

mebe I gots it dat time.

Nate Maas said...

Sorry Charity, neither Cook nor Murphy.

Nate Maas said...

I never realized it before, but PJM must feel like Rumpelstiltskin each Saturday.

Rob From Amersfoort said...

Hey Nate. Nice blog! At least you gave us some hints. I think the person is the ex-unknown Vietnam soldier Michael Blassie.

Anonymous said...

Good Job, Rob. you got it again!
P

Nate Maas said...

We have our first winner! Congrats, Rob!

Yes, this is Michael Blassie, the former Unknown Soldier from the Vietnam Conflict. As some of you know, each Unknown Soldier is awarded the Medal of Honor. There was a bit of debate over whether Blassie should get the MOH, since it was given to him (in a way). In the end, his body was reinterred in Missouri and the MOH is on display at Arlington.

Flartus said...

Nate, congratulations on the success of your first Person of Mystery Contest. I notice PJM did not appear...perhaps he was overwhelmed by the sheer number of comments.

Charity is a hoot! Is she real?

Flartus said...

Hmmm...maybe PJM did show up here. The line between evil nemesis and supervillain is a subtle one.

Nate Maas said...

Thanks Flartus, I'm sure PJM is in his fortress/lair working on his next evil scheme. Seems like super villainy never rests. Then again, perhaps it's just better funded. Charity is a hoot. I've known her for some time now and is a close friend. She has a keen sense of humor. It was nice to have her turn up today to support the blog, as I remain grateful for the rest of you as well.

As we're only on Day 3, I think the progress is coming along nicely. I think I finally got natemaas.com to redirect here correctly. I had forgotten I even had that domain until someone noticed it wasn't working. Glad I've finally found a use for it.

Charity Grimes said...

Ise not a hoot. Dat be my brudder in law. Only he spell his name wid a e, Silas Hoote
