Paul J. McWhorter

Yesterday's Person-of-Mystery was none other than the notorious Paul J. McWhorter (also known as PJM),  author of the Old Picture of the Day blog.


Paul passed the half-century mark on Friday, so to mark the occasion, I figured I'd use a old photo I found of him.  As some of you may recall, this blog was started in response to his regular chicanery and machinations.  It is true, he seemed a little out of place in the Confederate uniform, but since his photo has appeared on this blog before, I figured someone might recognize him.  

Like yesterday's photo, Paul is something of an anachronism, he appeared in Ripley's as the first person ever to get his driver's license in a Model T Ford.  You see back when most people were driving Model Ts, no one needed to get permission from the government to drive.


It would appear from his blog, that Paul is planning on restoring a couple Model Ts that he currently owns.  We'll be monitoring this latest development to make sure that peaceful purposes prevail and that this doesn't somehow mark a return to his former nefarious ways.  It would not surprise me at all though if he were planning on making an appearance in next year's Toenail Trail Day parade, perhaps driving a shiny antique auto, waving to the good people of Christoval with a peafowl feather in his cap.

Paul like myself is a school teacher – which reminds me, as of yesterday, I'm now on summer!  Ah, what joy!
