MONDAY MYSTERY GUEST

"AND THE ANSWER IS......."
Hey Hounders,
J.E.B. here today doing our post. We've been doing chore lists all weekend so we're behind the 8 ball. We haven't done a Mystery Guest for today but plan do do one again next week. But, of course, we have to announce last week's Mystery Guest, so here goes.

Last week's Monday Mystery Guest clues were and their relationship to the Mystery Guest:

1. MG originated 2/3rds from the area of vast forests in the north of Russia. - The majority, 2/3, of the MG has origins in Siberia.

2. A medicine man writing prescriptions for happy hearts. - The MG is, at least partly, a doctor who writes prescriptions to patients for those favor canine treats that we all love to snack on, Happy Heart Cookies.

3. To visit the MG you'd better bring along a bumbershoot just in case and go by SEA. - A bumbershoot is an umbrella needed in rainy places and SEA is the airport identifier for the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

4. Near the sound of water where the seahawks roost and mariners anchor. - The Seattle Seahawks NFL footbal team and the Seattle Mariners major league baseball team both have their home fields in Seattle , WA on the shore of Puget Sound.

5. The sevens all fly away from nearby. - The Boeing Aircraft Company has manufacturing and delivery centers in Seattle, Renton and Everett, WA where the 707, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767 and 777 airliners are assembled and then flown away.

6. A dog can be a cat by name only. - A dog can be named Kat.

7. The number that sang about riding the MTA to watch Tom Dooley hang and got wooed. - The Kingston TRIO (3) sang these songs.


8. They favor a breed that plays football near them. - The University of Washington is located in Seattle. The schools mascot is a Husky and the school's student body, faculty, alumni and athletic teams are known as the Huskies.

9. There's plenty of iron oxide and space to thread a needle. - Seattle weather is known for its' rain that causes iron, and other metals, to oxidize and form rust. The city of Seattle's most prominent landmark is a remnant of the 1962 World's Fair: The Space Needle.

10. Two against the one who owned a talking horse. - The MG is made up of 3 individuals: 2 Huskies and the other one's name is the same as the character owner of the talking horse, Mr. ED; Wilbur.

The VIDEO CLUE was the opening sequence from the 1968 television series "Here Come The Brides" which was set in frontier Seattle.

So we have Seattle, Siberia, Husky, Kat, Wilbur. So our Monday Mystery Guest from last week was none other than (Dr.) Steve, Kat and Wilbur: a.k.a. THE WASHINGTON WOOS.

Bonus: What's the MG blog site? http://stevekatwilbur.blogspot.com/

We had 8 correct response from Huffle, Clive, Ao4, Khyra, Paco, Milo & Maya, Bob and his 2 Goldens: Hamish and Sophie, Ruby (Red Dog) and of course The Washington Woos themselves.

Thanks for playing. Congratulation to the winners. We hope y'all have a GReat labor Day and don't have to do any labor.

Woo hoo! That was fun. Too bad we have to wait a week for the next game, but it looks like you put a lot of work into it.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Hey, we learned something! We didn't know what a bumbershoot was. There is a festival going on this weekend called Bumbershoot. We thought it was named for a casino.

STEP UP TO ADOPT A PET

If you can, please consider opening your home to a homeless animal, preferably a dog or cat or other domesticated animal; livestock does better on farms and wild animals do better in zoos and parks. Your local Humane Society or SPCA or Animal Shelter has a wide selection of could be, should be, pets looking for new homes. If you can't adopt, perhaps you can at least become a sponsor. We'll show you how to help out Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary (AHGRRS) on our blog page, but you can help out any organization of your choice, but please help; contribute or volunteer.

PLEASE HELP SPONSOR A SENIOR OR SPECIAL NEEDS GOLDEN

CAN'T ADOPT; BECOME AN ANGEL.
So many Senior and Special Needs Goldens do not find "forever homes". Many of these dogs have above average medical needs and costs, are maintained on "special" diets, or have other extraordinary needs. Your donations can be targeted towards a particular Senior or Special needs Golden Retriever. As a sponsor, you will receive updates about your "special" Golden, and will be mentioned in our quarterly newsletter as the dog's sponsor. We also accept Paypal donations. Please keep in mind that we are a non-profit organization and that your donation is fully tax-deductible. Please just write the Golden's name in the memo line of your check or Paypal submission when sponsoring a Golden Retriever.
