The Jan. 29 mystery picture remains a mystery. This is always fun. The doors are in plain sight and we are sure many of you recognize them, so we will wait for more callers.
We did receive voice mails and emails from some previous mystery pictures and it is always great to hear from readers.
Brenda Downing called reminding us that she is "formerly of East Norwich, and the late Richard Downing's wife. I reside in Dallas, Georgia now and receive the paper every week. I recognized the picture in the Jan. 22, issue. It's a celebration of TR's 150th birthday on Oct. 27 of 2008. It just so happens I was present there on Long Island for the funeral of my mother-in-law Edith Downing." Of course, she is correct and we are glad to hear that she was at the festivities.
Frank Stellaccio also called about the same picture, recognizing that, "It is at the Roosevelt estate, Sagamore Hill. I recognize the portico of TR's house in the picture," said the East Norwich resident.
Billy Minicozzi guessed the Jan. 29 photo was the doors going into a church or mansion. He said, "The Steelers will win the SuperBowl!"
He was right. It was another great day in America as everyone in the country, including our servicemen, watched the game and munched chicken wings and drank beer. [The Army allowed the troops a day of rest and relaxed their regulations.]
The stadium was a moving scene as Steeler fans waved their golden Terrible Towels, the purchase of which helped the economy! Bruce Springsteen provided a great halftime. The Cardinals almost won until the last two minutes and a half when Larry Fitzgerald caught his second touchdown pass.
The game kept everyone's interest proving that it isn't over until it's over. Thanks to instant replay, fans got to see some of the crucial plays over and over as the judges made their decisions.
It was the best of technology with one of America's favorite old-time sports that keep on giving us pleasure and inspiration. And that is not even touching on the fun of the commercials. We can't wait until next year.
Thanks for the good prediction Billy! - DFK
