    Answering Riddles: Which Came First. . .

    No, I don’t know if it was the chicken or the egg, but I can tell you WHO was first.

    Donna Pointkowski, What’s Past is Prologue, wins the gold ring for being first and fastest to guess where I was last month – at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

    Of course, it would have been more than “a little embarrassing” if she didn’t know that one. I took the picture standing in front of the fabulous sculpture bearing the name of her blog!

    Donna beat out Elizabeth O’Neal, Little Bytes of Life; Sheri Fenley, The Educated Genealogist; footnote Maven; and Becky Wiseman, Kinexxions – they are ALL pretty savvy.

    Jenna, Desperately Seeking Surnames, also correctly guessed from the Day 2 photo that I was in D.C.; I have to go look for her posts about her trip to the Library of Congress. That’s a future destination.

    Day 3 Winner was the incomparable footnoteMaven who correctly named the photo subject as Ottomanelli & Sons Prime Meat Market in the West Village of New York City. The butcher’s special on Lady Gaga flank steak was just to good to pass up.
