Tellin’ It Like It Is…..
It’s time for me to tell you about that photo yesterday for our Teaser. First of all I wasn’t fibbing when I said I didn’t know for sure when my Mom’s Dad took the photo…………..Mom says it HAD to be in the early 1940s though. It was pretty neat having an OLD photo as a Teaser wasn’t it? We thought it would fool everyone to tell you the truth BUT we didn’t! No we DID NOT fool each and every one of you and you’ll find out SOON the scoop on that!
Meanwhile, here’s that photo again………………..
My Grandad took that photo in Venice on the Via Garibaldi…………………..! My FIRST RIGHT GUESSER guessed that EXACTLY. I actually found a photo of this same area taken WELL after my Dad’s and it looks much the same. My parents were in Venice on their honeymoon in 1990 and Mom says that whole area down by the water was loaded with T-shirt and hat vendors and people giving away tickets on boats taking tourists over to Murano to the glass factories. It was WAY more crowded than in this photo – OR my Grandad’s photo.
(not my Mom’s photo – I found this on Google!)
So, who was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER? It was my buddy Raz from Friends Furever and this is NOT the first time he’s been a First Right Guesser either so watch out Leo and Easy! Tee Hee
Here’s your FIRST RIGHT GUESSER badge Raz:
HOWEVER – that’s not the only badge my pal Raz is getting this week – because he not only was FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, but he and my friend Easy the Wild Weimaraner TIED (exactly the same time) for the FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser! That’s right – a TIE! Both of you get this:
There actually were a couple of you who ALSO guessed Venice……….BRAVO for you! You get this:
And I know there’s a long line of you just waiting for your next BIG GREENIE (or maybe your FIRST Big Greenie???) – so here you are!
That was a fun one…………thanks to everyone who popped in to guess yesterday – I wondered if anyone would recognize the buildings as they DO look the same as they did in the 1940s for the most part……..and off to the FAR right on the old black/white photo you can see a tiny bit of water…….!!
CONGRATULATIONS WINNERS (yes this includes you winners of the Big Greenie!).
