Mystery Picture Time!!

Ann H Gabhart Ann's Posts, One Writer's Journal 34 Comments

It’s mystery picture game time. I’m a little late with the post, but a couple of granddaughters decided to spend the night. That slows Grammy down. Actually a grandson and some friends are camping here on the farm too, but they can manage on their own. Way too cold for me. Not that I’ve ever done any camping. Once the family camped out back there a long time ago, but the house was close. I had a young toddler and so we came to the house where there were beds. So I’ve never really experienced sleeping on the ground camping. Thinking now I never will.

But I promised a mystery picture puzzle game again and so here it is. This is the first picture. I thought maybe it was a good one, but the more I look at it, the more I’m sure it won’t be much of a mystery. But anyway, take a guess. Right or wrong – the guess will get you an entry into a drawing for one of my books, including the new Hidden Springs mystery, Murder Is No Accident, if that’s the winner’s choice. I’ll pick three winners at the end of the game on Sunday, March 26th. You have to be 18 to enter the drawing, but your kids can help you guess. Each guess on a new picture gets you another entry in the drawing, but only one guess/entry per mystery picture. Oh, and it’s also more fun if you guess before you read everybody else’s guesses.

So, ready set go. And meanwhile I’ll be thinking hard on a new mystery picture to post on Wednesday.

Today was my daughter’s birthday and I didn’t get to tell her happy birthday. The first time ever I’ve not at least talked to her on her birthday. I called a couple of times but she’s traveling and perhaps didn’t get the call. My son once several years ago called me on his birthday when he wasn’t at home because he knew I’d be trying to reach him. I’m going to tell my daughter that’s what she should have done, but then perhaps she’s having so much fun celebrating life that the day sped by too quickly to call. I’ll make her talk to me twice as long next time she calls. 🙂

As always, thanks for reading.

    All I can think of is a fur coat or a gorilla. 😊
    It looks easy to you because you know what it is. LOL
    Very disconcerting when we can’t get hold of our children. Our minds conjur up all kinds of scenarios. Praying by now you have heard from her and have had that long talk. 😊

      I did better than that, Karen. I headed down her way and spent the weekend, but that was already planned before I didn’t get to talk to her on her birthday. We made up for it in talking this weekend. She’s a great daughter.

      And that’s an interesting guess on that mystery photo. The rest of the picture has already been revealed in my next post. That is just a smidgen or a delicious homemade cherry pie. But you get your name in the drawing hat anyway.

      I hope not a knife, Lana!! That’s a scene right out of a mystery story or maybe a thriller. Fun guess. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you’ll enjoy the new Hidden Springs mystery. You’ll have to come to my book party on April 2. Check out the details on my events page, http://www.annhgabhart.com/events.

    I may be crazy, but I see a small critter inside so I’m guessing the hollow of a tree or tree stump surrounded by snow and in the hollow is a small animal nest.

      Fun guess, Jean. And you just never know what I might spot on one of my walks, so could be right. Could not be. Check it out Wednesday night for the full picture reveal. 🙂

    Well, it’s looking as though a lot of you are hungry the way you’re guessing pies, cobblers, cherry filling on candy, chocolate truffle, jelly filled cookies or cherry bonbon and some of you are even getting down to basics with bread and jam or preserves. Not saying you’re right or wrong, but we sure could have a party with all those yummy suggestions. I’ll take the cherry pie because that has to be my all time favorite.

    Some of the other guesses were wonderful. Love the imagination and you know, you could be right. I am sometimes pretty tricky, but Julie, that gorilla elbow or hand in snow, hmm. You must have seen me taking that picture at the zoo in the middle of the winter, or it could be now with the way snow is in the forecast. LOL. Actually, I’ll just go ahead and tell you. It’s not any part of a gorilla, but your guess has me smiling. And Marji has leaves in snow. That’s a great guess. Really liked your guess, Evelyn. The muddy shoe print on a run. That’s from a woman that surely knows exactly what that looks like.

    Thanks to all of you for your guesses. Love all of them. Not saying it any of them are right, but they might be. I tested out a few new pictures to next time on my granddaughter this morning. Didn’t find one she thought would do the job of tricking you. So we’ll see on Wednesday. 🙂
