The first three correct answers I received were from Emily Priddy, Lynn (Lulu) Bagdon, and Ron Warnick. I received another correct answer via a phone call from Mike Ward, so I'm giving him a prize too, since we were able to have a nice long chat which I enjoyed greatly. Oh, and Denny Gibson gets a prize as well, since he was also correct and I'm still laughing about his NPR comment. The person that Ron M. was able to mimic so accurately was that of Michael Walllis. I realize that the contest was a bit unfair, since some of you have never had the pleasure of hearing his very distinctive voice. Besides being the author of Route 66: The Mother Road (the volume which is responsible for starting the resurgence of popularity of Route 66), Michael is known for his deep booming voice which can be heard at lectures all over the country and as the voice of the Sheriff in the movie Cars. http://www.michaelwallis.com/. Anyhoooo.... the prizes, meager as they are, will be sent out to the above five folks, provided I can find five prizes. I think I have all of your addresses, but I'll let you know if I don't.
Trevor.... good guess, but it wasn't former President Nixon. That should be obvious, since the message contained no lies.
Ron W. ... Ron M. was terribly insulted by your laxative comment!
Emily ... quit ragging on my antique answering machine!
(I love you guys!)
When the daughter awakens, we're off on a little road trip which will include a short visit to Afton Station, so I can't think of a better way to spend the day which, by the way, also happens to be my birthday.
