Here’s three mystery chaps. Our guest is in the middle.

Last week’s mystery guest was Polly Walters and the weekend guest was Gregg Palmer. Congratulations to Don Danard for recognizing him!

There’s a new photo on the jump!

Nov. 24, 2010, Mystery Book Please congratulate Eve Golden, Mary Mallory (who was also right on the photographer), Cold in PHX, Randy Skretvedt, Carmen, Waldo Lydecker, Fibber McGee, Rick Scott and Patrick McDonald for identifying our mystery guest.

His mystery companions may be a little more enigmatic. Here he is with another mystery pal. And what’s this mystery book on the shelf behind them? “The White Black Sheep?” This could be an important clew as to where the photo was taken.

Here’s our mystery guest with several mystery companions … Hullo …  What’s this? That fellow on the right looks awfully familiar…. Wasn’t he a mystery guest a while back? Please congratulate Mary Mallory for identifying yesterday’s mystery companion and Mike Hawks for identifying Monday’s trio.

Here’s our mystery guest (oh, is that his name on the cake?) with two companions. One will be easy – the other will be a little more challenging! Please congratulate Mary Mallory for identifying one of the mystery women in yesterday’s photo. They are Phyllis Haver and former mystery guest Sally Eilers. And yes, there was also former mystery guest Jack Mulhall.

Update: Our mystery lady is Peggy Connelly!
