Myster Critter Wednesday 12 Solved



M and I went out to dinner with some of her college friends at downtown Disney last month. We spotted some Lego displays and I was so excited. I just knew these would be wonderful Mystery Critters. I will try to post some of the others Saturday for the Camera Critters meme. That's right Gaelyn, a Lego Dragon!

So, on to the important reveal. This weeks winner was so detailed and absolutely accurate that I am pasting her answer here...

Knowing I may face ridicule, but having raised five kids who loved legos, it looks to me like it could be the mouth of the giant lego T-Rex that is outside the Imagination Center in Downtown Disney. Now, I have never been to Florida, but with your clue and your photo and having learned something of your mindset from having read previous Mystery Critter Wednesdays, I googled and I found a tiny photo of the T-Rex. So on that basis I am going to go out on that precarious limb here.

Elaine!!! What a great job of research. Perhaps Joan and Tom, not to mention Scooter could learn a thing or two about how this game is played. I just love Elaine's blog called "Arctic View". She has been posting some amazing photo's of Sandhill Crane's. Located in Alaska, the complete oposite corner of the US from Florida, Elaine brings one of the most beautiful states in North America to us in brilliant detail. She also apparently has her own sled dog team as this is how she told me her donation is being sent to me here in Florida.

I hope everyone will pay Elaine a visit and say congratulations, you will not be disappointed and will want to follow her Alaskan blog for sure.

Thanks for playing along everyone!

Mystery Critter Wednesday Round 12

Downtown Disney



Welcome back to MCW. They say that Africa is the cradle of civilization, however, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that Orlando, Florida did it's part as well. I know this may offend some of my loyal followers, I won't mention any names (Joan, from South African Photographs) but you know how it is with blogs, there seems to be a trouble maker in every bunch. You all know the rules, the one with the correct answer and the most details will win. But if Mama ask,s Scot won, OK? We just wont tell him this time... he never reads what I write anyway, he just looks at the pictures anyhow. Good luck everyone and thanks for playing.

Sorry for the long delay. There were so many near winners this week. I am going to let Scotter pick the real winner. This is the Alligator Snapping Turtle. I plan to get some good information about this interesting fellow soon, but didn't want to delay the reveal any longer, so here he is.

Thanks for playing everyone.

Mystery Critter Wednesday Round 11

Silver Springs




It's that time again. MCW presents yet another Silver Springs mystery. Congratulation Scooter for your upcomming win and thanks for having mama back off just a little bit. I just want to apologize to Joan this week, well because she doesn't have a prayer for getting this one! LOL I am sorry did I say that out loud?

Good luck everyone and have fun!

Mystery Critter Wednesday 10 Solved






The overwhelming majority knew right away what this Mystery Critter was. Kelly was the first to respond with the very close answer of albino crocodile. Joan was however the first to mention albino alligator. From there just about everyone followed suit and I must admit that I revealed way too much detail and should have made it a little harder, but I hope everyone had fun just the same.

So it is with great personal amusement that I announce this week’s winner. Ladies and gentleman, I give you SCOOTER!!! Congratulations little brother on your 10th straight MCW win. I don’t know how you do it week after week. (Now will you please tell mama to stop calling me? It’s bad enough I have to take grief from all my followers!)

Thanks for playing along and I hope to see you all back soon.

Good luck everyone and have fun!

M's photo

I feel that it is time for a blogging poll.

I have been catching a lot of heat lately over my photos. Yea I know, go figure, everyone is fine with the stories I post, but they are drawing the line when it comes to the photographic evidence. Y’all are giving me way too much credit. I wish I could doctor my photos but the truth is, I am just not that technically savvy. Now when it comes to telling tall tales, you might have something to talk about.

But first let’s call the trouble makers out by name. That’s right, I am calling you out! It seems that M has joined forces with that bug lady and J, Jane, Jalynn, or what ever her name is. Yea, that’s right J, I know about you too! The horrible rumor boils down to this. I have been using without permission and claiming credit for photos not taken by me but rather M! I KNOW, it pains me to even write such an outrageous accusation.

I have provided two photos of Flamingos for you to see. The above one was taking by M. The photo below was taken by me. Again this is from our day trip to Silver Springs. As you can clearly see I do not need to steal anyone’s photos!



My photo

Please vote on which photo you would rather see on my blog, this is the blogging poll part. As for the conspiracy, why is everybody always pickin’ on me?

Thanks for stopping by,

Craig Glenn

PS. M’s photo was taken right before we were invited to leave the park. It’s seems there is a rule about entering the animal enclosure and stalking the Flamingos for that perfect shot. Thanks a lot M!
