Well, Zen should be done moving by now and should just be shuffling boxes. Perhaps he now looks like our new man:
Good morning. Yes, the cable is working and no longer have to steal internet access from the neighbors. We are in and all we have to do is unpack. As to Mr. Blue Corvette, I have no idea.
Zen, glad the move went well.
NPP, I can think of many a wrench that would be "good" to him!! And, n-o-o, his name is not Mister Goodbar either!
Clue #1- He's 95 and still going strong- has a star on the Hollywood Wallk of Fame and was inducted into the California Hall of Fame.
Clue #2- He often says, "I cannot afford to die, it will ruin my image."
Clue #3- He is considered "the godfather" in his field of expertise. No one kicks sand in his face.
Clue #1- Saturday is his day, and he defintely has a Baltimore connection:
Sorry, no statue, could only find this one relief of the man.
Clue #2- However, the Naval Academy does offer a replica of something that was awarded to our man for sale.
Clue #3- There is a park in Annapolis named for our man....and no, it's not "Commodore" Park.
Clue #4- Our man operated as a privateer during the American Revolutionary War, commanding several ships, and was highly successful in capturing enemy ships during this period, not once suffering a defeat.
Clue #6- Our man was in command of one of the current Inner Harbor treasures. Previously, he had overseen its construction, and, after a rank dispute, was placed in charge of the ship by President Washington. He was promoted to commodore and met with considerable success. His victories, perhaps most notably that over the French vessel L'Insurgente, made our man a hero of the time.
Thomas Truxtun...there are a number of Sea Shanties (Chanties) about that battle
Clue #1- Our man convinced his younger brother to work with him. His brother was killed when the steamboat he was working on exploded. Our man had foreseen this death in a detailed dream a month earlier, which inspired his interest in parapsychology. Guilt-stricken, our man held himself responsible for the rest of his life. He worked on the river and served as a river pilot until the American Civil War broke out, and traffic along the Mississippi was curtailed.
Clue #2- When his job disappeared, our man headed west. He and another brother traveled for more than two weeks on a stagecoach to Virginia City, Nevada, where he became a miner. This trip became the basis for his next career.
Clue #3- Our man failed as a miner and found work at a Virginia City newspaper. From maritime to miner to writer...quite some big occupational jumps.
Clue #4- Our man then moved to San Francisco, where he continued working as a journalist.
Clue #5- In 1865, our man had achieved fame with one of his short stories. The next year, he traveled to what is now present-day Hawaii as a reporter for the Sacramento Union. His resulting travelogues were popular and became the basis for his first lectures.
