E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net (remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to the following art question .

DEDICATION: These contests are dedicated to my sister, Peggy, who answered more of the questions correctly than anyone else so far.

QUESTION

Sexual harassment is certainly nothing new. This major female actress, wrote this about working at her classic TV series:

“That show catered to every kinky thing imaginable – and no wonder considering some of the writers we had. We had a foot fetishist I’ll never forget. That’s why I was always being photographed in leather boots with my feet stuck in the air somehow. Another one was fascinated by bondage, so for another string of shows I was always getting tied up in some outlandish way. And the leather! God, I thought I’d never get out of all that leather. ”

Name the actress. (Then stop sexual harassment!)

FINE PRINT: The prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can always listen to all the music , read all my writings, and see all the art, whether you win or lose – and I’d be glad if you did!

Readers, IF you like these puzzles and would like to resend them to friends, post them on any newsgroup, or any website, please do so. The more the merrier!

The Quizzical back from a month’s vacation

May 11, 2015

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
The Beatles always had great covers for their albums. This question is about the Abbey Road cover, where the 4 are crossing the walk near their recording studio.
For this either or question, you only get one chance. Q. Are the Beatles walking away from their studio or towards it?
Here is a live cam of the spot
http://www.abbeyroad.com/crossing

IS:
(From the Beatles Bible) A policeman held up the traffic as Macmillan, from a stepladder positioned in the middle of the road, took six shots as the group walked across the zebra crossing just outside the studio.

The Beatles crossed the road a number of times while Macmillan photographed them. 8 August was a hot day in north London, and for four of the six photographs McCartney walked barefoot; for the other two he wore sandals.

Shortly after the shoot, McCartney studied the transparencies and chose the fifth one for the album cover. It was the only one when all four Beatles were walking in time. It also satisfied The Beatles’ desire for the world to see them walking away from the studios they had spent so much of the last seven years inside.

I had no correct answers – seems the answers were walking in the wrong direction on this one.  I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my FIRST cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT”(‘06) or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my MORE NEWEST cd Called “FOUR-TH” (‘08) or my MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH (Nov.’09) or my MORE NEWEST NEWEST cd CALLED ’6-TH’(Feb ’12), or my even NEWER THAN THAT cd CALLED “7-TH (early 2014), or my even NEWER UP TO DATE CD CALLED “#8-TH (08/14) or my very newest #9 out now. OR a download card for a free streaming CD.

IF you are the first to E-MAIL ME , AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net (remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION
Setting: NYC in the 30’s. Macy’s Department Store had advertised that it had a toy version of this. The next morning there was a queue of 20,000 people, one third of a mile long, waiting for the store to open to get that toy. What toy was it?
Good Luck!
