Time Challenge

To my knowledge, no photo of youthful me and bicycle exists.  That was many many years ago, and few photos were taken of anything.  Not to mention Mom didn’t like the exploding flash powder.  😉

So, here is a time challenge of sorts:

Which clock is from Tiffany’s in New York?  (Don’t get the wrong idea)

Which clock is from Mary’s Emporium in Watseka, IL?  (This would be the correct idea)

Enjoy Enya as you make this clearly arduous decision

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    I’m guessing Tiffany’s on left.

    Enya reminds me of the residential high school I attended (more about this when I do this challenge). My roommate had a good stereo, so when one of our friends was putting together the choreography for a ballet performance, she came down to our room to cut the tape for it. We listened to Caribbean Blue soooo many times, I can still remember that whole song and how they cut and mixed it over a weekend.

    I’m going with Tiffany’s on the left too. Only a fancy place like that would use “IIII” instead of “IV”

      You are indeed a Super Sleuth! Is IIII a valid Roman Numeral?
      We can thank the Hindus and Arabs for not having to deal with them.

        No, I don’t think “IIII” is a valid Roman Numeral. And I was even more perplexed by the fact that Tiffany’s abandoned consistency by using “IX” instead of “VIIII”.

    We have two winners!!
    Grand prize of $1.00 US dollar will be shared — payable at 10 cents a year over 10 years — shipping and handling charges will be assigned. 😉

      In that case, please donate my share of the winnings — along with my matching contribution — to “Any Candidate Who Can Kick Donald Out of Office.”

      • By: Rich-Illinois Posted: June 2, 2020

        In that case, the shipping and handling charges have been dropped. 🙂

    I’m a bit late to the clock challenge – the one on the left looks older, so it was also my choice. But Greg’s reasoning was more convincing.
    So no winnings for me but I will voluntarilycontribute to “Any Candidate Who Can Kick Donald Out of Office.”
