Mystery couple

I have two questions for you:

Who are they? And why did I put them on my blog?

No fair cheating by using the intricacies of modern technology to find out. Either you know the answer or you don’t.

The person with the best answer will receive a year’s supply free.

A year’s supply of what is for me to know and for you to find out.

I will also be the sole determiner of how much constitutes a year’s supply.

Consider yourself warned.

On your mark, get set, go.


  1. Vernon and Irene Castle?

    Arthur Murray and wife?

  2. Mary Z: Definitely one of those. But why?

    Arthur Murray's wife was named Katherine, by the way.

  3. Ah, you and Mrs. RWP look so utterly charming, gliding and swaying together as cheek to cheek you dance to the music in your hearts on your recent anniversary. My but you make a lovely couple! No wonder you've been married all these years - cemented together by such a great love....
    (You said 'the best answer'...not necessarily the 'correct' answer, yes?)

  4. Hiltopphomesteader, you are definitely a contender....

  5. I know virtually nothing about dancing but I would say that that is a picture of Vernon and Irene Castle. My suggestion as to why they are in your blog is because you and your lady Ellie have decided to change your names to Vernon and Irene. Vernon Brague has a sophisticated ring to it - unlike the common sound of "Bob" Brague. Janitor? Trucker? Once renamed you will waltz through the streets of Canton like Ginger and Fred (another unsophisticated name).

  6. Yorkshire Pudding,Vernon and Irene Brague doesn't carry near the sophistication of, say, Nigel and Penelope Brague or even Clive and Pamela Brague. But as one should be grateful for what one has been given, we have no plans to change our names.

  7. The chap looks like David Niven, but Tin Eye tells me it is indeed Vernon and Irene Castle.

  8. Shooting Parrots, you are indeed correct. My better instincts tell me I probably shouldn't be asking you this, but who or what is Tin Eye?
