BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together. Leave your answer in the comment section. I’ll approve responses later in the day to give people a chance to respond without seeing any spoilers.

This week’s riddle comes from Maria Shriver. Who knew she also did a Friday brain teaser? I didn’t get the answer but I’m confident you can.

Vintage gay

Jess Collins (viaual artist) and Robert Duncan (poet) are depicted above in a photo taken at some point in 1958 or 1959 in Marin County at Stinson Beach in northern California. Jess was a member of the 1950s San Francisco art scene and met poet Robert Duncan in 1950. They remained together until Duncan’s death in 1988.

Earlier this summer, the blog ultrawolveunderthefullmoon had a nice post that introduced me to the couple, which you can read here.

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at bosguymail@gmail.com.

Monday morning mancandy

Say good morning to Daniel Ashton Johnson. The former wrestler turned model about a decade ago makes for an ideal Monday morning mancandy post, don’t you agree?

Saturday morning coffee

Anyone else more than a little concerned about this guy burning his bits if the coffee in that mug is still hot?

This week’s brain teaser:  You’re a bus driver on a fall leaf tour. At the first stop, 4 people get on. At the second stop, 8 people get on, at the third stop 2 people get off and, at the fourth stop everyone got off.

The question is what color are the bus driver’s eyes?
