Saturday Snapshots #34 - The Answers

Knowing Benny yesterday - knowing Frida today - AHA!

Sadly I couldn't find pictures of either Björn or Agnetha holding a camera, but feel free to send them my way if you have them.

Anyway, here's the answers from The Day Before You Came to see what they were... i.e. the day before today... i.e. yesterday. Sorry. I'm suffering a serious dose of Partridge this morning. I got a little worried yesterday morning because by 10am it looked like nobody had made any guesses... which led me to believe that either I'd made this week's SS way too hard... or you were all getting sick of it (or me). Then I realised that the guesses were in the comments - blogger just appears to have stopped sending comments to me. No idea why that is (probably some GDPR nonsense), but I hope they fix it soon.

Marks were spread between loads of people this week - by my calculations, Rigid Digit won with 3 1/2, narrowly beating Lynchie's 3. I'm giving Martin and C 1 1/2 marks each for their efforts on The Wannadies clue (Alyson gets a bonus "positivity" mark for deciphering the "had enough" clue as "satisfied" rather than "wannadie"). The Swede mopped up the rest with a respectable 2 1/2 - well done for getting Edward Ball!

So congratulations to RD: The Winner Takes It All!
