34. Couldn't really make out. Had a horse on either side of a shield.

If that's the case it is not the Royal Coat of Arms because that is a sheild with a crown above and a lion on one side and unicorn on the other, both rearing up, sort of hanging onto the moto that encirlces the shield. This could just be an error of the artist, or an interpretation or maybe it's not cool to use the real coat of arms w/o permission. Don't want Big Fish caught up in an international incident now do we?

Poodlebear,

It was a unicorn on one side. Couldn't make out the other side.....so you're probably right.

Thanks Eleanor, now I have to play it all over again. Perhaps people should PM their answers to you so that we can't see the answers before we have found them for ourselves.

Thinking logically I know you wouldn't pretend to be Picman, it was just a knee jerk reaction on seeing that it wasn't Picman's usual profile that put the thought in my mind. See apology under "Picking Picman's Brain".

Here is the post where I'll be listing the answers, along with the person who first posted them.

(I tried to inter-post them on the original, but the post got too big!)

If it's still blank, then the correct answer hasn't been posted as of the last time I checked.

I'll add small posts to let you know when I've updated this.

1. 7217 - soymocha
2. Adirondac- 1_odd_1
3. 12 - mmaiden42
4. The fence - mmaiden42
5. 5 - mmaiden42
6. Portrait of a woman - mmaiden42
7. It is "blowing" in a breeze, but the window is closed. - 1_odd_1
8. They haven't dried out/still have wine in them. - soymocha
9. 4 - mmaiden42
10. Dormer window - incrediblyviolet
11. A woodstove - AnnBy
12. A sink - AnnBy
13. Madam Zoltak - mmaiden42
14. Toilet - mmaiden42
15. Elephant - mmaiden42, (although techincally there's also a frog & a ladybug - prpldva)
16. A grand piano - AnnBy
17. Okay, we'll take leaded glass - mullioned is the specific term, but close enough
18. 25 - prpldva
19. steering wheel in the truck - prpldva
20. screaming woman - prpldva
21. 5 - prpldva
22. 3 -AnnBy
23. cable car - prpldva
24. A toilet - AnnBy
25. one - prpldva
26. two - prpldva
27. grapevines - Annby
28. one - "This House is ours" scrawled - AnnBy
.......& mirror is on the inside of the medicine cabinet - prpldva
29. A person in a wedding dress - AnnBy
30. Bill and Eleanor - incredibly violet
31. A lit cigarette. - soymocha. (skull with a veil is a little odd, though not what I was looking for, AnnBy. I should have said anomaly... )
32. 82 - prpldva
33. 17 - incredibly violet & prpldva
34. This one was very tricky. AnnBy did a good description, with Poodlebear providing backup. It is actually a fuzzy rendition of the coat of arms for the House of Windsor.

Great job all you sleuths!

Is #10 the big freakin' hole in the wall that looks like a rat the size of a pony made it? I wondered about that last time thru as it looks like a wig head in there, which made me wonder if Rose was in disguise...

2 & 16 have been correctly answered previously (see above)

30 refers to two proper names - names of people.

See my edited first post on the thread. I had to replay RH to check on it (that's why this response is delayed...)

Sorry about the confusion.
