Hidden meaning

Above is a calling card. This person could play music for you at a party, or on a radio station. But there is further meaning in the letters on the card. If you are good at recognizing patterns, you should be able to decipher the hidden meaning. Hint: The person is female.

When my daughter was taking a mathematics class, her professor presented pattern recognition questions to the students, and asked for them to come up with some of their own. I had thought of this one years ago, and offered it to her. The prof was impressed, I hear. As he should have been; how many college professors get feedback from a genuine blogger?

Hhhorses, you already know this one, so keep it to yourself until all the other readers give up.

Update: Congratulations are in order for Pete S, who is the first to officially give up. So here’s another clue: The first name is June.

Update II: There are two other female names in here. Susan may be on to something.

Update III: The card contains 12 letters. Twelve. Hm-m-m.

Update IV: Susan is getting closer. She just MAY solve it!

I am proud have beaten all the other contestants by being the FIRST one to officially give up.

Congratulations! Being first is always good. So here’s another clue: Her first name is June.

Pete S. said...

Wow. I didn't realize just how far I was from ever figuring it out! How do people come up with these things?

Susan said...

Let me be the second to throw in the towel. And June is my favourite month too. Darn.

Tom Hurley said...

Susan, you have no idea how close you are.

Susan said...

No, I guess I don't. Australia still seems to be a long way from you.

Susan said...

Twelve. Twelve months in a year? A dozen?

Two other female names?

FM = Femme?

D - Dee?

I'm fishing. I really have no idea.

Pete S. said...

Susan, (if you're still interested) the first letter is the initial of the month June. The second letter (J) is for the month following June, and so on through the whole thing.

As I asked before, how do people come up with these things?!

Susan said...

Pete, thank you so much. I was still interested. I even said twelve months of the year MAY have something to do with it!!! My mind just wouldn;t take the final leap. Well, I'm retired now so why should it.

Yep, pretty clever.

Pat said...

Boy, talk about not having a clue as to what the heck this was all about!!!! I'm it. My brain, she is broke.

Susan said...

Ha ha! Aunt Pat, it's only Pete who really knew what was going on here!!! Oh and I guess Hilary and Tom too...I was blind to the answer really.

Tom Hurley said...

Pete—I came up with this when I noticed the word JASON in the middle of the list of months’ initials. From there it just put itself together. Simple. Minds.

Pete S. said...

Tom, your clue that her first name is "June" is what gave me the answer. Without that, I had no chance of figuring it out.
