It appears that there are two Skyway Bridges in South Hillsborough County.  One of the bridges you can actually drive over and the other one you drive by.  It’s the driving by one located at the corner of Highway 41 and State Road 674 that was the subject of last week’s photo.  That beautiful mural was painted by “Dallas” (such a good job some folks thought it was the real thing) and shares the building with Total Automotive Services.  If you find yourself driving by and in need of automotive help, stop in and let Julio and Paul take care of your car while you check out the great mural.  This week we are giving credit for all Skyway guesses real or painted (those of you who were fooled know who you are).  First out of the toll booth we have Claudia Alvarez-Lang (my money is on the shark, longhorns can’t swim), Teresa Cunneen, Juanita Sehorne (I’m just guessing, but I would say the buzzard is no longer with us), Martha Potter, Bill Galbreath (it’s all part of the job), Wayne Stokes (are you sure you don’t compare notes with Cheryl?), Dan Bergschneider (I will expect a call every week), Anne Perkins (you will have to get back into the swing of things, welcome back), Fred Schmidt, Harold Almand (you are getting pretty good at this, thanks for playing) and Ryan Almand (ditto for you).  The entire NAPA crew of Sam, Juan, and Austin knows where the mural is (duh).  A special sorry to Cheryl Russell for leaving her out of the Sharks from two weeks ago and well done for this week. Jerry Alexander also got the Sharks as well as the mural (I rob my piggy bank to pay tolls, poor piggy).  Speaking of Sharks, we have several after deadline guesses.  Swimming to the top are Betina Simon (are you and your daughter looking for a glass slipper?), Mary LaFollette (is that where you go when you have been bad?), Melissa Carter and Eileen Coderre.  This week we are looking for the cross roads, and if anybody can tell me what this building is used for, there will be extra credit for you.  If I were traveling on sixty plus six divided by three multiplied by four minus forty seven and turned east on the lane with the vista of the large creek, where in South Hillsborough would I be?  Send your guess to 210 Woodland Estates Avenue S.W., Ruskin, FL 33570 or email
