16/20

I missed the Cornflakes rooster, Snap/Crackle/Pop, the Energizer Bunny, and Ronald McDonald.

That was fun, David -- and funny after your Ding Dong picture.  ;D

16/20 and that was mostly guesswork, as some of them are American brands I had no clue about.

Well, Fiona, you did better than I and I grew up with most of these brands.

15/20 here.  Some of the differences were pretty small.

Now, ask me the color of Lureen's spurs and I'll tell you!

I have decided it was luck,so I am going to buy a lottery ticket today,just in case the Gods are shining on me.

It's still a better score thanI got on the geography test.Put me in a car with a map and my husband behind the wheel.and the kids take cover.I am the one who took us to completely the wrong side of town for my daughters' gymnastics state final.I am telling you, no one would have wante to be me that day.
Fortunately I am so neurotic I leave about an hour before I need to,so we got there just.

Hi Fiona!

You were saying yesterday(?) that BetterMost triggers memories for you.  It works the same way for me.  In fact, just now, you've reminded me of a childhood memory!  Thank you for that!

When I was a kid - 6 or younger because we still lived in the Chicago area - I can remember Mom being peeved with me for telling someone that 'My Daddy is smart, but my Mommy is so dumb she can't even find the dance studio!'  Mom had gotten lost taking me to a ballet class.  I could be such a brat.  Of course with mature adult hindsight  ::), I had a bad case of hero-worship for my father.  Note who was bothering to take me places!  I wonder who I was talking to??  I'll have to see if Mom remembers!  :D

It does indeed trigger memories for me and most of them are good ones too.Now if I could just fine a way of finding my way back to a particular topic here,I really would have cracked it.
The number of times I sit and think,oh, I should just see what's happening on that thread,can I find it?can I heck.
I like the tangents that some threads go off on.I have always been mocked for my grasshopper mind,jumping here and there,so this place suits me fine,because nearly everyone does it.Just one more thing we seem to have in common.
