18 !
I missed
"Good Night David"
"Bob Dylan advised us never to trust anyone..." Never was a fan of Dylan cuz he couldn't sing. I did become a fan when he was in the Traveling Wilbury's.

Funny, we were just talking about the QB that did a panty hose commercial and my son and friends had no idea :D :o

16...Not because I'm not old enough though. It's the memory thing!!!:rolleyes:

02-08-2010, 02:19 PM
OK, clearly I win the Geezer Award for the day, cuz I got all 20 right!!! :o :eek: :p (And it also shows how much time I spent in front of the TV, which was A LOT!!!!!!!)


02-08-2010, 02:29 PM
WOW Marianne!! It's plain to see you don't have that "memory thing" going on! Very impressive!!

WOW Marianne!! It's plain to see you don't have that "memory thing" going on! Very impressive!!
Thanks, Shelba! Except I'm afraid that one of the reasons why I can't remember any really important stuff is because my head is filled with all this old crap...:p :p :p

02-08-2010, 04:07 PM
Congrats, Marianne. You are a better woman than I. I can't remember important stuff or old crap so take a bow. My eyesight ain't what it used to be either but that's not such a bad thing since I look better in the mirror these days. Now if only everybody else had bad eyesight too, I'd be looking mighty fine. :D If you can relate to the attachments below, you are no longer middle aged.

WOOHOO! Marianne! 20/20! What a memory....or something....:p

Oh that mailbox thing is hilarious! The chart I would have to redo to reflect much more eating and much less sleeping tho....probably would be a good idea to enlarge the portion of looking for what I just had, too. :D:D


02-08-2010, 06:59 PM
This is TOO funny! I'm so glad I'm not alone...:p

Congrats Marianne, 20/20- ! I only got 15, but I think that comes down to a mis-spent youth of watching too much TV! (Even tho some of the folks at work would be hard pressed to answer some of these :))
Thanks Glynda

I only got 14 - but I think that comes from growing up in the wrong place, not the wrong time. I didn't know the TV ones but got 100% of the music ones so my youth was pretty much as misspent as anyone else's.

Anyway, my longterm memory is better than my sh.......

What was I talking about?????:p


02-09-2010, 05:20 AM
I scored 18 - (did not get 3 or 15).

Thanks Glynda - great fun.
