Yikes, I only got 7 right and one of those was "a silver something" so does that make it only 6.5?! But I'm not American so I don't know things like who said what on the Ed Sullivan show and stuff like that (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!). Anyhoo, I learned something coz I never knew "American Pie" was a tribute to Buddy Holly (and I'm old enough to remember him when he was still alive, lol!) :) xxx

My Meowm missed 5 and only knew one other name for the VW. She says she probably knew some of the ones she missed at one time, but has forgotten them.....

our mommy didn't know 2. she must be ANCIENT. Daddy akshually MEETED Red Skelton - his daddy was a stage hand and knowed Mr Skelton (AND the 3 stooges). Daddy's Daddy was 57 when daddy was borned, so our daddy is ancient but not REAL ancient.

Very nice. We didn't know any of the answers, but Jan knew them. It just took her for-e-v-e-r to pull them out of her file cabinet of a brain.
