Christie -- did I tell you how much I admire your quilting skills? Your design sense and use of color are wonderful.

I have several quilts made by both my grandmothers, and by two of my great-grands. Also one by my ex's grandmother. Pieced and applique. They are used on a limited basis, but most definitely not just folded away and forgotten. I've made three, myself -- one cross-stitch, and two pieced. I really admire the time and effort you put into your art.


Ditto. My sis in law is a wonderful quilter. I have three of hers, two she made for the boys I've appropriated until I think they'll take care of them.


Thanks Beebs!

Good thinking on the keeping the quilts safe part!

Q3 - Q3 - SPIRIT OF INNOVATION

B - A Canadian inventor, marketing with the aid of New York Giant assistant coach Jim Trimble , changed the football field instantly and permanently
in 1967 with this item, said to resemble a slingshot, or a tuning fork.

G - This Canadian group, in the 1950's, sang the instant-nostalgia song "Moments to Remember". (Because of the inventor mentioned in"B", one of the moments is no longer possible.)

All is well. He had to tell me about his first "multiple victim extraction" after a head-on crash. He had to squeeze through an impossibly small opening to reach one person, but he did it. They got everyone to the hospital alive.


Great work, kiddo!

Car extractions are amazing. The Jaws of Life ... tools that didn't exist when we were born.

This is amazing. And I really didn't use the ass/head extraction for myself to reference this. Send him all sorts of kudos and kisses for what he does.

The Four . . .Lads?

The moment we can no longer remember has to be "the day we tore the goalposts down," which means that I'm wrong on the first part.[/spoiler]

Yeah. That's my excuse, too. Can I tag along with you? Except I had no idea on the singing group, so. I'm going to go eat angleworms.

It is indeed the Y-shaped or tuning fork or slingshot goalpost.

Immediately everyone realized it was better, and changed. For academia type places, also, no drunken louts hurting themselves tearing goalposts down.

Four Lads.

From the choir of st. mike's to the top of the charts.

Puts alot of stuff into perspective.

Awesome Judy!

How proud you should be! How lucky for his area to have him on duty, along with his co-workers.

Q4 - Q4 - THE MOMENT OF TRUTH HAS FINALLY COME

Though not the one on prime time...

B - "The Moment of truth has finally come" is part of the patter in one of my favorite radio summer songs of all time, from 1966,
"Cool Jerk". What is the name of the group which performed "Cool Jerk"?

(Group name is related to something in the Starter).

G - The driving bass line is played by one of those 88-key pianos.
(Gimme a little bass, with those 88's..)

How many black keys, how many white keys?

[spoiler]While I can hear the song in my head I can't see the group. Perhaps Apollo and the Slurpees. You remember them.

I play the piano. I couldn't tell you how many keys. 55 and 33. This is pathetic.[/spoiler]

SC - there was a blurb in the Tulsa World today about the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History. I'd be up for a visit during the Great Gridiron Getaway.

It's a wonderful museum, and some new stuff is there I haven't seen. I'm all for it.

What was MsKing gonna eat?

I'm gonna go eat Triscuits that have been re-frozen about 12 times now. I'll bet they're crispy and delicious.

The "dinovator" looked really cool. Looking apatosaurus in the eye -- what a blast!
