 nebraska  3.       What is this state?
 harperlee-190   4.       Do you recognize this author?

  1. Well, I tried to leave a comment but couldn’t get past the door. I got only one—the umlaut. Definitely not with it, these days. Actually, I got Nebraska, even upside down.

    : )


  2. Hi Clarice,

    that was v-e-r-r-y interesting. I think I had chartreuse right. I think it’s amazing that Harper Lee is wring a sequel to her book after 55 years and at age 88. maybe there’s still hope after all!!



  3. Well Clarice…the handbag I thought was called a bucket…now the bucket turns out to be a hat. The world is mad, mad I tell you.


  4. I got 4. The Brits wear hats that make the bucket look normal! 🙂


  5. I only got 2. Hmmmm.

    • Well it was really a silly and stilted quiz. Obviously, since those were the questions that popped into my head over the past week or so, that means I didn’t know any of them. (Okay, except the pocketbook one I found on Google.)
