The day at the bridge table is over, so I can attend to all you longing posters.

1..Fairview gives us an amusing diatribe that if you focus real hard, you can tell he's talking about GOLF. NCor too.

2..Ed4 leads a quartet with the Statue of Liberty inscription.

3..NCor types Hertz. NCor is right.

4..Topsy Turvy

5..Pinot is ahead of a pack of 4 celebrating the end of primogeniture.

6..Paris will suffice. Ed4 & geordi.

7..Rbny, I am not responsible for what your brain does with a song. That's my story and I'm sticking
to it. Oh yes, Terif answered the question with Jubilation T. Cornpone.

8..A Tell-Tale one, all right. Terif is 1st of 4.

9..Geordi knows Catacombs.

10..Appalachian...Meyers, NCor & Ed4.

11..Beating the bejesus out of a piece of meat--crown & NCor.

12..I award this to Fairview, just because it's South America.

13..Rbny & NCor want us to know it is Mitsubishi.

The site insists on brevity, so there will be a part 2 soon.

Hi...you knew I'd be back, didn't you?

14..Anonymous is the title; geordi & meyers & sarals are our movie guides.

15..Photovotaic is the term, known by ed4 and 2 mates.

16..OK, the hint was "the opposite of urban vermin" You come up with "pigeon". How can pigeon be applied to the human body? Through the phrase "pigeon-toed" and its opposite is "pronated". We're done here.

17.."The Tay, the Tay..When will I see her there.." No, that's plumb wrong. Anyway geordi's a'swimmin' away.

18..Federalist Papers say 5, with meyers bringing up the rear.

19..VAUC (though his spelling gave me a headache) is most accurate with Tajik, Turkmen & Uzbek.

20..See rbny; NCor ok too.

21..Robotic surgery, rightly explains Fair.

22..VAUC takes a stab and gets real close--1512.

23..A Farewell to Arms--ed4, fair & geordi.

24..Geordi specifies North Carolina.

25..Pap49 is just under the wire (get it?) with "cuts" or wounds.

Only a pasta meal tonight will compensate for all you put me through.:rolleyes:

OK, I'm curious! How have the rules of golf not changed in 267 years. In the 20s, the rules were changed to allow you to pick up and mark your ball on the green. Prior to that, if your ball was on the green in the way of your partner's ball, he had to chip over your ball while still on the green. It was called a stymie. In the 90s, the procedure by which you took a drop was changed from over your shoulder to arm straight out. Rules relating to equipment are changed all the time.
