Ahh, NCor, know that it hurts me more than it does you, particularly when I read of your thwarted scramble to come aboard.
And along with that, you had to endure your hero getting the Buffalo Shuffle.

1..VAUC & NCor slot the kids into The Danny Thomas Show, Make Room for Daddy. Me, I only had eyes for
Sherry Jackson.

2..Ed4 is on target with the first Henry. Hey, remember this? Henry...Henry ______." "Coming, Mother."

3..Arghh, huskyb, you are as close as you can be, and still be in error.

4..A fine reply is "200", and NCor made it.

5..And he's got "cats", also.

6..So many revelations about your tastes that I hope no one considers it TMI.
The sale figures indicate pumpkin.

7..VTC knows we talk of El Toro. And that NCor just can't be serious. (cute, though)

8..Pinot cites the Camry. VAUC, no fair sneaking in trucks where they don't belong.

9..You're on the right track, NCor. as that led her to be the 1st female, black millionaire (or so it
is believed).

10..Rbny does well with opera. Haensel und Gretal (If anyone can put an Umlaut atop the boy's "a",
I can drop the first "e".

11..Idaho is at 23%, good for 2nd place. NCor's got it.

12..You associate it with Spencer Tracy.

13..I wonder if VAUC remembers Miss Venezuela's reaction to her award.

And we still don't know where geordi is.

13. I do not remember Miss Venezuela's rection for Venezuela was a wild guess.

Actually they are one and the same. Her husband convinced her to use Madam C. J. Walker since it sounded classier. He would think that since his name was C. J. Walker!

Sorry I'm late.

Oh, and 'Henry, Henry Aldrich!' /Coming Mother.'

Huskyb didn't return. He has listed the Moody Blues "To our Children's...", and he is correct that it is a Moody Blues album. But the right one is "On the Threshold of a Dream".
In and around churches, restaurant, ruins and markets, geordi completes this section with Nuremberg and Aldrich.
