    I got 18. How sad is that?

    I would rather the Blueberry Muffin instead of the hill. Pleeeez.

      18 is a GOOD store, Mary! That’s what I scored, too.

  2. Cactus Annie / Dec 12 2011 11:15 am

    Fun stuff! I scored 18. Missed the Joe Namath one and the Wonder Bread. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Old Silly 😉

    • theoldsilly / Dec 12 2011 11:17 am

      Girl after my own heart, Cactus! I missed the same 2, teheee.

  3. John Standish / Dec 12 2011 11:16 am

    I scored 17. Man, this test made me feel OOOOoooold, lol!

  4. Arlee Bird / Dec 12 2011 11:41 am

    That was way too easy, Marv. I got a big 20 and whipped through them. C’mon give me some difficult questions— or maybe no multiple choice! Now that would be a test.
