Kinda funny, but I'm turning 29 in five days and I think I got 17 or 18 right, give or take one or two to the negative Wink. I guess that either makes me older then dirt, or I really listened to all those stories mom, dad, grandpa and grandma told all those years ago...

Ahhh what memories.

God Bless,

I failed the test! I don't know whether to rejoice because I'm not as old as I think I am or lament my loss of memory.
