The only one I missed was #16. Probably because my dad smoked cigars and pipes. He didn't care for cigarettes.

Coffee on the patio sounds good. Made an apple crisp if anyone is interested.

Hey Judy...
Apple crisp always sounds good to me, especially with coffee!
Thanks for stopping in today!

I only missed 1 & 16, maybe because I'm only 56, but some of the ones I got right are thanks to my Mom singing the jingles when I was a kid.

Chickenmom said...

Uh-oh - I got 'em all..... I'll bring the ice cream for the apple crisp!

linda m said...

Ian H said...

Piece of cake! I need a bigger challenge like "Where did I put my car keys"

Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigs? I buy my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and I'm saving over 50% from cigs.
