UPDATE 6/30: Winners Who Took It All ~ Nat, Red, Yellow Rose, Kimba, and honorable mention goes to Tommy. And to answer the question, why 1981? I was in Australia as a foreign exchange student that year. Everything in '81 is marked indelibly in my mind. Case in point, "Do you know what store Ronald Reagan shops at? Target!" (Get it? Get it?) At any rate, thanks for stopping. More memories and another contest (from the 60s, hint hint) next Thursday. lgp
CONTEST 6/29: Points to the one who gets the most correct. No cheating or googling.
