Reread your original post answer where you say "But it is not the capital."

1. On His Rear End
2. The Coast Guard academy (1976)
3. 1963 / 1989--All I knew was it was built in the '60s and torn down in the '80s.
4. 25 cents
5. "Calamity Jane"--I got this right, but I thought her name was Martha Jane Canary? I figured one of them was her married name?
6. Ball-and-Socket
, Hinge, and Saddle Joints
7. Australia
8. Jerry Quarry, whom he knocked out
TRUTH !--Yeah, I was thinking it was Casablanca, and I knew better!

Sorry, I misread. Please excuse me. I not only misread it, I misread it every time (unless you corrected it)? Hmmmm.

I don't have the ability to change it, and even if I could, I'd never allow you to think you were wrong when you weren't

We all do it Sally. I know that one reason writers have other people proofread what they have written is that when we write something we tend to read it the way we meant it to be. I think the same is true when we think we see something a certain way. Then again, I have a weird thing about words lot looking right sometimes, even when I know they are. I was shopping for a birthday card for my daughter years ago, and I could have sworn that there wasn't a single card at that Hallmark store that spelled "daughter" correctly! I knew they were correct, but that day they just didn't look right and I was not able to buy one! When I went back another day they were all correct.
