I didn't do too well, but at least none of the ones I got were guesses. I got #s 1, 2, 3, 8, and T or C. I should have gotten 6 and 7, but they just didn't pop into my head.

Hey, lt. I'm alittle late for the party today.
Thanks for saving me a seat.

Hole in the head, who did it first? I thought blood-letting or leaches would have been first. Boy, we're a gorry lot!

#s 1, 2, 6, 8 all ok.
Didn't know the T or C.

Thanks again.
Have a good night.
