Hints:
# 2 was not Johnny Carson.

# 8 May have been Dizzie Gillespie. So, that will not count-though the survey had someone else listed.

#10 Is super tough-I said Clyde Caddledhopper-but I was wrong. Not Good Luck-but that was a good guess.

#11 While Bra's and Flags were burned there was something else as well.

Like I said-I grew up through it all and missed 3 1/2 answers-it is hard. Hope the hints help.

Actually, wait I feel dumb. Sorry, it was not Dizzy, it was Louis Armstrong. That's what I get for reading another poster's answers. Ended up with Dizzy on the brain.

If it's not Good Luck then it's God Bless.

Er, Shirts?

Not bad considering when I was born.

Hi hardwood624;
You have saved me the trouble of posting the correct answers. You got it 100% correct-though I still consider #8 as potential for other correct answers. #7 is Chocolate-Jingle would not sound right if it were cookies. I had missed #'s 8, 12 (said Bug and Volts Wagon-to me Beattles was the group-not the car) and 13-(said Elivs-Buddy Holly was before my time-but I think Elivs was the "jester stole his thorney crown" in the song.
You may have confused my location with CAsunshine-who has moved to the North. Prior to that we met at the Denny's-off the 5 at Roxford.
And we began bellydance lessons together-she attended twice before moving. I am still at it.

Oh I nearly forgot-there is another Denny's off the 210 at Hubbard Street exit. On one occassion I was supposed to meet someone at the Denny's-and I went to one and he went to the other! LOL I have no cell phone-so he could not contact me. Fortunately, he stayed put and I figured it out, and went to him.
