6/13 A couple I knew but couldn’t yank out of my memory bog, and the rest I just didn’t know, dagnabbit.

Sara, I think you’re right about Gimletville. I’ve checked with a few resources. Consider your score 7/13. 🙂
Andrea, thanks, it’s kind of you to try to save me from myself.
I’ll take a 6.5. I did have to look it up. 😉
I only got 2 right.
