Rainy Monday Trivia

Okay, time for a bit of trivia again. It’s pouring down rain here today and if you have “weather” going on where you are you might appreciate this brief distraction. I have many trivia books and I’m pulling these at random. I don’t want you to think I’m some kind of brilliant oracle who just knows this stuff. Oh? There was no danger of that? Okay, then. Here we go.

Did you know –

1.    This sport bans lefties.
2.    True or false – Any month that starts on a Sunday will have a Friday the 13th.
3.    What presidential daughter had a pony named Macaroni?
4.    If you just made a fillip, what did you do?
5.    Where is the Little League World Series played?

  2. Alright, you know I can't resist your trivia posts. I got numbers 2 and 3 correct. As for your conundrum question, I guessed "kindness." "Your word" makes more sense.

    Hope you're doing well, my friend! Thanks for the trivia.

  3. Ha! Janette, I thought you'd chime in. I'm snapping my fingers and hoping you are well, too.
