4/5 with 2*. I've heard of Archie Bunker so said Archie Bunker's Place.

Even though I watched All in the Family from the start, I couldn't get Archie Bunker's Place out of my mind until the last second.

Canada also cheated you out of winning this week. So there's that, too.

<shakes fist>

Damn you, Canada!

Much love to our Canadian posters. I'm not a complete monster. ;-)

Hey @Sharpie66, don't forget to report in! It's been two-weeks and Mom gets worried about her players when they disappear. *cough @Toothbrush cough*

Meanwhile, the co-winners of Week 30 have been named. TA DAH! Because I like patterns and sequences (and sequins, but I digress), @illdoc and @suebee12 are this week's co-winners with their matching reflective scores of four straight 3s. It's like you guys are copying off of each other's papers. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Congratulations to you both! Long may you rock the contest.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! And I promise I didn't look at @illdoc's answers!

It looks more like zoey1996 & I are collaborating--overall, we have the same number of * and nearly identical scores (she has one more right than me)!
