    • Thanks, Jim! Glad you like the silly answers. Yeah, it wasn’t widely known about the duck. If word got out, people would think the white house was becoming a barnyard. haha. 🙂

  1. Great answers Barbara. although you were spot on in answering #5/9 (the coronation question).. Um. As an additional little funny thing (maybe it’s my eyes), those are all numbered with odd numbers… O_o

    • Thanks, Melanie! Glad you like these. So strange that I was just making stuff up and actually got that one right # 9. . The numbers of today is funny too, as it reads the same frontward and backward. I heard someone say it’s a palindrome. 🙂
