That's how I feel about Sinclair and Texaco on Q4. I thought Sinclair was an old-timey gas station, but apparently it's just out in the western US. I'm in the east, so....

Also surprised that Susan B. Anthony didn't get more love on Q2, but maybe she was an obvious sheep, turning her into a non-sheep.

I'm near St. Louis, so Saarinen was the obvious choice for me (I misremembered his first name as Esa, so I'm glad I didn't include that at least!). And my young son is a huge dinosaur fan, so Sinclair was another obvious choice. Oh well, I'm on my way from "first-to-worst"!

Pleasantly surprised to finish so high after the Saarinen / Sinclair sheep set sent me sliding towards the cellar and I found more wool on Q6.

Thanks for hosting!

I was worried for a bit that Lech Walesa was going to sheep and I was gonna blow it at the end, but ya'll know so many more people of Polish heritage than I do, and it all evened out. Either way, I'll take a clean game with no sheep and 3 singletons.

Thank you very much for hosting Peachbox, this was fun as always.

Thanks for the TD. What an awful game for me. I am sticking with my assertion that Nat King Cole first recorded it (twice, it turns out) in 1946, and that record is in the hall.of of Fame. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Christmas_Song

I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
