No problem gb, no need to look it up, I don't remember what I guessed either. And it was a very random wild guess. If I happen to recognize a right answer as one that I guessed I'll do a happy dance but I doubt that will be the case for these
I have the version with Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. Maybe I should rewatch it to see where exactly they lived in Kansas
Trying to find that online but no luck yet... Have to shake of the witch of monthly joy first, she's giving me a headache
Haha Leah, we where posting at the same time. I had that with one of the last songs on here from Elvis I think, I saw the blackbirds in the guarden and thought I found another line, but that's from yet another song
I agree, GB, Soul, Freida. Personay, Idunno sounds perfecto to me. I know the capital of
Kentucky because of an old childhood riddle.
Is the capital of Kentucky pronounced Looey-ville or Lewis-ville?
Neither. It's pronounced Frankfort.
As for Kansas, it might be Kansas City. I think there is also a Kansas City in Missouri
which adds to the confusion.
The Minnesota capitol building was in the news last night. I haven't read the article yet.
I remember in 6th grade we studied Minnesota history. Then we took a bus ride
about 135 miles to St. Paul and toured the capitol building. Like many such buildings
it has a magnificent dome.
As is often the case, history is just around the corner. The last battle in Minnesota
between the army and the Indians was fought when my grandparents were alive.
Let's see. Don't think we did Wyoming yet. I remember that from the old wooden
map. It's an Indian word, and none of us knew how to pronounce it. Utah?
Missouri? Louisiana? The last one is easy to remember; it sticks in the mind.
Yup, GB. Baton Rouge is red stick. Kinda sticks in your mind. As for those "M" states, the
abbreviations sound like a singer practicing vowels. "Me, Ma, Moo etc."
Gordon and I took a bus tour of New England about 25 years ago. When I lived in Las
Vegas, Reno was the smallest capital city with a population of about 5,000. Now I see
it is up to over 200,000. Well, it's been 45 years. I read Montpelier, Vermont, is now the
The capital of Kansas is not Smallville, Soul. But if it were, it would be the smallest. Just
checked. GB is right; it's Topeka. Well, we can remember the song Judy Garland
sang. "The Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe." Academy Award winning song.
Haha, Rock, that was a joke it being Smallville, I don't know if smallville even exists, when looking for toto in Kansas I found Smallville. It's the probably fictional place where Superman lives as the Kent family when he was undercover so to speak. Garlands song doesn't ring a bell to me but I had the same thought when seeing the M States about the singer vowels
I learned a song as a kid here that you can sing with every letter of the alphabet combined with a vowel. Goes like this:
B with an A, Ba
B wih an E, Be
B with an I, BI
Ba Be Bi
B with an O, Bo
Ba Be Bi Bo
B with an U, Bu
Ba Be Bi Bo Bu
B can be replaced by any letter that isn't a vowel, it is a song I enjoyed a lot singing as a kid with all kinds of different letters. Going faster and faster. It's a tongue twister. I found one video on youtube but it's a kids class so won't post it here, might be meant as personal. But if you want to look it up look for 'B met de A Ba'
GB, just checked the capital of Nevada. Wikipedia says Carson City. I lived in Nevada!
I was sure it was Reno! Wow! My Alz is even worse than I thought.
Maybe I was thinking of Johnny Carson. Wasn't he the smallest of the Tonight show hosts?
I read Carson City was named after Kit Carson. Maybe he was the smallest of the mountain
I think I'll go lie down for a while. I need a rest anyway. Just spent 10 minutes sweeping
out the garage.
Soul, yes, I know Smallville was a joke. Superman was the smallest of the super heroes.
Oh yeah, I believe the capital of Montana is Wyoming. Reminds me of an old
cartoon I saw half a century ago. Elegant and rather corpulent lady to a native
of Utah. "Back in Boston we pronounce it Idaho." Or maybe it was the other
Freida, Diane, I thought the capital of Maryland was Annapolis, but now I'm not sure of anything.
I think you're right about Annapolis, Maryland, Rock. On the spelling of Augusta, Maine. When I looked at that after I typed Agusta, I kept thinking something looked off but couldn't figure out what it was! lol
