OK, ctown28 mentioned this in one of my other threads, about wondering whose the oldest Sleuth. Now, it's got my curosity aroused as to whose the oldest Sleuth that joined this game, and also the oldest playing todate? If there's already a thread addressing this, I humbly apologize.

I'm still a little Sleuth baby! I think I'm 59 days old. :-)

BTW: "Go Granny, go Granny, go Granny, GO!" Is from the song "Little Old Lady From Pasadena". She drives like a speed demon, thus implying your reference, DaRu. :-)

Hush little baby, don't say a word. Crunchy's gonna teach you about the music you heard. And if that music don't sound good, Crunchy's gonna swab your granny's gums with vodka and implicate her in his next speeding ticket.

Absolut perjury.

Anyways - before Jan and Dean penned that incestuous lyric, single-handedly causing all and any parents of children born between the years 1960 and 1989 to search their parents bedside drinking glass (and, where applicable, dentures) for fledgling pubic hairs, there was Chuck Berry and a little song called Johnny B. Goode.

Go Johnny go!

Kevin, I love this song and I relate to it in real life. When I drive I have a tendency to have a lead foot, so Texan rarely lets me drive, ha! However, I’ve been driving since age 16, and I’ve never had a speeding ticket, but I have had a few close calls. Texan doesn’t have such a clean slate. Due to his wild and crazy days while growing up his driver’s license were suspended. Since married life he’s slowed down, and I mean….way down. Now I beg him to at least go the speeding limit, ha!

*DaRu, runs over and knocks on wood* OK, I’m not really superstitious, but I heard it helps, ha!

Hey, crunchpatty, those songs really brings back memories, and if I keep referring to them, people will figure out my age. But, then I was just a baby, or was I even born yet? Sorry, I think I’m beginning to feel the affects of that disease called: “Alzheimer’s.”

PS: Oh, and then there was “Wooly Bully.” But then these songs were before my time….ha!

Quite far too long have I been playing this game. I believe we do indeed need to charge Ben with possession of an illegal substance with the intent to sell. How else then could he have kept us all around this long?

Ah, lilangel, thanks for the correct title “Wolly Bully.” There are several great songs, such as “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini,” that was catchy and is still a hit today, and there’s an ad on TV about losing weight that plays this song. By the way, no amount of money could pay me to wear one in public…LOL.

On a serious note, the top ten songs in 1960 were the following:
(1) The Twist-Chubby Checker, (and I love to do the twist), (2) Beyond the Sea-Bobby Darin, (3) Are you Lonesome Tonight-Elvis Presley, (4) Wild One-Bobby Rydell, (5) Volare-Bobby Rydell, (6) I’m sorry-Brenda Lee, (7) Money (That’s what I want)-Barrett Strong, (8) This Magic Moment-the Drifters, (9) It’s Now or Never-Elvis Presley, and(10) Wonderful World-Sam Cooke.

My favorite artist and dream lover was “Elvis Presley”…Yeah! I actually kissed him….that’s right….I did; but………unfortunately…… in a dream…ha! Oh, and I married Elvis, which was none other than, Texan, ha!. I’ve always told him, “You’re my Elvis,” and sometimes I think he thinks he is, ha! Oh my goodness……it’s true……”the King is alive and well in Texas”….LOL! OK, back to a little history on the real deal, Elvis, left the army and reentered the music scene in 1960, and soon released his first single: “O Sole Mio, (It’s Now or Never).” Then how could a girl forget, “Are you Lonesome Tonight,” which my Elvis sings to me, and it makes me cry, but not for joy....ha! Just kidding. Then there was: “There is A Summer Place,” which my first boyfriend and I use to play together on the piano. That is until he became my nightmare. Now you are probably wondering, “How old were you you when you started dating?” I was young, but very mature for my age..LOL.

Ah, jojo, it’s good you dropped by and added your remarks. Back when I first joined Sleuth, I played all night. The next day I was so numb I feel my legs, get up out of my chair or do anything. Talk about addiction, or drugs, you would have thought I was on something….LOL. I think that is when Texan started singing, “Are you Lonely Tonight.” Poor baby, guess he was feeling mighty lonely

Here is a quick Trivia during 1960’s

1) Best Picture Oscar Winner
2) Grammy for Best New Artist
3) Grammy Record of the Year

I know I’ve rambled on and on, and you’re probably wondering will I ever shut up?” Good news, I’m only making a correction to my last remark above, as follows, to-wit: “the next day I was so numb that I couldn’t feel my legs, get up out of my chair, or do anything. Yep, there were times I wished I had something to take…LOL! It was well worth every hour spent though

Ah, the good ole' days when I used to stay up until midnight server time, waiting for the next day's cases. I'd then do them all right then and there. And then I'd have none in the morning. :( So I'd have to wait up until midnight again. :D

Oh, how I also miss the old sidebar... ACH! or the few days when I had no sidebar at all.
