Gave up too soon and went for the hint. The hint made it easy, but it was a doozy. Great teaser. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Got only the author on my own; then the hints of course gave it all away, but it was fun. :)

I feel the most sorry for Lee King and Sue Mee, when they try to get their jobs!

I got Paige, picked Dino for Saures (sp?) , (Dino looks right) and picked Bea Major for the musician :) With the hint it was easy.

Posted by Babe10/26/13
Very clever and not too easy. I only got two and then had to look at the hint. I liked this one. :D

Like most was able to get Paige Turner without the hint, the others were easy knowing the first names. A great teaser as usual Marc
