Family activity time!
Your yard has been raked and re-raked several times; you’re now watching re-runs of re-runs and your new hobby is boredom, so what’s a guy or gal to do? Well, my friends, the staff at “Take A Mulligan” is challenging you and your family to a contest or quiz or something to that effect. This quiz has 14 questions and a bonus question a the end. Each correct answer garnishes you one “super-duper” point. So after supper tonight, get the family together, give yourselves exactly one hour, (I’ll be watching), and answer as many questions as you can. Good (har, har) luck!!
