    I am honored, to be listed among those having a “Clod nickname.” Bootsie, or others are welcome to correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it was she who gave me my nickname all those decades ago. Thoughts?
    Living with a long “all-one-word” name, I was tickled to be “apostrophed.”
    Again, as always, thanks for the great memory and quiz. You are my Friday fun!
    Have a wondeerful weekend, all.

    I am stuck with answers for some of these, and my husband is also curious. What is the time-frame for these kids…I left mid 1960.
    Will you print answers or do we keep guessing?

    • LOL – S’Ellen – Hmm?! Time frame – Hmm … well … from the time the first Clod set foot on Saigon soil until the last one was exiled to another country – LOL. I’d say, for the most part, the time period from late 1958 through mid-1961 would be a *best guess-imate* – LOL.

      Print answers!?! Ohhh come on, S’Ellen, youuuuuu an official *Clod-ette* asking for a *cheat sheet* … my, my, my … tisk, tisk …… keep guessing – he he he – 😉

      PS: Psst … ask Mike
