Senior Scribes...
Baby Boomer Test 
November 11, 2011 

(Have a paper and pencil handy to record your answers... Your mind isn’t as sharp as it once was!) 

So they say! The individual who sent it to me got 16 out of the 20. The note below indicates the average is 12. I guess I’m either weird, a TV junkie in my youth or really old. I got all 20… Bob Robinson, editor and Senior Scribe. 

This is NOT a pushover test. It’s a Baby Boomer era test! There are 20 questions. Average score is 12.
