  • I should have got those. Trouble is if you get a fixed idea into your brain it's difficult to think differently.
    Anyway, thanks for all the effort you put in to challenge us in these strange times, Hazel. Pity more people didn't join in.

  • I ended up with 8 out of the 15. :-(
    A few others I should (could) have got, and a few I would never have got.!!
    Thanks for posting, Hazel, got the wheels turning. :-)

  • I finally found my answers on the back of an envelope that had something else put on the other side & was tucked over by the radio. I got 9 right & 2 wrong answers.
    N°8 : Service with a smile
    N°12 : Dog days
    Thanks again Hazy.

    Best wishes

  • well done Hazel, that's a good total considering some of the catchphrases could have been interpreted with other suitable solutions as you mentioned.    I thank the three of you for joining in the quiz,
