THE HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW WANDER? CONTEST

Prizes: A piece of jewelry of your choosing (necklace, bracelet, earrings, ring) custom designed by me. Certain restrictions apply: If it's a ring or earrings, no 14 kt gold. It's cheaper now but I can't afford to give it away. No diamonds for the same reason. I do use gold beads in my other designs though so it's permissable in necklaces or bracelets. Also, certain stones may at the time of winning be unattainable so allow for substitutions.

Rules:

1. Anyone on LJ is eligible
2. Most, if not all the information to answer these quastions can be found by looking through my journal entries but could also have been from comments I've left to people.
3. Contest will end at approximately 6 pm central standard time Tuesday April 2, 2002.
4. Prize will be awarded to first person with all answers correct.
5. If no one gets them all correct, prize will be awarded to first person with most answers correct.
6. In the event of a tie, prize will be awarded to multiple winners.
7. In the event of a disputed answer, my decision will be final.
8. Answers must be provided by leaving a comment to this post.

OK, here are the questions:

One of them in particular I told you about while I was driving you back to China Grove one night so you should at least get that one right.

How can you dispute the answers? You've not even seen them yet.

Silly goose.
