Lies! Lies I Tell You!

Thank you all for submitting your guesses. I'm happy to announce that we have a winner. Before I reveal who it is, here are the answers...

The Sting: True
My great grandfather was indeed a con-artist and swindler (how often do you get to use that word?). We believe he was killed because of it as well. Its the source of some great family stories.

Cowboy Hats: True
Yes, I made hats. I made and shaped cowboy hats, fedoras and even top hats. It was a terrible, terrible job and I quit after a couple of days.

German: False
I was required to take a semester of German but I didn't get to skip drama, which was too bad. I hated being the center of attention and still do. After that semester, I never took German again. I took Spanish instead.

DJ Jazzy Cactus: False
While its true that our college radio station was received by maybe one student on any given day, I was never a DJ. I just didn't see the point if no one could hear me.

Run Cactus, Run: True
I held the record in the 440 for a school year. I was quick!

Yul Brenner: True
I'm happy to say that this happened exactly the way I described it. It was especially impressive as I'd had the opportunity to see him on stage in a production of The King And I a year earlier.

Who's the winner, you ask? Sweety!! Congratulations!! And for those of you who don't know Sweety, please go and check her out!

Oh well, better luck to me next time.

I was close! How was I supposed to know your ancestors were swindlers?
