Day Thirty-six - Shooting the "E"

Let's see, the Letter "E" as an antique. . .

Today's trivia feeds off yesterday's "D" as it was Dick of the classic reading primer, "Dick and Jane." The reading company issued two different versions of their readers. Any idea why?

Those who figured out "Dick" - Steph, Mike P., Joani, Mike Di., and Phil. We had good guesses - Dungarees and Down. 

Only Mike P. knew that Paladin's calling card featured the chess piece, the Knight. I'll bet he could even sing the theme song - I have it on my computer, if needed!

  1. Bom dia amigo Jose!
    Dick and Jane two different versions. Two different guesses? Maybe problems with copyrights? How about the Catholic grammar schools needed an imprimatur?
    Many memories of reading the books in the mid fifties with my good friends The Sisters Of Notre Dame de Namur!
    Take care Joe!
