I have a birthday coming up. See if you can figure out the year I was born.
The preceding year, the Canadian mint struck only 422,741 ten-cent pieces. (A very low total.)
King George VI of England was on the throne. (Probably all that chili and beer.)
Hurricane Hazel was still a few years in the future. (Ripped our roof pretty good.)
The Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup. (Yeah, it was a good decade.)
And the giveaway question...
Newfoundland becomes Canada's 10th province. (You gotta love Joey.)
Prizes? Certainly. The first correct respondent receives dinner for six at The Lunch Counter. Guest chef: Bear Grylls, the guy from Man vs Wild. (He eats shit raw -- like snakes, scorpions, bugs. I hope he at least brings a fondu pot.)
Subsequent correct answers will be rewarded with a cited quotation of their choice on the Lunch Counter sidebar. (If I can figure out how to use those design/settings things again.)
Contest closes around about the cocktail hour on the 19th.
