Monday Madness (A Quiz) a.k.a Talking What???

Georgia has some towns with interesting names, like Fairplay and Hopeful and Constitution and Hephzibah and Beulah and Talking Rock and Between and Washington and Jefferson and Monticello and Climax and Needmore and even Stillmore.

I have never been more serious in my life.

Today I invite you to play a little game. Choosing a first word from Column A and a second word from Column B, come up with the names of 29 actual towns in Georgia. No fair peeking at an atlas or using an internet search engine.

When you are ready, you may begin.

Column A.............Column B

1. Ball.................. Harris
2. Blue................. Rica
3. Cave................ Ty
4. Locust.............. Lakes
5. Sunny.............. Hill
6. College............. Rock
7. Dock................ Falls
8. Druid.............. Valley
9. Five................ Springs
10. Flowery......... Mountain
11. Lookout......... Circle
12. Mineral......... Island
13. Powder.......... Hill
14. Pine.............. Springs
15. Rocky............ Springs
16. Radium......... Mountain
17. Sandy........... Face
18. Sea............... Bluff
19. Social............ Mountain
20. Stone............ Branch
21. Sugar............ Forks
22. Sugar............ Hills
23. Tallulah........ Junction
24. The............... Park
25. Tunnel.......... Side
26. Twin............ Grove
27. Ty................ Spring
28. Villa............. Ridge
29. Young........... Ground

How many can you get without cheating?

In my next post I will reveal the correct answers.

Sorry, RWP. I was otherwise occupied and didn't do much bloggy stuff yesterday. I was not ignoring you. I'll play with these before I read the answers.
