Give Up?

Since no one has been able to answer them in four days, here are the answers to the first three quiz questions:

  1. Uncle Pen was Bill Monroe's uncle Pendleton Vandiver, who taught him to play the fiddle and mandolin. Monroe's hit 'Uncle Pen' was number 1 on the country charts in 1984.
  2. According to Big Joe Turner, you "sit on the bank and watch the crawdads die".
  3. These 'walking shoes' are not just for walking: they're what you wear to walk out of a bad relationship. A Google search came up empty, but I once heard a country song in which a woman put on her walking shoes and her "it's all overcoat".
