The 125 country test was held Oct. 24, 1997 at the Brazosport Facts newspaper offices, with journalist Rhonda Moran administering the exam. The results:

Both girls PASSED!

Vickie went first and demonstrated a superb grasp of geography. Then Valerie was up, and she quickly located every country and sea without missing one. The prizes were Silver Centurion certificates, First Place ribbons, and a Sheila Rae the Brave computer game.

After Christmas, study towards 150 countries begins. Now they'll take a break from geography and begin typing lessons.

Send them some congrats! -- Dad
