Failing Memory? Things I Can’t Remember

Begins here a list of memory lapses, items I reach for mentally before drawing a blank. I am not counting things I forget because I was incapacitated. (E.g., stuff I buy on Amazon when drunk or sleepwalking.) I put an asterisk after anything I actually went and Googled, or otherwise hunted around for.

Stuff I Forget

  1. Name of resort town near Rimini, where I was for WMA in Sept. 2007.  (Riccione*)
  2. That 1910s recording star and performer who sang ‘Over There.’ (Nora Bayes*)
  3. 18th century German homosexual art historian and Italophile. (Winckelmann)
  4. The bibulous ‘red brick don’ with mustache in ‘Tinker Tailor.’  (Roy Bland)
