Did they all sell Bibles at one time?

Okay, maybe I'm out of it, but I have no idea who Ike Turner is.

I don't suppose you're out of it Cathy, probably just too young? Do you know who Tina Turner is, I'm sure you do, well, back in the early 60's she used to be married to Ike and they sang things like "Deep Purple". Really did rather like them myself! :)

As to the stumper question, I'm sorry to say, I have no idea. :(

Ike Turner was the husband to Tina Turner and members of a musical group.

I know about Tina Turner now; when I was a kid, such music was forbidden at our house, which is probably why I'd never heard of Ike.

I am waiting for more clues, but I will guess that they all grew up in the sticks, the boonies, the way out back. I really have no idea.

All three are in the public eyes now.~

Mitch, obviously Sunday is a REALLY slow day on the forum. I am going to guess that they all used to wear glasses. I don't know, though, because I haven't seen any of them in a while to know if they wear glasses now. Maybe you could carry this over till tomorrow and let more people guess at it?

Are they all orginally from Indiana???

This conserns past employment.~

Well, I know David Letterman was a weather man for a local station in Indy. But Willie and Ike, don't know.

-- Annie (, January 28, 2002.

All worked in gas stations?

Since it is now Monday, all three were radio disc jockeys in the past.
