Good morning™, all!
I wonder why the diary would be missing. I don’t have a hypothesis on that, at least not yet.
Good morning™, diary peepers !
If you’re prim and proper as Ms. Caxton appeared to be; the materials on your desk are always in order that help with regular access might just notice when something is out of place.
Well me hate to gives spoiler but obviously the butler did it.
Tracy, get that hand out of your pocket!
Gosh, is this exciting!
I thought she was going to say, ‘Ms. Caxton.’
Maybe the diary had incriminating evidence in it?!
I think the colorist got the shades of green reversed on the blotter. Shouldn’t it be darker where the diary covered it, while the rest would be faded by the exposure to light?
Diary or appointment book that would have a record of who was coming? And I still think the housekeeper should know there is a safe in the wall (although, without x-ray eyes, she couldn’t tell if anything were missing).
are we getting an undisclosed Minute Mystery?
It’s the Diary of A Crazy Rich Old White Woman ! by Madea !!!
“Did she have any valuables, in something like a SAFE?”
“You mean the corpse?”
Dick looks good in profile in the first panel , so tall and erect . He’s pointing too .
The house keeper has a good memory……
Figured it out. The killer is lovable fuzzy alien ALF who, having stolen a ham sandwich with onions and and whipped cream (garnished with only the finest vegan lark’s vomit), hid out in the wall safe to enjoy it in peace. Surprised, he instinctively lashed out with the pickle spear.
Look under the sofa cushion, Tracy. But be wary. He still has a crust left and he’s on the run and very jumpy. Better send SAM in
1-DT: Looks like you don’t clean very well – look over there. MAID MARION: WHY THE…HOW’D YE LIKE A KICK IN THE BALLS, YE FECKIN…
2-…Oh. I see what yer sayin’….3-…I was under strict orders to never tech the desk blotter, don’t ye know. Aiii, but the old gal is dead now so I can tech it all I want! Tech, tech, tech, tech. HAA HAAA! Take that ye old hag!
DT: Hmmm. So the desk blotter was special somehow… SAM! Slip that blotter into your evidence pocket!
This is what we should have seen when they found Ms. Caxton.
Okay,this is the former 18.104.22.168—-my computer re-booted ITSELF and then it assigned me THIS new nom de plume even though that’s not what I t yped in.
Computers should be tossed from high windows until they’re impaled on flagpoles,same as The Brow.
“Santy Claus don’t drink!”
“Oh,yeah? Then how come he’s always falling down chimneys?”
Bob Hope&William Frawley—-THE LEMON DROP KID—1951
Hopefully, the reboot has fixed it so people can reply to me—I’ve been in limbo for three weeks.
We open with a nice, bloody murder—-which is Gouldian enough for me.
Minit Mysteries are fictional. I think this is a continuity case.
In personal news, we have no car so I rarely go near my garage. Until I noticed a gray mass outside that turned out to be a wasp nest the size of a watermelon.
Had to pay the pros 450 bucks to get rid of it
I think Bridget Jones did it, and then took her diary back…Next Case
The housekeeper must not know about the safe. She would have said something about it by now. Whoever did the deed put back the picture which covered it.
With the help of prissy missy Housekeeper-Lady, Tracy has the clue of the missing diary with which to work; he should be able to deduce, as quickly as we of the Comments, that the name of the perp was in it. That, however, is not going to help much at this moment.
Does Housekeeper-Lady know of the existence of the wall safe? Will she tell Tracy about it? How will our Chief of Detectives get this case moving?
TRACY (thinking): Something…oh well, it will turn up, I feel SAFE in that….
