It's A Mystery!

I have loved the mystery genre since I read
my first Nancy Drew!
It's still my favorite especially if it is combined
with a previous era.
For my birthday this year I asked my kids
to give me a mystery evening...
they were very obliging and came all
dressed for the 1930's and with their 
best deduction caps on.
It was kind of like the game Clue
but acted out in conversations and questions.
I was the housekeeper/maid
so I got to watch and serve.

  1. What creativity! This would have been so interesting to watch and listen in on! Super costumes and pictures of the cast and crew. You are an incredibly talented woman with a talented and obliging family. Hope every minute of it was an awesome blessing for each of you. Marcella
