Do I Aspire To Be A Detective?


It was such a beautiful day I wanted to go visit my turtles and reestablish my ownership. The renter man always says the girls are feeding them twice a day. They were waiting and seemed hungry so they got their puppy food and old bread. Lucy was late coming up. I just knew she was living in a fish tank in the farm house. The farm house is to the left of this picture and farther up the lane. When we got even with this old orginal house there was an old pick-up parked behind this house as if someone was hiding it. There are plenty of places to park a vehicle without parking it behind this house. All the blinds were drawn and everything was very quiet as usual at the farm house. When John stopped near the old truck and got out to walk to it two guys rushed out the back door. John ask if the truck belonged to them and they said yes it will be gone tonight. By that time I had got out and the girlfriend to the son of the renters came out and we spoke a few words as to how lovely the day was. Then she gave me a shocker. She said I have my niece living out here now. Lets see now I'm losing count. How old is she I ask? Three years old and her mother's boyfriend is mean to her so I'm taking her to live with me. In the mean time while we were checking the cattle, feeding the turtles, and filling the house water tank the truck disappears. I wouldn't be giving these people so much leeway but I'm not the landlady, am I?

I'd hire you as my detective any time! Men can be so blind; but we won't tell them, will we?

Rose said...

I have to remember this Paula I may need you some day for some detective work!

It does sound kinda strange. My goodness, how many people does that make now, I've lost count, too. It pays to pay attention to what is said and done. John doesn't want to harbour anyone running from the police.

You sound like a pretty good detective to me. I think you know pretty much what is going on. Now you should figure out how many people live in that two bedroom house. Glad that Lucy was not living in the tank at the farmhouse. Helen

One of the things I've found out in life - If someone offers up too much information without being prompted or asked, most often it's to hide or keep you from asking the question they don't want to answer.

In other words, what are they NOT telling you. (Hugs)Indigo

Lucy said...

You tell them that Lucy does not want to live in their house. There are to many people there. Lucy wants you to continue to take care of her and feed her. They sound like quite a bunch.

I bet the repo man was lookiing for the truck.
They may have pulled a robbery and Police looking for truck so they had to hide. I should have also been a detective. I have an
inquisitive mind.

I would have asked who they were and what they were doing there.
If they said the truck would be gone tonight-it doesn't sound like 'visiting' relatives but trouble on the move.
