Have you just had your best day of Sleuthing ever? Solved your first AI case? Got your last contact? Picked up your first treasure? Found a spoon? Finally got into the Prince's Palace?*

This is the place to share the joy, have a 'woot' or two and be congratulated by your fellow Sleuths.

Or maybe you've just had to pay Shady enough cash to finance a small war. Or reached screaming point with the tailor in Delhi. Or been pirated twice in a row. Or fallen into a trap three times running. You can share the woe, too, and we'll commiserate. We've probably been there too.

Me? I'm just happy that after two days' worth of 'south of the race track' I've finally got out of Shanghai :)

(* If you don't get the references, never mind. You could ask someone. Or you could just wait and see what the world of Sleuth brings you further down the line...)

Ah, memories... There was the time I got hijacked by Black Bob of Nantucket and his crew of desperadoes, who treated us to a full rendition of the ballet from ''Oklahoma'', followed by a rousing chorus of ''There Is Nothing Like A Dame''...

Oh how I love what I call the bull's eye favour cases.

The only piece of evidence belonging to your PE contact, matches the only suspect revealed at the beginning, who has your WE contact as an alibi, and who is the criminal :)

I have been playing this game for years, this is my fourth detective (because I take long breaks and forget passwords) and have always gotten a PE contact in NY right away. This time around they keep giving me useless crap. Grr...Hoping that saying it out loud (in text) jostles the fates into giving me that nasty ole Ruby. :)

It's been a weird couple of days. I've run into a couple of really strange names for suspects (can't remember where that thread went, but oh well), and then to top it off, the hubby finally captures...

Aristotle "Demented Burro" Zulfiqar

:-.

Now, I was there when they modified the AV moniker list. Heck, I helped my partner come up with a slew of 'em. But "Demented Burro"?!?!

O.O

Ani, what the....

I'm presuming this is your ironically twisted take on Crazy Horse. I know we came up with some rather outlandish things.

But DEMENTED BURRO????

*head in hands, giggling*

Apparently nothing is sacred anymore in the world of Sleuth. ;-)

Better than off-kilter jack@ss, I guess. :)

Today was the first time I completed a treasure hunt. The Gilded Necklace of the Olmecs. It was an indescribable feeling :)

Our little newbie is growing up so fast!! Why just yesterday I remember she couldn't solve incredibly hard cases. And look at 'er now. I remember one time....

*goes back to rocking in her chair, thumping her cane on the porch gently in time to the rhythm of the swaying.*

Way to go, Lawlie!! ;-D

Still trying to get hold of a favour for the Tailor in Delhi -they seem to be as rare as hen's teeth! At least I've saved up enough to pay off Shady should I be foolish enough to get a 2nd falsie.

And I've managed to lose my voice. It usually turns up, hidden in my sock drawer ... but not yet!

I'd check with the chickens, Melanie. They always seem to know where the stolen voices and the tailors' favors disappear to. :-.

It's day #6 for my latest migraine, and I'm starting to get just a bit fed up with having my brain try to explode out of my skull. It would be really, really nice if we had a nice series of rainstorms pop up, like we had around here the beginning of last week. But no, blaring sunshine and 75+ degree weather, every day. It sort of makes one believe there really is a devil. :-/

Then, to top it all off....

I'd just let my two dogs outside just after the crack of dawn this morning, and gone back to bed to try and get some more blissfully pain-free sleep. About ten minutes later, Gid-get and Wid-get starting barking their heads off.

Now, normally, this wouldn't be such a big deal. Most dogs don't have that big of a bark to them. A Chihuahua, tiny li'l yip. A poodle, puuuhl-ease. A Lab, no problemo.

But my two aren't yer average Pekingese. Oh no. They're Great Pyrenees. (Think kissing-cousins to a Saint-Bernard.) They've got a woof that you can hear in the next county, let alone next door. Now, the good news is, they very, very rarely bark. They only bark when there REALLLY is a reason for them to be barking. The bad news is, when they bark, you better call 911, cause somebody's dead, or the house is on fire. (The other good news is, they usually bark for about 30 seconds, then stop. Whatever has caused them to bark--burglar, raccoon, errant postman, whatever--has usually hightailed it by that time.)

So they start up about 8:15 this morning with their not-usual WOOOOOOFFs. And this time, they don't stop. After two minutes of this, I finally crack an eye open, and glare at the hubby.

"What the hell're they barkin' at??"

"Dunno, but it's your turn to go look."

(Thank you, Sweetheart. I lovvves you too. ;-)
