On Deadline Here

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

I said I’d never be here again…You know, behind on my deadline. But I am, so my posts for the next six weeks will be briefer and maybe a little different again. But first the answer to last week’s Mystery Question: I’m doing something different this week. Below are listed four crimes. Three of them actually happened. One did not. Can you …

From Beaches to Snow

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

From sunny Cozumel to snow in Mississippi! Yes, I woke up to a light covering of snow on my front yard this morning. And I know my friends up North are laughing that I would even get excited about such a light dusting. But, hey! We don’t get snow that often here. 🙂 This is my favorite kind of snow…except …

Another Mystery Question

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

So that means spring is right around the corner…I actually saw buttercups (daffodils) ready to bloom last week. It’s been one of the mildest winters I can remember.
