True or False Stories…

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

My time seems to be shorter as I get closer to the end of the book. 🙂 So, once again instead of blogging about who-knows-what, I’m posting a few True or False stories that will be fun!

But first last week’s Mystery Question and answer.

BugattiIn 2009, their eccentric and brilliant uncle passed away, leaving a brother and sister the deed to a dusty old garage in his will. When they opened up the garage  and took a good look inside, they found…

  1. A chest full of Confederate money, never circulated–worth to collectors–$200,000. 
  2. A 1937 Bugatti worth millions.
  3. A canvass bag with $800,000–money he had left from a bank robbery.
  4. Twenty bars of gold bullion.

And the answer is….In case you can’t tell from the photo — #2. And that’s not all he left them. Check it out here.

Now for a couple of True or False stories that may or may not be from my over-active imagination:

When a robber’s .38-caliber revolver failed to fire at its intended victim during a hold-up, he did something that can only inspire wonder: he peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. Happily for most concerned, this time it worked.

What do you think? Did I make it up or is it true?

Leave your guess in the comment box.

And one more:

Two characters in the United Kingdom held up a post office. When they went outside they found their getaway car had been stolen. One of them had left the keys inside. They flagged down a passing car with the intention of using it as a getaway. Unfortunately for them, it was a police car.

Again, leave your guess as to whether this is true or I made it up. And thanks for stopping by! And feel free to Click to Tweet!
