‘Lock your doors, Nannie’ ends with wonderful adventure

‘Lock your doors, Nannie’ ends with wonderful adventure: I pull down the red blinds, put “The Phantom of the Opera” on the CD player, and look at the letters and the newspaper clippings one at a time. (I always did like a flair for the dramatic!) In past days, Jonah and I scoured these letters even visiting the police station and the United States Post Office. “We think these are real,” they both said. Jonah (who also has a flair for the dramatic) says, “Lock your doors, Nannie.”

Letters, cards and the wooden box from the mysterious story!!

Here is the link to this week's column. I hope you enjoy it! It has been a marvelous adventure thanks to one of my theatre students, Brandy Shaw!! I do love a good mystery. Please just click on the above link and the story is yours!

It was the biggest surprise. I never thought it was a former student. I thought of many folks I spend time, funny adults who would do it.
There were times it was very creepy. You need to choose someone with a vivid imagination who would find it very creepy. I did, indeed, lock the doors and close the blinds. Jonah and I did go to the Post Office and the Police Station. The grim reaper in my garden will be a constant reminder of this wonderful event. Choose wisely, my friend!
