Raven challenge 61

Today I face another Raven's Challenge.

Ten Word Challenge will be: translation, crunchy, cat’s paw, trunk, I love raspberry tarts, global warming, star struck, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, fragile, Spring fever

Mini Challenge: pancakes and syrup, flat tire, mongoose, this place looks like a bordello, first dance

Mini Challenge:

Her cupboard was bare, and Sandy Shore was very hungry. Her desire was for pancakes and syrup. A quick trip to the grocery store would solve this problem. For Sandy things did not just go simply.
She was still a distance from the store, when she heard thump thump and knew she had a flat tire.
Sandy pull her car to the side of the road. There was a large older looking house with cars in its parking lot. Although she knew how to change the tire, she wanted some aid in the endeavor. As she approached the front door she could see in the large front window and noticed the attire of the women, she thought to herself this place
looks like a bordello. I think I will try elsewhere. She walked on down the street when a mongoose crossed in front of her. She stopped, looking for her penguin. The polar bear at the Poets Corner was a enemy, so this mongoose could also be dangerous. The mongoose continued to walk away, and she gave a sigh of relief. After about a five mile stroll she saw a church that had a wedding and the guests were in the fellowship hall watching the bride and groom have the first dance. She told her problem and got two men to come to her aid.
Tire changed ,Sandy finished her task of getting the food she needed.

" Gary Stoner is the name of the man in the tan overcoat. The police have found his van abandoned in the woods just out of town. They are going over it now," said Mr Lemer as he entered Jennifer's living room. He was carrying a white bag from The Cats Paw bakery. Martin got up and got a plate to put its contents on. He brought the plate to Jennifer. "I love raspberry tarts," she said. The men also took a tart and there was a crunchy sound with each bite.
"Martin would you write an article on global warming for the next issue of the paper. I must have Spring fever I just can't concentrate . Really I just want the police to catch Gary Stoner."
Mr Lemer said" I am going back to police headquarters to see what information might come from the van."

Jack Lemer was a bit star struck as he listened to the police detective Lance River explain what they found in the trunk in the back of the van. They found some papers written in another language which they could not identify. A translation of the script on the fragile papers was needed. For all they knew it could be just a copy of The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, but that was unlikely. The papers were not all they found in the van. There were items that linked Gary Stoner to the murder of his sister and the other girl. Jack also learned that Gary Stoner was in trouble with the law on numerous times and had spent some time in prison.

Poor Sandy. Things NEVER go simply for her. I think I might be living her life... LOL!

Oh I'm so glad they have a name and info now! Gary Stoner will be in custody in NO time, I'm sure!

Gary Stoner is a thoroughly bad lot! I hope they get him soon. :)

Raven said...

Well, Sandy, with or without her penguin, certainly doesn't have a boring life. I hope the killer in Jennifer's story is captured.

Dianne said...

I'm with Melli! I think I'm living a bit of Sandy's life although I could do with a penguin

I had a friend with the last name of Stoner when I was young. "Stoner" certainly means something else these days. This particular Stoner seems a particularly bad lot.

sandy sure has a propensity for finding trouble, but luckily she somehow finds a way out as well.

i hope that hitonious stoner character gets nicked soon

I went back through your posts to early March, catching up on the stories. Some interesting things have been happening, and I enjoyed reading about them. I liked the invisible animals, too. This week's episode was a good addition to the story, and had a new invisible animal, a mongoose. It was just there briefly, but perhaps we'll see some more of it in future stories.
