PostSubject: The case of the Silver Thistle Ring   Mon Oct 27, 2008 4:00 pm

From the land of the Bluenose.....it was a day. A day just like the one before and probably like the one tomorrow. I awoke with the Bells of Saint Mary's ringing in my head....a present given to me by Bud when I had my guard down.

This gumshoe(can call myself that as I had my green Kermit the Frog boots on)called on his associate Tony the Twinkle, who wasn't able to make this caper as he was undergoing rehab for his back which he hurt taking out the "garbage." Then Called "Lefty One Thumb Kahanna" who I'd done the dew with before but he wouldn't go out in the rain as he is only 5'5 and would more then likely shrink to 5'3. I was on my own with no back up. Knew there would be some "wet" work involved so I donned my blue rain gear and headed to a place where loose lips are common thinking I might overhear the where abouts of the lost thistle ring.

Had to keep my wits about me as the whole Bud Clan was there and giving me the thousand yard stare.

Wanted a level playing field and I found it but it was crawling with dirty coppers......and no ring!

Being a one time field agent I next hit one!

The place had really gone to the dogs which I gave the right of way to.

Thought this was a good place to dig up the cash I needed for my bookie, Mr. Sixforty Nine who would be around Wednesday to collect. Again everywhere I looked and searched there was another dirty copper. Think the donut shops would keep better tabs on them. Didn't end up with a fin nor a sawbuck but I did have the coppers in my pocket. Time was running out as the Boss and I had a meet and greet at 1500 hrs...AST (Atlantic Standard Time)One dame I sure wouldn't want to be on the bad side of. I continued to investigate the area and came up with an unknown...totally baffled as to what it was.

After this up close and personal encounter with the unknown I discovered my target.

Case closed but time had run out so I had to think quick. I had to think hard. How do I explain my lateness to the Boss. Knew a Chinaman who was close to her and said he could "fix" it

or should I take off my blue rain suit and come clean?

No pain no gain so I offered no excuse to her but buttered her up with Chineese food and the thistle ring.....and it worked.
My take on the caper was the dewy, zipper,a skull from a Bud (he was well worked over) silver ring and 111 coins @$4.67.
My Garretts and finds are now well protected by my cousin, Manuel Labour!

That's some hardcore hunt'n! Cool ring!

That unknown item kind of looks like a high-velocity lighter - the kind a crack-head might use. It's not a good-luck charm.
