The Answer - Sen10r Year Edition!

The doorbell rings...

of course the dogs go crazy barking...

we live on a culdesac, so that is really bad for ding dong and ditching...

but luckily for any heathens seeking revenge, they get a huge running head start on us because because we have to put the dogs up, before we open the door.

Why we don't just allow the eating alive of potential heathens? Because sometimes it is actually a nice neighbor, and apparently the ol' saying "it is easier to seek forgiveness than permission" doesn't apply with big bad scary dogs AT ALL!
Too bad, because we could actually have fun with it... if anyone ever figured out what sweet fuzzy pushovers they really are.

.

So the scene...
A burning candle and a box of Cocoa Puffs...

It's obviously for the teenager...

Yep, It looks suspicious...

Hmmm....


There is a note...

It's encrypted...


Okay now every one's curiosity is peaking...

Let's put our skills together.



Ha Ha! The Strong Silent Mysterious man walks back through the clues...


There has to be something he missed?

So while the teenager tries to decode the message...

The "Old Man" continues to search for more clues...

The teenager comes back on the scene...

after every piece of evidence had been ripped through.
He confirmed the Chinese character indeed says
"YES"
.
As for the burning candle... well it was a Catholic candle "Prayer to the Holy Spirit" and from what we have learned so far, it is the Prayer of St. Augustine;
to help reveal to the soul the mysteries of heavenly things;
to give an answer to those things which have been asked through prayer.
.
So there you go... the answer revealed... a very happy teenager!

Rach - Ashley L.

They are good friends and will be able to go and have a great time! What was even funnier, is these silly games they play to ask and answer were all done after they had the whole conversation to actually go to prom together... so not really any surprises, which made the whole detective thing at our house to figure out the answer super funny... we all knew who it was and that she was going to say YES!! Yet there was still some suspense and intrigue! LOL
