On friday I received a letter with no return address. I opened it up and inside was this lovely hand-painted card:There was no note, but the sender clearly knew me and my pets- as this is a great depiction of our Mastiff, Jambo, and our cat, Sneak. Here is what they look like in real life:
Now, I immediately assumed this thoughtful card was from the super talented Julie Rowan-Zoch, who draws and paints all sorts of wonderful and whimsical critters. And, Julie knew that poor Jambo was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and that I was heartbroken.
I sent her an effusive thank you note to which she replied: “Sorry, Iza, I didn’t send you anything!…”
Dumfounded, I began to search for clues, and, sure enough, the postmark was from Minneapolis- not the city or state where Julie lives.
So, now I have a mystery to solve. Here are the facts of the case: This person is thoughtful. This person is a talented artist. This person knows me and my pets. In fact, this person knows that I have one dog and one cat and not the two dogs that appear on my un-updated website (our Aussie, Grommit, died a few years ago.) This person has my mailing address. This person either resides in Minneapolis, was visiting Minneapolis, or sent the card to someone in Minneapolis to send to me. This person is sneaky!
Peeps, can you help me solve this case?
Or, dear sender of this card, will you turn yourself in, so that justice- in the form of a proper thank you- can be served?
