The clues were there for you

We’re going to figure out which of the three stories from yesterday was true. To help, we’re enlisting the aid of 2 experts.


First up is Miss Jane Marple-who studied behavio(u)r in her English village and solved crimes by noticing out of character actions.

Basil_Rathbone_Sherlock_HolmesWe also have Sherlock Holmes who solved crimes by deduction. He’s famous for “after you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth”.

OK, mystery guests (their identity is known but they solve mysteries)-take it away….

MM-Sherlock, I think we can get the answer to this.

SH-Jane, we can do this. I have a problem with Kismet’s ability to throw food pellets out of the cage with such accuracy. I’ve gone over the logistics and ballistics and determined that Kismet would have to be a professional athlete to get that done.

MM-I have a problem with the behaviour (I’m transcribing the English spelling because that’s the way these two talked), not of Kismet but with Kyla. Kaci mentioned that Kyla would get infuriated with getting food thrown at her. Impossible-Kyla would welcome that and beg for more.

SH-The bird option is impossible. Kismet’s in the klear. Good heavens, I wish I could get rid of this annoying “K” habit. As far as Kaci is koncerned, there are 2 sets of tooth prints on the vacuum kleaner attachment that kleans the floor. I checked the dental records-one set is Kyla’s and the other is Kaci’s.

MM-I agree. Kaci is a terrier and wouldn’t back down from the vacuum kleaner. She might piddle on the bed because she’s angry but not because she’s scared. Now you have me doing the “K” thing.

SH-Since we eliminated Kismet and Kaci, that leaves Kyla. The impossible has been eliminated and the improbable is the truth.

MM-Kyla is always on the lookout for new food groups. Our time here is done. Let’s get out of here. It’s a krazy house. I’m getting koncerned about this “K” thing becoming permanent.

SAM_0569Oh no- B U S T E D but by the best. SWTS has a good memory.

About Kismet

I'm a 16 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  1. Darn tootin I have a great memory!
    Great job Sherlock Holmes and Miss Jane Marple.
    Sweet William The Scot

  2. I guess correctly. Good Job Miss Marple and Mr. Holmes for digging down to find the true story. What fun Kyla.

  3. Hmmm I guess I need to brush up on my skills b/c I should have known your chase instinct would make you go after a lizard. But I really am afraid of the vacuum clear and I hide when mom gets it out.

  4. Well done….we should have gone with deductions as well. We seem to remember the lizard tail incident. (Roxy still runs from Vacula.)

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. DOH! I guessed wrong. Sorry, Kaci! And Kyla…lizard tails make for an interesting food choice. Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  6. Yums lizard!!! That sounds yummy indeed!! does it taste like chicken???
    Ruby ♥

  7. NO. The closest to lizard tail I’ve had is Acrocanthosaurus.

  8. I love me some Miss Marple.
    the good part is that the lizard eventually grew its tail back

  9. I guessed it :o) Someone had lizardtail-soup (with green beans?). Bet she is a Kourmet :o)

  10. um…ew 😀 never would have guessed!

  11. Now that just means you’ve got to train that bird to become a start athlete!
