Welcome to day 2 of Pepperberry & Co.'s Blogtoberfest!

Today, I have a creative challenge for you to fire up those neurons before we begin the coming week. Are you ready?

Your mission is to solve the mystery behind this photo, which was taken 2 night's ago:

What is happening? Why is Tango the Bichon wearing Pajamas? Why is Sandra wearing socks up to her knees and pants up to her chest? Why are she and Sharon pointing faux guns?

Here are your clues:

- The lawn was not mowed for 3 months
- This photo is followed by a minor violation of the law
- The dead of the night is involved

So, Creative Sleuths, it's over to you! What is happening?

Ummm... the council came to investigate your overgrown lawn and you had to hide the dog because you failed to register him when it was due last week. The dog's pajamas are a clever disguise. The long socks are to protect pajama legs from wet grass.... no WAIT, there has been pajama-wearing bike riding involved somehow....? You don't have lights on your bikes do you?

My word verification was DROOL. Is that another clue, do you think?

My guess is that you were heading out to steal a ride-on lawn mower..... or maybe a sheep?

I'm guessing you stole out in the dead of night to stash all the extra long grass clippings in your neighbours' green bins, or a nearby skip? I have no idea how the doggy PJs or pants-up-to-the-armpits fit into the story though. Perhaps so you could plead (and show evidence of) insanity once caught?

in the dead of night you got into your jarmies, because your are really jet lagged, and day is night and night is day, and you cut down a bit of the tree that was threatening to come through your kitchen window, and, wait for it... without paying the council the $500.00 fee, so they could give you permission to chop that pesky branch off!

Hehe. You got caught breaking curfew to hold a midnight reading of _A Mysterious Incident of the Dog in the Night_. Since your neighbors don't like nighttime doggy jabbers, you disguised the dog as a baby. Then you donned your boots to protect your legs from chiggers and dew, you hiked up the pants for a fast getaway, and you holstered your finger-guns.

Hmmm.... let me think....*insert a bit of serious looking and chin-rubbing here*! You are going to your treehouse for a sleepover BUT the grass is so long that you have to tuck your jammies into your socks so they don't get wet! AND you have to have your *ahem* pistols out just in case you get ambushed by brown snakes? In fact, every item of clothing is "tucked in" so the snakes can't make their way onto your skin?!!!! Just call me Sherlock! You can find me in the parlour with the iron bar!
Hugs! And WELCOME HOME!!! Vikki xoxo

that made me laugh. you havent mowed the lawn and all the grass is long and dry. so you get raided by the local herd of cattle. the noise makes you think intruders so you pretend to have guns in the window to scare them off. the dog is in pj cos hes already been put to bed but heard the heifers hooves and came to get you. so you put on your wellies ... you make a shadow of a gun in the blinds and step out to scare whatever maybe out there. you panic and run at what you think is a person and end up tipping a cow that hits your neighbours car. but you dont report the cow tipping or the damage to the car. whats worse is you steal the solar lamps from their yard so you can see a little better and dont put them back. Oh you naughty people and such panic merchants. the poor pooch needs new jimjams now as he got a little too scared of the big bull in the herd. lol

Perhaps you are going out into the dead of night to make crop circles in your long grass. Don't think we've had any in Melbourne for a while. :)
