Bobby's Blotter continues its dangerous sway as some of the perkiest writing around.
Can't you just picture it?
"Two framed prints were reported stolen from a Park View Drive home.
The prints disappeared during the past four years [My emphasis]. No suspects."
"Hold on ... didn't there used to be a print over there?"
"Did there, dear? What print?"
"Oh *you* know, Horace ... the one my mother gave us ... 'Chevron Flight' - the nice one of geese over Eagle Harbor by her friend in the nursing home."
"Geese? I don't remember any geese. You sure you're not thinking of 'Tally Ho!', the one with all them horses and geezers in red coats?"

"Which Glen? All I remember is the one with all the trees ..."
"Do take more interest in the house, dear. We gave 'Dusk over Ullswater' to Georgina to take up to college."
"Blimey, I bet she was pleased with that. Perfect match for her Bill Frisell posters, I *don't* think."
"Try to stay focused, Horace. We need to report this. We may have been burgled ..."
"I say, do you really think so? I need to check my stamp album ... when do you think the buggers got in?"
