Snapshot Summary, May 6-14, 2016: Murder at the Banquet and Kitchen Remodel, week 3

May 6-14, 2016

 Murder at the Banquet


Who will be murdered at the International Association of Mystery Solver's First Annual Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and who will solve the case?

Miss Winter
"With all you great detectives (especially Jack), this mystery should be a snap to solve."

Chief Harley Stanton
"I.m happier than a tick on a bulldog to be here tonight."
 Jack Diamond
"Well, Toots, it looks like we have nothing better to do than cool our heels with a dead guy."
  Foster Holmes
"My award was stolen, a man was killed, I'm locked up here with a hick sheriff, a bunch of old detectives and a woman who spends her life maligning my ancestry. How much brighter can it get?"
 Nathan Wimberly
"Here now! What is the meaning of this?"
 Jenny Watson
"Good thinking, Chief, it was real clever of me to stab him while sitting over here!"

The Chef
"I just had a good idea for taking care of the body."

This year's play was performed and a dinner was served to 40 people without a hitch.


Kitchen Remodel, week 3

 More work has been completed on our kitchen.
 The ceiling has been completed.
 The bar counter-top was completed with the laminate, edging and the lighting.
 It is hard to actually see the fixture in the last picture, so here is one with the light off.

Midas is still unsure about the idea of so many strangers in his house.

That about sums up our week.
How was your week?

    1. Thank you. I am afraid that I am going an opposite direction from the current trend of white cabinets! Hard to believe that the ceiling is a drop ceiling, isn't it?

    1. It was a comedy murder mystery. Just a bit more and the kitchen project will be finally completed. I am hoping it will only take one more week.

  4. I love murder mystery parties! Everyone looks amazing :)
    Love your kitchen as well. Can I ask - what is a drop ceiling? I've never heard of that before.

    1. It is a ceiling that is put up by first installing a grid of metal strips that hang by wires and then large tiles are placed into the grid.
