Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
A mystery in the making. . .Whoever they are, they look to be of a serious nature.(A slight revision of my previous—yet to be published—comment.) :-)
That someone must love this house very much! :o)OR..love the tracks of her own lips! who knows?...
There is a message there.
Just the first line was intriguing, Sharon! I can imagine a little person doing this...or someone very much enamored with someone else. It reminds me of when I tried my grandmother's VERY red lipstick once as a four-year-old. There were more than lip prints everywhere!
Perhaps the tracks come from a family of kissers? The kiss marks in the second shot look like they're from three different lips.
what a romp to follow those kisses through the house until one came upon the ruby lips puckered and ready to plant another.
You're all giving me great ideas. Hmmmm!
I see Text Clues in the second picture! Perhaps my 5th graders can make some inferences tomorrow and help us all with this mystery?
Mrs. B: it will be interesting to see what your students come up with!
Dear Mrs. Creech,We had so much fun reading your poem and investigating your pictures. We put our heads together and we think a young child got into their mom's lipstick and secretly went through the house placing kisses. Most of us have little brothers or sisters that have actually done that very thing. We think the culprit is a child because of the Club Penguin poster on the wall. Club Penguin is an online game for kids. Also, we think the picture on the wall looks like it would belong in a kids room. One last observation. The kisses are the height of a picture hanging on the wall...the kisser is taller than a toddler, so they are older than a toddler...maybe.Some of us think you're just tricking us. You ARE very clever...we know.Your Friendly Detectives,Mrs. Bright's Class
Mrs. Bright: I was unable to post on the school blog, so I'll reply here and hope that you find it. Your student investigators are VERY smart!! The mystery kisser is/was my 10-yr-old granddaughter and that wall is in her room. (Also note: at the right you can see part of a poster w/the cover of the hardback version of THE WANDERER.) Ta da! Congratulations.
Yea! We're a happy group and feeling so smart right now! We looked up information about your book THE WANDERER. We found the cover that is in your picture. Thanks for telling me that my blog is closed to comments. I'll have to fix that. :)P.S. We're working on answers to your questions from your Textures post.
