Mysteries abound in August. Win 26+ Women Sleuths eBooks!

Under the shadow of this week’s eclipse, we ponder life’s great mysteries.  Why do multiple possessions vanish into a black hole the second Lorraine puts them down?  Why after many gruelling fundraisers on her tandem, did Pam choose a cycling holiday in Germany when she could be lying on a beach?  Why does Binkie, out of all Lorraine’s ten chickens, have her own Facebook page?  Why did she and her fellow hens choose to lay her eggs next to a massive snake. Most worrying of all, where is that snake hiding now?


We may never know the answers to these questions but we do have a fabulous giveaway featuring some brilliant and extremely entertaining women sleuths.

  1. Thank you so much for the chance…

  2. Possible answers.
    1. To test your mental acuity 2. fear of muscles atrophying and having to re-train them ( ouch) 3.Binky is too cool a name to ignore 4. The snake recognizing the cool-itude wanted to belong. The snake being afraid of angry Binkies and friends has quietly slunk off to find a warmer reception out of state.

  3. Interesting photo! However, no hen in her right mind would lay an egg next to a snake! Most likely your hens started a communal nest and the setting hen left it when the snake appeared. The snake sensed the warmth and wrapped itself around the eggs. ( I used to raise chickens.) What do you think?

    • Sorry, just noticed your comment! I think you’re right, we saw the snake that once and once the next day in the coop but it disappeared once I took down the shade tarp that the hens had started laying under. I think it just saw an opportunity for a place to cuddle up. Although having said that, the hens did not seem at all bothered by the snake. I suspect he or she lives hidden away in our yard, probably under the deck – a bull snake, harmless – we saw him a few years ago three times in one day, and then no sighting for ages until this one. Lorraine.
