Milly just finished the night shift and found a clue. An older car drove by and Milly snapped a picture. Molly, Milly and Robert went to look for the old car at the corner but when they got there it was gone. They were going to share the information with Dad.

Milly's photograph

Milly was tired from staying up all night, so she gave Molly the picture to give to Dad. It was definitely an old car. It looked like a 1972 Chevy Impala. It was a 2-door and it had a nice paint job. It was either painted recently or it came from down south. Molly set the picture on Dad's desk so he would have it when he got up. He was a late sleeper. Molly would have done some research but Dad got so mad when she used his computer. Someday she was going to have a computer of her own.

A 1965 Chevy GTO

Molly was familiar with old cars. Dad had some car magazines that she really enjoyed reading. Molly's favorite magazine of all time was the one that had a 1965 GTO Tri-power in it. What Molly would give to ride in one of those cars. She could pick up Robert and take him screaming up and down the street, they'd fly around the corners. Grandma had a car like this a long time ago. Molly remembered all the stories. That car could get up to 100 miles an hour in the blink of an eye. If Molly had her pick of cars she would pick the shiny red GTO. If she could ride around town in one of those she'd be the talk of the town. Milly could ride shotgun. Molly was drifting off into fantasyland and she had to come back to earth and figure a plan for the day.

Molly strikes out on her own

Molly wanted to walk around the neighborhood and look for clues. If she got lucky she might spot that old car, and then things would get really interesting. If Molly put her mind to it she'd find that car one way or the other. It was a good thing Milly got that picture because at least they had a lead now. Molly decided she was just going to start walking up one street and down the other. That was how the block watch was supposed to do it. They had to keep their eyes and ears open. It was a hot day and Molly was sweaty by the time she got to the corner. There was no sight of an Impala anywhere. She decided to go back home and sit in the air. She wanted to talk to Dad about the picture.

Dad's research

By the time Molly got back home Dad was up. He'd already researched the picture and knew for sure in was a 72 Impala. He came to the same conclusion Molly did. The car had a new paint job or it was from down south. There was no rust on the car and that car was new to this neighborhood. Someone would have seen it around town otherwise. Molly had a very strange thought. Could someone be stealing cars for the parts and putting the new parts on the old cars? It was possible but not probable even though stranger things had happened over the years. What would that have to do with burglaries though? These were thoughts to ponder.

News bulletin

Molly decided to go downstairs to the family room. It was the coolest room in the house. She liked to lay on the couch and watch Television. Molly liked resting her head on one of Mom's softest pillows. She was right in the middle of her program when a news bulletin came across the bottom of the screen. It sounded like their neighborhood made the news. There was another break in on the second street over from them. Molly didn't know what to think at this point. She heard Dad come down the steps which meant he heard the news.

My parents had a 1972 Chevy that I borrowed when my car was in the shop. The '72 Chevy is a BIG, LONG car....so long that I hung it up on the car parked next to me upon pulling out of the parking spot. Need to turn WIDE with a '72 Chevy!

LeRain, thanks for the awesome comment. I've driven a 72 Chevy too and they are big! They are much bigger than the cars today. I didn't have any problems like you but you are so right! You have to turn wide with a car like that! I loved your comment. The stories I could tell you!

I do hope the raccoon is safe and well as it seems to be a one man army!

The sleuths are kept busy with break-ins at breakneck speed! But Dad can rest assured his lieutenants are up to the task - after all the bad guy at the beach will testify to that!

Thanks Nancy for keeping us on the edge - siva

Siva, thanks for the awesome comment. I loved it. I think the raccoon may have gone into hiding but that's just a thought right now.

Nice robbery in the neighborhood. Good to read the story again. I was on an assignment so I miss out many of the action in the story.
It is nice to read these stories Nancy.

Snerfu, thanks for the comment. I write these stories to make people smile. I love make believe and I hope everyone else does too. There's so much in the world that's not fun that I think everyone needs a little carefree time to think outside the box. I'm so glad you like this story.
