The team is enjoying some down time after their last case. Dad stopped at the pet store with Molly to see how Clarissa and Katie were doing. While they were there they met Freddy the goldfish. Dad and Molly were so impressed with Freddy that they brought him and his fish tank home with them. Freddy isn't just an ordinary gold fish. He's a gold fish that loves to stay up with current events. The news is his favorite program. Molly thinks he would be an asset to the team.

Staying warm on a cold day

Molly was in the family room where it was warm. Fall was gone and winter was here. The wind was howling outside and the snow had been coming down for hours. If it kept up Dad was going to have to go outside and shovel. The trees were covered in ice and snow and everybody was trying to stay warm. Molly was staying near the electric heater in the corner of the room. She was wearing the sweater Grandma had knitted for her last Christmas. The color was a little bright but it kept her as warm as could be.

Waiting for Robert

The more Molly thought about Freddy the more she really liked the idea of making him part of the team. She'd called Robert to ask him what he thought of the plan. He should be here any minute. Molly asked Mom to send Robert down to the family room. He only lived across the street but he would be cold by the time he got here. He'd warm up fast once he got in the house. Molly was waiting patiently for Robert but sometimes he got sidetracked and he'd probably be late. She didn't want to mention anything to Freddy till she asked for Robert's feedback on bringing Freddy onboard.

Milly sees Miss Darcy's friend

Milly was in the living room looking outside through the window. She was watching Robert as he crossed the street. It looked like he was coming this way. Molly must have called him because it was too cold to be outside on a day like this. Milly saw a blue jay on one of the snow covered limbs. It looked like a friend of Miss Darcy's. He usually stayed in the park but for some reason he was in the tree outside. Milly shivered just thinking about it. The front door opened and in walked a snow covered Robert. He shook his coat and snow went everywhere. Mom told him that Molly was in the family room. He passed Freddy on his way downstairs. Freddy was watching the news when Robert walked through the room.

Molly and Robert discuss Freddy

Molly greeted Robert as he came down the steps. Robert had to do a double take because Molly had on the brightest sweater he'd ever seen. That sweater could stop traffic in the middle of rush hour. He continued down the steps and walked over to the couch and sat down. It was warm in the family room. He planned to spend the afternoon with Molly. She was his best friend and any day spent with her was a day well spent. Molly got right to business. She told Robert all about Freddy and wanting to invite him to be part of the team. Robert was onboard from the minute he heard about Freddy and his obsession with the news. He could definitely be an asset to the team. Of course Freddy couldn't go out on assignments but he would be a good contact for home base. He could keep them up to date of news bulletins.

Freddy joins the team

Freddy liked his new home. It was warm and inviting and everyone was nice. They kept the news channel on for him and that was an added bonus. When he was at the pet store, the owner always kept the news on too. He had his face glued to the side of the fish bowl nearest the television screen. When Molly and Robert came upstairs they went right over to Freddy's fish bowl. Molly got straight to the point and told Freddy they wanted to make him part of their team. He was happy to be of help as long as he didn't have to leave his fish bowl. Dad had been listening to the conversation and was happy to have another team member. The team was known far and wide, they were making a name for themselves. When the team showed up it was just a matter of time before the bad guys were on the run. The team consisted of four dogs, Molly, Sally, Sammy and Robert. Then there was Milly the cat. Rusty the raccoon, Spike the squirrel, Miss Darcy the bird, Clarissa and Katie the tarantulas, Maggie the duck, and Freddy the fish. They made an awesome team.

Now the team has an ear on breaking news 24/7. Freddy may look harmless but sure to pack a punch, punch above his fish bowl, when it matters!

Thanks Nancy, the team is waiting for the cowering baddies now for a change! siva

Siva, thank you so much for the wonderful comment. I think with Freddy watching the news 24/7 the team will be kept up to date with all the latest bulletins. I also think the team is gaining strength with their numbers. I love the fact that they are becoming famous here, there and everywhere. Smiles to you today and always.

Who would have thought Freddy could potentially be helpful?
We get blue jays here in the fall and winter, they come right up to the door and try to get the cat food we put outside for the cats that are outside in the day.

great team, how about a carrier pigeon for the team? a blood hound because of his great sense of smell?

Carol, thanks for the great comment. I have a name for a new team member but I'm not sure who it's going to be. The name will be Sparky. Smiles to you this morning!

Carol, I do like your idea. A firefly would be a great addition to the team. He could light the way.

brendamarie, thank you so much for thinking about the team. I never thought about a dachshund. I will have to do some research. I know they have a very good temperament. I'm so very thankful that you love this winter story. I've been trying to figure out who my favorite team member is but I'm still not sure. It all started with Molly but I do love them all.

It is always good to have somebody at home base keeping things together like that so yes, Freddy will be good help to the team.
I think it was good that you reminded us of who the characters are at the end of this post because sometimes I miss a story or two and forget who is who!

Kingwell, thank you so much for your wonderful comment! I loved it! I think Freddy is quite interesting for a fish. Can you just imagine? I guess we all have our specialties and Freddy's is the news. At least he can keep the team up to date on what's going on around town. I can't handle too much news but if I had a fish around that wanted to keep me up to date that would be awesome. Smiles to you today and always. Blessings!

I must say the team is a hoot! I love how they try so hard to help regardless of what they have to go through. Smiles to you today and always!
