Sherlock Sandy and the Mystery of the Grey Day (Pt 1)

Er, good morning bears and not-a-bears!! Mama came into my bedroom this morning and told me that something was wrong!

I sat up and sleepily rubbed the fluff out of my eyes. Hmm... let's see... I'm here. Ted E. Bear is here. Mama is here. What could possibly be wrong?

And then, as I looked at my beautiful wilderness quilt... I realized what was wrong. Where was all the colour???

Uh-oh!! This is bad... Is it just my room?

Nope... here's Rascal and she's looking particularly grey today...

Oh dear... it's outside too!!

This is serious! Mama was right to call me... This is a matter for... (drum roll please...)

Sherlock Sandy!!!

As any good detective does, I returned to the scene of the first observation.

This is indeed beary serious.

The only one who is looking relatively normal is Spooky... Perhaps she is the culprit? Jealous of all the colour in the world when she has been dealt a black and white body? Although... her eyes are normally green and they are looking decidely grey... so it can't be her.

Hmmm... I must do some research...

Oh dear... even the sky is involved! I wonder if there is a rainbow up there? I wouldn't be able to tell... and that is most distressing...

Research is definitely in order! (That's detective-speak for... don't have a clue!). Er... if anyone you know... saw anything... or has any clues (or ideas)... please leave your comments below!

  1. YEAH! We've been waiting for a Sherlock Sandy episode! Ben suggests checking to make sure the button on your seKretary's phone is switched from B&W to color. Or, clearly, there is not enough honey and cookies in your house---that sure can turn a day to gray! We can't wait for part 2!

  2. I think you go to the local Starbucks, get a hot chocolate and eavesdrop on the conversations to see if anyone knows anything about the greyness. Since you are at Starbucks you should probably get a scone as well.

    1. Hmmm... good idea. I take it that this greyness is not affecting your neck of the woods? Hmm....

    2. Hmm, we kind of have Greyness in Oregon for 4 months out of the year.
      Although today, my roommate drove into work and the sky was greyer than normal.

      By the way, I forgot to wish you a happy Victoria Day. Do people across Canada get the day off or just people who live in Victoria?

    3. Hmm... greyness encroaching up on Oregon (another note in the notebook).

      Yes, we had a holiday on Victoria Day! I think it is to commemorate the birthday of Queen Victoria (or death day). I got to go to Vancouver that weekend! I was going to post pictures but this Grey Days Mystery has pushed all that aside!

  3. OH NO SANDY!! HOW TERRIBLE!! THIS IS AWFUL!!

    I think you should buy a box of MAGIC CRAYONS (note: they are different from a normal box of crayons). You are more likely to find them in a shady back alley deal. Then take your magic crayons and get to work!

    1. It's tragical Ajdin! The bees can't find the flowers because everything is just... grey! I will have to see if I can find some Magic Crayons...

    2. OH NO!! THE BEES CAN'T FIND THE FLOWERS!! OH NO!! NO HONEY!! OH NO!!

      (By the way Sherlock Sandy, where is your magnifying glass? Every great detective needs a magnifying glass...)

    3. I know - this is getting more serious by the moment!

      Magnifying glasses don't appear to come in my size... I will have to see if I can find a substitute!

      Delete
    4. I will! I can't imagine what would happen if this spread across the border and out east!

    5. OH NO!!!

      THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME...

    6. Oh dear... I hope you're not the first casualty due to a grey day! As the Brits would say... Keep Calm and Beary On!

  4. Oh my. My human suggests you may need to call up Rainbow Brite--whoever that is--to inject some color back into the world. Good luck!
