|Our heartfelt thanks for sharing so much MJ love last week and for lending your support to gulf_aid_now and
PFlag. We hope you'll continue to bid on auction items and send those purple rhino vgifts, since charity doesn't end with a rainbow parade.
Frank was so inspired that he took a much-needed break to whip up his signature toasted pants nachos. Now he's dying to find out what you
do to escape from the workaday grind. Tell him how you keep those creative juices flowing, and he'll twirl you a spinning pinwheel!

Who killed Alpha D. Stein?
When we last joined Frank & Meme, they had just hired pre-eminent forensic pathologist, Dr. Tiger Sagitarius, in their quest to determine who killed Alpha D. Stein, pomeranian at law. After running a battery of tests, Dr. Sagitarius had reached the following conclusions:
As Dr. Nan gathered Alpha's possessions, Dr. Sagitarius inquired, "Have you notified the next of kin?"
Dr. Nan strained to catch her breath, clasping her hooves so tightly her pads were tinged pink. "Y-y-yes, I have."
"And when will Alpha's family arrive? I must ask them a few questions."
"They, w-w-well, I m-m-mean, ... I am already here... I ... am Alpha's n-n-next of kin. We are... w-w-were legally s-s-separated when she died," she wheezed through convulsive tears. Excuse me, I h-h-ave to go." She rushed out, tailed by Dr. Fox and Nurse Chi Wa-Wa.
"Ah-hah!!" The jackal cackled. "Dr. Nan was still married to Alpha, despite her impending nuptials with Dr. Fox. That means she was the beneficiary of Alpha's estate. It seems we have our murderer!"
"Indeed," Dr. Sagitarius eyes grew wide, gazing glassy-eyed at a poster of a human infant giggling in a bath of bubbles, inscribed: 'i farts in yor gen’ral direkshun!'
"It was Dr. Nan!" Meme yawped. "I KNEW she was a wolf in sheep's clothing!"
Sagitarius growled his dissent. "I believe there were three culprits in this heinous murder. I must gather dispositive proof before I announce my conclusion!"
Frank and Meme are sick with anticipation. Tell them your crime theory, and they'll send you a bouquet of flowers to show their appreciation.
Thanks for joining us. We'll see you next week!
