clue #9 – where in the world is colleen?


I’m keeping today’s clue in the family, much like clue #4. My nephew Matthew, not to be confused with my SON Matthew, has clue #9! He’s a relatively new blogger, and when he begged me to allow him post a clue, how could I say no? Matthew is only 7 years younger than I am, so growing up we were more like sister and brother than aunt and nephew. And by “sister and brother” I mean the kind of siblings who fight over the space in the backseat, and hit each other when no one is looking. Or sometimes, when people ARE looking, which normally got me in trouble, since Matthew was younger than I was. Man, he was a little shit sometimes though!

He’s a big boy now, and we never fight anymore. Isn’t that nice?

The clues so far:

Clue #1
Clue #2

    Hmm. The OLDER kid getting in trouble because of something the YOUNGER kid did? JUST because they are older and should know better? Sounds familiar! I seem to recall getting into LOTS of hot water for that same reason! LOL!
