Normally we have a Phunny for you on Phriday. This week we have a Quandary. We may have mentioned that the Mill across the river from us in under renovation. Strange sounds emanate from the site all day long. Workers in Tyvek (Haz-Mat) suits scurry about the place and across the roof. Some days we get to watch the big crane come and lift things on and off the roof. But this has us a little baffled causing the quandary we are in.
This is what we saw on Friday of the 4th of July weekend. YES, it is a step ladder flying from the flag pole. The question was WHY!!! There are ladders all over the building. I doubt that step ladder thieves would bother to go all the way up to the roof to steal this one. the local Police have really cracked down on the local Step Ladder Thieves. So why? Possibly the symbol of a new teenage anarchy gang? Millennials trying to climb the "Step Ladder of Success"? Or disgruntled parents denying a young couple "the Step Ladder to the Stars"?
BUT that was not the end of this silly sage. On Monday, Independence Day, the scene had changed. Over night, under cover of darkness, someone, Patriots we suppose, came and removed the step ladder. Since we have not gotten an APB on this mystery we figure it was not a crime. Step Ladder theft has dropped dramatically here. In fact the next object we saw on the flag pole was so much more appropriate. A flag on the flagpole. And not just an ordinary one. This one has gold fringe around the edges.
The Quandary is WHY the ladder???????
Let us hear from you loyal readers. Any hypothesis is welcome. Conspiracies, if interesting, are also OK.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend...... Grenville
