Spooky Monday Mystery...!

You just have to love the fact that there are so many good mysteries out there that haven't ever been solved.

It's a little comforting to know that even the "know-it-alls" in politics don't have a reasonable explanation for stories like this, know what I mean?

The Lead Masks Case

The Lead Masks Case refers to the discovery of the bodies of two electronic technicians in Brazil in 1966. The bodies were found in a field wearing impermeable coats and lead masks (usually used to protect against radiation – pictured above). Even stranger was the discovery of a small notebook beside the bodies with signs and numbers, and a letter in which was written: “16:30 be at the agreed place. 18:30 swallow capsules, after effect protect metals wait for the mask sign”. A waitress who was the last to see them alive said that one of them looked very nervous and kept glancing at his watch. There were no obvious injuries on the bodies. Gracinda Barbosa Cortino de Souza and her children, who lived next to the hill where the men died, claimed that they had seen a UFO flying over the spot at the exact moment the detectives believed the two men must have died.


Don't forget that Halloween is right around the corner, so stock up on goodies for the kids, OK?

Let's have our coffee on the patio on the patio this morning. It's cool, but the Sun is shining!

Wonder if anyone ever tried to solve this mystery? Lots of strange happenings out there!
It's still pretty warm outside @ 53, but starting to getting windy! We are hunkered down waiting for Sandy.

Quite an intriguing story, HJ, and certainly timely now. Enjoyed the Sunday toons and the previous post on the green twins. Currently, here on the VA eastern shore we are being rained on from the superstorm Sandy with bustier winds to arrive later today. Hopefully, the storm will not cause as much damage as predicted to others along the east coast, but we are in hunker down mode now.

That's a creepy one. They physical evidence is one of the things that kicks it up a notch.

Those look like eye covers. If they had them on, at least they didn't see their demise coming. . . (Grin).

Mysterys are always fun.

Phyllis and Momlady stay safe hope the storm is not as bad as they are predicting.

Coffee on the patio it is.

Hey Phyllis...
You take care, my friend. Wouldn't want anything to go bad for ya!

Strange things do seem to abound sometimes!

Thanks for dropping by today!

Hey Beatrice...
Here's hoping that things don't get a lot worse for you there!

Damp around the edges can be expected this time of year, but more than that and things get bad very quickly!

Be safe and thanks for the visit this morning!

Hey Sixbears...
Having some sort of hard evidence always adds to the mystery!

Gotta love all these crazy stories!

Thanks, my friend, for coming over today! Be safe!

Hey Dizzy...
Let's hope that was the case! Still, I can't help but wonder just what happened to them!

Thanks, buddy, for the visit this morning!

Hey Jo...
We all are hoping that the folks on the eastern coast fair well despite this storm!

A few prayers sure couldn't hurt!

Thanks, sweetie, for your visit today!
