Just the Facts: Checkpoint

Calling all cars, calling all cars...Detectives are asked to check in with Headquarters. Please report progress. Headquarters out.

So....the beginning of July came and went in a Montana-vacation-blur and then my laptop died. Finally got it back today and it's time to see how our detective challengers are doing with their notebooks. Back in the fall when I put together the latest version of the Vintage Mystery Challenge, I randomly selected items from the notebooks for our checkpoints. Here are the categories for our second checkpoint (January - July 25, no books posted after this checkpoint goes live):

WHO: Retired from OR In the Armed Services
WHAT: Animal in the title
WHEN: During a trip/cruise/vacation/etc.
WHERE: In a locked room
HOW: Death by strangulation
WHY: An author you've never tried

You may enter once for every item checked off in your notebooks. Both Golden & Silver cards count. Please use the linky below and enter your items under the following "Name":

Your name (Category) Card 
 ~Example: Bev (Armed Services) Silver

If you do not have a blog or other way to link up below, then you may use the above format for all of your items and list them in the comments below. You will also earn one entry for every item.

The linky will be open until midnight on Wednesday, August 1. Sometime on Thursday, I will pull out the Custom Random Number Generator and select a winner. Good luck!

Hi Bev - Thanks for running this reading challenge as I've enjoyed tailoring my reading to it. I hope I'm not being cheeky, but you did say that I had won the prize for this checkpoint and that you'd be in touch with more details, but I haven't heard anything more. Thanks, Countdown John.

John: I sent a message to the email provided on your checkpoint link-up back on August 2. If you will send me an email at phryne1969 AT, I'll be happy to send you the prize list to choose from.
