    Now all Dick has to do is add it to the stamp clue!

    Yeah, Dick, we figured that out yesterday. hehe

    Aren’t we all the clever bunch! ;-) Or Stagger had a sneak peek at today’s strip. LOL

    Wow – we can actually see Dick’s pupils!
    Interesting, that his clock is almost the same time here. Meaning I should be in bed so —
    Good morning VistaBill and everyone! G’night!

    Yeah, yeah Dick, we already figured that out. Try to keep up with the audience okay?

    But the letter was written to Sparkle when she was a child. The code in the letter may indicate where Annie was not where she currently is. Wonder if Diet’s time machine might be causing temporal distortion? Perhaps Doctor Who is the next crossover aided by Doc Wonmug.

    It seems that we are a clever bunch. Our collective membership in the Crimestoppers Club is safe. Dick should figure out the stamp clue when he sees what’s at 87W 45N. It’s kind of ironic when the rare time his eyes are wide open is bedtime, but that’s what happens when you suddenly discover something.

    But the letter was written to Sparkle when she was a child.

    There is no evidence that that’s actually the case. It was only assumed to have been written to Sparkle when she was a child because of the old stamp, but the old stamp doesn’t prove when the letter was written. Old stamps are still around today. The fact that it was sent to Sunny Dell Acres might indicate that it was sent to Sparkle as a child, but addressing it to her current home would risk giving Annie away to her kidnappers. Obviously, by the fact that the letter has its true message hidden, Annie didn’t want to give away her reason for writing it.

    Got some good detectives on this board….maybe Tracy should hire some of you.

    Wow, I guess I was a couple of days early on the wide eyes thing.

    The old stamp is a clue?

    @Neil Wick

    There’s no evidence that isn’t the case, either. To paraphrase Anton Chekhov, if you put a time machine on the mantelpiece in Act 1, you’re going to have to use it by Act 3.

    Recapping yesterday, it seems that the 3-cent George Washington stamp could be a clue. There is a Washington Island right at those coordinates (rounded off to the nearest whole degree):

    The evidence that I’ve cited more than once is that there would not be postage due (in my opinion) if the stamp had been cancelled back when the postage was 3 cents (1963), because that rate would have been valid at the time it was mailed.

    It seems that there’s a time machine (although Diet declined to confirm that, saying only “heh”), but that doesn’t mean that the letter was involved in time travel.

    I’m certainly not suggesting that we won’t be using a time machine by Act 3, but I don’t think the letter is it. This is merely my opinion. We’re a long way from Act 3, with about 3 months more to this story, apparently.
