    Not quite uncommon. Richard Feynman, was known during Project Manhattan as a safe cracker himself. And according to his autobiography many would write down their combination or simply use theirs, their spouses or their kids birthdates.

    I hope his aunt is a better baker than he is a detective.

    In small bowl, beat 1/2 cup of water and remaining ingredients together.
    Add to first mixture and blend with fork until dry ingredients are moistened.

    As a programmer and computer expert for over 40 years, that would have been my first choice if I had to hack the password, or crack the safe.

    I have the numbers written in different parts of area in no order. Also they are not readily seen. I only have to remember the order and where they are. Sounds weird but it works.

    Yes a bit too obvious for would-be thieves. Why not the six letters in the last line? Or the first letter in each of the six lines in the chart? Just as easy to remember, but a little harder to crack.

    But Aunt Bertha lied. He’s just helping to rip off the eye doc.

    I’m worried about the dog. Frequently they are trained purse snatchers in the Inspector’s world. Perhaps he was there to consume space in what was otherwise a vapid strip.
