    The original Falling Waters house designed by Wright was plagued with problems despite and because of its unique design. The house was saturated with mildew and mold because of the humidity and water underneath. Ground shifting and poor structural design caused the cantilevers to begin failing almost immediately even before the tenants moved in. Over the years, repairs and reconstruction have cost more than the original house.

    And does that chopper pilot look like Dyne O’Matick to anyone else?

    Don’t even have a guess where this is going from here. Neither Jimmy Choo Shooz nor Ted Tellum is a sympathetic character.

    I’ll grant that Tellum is not a very likable character. But in this instance, he is completely an innocent bystander. I’m not even sure he knows what he is involved in. After all, he pulled his boat over to help a guy and was greeted by a gun. Despite his obnoxious personality, in this instance I have sympathy for Tellum and hope he is rescued by Tracy.

    (and I don’t know what happened to the gold).


    If the lake drains, the may find the gold from the first robbery as well as Jimmy’s gold.

    Funny poem, Avenger09. Crude but effective in the vernacular. Well done.

    Another gem for a Sunday morning, Pequod. Sort of reminds you of when the Chicago River drained into all of the basements in the loop. They may even find the gold from the first robbery once the lake drains.

    The salt miners could strike gold from below before Jimmy digs down from above.


    Or…as nemo5012 speculated the salt miners could create a hole that causes water to rush in and drain the lake.


    Several years ago, contractors setting a pylon in the Chicago River accidentally punched the pylon through the bottom of the river into a tunnel system running under the river. Water rushed in flooding all of the basements of the entire Chicago downtown area. So nemo’s speculation is not so far fetched.

    Although Tellum has been in the Tracyverse for a long time, he has never been a particularly sympathetic character. Collins killed him off in one of his Dick Tracy novels but that has never been a part of the official canon. Could Tellum be en route to buy the farm?

    Your return to poetry is welcomed. I found today’s entry very funny.

    Another humorous way to start my day. Thanks again, Pequod, for all your wit.
