Today thru Sunday I'm going to be leaving you some mysteries to solve. There's no giveaway involved. I just thought it would be fun to stretch our minds.

Try solving these without cheating (Goggle 😉).
Leave your answers in the comments. 
I post the answers the following day and your guesses the following day. 

Have fun!


One winter day, there was a man standing in the middle of someone’s front yard. The person stayed there for several weeks without moving and the owner of the yard didn’t mind. Eventually the man left. 

Who was he?


A man was found dead with a cassette recorder in one hand and a gun in his other hand. When the police came in, they immediately pressed the play button on the cassette. They heard the man say, “I have nothing else to live for. I can’t go on.” Then there was the sound of a gunshot. After listening to the cassette tape, the police knew that it was not a suicide, but a homicide. 

How did they know?

A couple went on holiday for three weeks. They carefully locked their house, and had a neighbor check on the place while they were gone. When they returned the neighbor told them the only thing that happened while they were gone was a power failure that lasted for 36 hours. Upon getting settled back in the house, the wife was distressed to learn that her fine jewelry, which she had hidden before leaving on holiday, was all missing. She had hidden the jewelry in what she thought was a very safe place. She was not robbed. 

What happened to her jewelry?

Friday's Answers

#1 -  He stood on large slabs of ice to reach the fan and put his head in the noose. As the ice melted, the noose tightened, and eventually he was left hanging. Thus, the only other thing in the room was a puddle of water.

#2 - Dan is an executioner by profession. His wife had been sentenced to death and he was the one to carry out the sentence. It was completely legal for him to do so.

#3 - Since it's a lady's bathroom, and people would notice a man entering. So number 3, the only lady in the restaurant is the killer.
