here's a guy from Helen McCoy who didn't give any address. I have a game. I have a game idea for I have an idea for a game. Ill take two people each of you take you have to strong as I have and then put them in a little pile in front of you know where I go try to move to the side by sacking them up with another straw. The first one to move to the side wins. Nobody Do you get a subtle way. But you've got to take one straw out you know hey bro you would be too easy. So you got to suck them up and put them away. I want them to raise me like that. Oh you get a pile of
little things you do and they're doing on this one. So yeah I was actually there I was with them in piles. Yes really. Yes. Yes. This was like this. OK that will. Be the direction. OK. Yeah right. I mean look. At it now. Yes right. Come on. Yeah but. This is. Not even that.
If you have a game that you don't have to buy Senate and maybe playing it cool. OK. I live in Sky call Nish. It's a small town in the Cascade Mountains and still Washington populations around 250. Scott Connors used to be a big town they were laying tracks out here. For the
trains. That now only freight trains go through. And just the workmen and engineers live and now. This is a general store. It carries pots and milk and dairy goods and nails and painting goods groceries now. It's the only store in town. Also. There's there's a. Fire Station the last time they used the fire trucks was Burra water find out in the street. Theater here they had to close it down they didn't get in the business. They had some pretty good films or the location. On the school it was built and I think 1930 knowing they're not
very many people in high school there's only around 50. That. Just seemed like a basket had a vacuum they were right in there is what they tried to do with their cried foul Johnny bashed out and Ron if you had some real characters and one of them Joe Wallner he goes dog sky co-ownership basketball games and when they got out there on the floor they break my rule whenever anybody talks to Jill. All he ever talks about is basketball on fact you never even started talking about basketball. All my life he said. He said. We have two taverns in town on the morning right here. Sweet peas it draws in most of the hippies and skiers in the wintertime.
And then over here is a whistling post. It draws in the town people and a few outsiders and it does a real good business. Most of them in town work for the longing in the street because there's so much force land and stay Washington. My dad he works on a caterpillar either building road or clearing land for logging companies. When I get older I'd like to work for the for service it sounds like fun working out in the woods and doing different things you know like surveying road jobs and that. Would be sort of. The first time I've ever had a job in summer. I'd go to the chalet and
I'd clean out the garbage cans in the back of the chalet put miners in. I get a free meal and then I get paid. There's always something to do here and sky. Skokomish river it goes right down through the town and really a great place to go in or to Maine. Because that build means it is not as many people as there is in the big city. There are rivers here fishing in it.
This is by Valerie Morgan of Lynnwood Washington. The case of the locked room. Just as John Archer reached his apartment door he heard the tinkling of broken glass. What has happened. He asked himself as you ran to unlock the door. His cat tom brushed against you and welcome. But John Archer had no time for welcome news there on the floor. Molly and Ben. Thank
goodness they're still breathing. Said John. Their lives can be saved. Poor Molly. Poor Ben. Who could have done this dastardly deed. The windows were locked. The only other way to get in was through the door. The only key to the door was in John Archer's pocket. Nevertheless the other lay on the living room floor amid broken glass in a pool of water. Yet John knew at once who the criminal was. Can you figure out what happened. And how. Stay tuned. Brain I think. I. Remember the case of the locked room. I have the solution. The deed was done by Tom member John Archer's
cat. The victims were goldfish. The sound of the breaking glass was that of the fishbowl. The water on the living room floor was water from the fishbowl.

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
