MISSING MONETS

Associated Press
Washington, DC

The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC has reported two Monet paintings missing. The original Banks of the Seine and The Houses of Parliament were replaced by paint by number versions. The switch went undetected until last night when a bored security guard examined the paintings close up. Authorities are baffled on how this heist was pulled off. Security cameras had been shut off and appear to have paw prints on the lenses.

Museum custodians were questioned and only reported they noticed a decrease in mice in the past few days.

I think Boo's pet human will love the way the Banks of the Seine will look in her living room. What a great birthday gift.

The House of Parliament goes well in my office.....

Wonder if they will notice that the Dega is gone too?
xoxoxo

Wow, you guys are mousing there. Excellent choice of work.

I wonder who took the paintings?

I'm not sure she's heard the news yet -- she LOVES the painting! I think she thinks we got it at Target.

Fascinating development...! The plot thickens... I wonder why I am thinking of Cat Burglars...? *smile*!

That's a great choice for a birthday present. It was good of you to catch the mice in the museum, too. That makes it more of a trade.

Well, I for one am very unhappy that I don't have any new artwork for my boudoir. Judd, the Stoopid Wonder Puppy spent too much time looking for a painting of dogs playing poker, I couldn't lift a thing! I'm keeping him home next time, no matter what Dude says.
