The Mystery of Crystal Cove....
Velma was feeling rather 'otherwise' as the team set out on its latest mission.
While Scooby Doo was going for his morning stroll he noticed the towns formaldahyde supply had been stolen! *enter oohs and ahhhs*
Scooby called Shaggy and Velma gave Daphne a ring and then they all paused.... Where was Freddie? (The sign reads 'Freddie was unable to join us as he is getting his hair cut').
Shaggy with his best pal Scooby! Buds for life
Daphne, loves the camera. Velma would much rather be solving the case.
Daphne was happy to discover that Freddie had accidently put the formaldahyde in the Mystery Inc. club house cupboard instead of in the fridge! Oh geeez silly Freddie.
And so the mystery was solved and their bellies were filled with candies...

I am very heartbroken today, a young man with mental health issues has been charged with his fathers murder and the attempted murder of his mother. I knew him, I cut his hair and we laughed and joked about life and it truly breaks my heart. Mental illness is something even the most intellectuals in the field will never understand, my prayers and concerns are going out to him and his family members.
As much as my current situation feels crippling and horrible, I feel blessed to have the people, friends and family in my life and especially my children. I am grateful for my own mental health and know that my situation of pain is temporary whereas his and his families is now everlasting.
A very sad Chelsea....
