The Old Man had left a little note, in Mrs CJ’s handwriting, on the computer-table. He said he had received the note just recently. It read:
Dear Mr Oldman,
As I said here is our telephone number 555555 should you ever need any help at any time please do not hesitate to call us.
We will be away from 8.12.05 [sic] to 22.12.05 [sic] inclusive.
Mr & Mrs CJ
What puzzled me was whether the note did date from 2005, or whether Mrs CJ had made a mistake with the dates.
There was no sign of Mr or Mrs CJ that weekend.
