I trust your uncle is in good health. (That's how my grandmother says I should start letters. Only she calls 'em "missives" -- what's that all about?)

Guess what -- me and Vinnie solved the Mystery of Sleepy Woods! It turns out Old Man Bradshaw was dressing up as a werewolf to try to trick Mrs. Nicholson out of her secret family cake recipe. He said he'd have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for our meddling.

My dad's trying to get me into stealing model airplanes, but I don't see the point. What a weird hobby! I'd rather be arranging model boats.
