Anyone missing a red strainer?

A few days ago Jill Thompson, from our church, happened to stop by. She brought in a red strainer she said she found on our porch.At first I thought, "Oh who was that very nice person to give me a new strainer?"

How did they know I needed one?

How did they know my old one looks like this?Then I wait, No one knows what kind of a strainer I have in my kitchen, not even Dennis. Why would they? I cook alone.

Then Den says, "Oh yeah, I saw that red strainer on our porch a few days ago."

And uh, why did he not bring it in?

Guess I have not been on the porch for a few days. My foot still hurts.

So who does this red strainer belong to and why was it left on our porch??

Den's mom, Den, and Jill T.

I have a red strainer but that is not it!

Murphy's Law will work if you adopt the red strainer and get so used to it that you can't live without it. Then, the owner will show up and remember leaving it on your porch. The mystery will then be solved! Hello to Den's mom! Love, Dad and Susan

I'm a big believer in Murphy's Law. I know that's exactly what would happen.

I hope you can figure out who left that there. Maybe one of your vegtable people?

Dennis' mom looks great.

I'd claim it was mine but I live too far away for me to have misplaced it at your house. I love the color! Oh, and I agree with Susan about Murphy's Law. That is always how it turns out.

I put the strainer there to collect tips for the kitchen staff.

It's a very nice strainer! Has anyone been in your kitchen lately when you've been using the broken strainer and noticed you needed a new one?
You'll have to do some sleuthing!
Let us know if you solve the mystery!
All the best,
