Shopping Vicariously: Nancy Drew Is Alright With Me

I don't feel like I am really making a confession here, because if you know me this should not come as a surprise. When I was younger, I wanted to be Nancy Drew. And what young girl who read about a confident teen who solved mysteries with her two best friends didn't? Nancy was great. She always looked stylish, always kept her head and taught girls everywhere such gems as:

  • When your ride is mired in mud, placing heavy burlap in front of the rear wheels and rocking the car back and forth can get you back on the road. -The Secret of Red Gate Farm
  • Moxie and a good sense of balance are essential when crawling on a roof. -The Hidden Staircase
  • When bound and gagged you can still tap out HELP in Morse code to attract attention. -The Clue of the Tapping Heels

So much to learn. In honor of my favorite gumshoe, I give you today's Shopping Vicariously, "Nancy Drew Is Alright With Me."
