The Truth Is Pictoblogged

How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?

-Sherlock Holmes (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)

Good April Fool’s Day to all you booniverse readers out there. I was looking at my sidebar of “stuff that happened in the booniverse on this date year(s) ago” and guess what? I have a tradition! For the third year running I present to you a list of ten things that may or may not be true. As usual, sometime later I’ll post which were true and which weren’t but until then, enjoy the pretty, pretty pics of your friendly boo’s neighborhood. Oh, and you can also see how well you know the area too if you want. Special boo points to anyone getting them all right.

All right, I’ll leave you to contemplate the true or false nature of the town and send you off with a moment of Little Kitty Zen:
