He seems like a good kid.

Lieutenant Columbo: You know, the wife and I love watching television with a nice bowl of chili and saltines and ketchup.

Lieutenant Columbo: She hated it? How about chili with some chunky meat?
LarryMy wife was a vegan, Lieutenant.

Lieutenant Columbo: I see. Sorry to bother you. (starts to exit)
LarryGood day, Lieutenant.

Anyone with any info about the whereabouts of GiGi please contact:


  1. My parents loved Columbo! Thanks for the flashback. And you have his affects down pat! Nicely done... hope you are found soon...

    1. GiGi's parents loved Columbo too. I hope he finds GiGi soon too. Thank you for helping to find GiGi.

    2. If GiGi turns up, congratulate her on being nominated in VegNews. I voted for her!

    3. Thank you from the bottom of GiGi's family's heart :)

  2. So who made the recipe if GiGi is missing? Did Colombo make it and send back photos?

    1. Yes, Veggie Amanda Columbo followed Lary's recipe instructions and whipped up this recipe for his wife.

  3. VeggieAmanda makes a good point! This is all looking very suspicious... I'm wondering if Jerry locked her in a steamer trunk as payback for all of the years they spent doing ventriloquist tours... Who's the dummy now?

    1. Bahaha. Cadry, Jerry Loves his MOMMY! but true those tours could have worn his brain out. I would give your tip to the proper authorities.

  4. The ketchup thing is weird. But the Columbo thing is great.

    1. My mommy hated ketchup. Hope Mr. Columbo finds her. Thank you for helping FF.

  5. i remember at saturn how gigi got a taste of ketchup and she was like 'eww'...

  6. I'm still getting over the not liking ketchup part! *gasp*
