Pat Barnhart, Welcome to Your Player Page!

Pat, the Supper Sleuths formally thank you for planning to attending a first-rate county fair party!  First of all, the upcoming party at the Hickleberry County Fair is guaranteed to be a night to remember.  Many of your supposed superiors are going to be murder suspects also, so make sure you look your best, considering you may be up for a job promotion after tonight!   Wouldn’t it be nice for someone else to have to do the dirty work for once?  Of course, you’re so gifted at your job, we wouldn’t dream of getting in the way of it if you want to stay!  However, be on your guard, since irregardless of your resume highlights, this night is important for your future. Below is your invitation, in case you need a reminder.  We know you usually don’t get to hang out with the local celebrities, but that night we need all the sleuths we can get!

You will play the role of Pat Barnhart

Full Name: Patricia Jean Barnhart (but I like to shorten it to “Cowpat”)

Favorite Animal: “Hello? Cows.”

Favorite Vacation Destination: “A ranch where I get to milk cows.  Wait, that’s what I do now.  Guess I’m living the dream!”

Favorite Color: “Black and white spotted.”

Favorite Food:  “Nothing hits the spot like grass-fed beef with a tall glass of warm, freshly-squeezed cow’s milk.”

Favorite Song: “The symphony of barn animals bleating, clucking, mooing, and braying. That and Old MacDonald Had a Farm.”

Your role will require some humility and a fun-loving spirit because Pat Barnhart is as ruddy and fun as a hot summer day is long.  This rough and tumble woman was made for the outdoors and adventure, so you are not ruffled at all by this night, and should help keep the gang laughing and thinking about the simple things in life.  Pat is the Canterway Stable’s ranch hand, and, how shall we put it delicately, handler of biohazardous materials (aka horse poop).  Pat is best friends with janitor Gus Lavoni, who may be present tonight.

Costume Suggestions

Wear old farm type of clothing, such as overalls and or a flannel shirt.  Your hair should be in a pony tail (no pun intended) if possible or under a baseball cap.  You should carry a huge brush in your pocket (if it’s clean, you could go around offering to brushing people’s hair) .  Bring some chewing gum and pretend its chewing tobacco (‘baccy).  If you feel bold, wipe some chocolate, grease or dark brown makeup on your face to look like you work a tough outdoor job with horses.  Be elusive about what the brown substance is if you want.  Another option:  If you can’t stand the rugged look, try squeaky clean, wide eyed, stable girl with overalls and painted on freckles, and go by “Patty” instead of “Cowpatty.”
