Blue How Are Ya
Sal Thethicktorian's boss, Goo Rant, appreciating Sal's derring-do, while at the same time hating her spunk, gives her a 55-year-old cold case. Missing person. No body. No suspect.
While Goo props up his feet and pours a double shot of desk-whiskey, lamenting that he will not be invited to one of Sal's dinner parties to enjoy three servings of Veal Prince Orloff this week...Sal jets off to Hawaii to track down some leads.
Sal discovers that Diala Moveall was last seen in the company of Pelvis Messily, an army veteran known for bursting into song, who couldn't help falling in love with her. Rumor has it that Pelvis was called for active duty on the day he planned to propose to Diala at the blue cottage at the end of the island.
Is nursing-home-bound Pelvis only pretending to have Alzheimer's? What will Sal find at the cottage? (147 words)
