...MEANWHILE BACK AT VON ICE ENTERPRISES...PRIVATE EYE & "THE BABY" WIN RADIO CONTEST TO VISIT SQUIRREL SANCTUARY IN NORTHERN ALBERTA...
It's a typical early morning at Von Ice Enterprises, Private Eye reviews his schedule which includes Elvis Impersonation Rehearsals and a possible glimpse of backyard wildlife here and there...when suddenly a radio announcement on WOOF-FM catches Private Eye's attention:
Hello Canines...I've got a live one for ya... Dreaming of the time again when squirrels will frequent your backyard? Don't wait till Spring...Call in now for the chance to win "two free tickets to Squirrel Sanctuary"...That's right Canines...You heard me correctly...Be the 500th caller in this morning, when the lines open, and win a free trip for two to the secret Squirrel Sanctuary located in Northern Alberta. Trip includes private limo service with champagne and an open sunroof for wildlife viewing along the way. Of course, you and your lucky guest will be blindfolded once we reach the vicinity of Squirrel Sanctuary as its location is secret. Once there, you will be treated to an unobstructed view of squirrels in their natural habitat and will be able to tour a museum of squirrel paraphernalia. There will be a steak BBQ where you will be presented with a good steak bone for your limo ride back home. Do not delay any further, Canines. Lines are now open...
Private Eye heads for the telephone and starts dialing...After busy signals and hitting redial for 1 hour...a voice comes on the line:
"Well a big congratulations to you, you are our 500th caller! And what is your name?"
Private Eye starts to hyperventilate with excitement. ("The Baby" brings him a paper bag to breathe into before he begins to see stars.) He collects himself just in time to respond to the radio announcer:
"I'm Private Eye Malhaven Von Ice."
Radio Announcer: Well, you're one lucky Canine! We'll be sending the limo around for you shortly. This trip is one of those last minute dealies, so be waiting curbside with your guest and the driver will be there within the hour. Remember to pack lightly, bring a camera and stay on the line to give us your exact location for pick-up.
PRIVATE EYE AND "THE BABY" PACK UP THEIR BELONGINGS, GO OUT TO THE CURB AND ARE WHISKED AWAY BY PRIVATE LIMO TO THE SECRET "SQUIRREL SANCTUARY"... AFTER THEY PULL AWAY FROM VON ICE ENTERPRISES, A FRANTIC CALL FROM CLOON COMES IN...BUT ALAS, IT IS TOO LATE. PRIVATE EYE HAS ALREADY LEFT THE CITY.
...THE SAGA CONTINUES...
