No cinnamon this time, but there is a strange gnome, a parrot sous-chef, and a clueless inspector who fears Frankie will solve the mystery before he gets his first clue. Enjoy the fun. (Stay out of the pool.)

If not … but, let’s not go there.

Tomorrow, I will pick up where I had to stop and bring…
