I was having a leisurely dinner at my favorite sea-food restaurant, "Father Neptune's" when my friend "Starry" Starfish (you will remember him from my "Twisted Claw" story) hurried up--looking very distraught.
"Hello, Starry." I said. "Is something the matter?"
"Something certainly IS the matter!" Starry said. "You have heard no doubt, Constable, of the famous rock music group, "The Seven Sardines" ?"
"Yes, I have, though I must admit I am not overly fond of their music." I honestly replied.
ONE OF THE SARDINES IS MISSING!" Starry blurted excitedly in one breath.
