You know, Fraser, when they offered me this assignment, they made it sound kind of normal. They say, “Hey, Ray, here’s a chance to start over, ditch the past.” “What’s the catch?” I say. “Oh, your partner’s Canadian.” Canadian? I got nothing against Canadians, except for the time when they won the World Series. But at no time did they say, “you’ll be working with a Mountie who’s got a wolf that’s a florist”.
