Hi Ho Silver

By Preston Bailey, roving reporter
From Heather Webber's Lucy Valentine series

Have you heard of the Lone Ranger? No, no. Not that one—that old guy from the old show with the cute horse. The new Lone Ranger. The masked man who’s throwing—literally throwing—thousands of dollars around Boston Common every few days?

He has to be crazy, right? Who throws that kind of money around? Even the Valentines, who have more money than anyone I know, wouldn’t do something so crazy. I can’t even get Oscar to give me an expense account, for crying out loud.

But I digress.

I’m on a hunt. Who is this man, the Lone Ranger? Why is he throwing money around? How does he keep disappearing without anyone knowing? I intend to find out. What a career coup that would be. A banner headline. A huge byline. National headlines. Maybe even a few TV interviews. I can see myself on TV, can’t you?

Don’t get me wrong—I’m not giving up my quest on finding out all the Valentine secrets (they're still hiding something, I just know it), but for now…I have a man to unmask. Wish me luck!

  4. Preston,

    Sometimes secrets are best left unrevealed. As the famous movie line says, can you take the truth?

  7. I wish I caught some of the money. Lucy and Suz both snagged some, but I was too busy chasing the story! I'm still working on Oscar about a company credit card, though...

  9. I would concentrate on the Lone Ranger. The Valentines aren't ready to tell their secrets. Hope you catch some that money.

  10. Ahh....Preston..good luck to you. Please scamper off to the unmasking and let Lucy get some work done.
    I kind of like the mystery of the Masked Man. You don't think the world needs a wee bit of that? Would that you could let the mystery linger if you do find out who it is.....
