The guy is always gone for 7 years but when he gets home she doesn't recognize him because he's become a seal. Finally, he shows her his half of a golden ring that they' cut in half before he left to swim half way 'round the damn world to a place near Detroit called SOUL SCARY. He had grabbed the ring when they were once riding on a merry-go-round in Coney Island when they had been there singin' and drinkin' and visiting with Jack & Woody & Billy Faier & Frank Hamilton and Guy Carawan and a baby named Arlo. (No proper name for a kid I'm thinking.) The seal shows her his and she shows him hers. (THE RING--you guys have filthy minds.)He takes their kid for a swim and her new guy is a harpooner for a country that STILL hunts whales and he kills them both while being harrassed by a boat from Greenpeace! Says he thought they were whales but she thinks something's fishy about that. The harpooner is attacked by a dog named Blue and he kills the dog by cutting off it's tail. A week later the ghost of the dog shows up and the harpooner and the gal take the ghost to a liquor store---'cause that's where they retail spirits!!
