Birch Bay, Washington
Would like to welcome and introduce Rima to my readers. I have just brought her “on board” to Hodel Investigations as my new “partner” and she will begin work on January 15, 2023. (As we all know that is a rather momentous day in the investigative history of this company.)
Rima was born and raised in the Great Northwest, in Skagit County, just fifty miles south of my new home here in Birch Bay, WA.
She’s young, but very energetic and highly motivated and will be on probation for a year as a detective trainee, but I predict she will quickly promote to Detective I.
Rima types, is fluent both in English and Spanish, super computer savvy and will initially be assigned to do background checks and newspaper archival research.
My “partner” search has been ongoing for the past year since I relocated to Birch Bay, and has finally paid off BIGTIME.
Welcome aboard “Rima. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Now let’s hit the streets. This first week you will be riding shotgun.
Here are a few recent pictures of my new partner.
First meet and introduction at Skagit Valley Humane Society this last Tuesday

One reader just commented that “Rima bears a strong resemblance to ‘Toto’ from the Wizard of Oz.” Not sure how much the cornfields of Kansas are like the Jungle Forests of Riolama, but as we can see from below photo comparisons, definitely resemblances for sure. Toto was a Cairn Terrier and Rima is believed to be a Chihuahua/Yorkshire Terrier mix known as a “Chorkie”. So, got to be at least “cousins”.
