“Do tell.”

Devil Track Trading Banner Previously: Boomer and Mac stayed on the road—blocking the pursuers, “We’re gonna be a bit outnumbered, Mac.”

“That means it’s fair fight.”

“Yep,” Boomer agreed, chambering his Farkleberry-Henry .44-40, a fair fight.”

“Here they come—don’t be scared little-buddy, I’ll protect you,” Mac rumbled as he chambered his Farkleberry-Henry .44-40.

Sometimes—It is best to start over—a RARE Sunday post

When I designed the most recent Danger Bay Airfield—I got a bit carried-away and made a much larger airfield than a small area  such as Moosehead County could possibly support.

The rest of the pilots arrived at the airfield

I got a bit carried-away

I attempted to use a photograph I had taken of Lake Superior and modifying it to “look” like the backside of the South Bluff. Continue reading

Devil Track Trading BannerPreviously: Silverthorns are skilled warriors, not simply skilled businessmen and women, after all.

He climbed up on Fleetfoot, his sentient steed, and with his men, headed towards Williams’ Station, where he’d heard there was a new army outpost, “Let’s go, Fleetfoot, quickly, quietly and carefully—for I distrust this LaFarge.”

With the speed of sentient horses, they quickly put several miles between them and any possible pursuers.

There were pursuers—and others already in front of Brave Hawk and his men. Continue reading

Devil Track Trading Banner Previously: “I think we should solve the murder of J. T. Goodfellow,” Chris suggested.

“I don’t know if he’s dead,” Cujo replied, “He may well be—but I can’t determine that. You must find out, as there are certain things I cannot do, and that is one of them.”

“We’ll find out, dear Cujo,” Sarah assured the Beagamute, “I’m so glad you are back.”

With that Cujo and Karma disappeared.

Big Mac rumbled with a wicked grin, “Let’s ride!” Continue reading

On the trail—again!

Devil Track Trading BannerSeason 11—Adventure 2—Devil Track Trading—Episode 1: Chris, Sara, Boomer, Carl, Hiram, Jr., Buttons, Daisy, Pepper and Flutters faded-out from Silverthorn’s Café (Jay Cooper requested the weekend off to fly a chartered flight to Canada for some well-heeled fishermen and Cujo, long ago, granted the request), and found themselves on the trail to Devil Track Trading our heroes were lamenting their diminishing number, “This is not good. Here we are closing-in on those responsible for a possible murder—and yet one more has been granted leave…”

“But, Boomer,” Sarah replied, “We really need that income. During our time in the 21st Century we had no charters to fly. You agree, don’t you Carl?”

“I do. Business has not been great this year. With some luck, we may be able to accomplish enough this 19th Century visit to earn a weekend or two in the 21st.”

“Y’know, I see no reason why Cujo can’t bring us to and from the past instantly,” Chris suggested, “After all, time is fluid—right?”

“Normally, yes,” Boomer replied, “But Cujo is still engaged in battle with that sabre toothed oversized Bobcat.”

“Does that mean we could be stuck here?”

“It could have, until just now,” a familiar and much-missed voice replied as Cujo and Karma Big Feathers appeared.

“Master!” Flutters exclaimed

Master!” Flutters exclaimed.

Cujo!” the balance of the humans and dog-people exclaimed in near-unison.

“I know you would all like to spend some time at home in the 21st Century,” Cujo arfed, “But you are needed here more. The future of Williams’ Station is in deep jeopardy. The trouble is—I’m not exactly certain what action you should take—my battle with the sabre toothed bobcat has affected my abilities, at least for the time being.”

“I think we should solve the murder of J. T. Goodfellow,” Chris suggested.

“I don’t know if he’s dead,” Cujo replied, “He may well be—but I can’t determine that. You must find out, as there are certain things I cannot do, and that is one of them.”

“We’ll find out, dear Cujo,” Sarah assured the Beagamute, “I’m so glad you are back.”

With that Cujo and Karma disappeared.

Mandy’s New World

Family Ties BannerPreviously: Mandy was quiet and finally fell asleep on Sandra’s lap. Sandra wondered what the little girl had been through in the months she had been in the home. While the people seemed kind, those places always lacked for money. Other children can be cruel in the circumstances they find themselves in and take it out on other children.

If they had not been able to find Mandy a foster home there must be a lack of people willing to take children. Sandra had also heard horror stories about some the homes that were willing to take the children.

She was just thankful she had Mandy with her now.

They pulled into Danger Bay quite late, so a little sleep and things will all be sorted out. Continue reading

A New Road To Travel

Family Ties BannerPreviously: She went alone to see her. She was in the dorm like room small beds lined either side of the long room. 

There was no one else in the room when Sandra walked in. She had her back to her and she looked so small and alone. Sandra’s heart broke. 

“Mandy?”

Mandy turned to look at her confused at first and then her face lite up and she started running straight into Sandra’s open arms.

Will she want to go to Danger Bay? Continue reading

Can She Go?

Family Ties BannerPreviously: “Let’s go,” Sarah agreed.

Heading to Duluth, Sandra put her thoughts to words, “Do you think the State would let me be her foster Mom? I know I am single but I have a job and a roof over my head. I think Danger Bay is a great place to raise kids and I think you guys would reference me wouldn’t you?”

Chris and Sarah both bobbed their heads up and down.

“I think it is a great idea” said Sarah.   

As they pulled-up in front of the house, Sandra crossed her fingers and said a small prayer as they went to the front door.

A kindly looking woman greeted them, “How may I help you ladies?”

“We are here to take Mandy Riley to a new home,” said Sandra.

Will it happen? 

I hope so! Continue reading

Where Is She?

Family Ties BannerPreviously: Sandra said, “It is good to see you again, we were just out at the charred mess of a house. We stopped by the little farm stand to see Mandy when we pulled in the house was boarded up; a ‘For Sale’ sign was in front of the house. Do you know what happened to the family?”

Ruth gave a sad nod, “The family was killed in a car accident about 9 months back. So sad everyone around here was shocked.”

Sandra gasped, “I never got to tell Mandy thank you!” Continue reading

A Little Information Please

Family Ties BannerPreviously: “Wow,” said Sarah “This looks strange, I wonder what has happened to the family. This kind of thing is happening all across the US, people just cannot make ends meet like they used to.  Teresa our wonderful Realtor in Danger Bay can tell you all about that fact.”

“I noticed a small diner just down the road,” Chris said, “I bet they might be able to tell us what has gone on here.”

“I have been in there before, sometimes during our shopping trips we would stop. The gal that owns it is always there so I would say we could ask her.” Sandra said

The girls headed down the road to the River Inn Bar and Grille.  They all hoped they would be able to find out information on Mandy. Continue reading
