BIG MAC!

Modern Lounge BannerPREVIOUSLY: “I open tomorrow morning,” Jay replied, “And experience informs me that it won’t be long after that—I will be eliminated.”

“I’m sure you’re right,” Mac replied, “WOW—have I got me a hum-dinger of a headache!”

“Why don’t you go home—so Collie can work her magic on that,” Boomer laughed. Continue reading

“Were you successful?”

Modern LoungePREVIOUSLY: Jay toured the lounge with Erik Ohara of Moosehead County Real Estate.

“It’s in good shape.”

“It is, Jay,” O’Hara replied, “The owner was incompetent, but not a slob.”

“So, it would seem, how much does he want for the place?”

“He has an offer on the place already—but is holding-out for a better offer.”

“Who’s his agent?”

“Me,” O’Hara replied, “But the buyer seems a bit (how shall I say this?) crooked.”

“It would be wrong of you accept a lower offer, then?” Jay asked.

“Yes—however if you offer a dollar more?”

“Is that ethical?”

“It’s borderline—but, if you have a standing-offer of a dollar more—what else can I do?”

Season 18, Adventure 6B, MODERN LOUNGE, Episode 8—Scene 1 … Inside the Lounge … Jay Merton met with Keller and Simpson.

“Well?” Big A asked, “Were you successful?”

“Were you successful?”

“Completely successful, Al,” Jay replied, “The deal was made, and I’m the proud owner of ‘Jay’s Lounge,’ lock, stock and barrel.”

“Perfect,” Keller said, “When do you take possession?”

“The transaction will be completed next week,” Jay replied, “I’ll take possession then.”

“Good, that should work-out very well,” Keller replied, “Right Al?”

After Jay left—the two very-bad guys both grinned from ear to ear, “How long before we eliminate Jay”

“Well, Mr. Keller—after we purchase the lounge from Jay.”

MODERN LOUNGE, Episode 8—Scene 2—the NEXT Day … The Posse met Jay in Jay’s Lounge …

“How did it go?”

 “I open tomorrow morning,” Jay replied, “And experience informs me that it won’t be long after that—I will be eliminated.”

“I’m sure you’re right,” Mac replied, “WOW—have I got me a hum-dinger of a headache!”

“Why don’t you go home—so Collie can work her magic on that,” Boomer laughed.

“I think I will,” Mac grinned as he prepared to leave, “It’s already lessoned a bit.”

“Oh GOOD!” Jay exclaimed, “We do get tired of your grumping!”

“Yeah,” Debra joined-in, “Make like a tree—and leaf-already!”

“Out—out—OUT WITH YOU!” Chris exclaimed, “What a buzz-killer you are.”

After Mac left—the remaining Possewere concerned—Mac was almost never sick. He seemed to have a stainless-steel constitution.

“Does anyone remember Mac being sick?” Boomer asked.

“You and I go back a long time,” Chris replied, “And I simply can’t remember Mac ever complaining.”

“I know I’m worried,” Jay said—summing-up everyone’s concern.

“Okay, what’s next?”

Saloon BannerPREVIOUSLY: “Great, Jay,” Mac rumbled, “When do you join them?”

“As soon as I get packed.”

“Very well,” Mac replied, “We’ll assign Flutters to watch-over you.”

“That will help, Mac,” Jay said, “Thanks.”

 “You know what?” Joey asked, “We require some time off—Simpson & Keller won’t miss us for a few days.”

“You’re right,” Mac replied, “Where?”

“21st Century Wolfwood!”

SALOON, Episode 2—Scene 3 … 21st Century Wolfwood … “So,” Chris Earp observed, “Wolfwood really exists!”

“Yes.” Joey replied, “It really exists—let me give you a tour of the cabin.”

Joey gave the Posse a complete tour of the cabin—and then set-about making one of his special dishes for lunch: “Gratis on a Portis with Escofier sauce.”

Too soon, Gentle Reader™ the short vacation came to an end and our heroes returned to their 19th Century Posse HQ.

“I’m off to a life of crime.”

“Be careful, Jay,” Mac admonished, “We don’t want to lose you so soon after your return.”

“C’mon Mac—how many adventures have we had since 2007?” Jay asked, “You must know I won’t be lost. And too, Flutters will watch-over me.”

“That’s small comfort, Jay,” Mac replied, “Perhaps we should ask Karma Big-Feathers to watch-over you.”

“There’s a thought,” Jay replied, “Just so she flies very-high above us.”

“She’s no fool, Jay—she’ll fly high and still be able to watch-over you.”

“I’ll be counting on that.”

SALOON, Episode 3—Scene 2 … Jay Merton arrived at Keller & Simpson’s HQ (with Karma Bigfeathers flying high overhead) … “Okay, what’s next?” Jay asked.

“Okay, what’s next?”

“Next is to give you an assignment,” Keller replied, “But not in this century.”

“Century?”

“The 21st Century,” Simpson replied, “Juco is, at our request, sending us all to the 21st Century.”

“Juco can do that?”

“Of course,” Keller replied, “He’s got mad skills.”

“What will we do when we get to the 21st Century?”

“We’ll open an upscale lounge catering to the very-wealthy,” Simpson replied, “With a back-room set-up with all manner of gambling opportunities.”

“I LIKE that,” Jay replied, “I need to pick-up a few things before we leave.”

“Make it quick,” Keller said, “We need to leave soon.”

“Oh—I’ll be quick—for an old man!”

SALOON, Episode 3—Scene 3 … Inside the Posse HQ™ … “It appears I’ll be going to the 21st Century,” Jay announced as he entered the Posse HQ, Keller & Simpson informed me that’s where we’re going.”

“Wonderful!” Mac exclaimed, “I’ll contact the 21st Century Silverthorn family & ask them to watch-over you—and let Karma Bigfeathers know so she can watch-over you.”

“Aren’t you coming too?”

Jay Merton reported back Inside the PosseHQ™ ©JBoardman

“Aren’t you coming too?”

“No—this is only ‘Episode 3’ of this ‘Adventure’—we have to stick around for a few more episodes.”
