“Do it.” Continue reading

“Sacrificial idiots.”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: Keller’s bat-sense informed him—the two men standing away from the bar fit his internal people-judging skills to a tee, “By chance are either or both of you two looking for work?”

“We might be,” the taller of the two replied, quietly, “But we’d rather discuss this outside.”

When they went outside—the tall fellow got right to the point, “You are hiring people to do illegal things, right?” Continue reading

“Where next, Joey?”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “Let’s park the bikes—I’d like to play tourist for a while.”

“Good idea—I generally don’t hang-out in Nashwauk, so nobody is likely to recognize me.”

The two walked the entire length of the downtown Nashwauk a couple of times and decided to visit the Walk-In Café. Continue reading

“Maybe he went to the Twin Cities again.”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: The Posse™ arrived. There were several cars parked outside, and our heroes expected to catch them flat-footed, “Okay folks—get ready to storm the farmhouse—spread-out, we’ll surprise them from front and rear.”

“Roger that, Mac,” Chris Earp replied, “Let’s Git R DONE!”

They took their time—employing their Native friends-taut silent-walking through the forest tactic. Continue reading

“Where’s the boss?”

On the Run Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “Hey, Les,” Boomer smiled, “Have you seen a big fellow, nearly as big as Mac, in here?”

“Yes, I have,” Armstrong replied, “A fellow matching that size was here hired the same two fellas who were giving you guys a hard time.”

“Thank you, Les,” Boomer replied, as the two left the bar. Continue reading

“Welcome back.”

On the Run Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “Not well,” Johnson replied, “There aren’t many men around here to consider—and the ones we could consider are too stupid.”

“Okay,” Simpson said, “Joey, you and Jim head for the Twin-Cities and find the best available people—you know where to look.”

After they left, Simpson asked, “Are there any men you would consider on a temporary basis?” Continue reading

“I’m back!”

On the Run Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: Mac and Boomer walked away from the bar—and were approached by two men, “You fellas ain’t from around here.”

“No sir,” Mac rumbled, “We’re from near Grand Marais.”

“We don’t much like strangers hereabouts, mind your own business.” Continue reading

“Time stands-still in Sturgeon Lake.”

On the Run Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “My butt is beyond sore,” Boomer complained, “When we go out again—it will be in the Mustang!”

“That won’t hurt my feelings in the least.”

“Let’s head South,” Boomer suggested, “Maybe to the Moose, and Sturgeon Lake area?”

“As long as you let me drive—once in a while.” Continue reading

“So far—so good.”

On the Run Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “I’m bored to tears!”

“So am I, Chris,” Wyatt replied, “So am I.”

“We have to check the highway, unfortunately,” she added, “We might just get lucky—let’s speed-up.”

“Engaging lights & siren.” Continue reading

Dear Gentle Reader™:

This blog began on 29 July 2007, almost 13 years ago, and I’m burned-out.

I must ask myself whether, or not, I want to continue writing at all.

It has become more and more difficult for me to come-up with story-lines without repeating them over and over.

In the early days—there would be many comments on every post—and now?

An ORIGINAL Image

Don’t ask.

Episodes will continue through February 22 2019.

Update! Beginning soon I’ll begin posting again on Tuesdays and Thursdays!

Sincerely,

Boomer
