“Why?” Keller asked. Continue reading

“Exactly my plan.”

Simpson Banner 22 Sep 2019PREVIOUSLY: While the rest of the Posse™ were on patrol, Big Mac, Linda, Chris & Wyatt Earp were meeting inside the headquarters.

There was a knock on the door.

“Big A!” Mac exclaimed, “What a surprise!”

Without preamble, Big A replied, “I need your help.”

“With what, exactly?” Chris Earp asked.

“Eliminating Joey Keller and his gang—before they eliminate me and my little gang.”

“The enemy you know is better than the one you don’t theory?” Mac rumbled in reply.

“Precisely right,” Simpson replied, “Just like always to this blog.”

“He has a point, Mac,” Linda said, “Keller is a newcomer—a very-dangerous newcomer to this blog.”

“I think we should help Biggass,” Chris Earp agreed.

Season 18, Adventure 6, SIMPSON’S RETURN, Episode 1—Scene 1…Inside the 19th Century Posse™ HQ… All the Posse members were now present… “So, Allen,” Mac asked, “What do you propose?”

“I propose we combine forces,” Simpson replied, “Your Posse, with my people.”

“Is that a good idea, Mac?” Boomer asked, “Allen is not known for his honesty.”

“In this case, I believe it is a good idea.”

“In this case, I believe it is a good idea.”

“I agree,” Debra said—and the rest followed suit.

“Very-well,” Mac rumbled, “We begin training as soon as possible.”

“For our part,” Simpson said, “We’ll pledge to commit no violent crimes of any kind in Moosehead County, or anywhere else, for that matter—a bit of cheating a poker, perhaps a con-job or two.”

“Really?” Mac rumbled—skeptically.

“We’re not gunfighters,” Ambrose Fisher added, “Poker is our game, not gunfighting.”

SIMPSON’S RETURN, Episode 1—Scene 2… Keller and Company rode through West Danger Bay…

“The so-called posse must be here in Danger Bay—somewhere,” Keller said as they rode past the Posse™ HQ.

Keller & company didn’t see the stable

“They must be somewhere, Boss,” Thomas Wilson replied, “Perhaps we should stop in town and ask—all friendly-like.”

“I expect we should ride into town, and ask around—all friendly-like,” Keller replied.

“Good idea, Boss,” Herbert Jones replied.

SIMPSON’S RETURN, Episode 1—Scene 3… Keller and Company rode into Danger Bay…

“Let’s stop at the general store, Joey,” Wilber Smith suggested.

“Exactly my plan.”

“Exactly my plan.”

“Excuse me, sir,” Keller asked, “Would you know where I might find a group calling themselves the posse?”

James Silverthorn smiled back at the man, expecting the question, “No sir—I’ve not heard of them.”

“Well, then, does the name, ‘McIntyre’ sound familiar?”

“I’m sorry I haven’t,” He replied, “Have you tried Moosehead City?”

“We have, thank you, thank you,” A thoroughly baffled Keller replied.

“Let’s GO!”

Deadwood Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Keller’s Gang rode towards Flyspeck and as they did—came across a Conestoga wagon heading in the opposite direction, towards Rapid City.

They would never reach Rapid City.

The victims were a family just looking for a new life in Dakota Territory—they meant no harm to anybody—now they wouldn’t have the chance. Continue reading

DEADWOOD—AGAIN!

Deadwood Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “You MUST leave Joey—and take your best men with you!”

And—just like that, Gentle Reader™, they were gone.

Joey Keller Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “Ah,” Farkleberry replied, “Bad move on your part.”

“You gonna represent us or not?”

“That’s my job, Mr. Johnson, isn’t it?” Farkleberry (a cousin of the Medlar Farkleberry family), replied, “And I’m damn good at what I do as a public defender.” Continue reading

“Who do we have here?”

Deadwood Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: The man reached under his jacket and pulled-out an old revolver.

Before he brought it to bear on our heroes—Chris Earp had her Colt .45 semi-auto drawn and pointing at his head—and Boomer had his US Marshal’s badge out, “You’ll be dead on the floor in another eye-blink—FREEZE!”

Not complete idiots, they did just that. Continue reading
