“Ready—Aim—Fire!”

Return to Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “I agree,” Deputy US Marshal Al Jones added, “We must prepare Danger Bay for war.”

“Very-well,” Chris Earp agreed, “I’ll contact Jimmy Silverthorn and ask for their help.”

“And I’ll see if we can get help from the US Marshal’s office in Moosehead City,” Al Jones added.

“I’ll see to our defenses here,” Korean War Marine veteran Ralph Halvorson added, “And arrange some surprises for Carstairs.” Continue reading

“They’re going to come here.”

Return to Danger Bay BannerPREVIOUSLY: “Maybe Wyatt and I will join you,” Chris Earp said, “That would be more fun than reading.”

“Yes dear,” Wyatt replied, “Good idea.”

“Please keep in mind that Carstairs will probably want to hire a good deal more men before he comes here,” Mac cautioned. Continue reading

“And then?”

Return to Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: The Posse™ was already in place in the corral, and waiting, “Okay folks, get prepared.”

“Yes sir, Mac,” Boomer cracked-wise, “Right away—SIR!”

“A little more emphasis on the word ‘sir,’ if you don’t mind.”

Captain Boomer outranked Sergeant-Major McIntyre—but had deep respect for the tactical expertise Mac had—but simply HAD to tease his old friend—so he laughed. Continue reading

Shootout at the OK Corral!

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Maude O’Donnell was in the Deadwood Hotel lobby when Boomer & Linda returned to the hotel, “These two must be part of the so-called posse.”

 (I wonder, Gentle Reader, WHAT was her first CLUE?)

Maude thought seriously about drawing her gun—but wisely gave-up that thought. Continue reading

“What did you say?”

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “What are you doing in here little lady?”

Linda ignored him.

“I asked you a question—answer me!”

“Do you hear anything, cuzzin?” Continue reading

“What are you doing in here little lady?”

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: Hello ladies,” AJ replied, “What kind of work?”

“We are the O’Donnell sisters—and we’re not interested ‘women’s work’ in the least,” Mary O’Donnell said quietly to avoid being overheard, “We are all skilled with Henry Rifles and Remington .44s.”

“And we are not afraid to use them—I’m Margery, and my sisters are Mary, Maude, and Megan.”

“Let’s go outside where we can talk,” AJ suggested, “Without being overheard.” Continue reading

“Got it done!”

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Now, we are hunting someone named Simpson—who needs to be dead.”

“Thank you,” Wyatt grinned, “My name is US Deputy Marshal Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp—and you are under arrest.”

Both Wyatt & Chris Earp had their Remington .44s drawn and aimed in an eyeblink—Truly and company wisely surrendered.

Episode 6… Scene 2… Inside Carstairs’ Cabin… “Where are they?” Carstairs asked, “They should be here by now!”

“I don’t know, Boss,” Sarah McCoy replied, “They should be here by now.”

“Get out there!” AJ Carstairs replied, “And FIND THEM!”

“Yes boss,” McCoy said as they left the cabin, “We’ll find them.”

After they left, Carstairs said to his brother, “I have a feeling they ran into and underestimated this posse.”

“Agreed,” AJ replied, “And now—we have to replace the ones we lost.”

“I picked the last new hires—now it’s your job.”

“Gee thanks brother.”

Season 18—Adventure 1—CARSTAIRS Part 2—Episode 7… Scene 1… Inside Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon… AJ Carstairs was watching the patrons—scanning for potential new gang-members. He had been impressed by the female recruits they’d already hired.

As he watched, and as luck would have it—all but four women left Nuttal & Mann’s to go on about their business, “How-do, sir, we’re new in Deadwood, and we’re looking for work.”

“How-do, sir, we’re new in Deadwood, and we’re looking for work.”

“Hello ladies,” AJ replied, “What kind of work?”

“We are the O’Donnell sisters—and we’re not interested ‘women’s work’ in the least,” Mary O’Donnell said quietly to avoid being overheard, “We are all skilled with Henry Rifles and Remington .44s.”

“And we are not afraid to use them—I’m Margery, and my sisters are Mary, Maude, and Megan.”

“Let’s go outside where we can talk,” AJ suggested, “Without being overheard.”

Episode 7… Scene 2… Inside the Posse’s Hotel Room… All but Wyatt & Chris Earp were in the room attempting to decide how to set-up an “OK Corral” situation…

“But first—I have to build an ‘OK Corral’.”

“But first—I have to build an ‘OK Corral’.”

“Well,” Big Mac replied, “Get on it, Boomer.”

And with that—Boomer disappeared—heading for his image-maker in the REAL WORLD.

Moments later Boomer returned, “Got it done!”

“Got it done!”

WOW!” Chris Earp exclaimed as she and Wyatt arrived in the room, “We’re going to call Carstairs out?”

“That would be the plan,” Mac replied.

“Oh—GOODIE!”

“C’mon Cousin Linda,” Boomer grinned—wickedly, “Let’s visit the saloon and cause some trouble.”

“Just us?”

“Too many?”

Our story will be Continued…

“Where are they?”

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “You must move behind the buildings—NOW!”

Neither questioned Cujo—their long association with her prevailed.

They dismounted and looked through the gap between the buildings and observed several riders passing through town, “They’re Carstairs’ men.”

“I figured,” Chris replied, “We’ll ride hard back into Deadwood.” Continue reading

“You must move behind the buildings—NOW!”

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “I certainly hope so,” Chris Earp agreed, “It will give us more time to prepare—and maybe get Simpson & O’Hara to a safe place—like the 21st Century.”

“We’ve been there—exactly WHY we’re here.”

“Good point,” Chris replied, “Perhaps an OK Corral operation?” Continue reading

DEADWOOD!

Carstairs Part II Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: Eleanor Thomas, Wild Bill Johnson, & Jim Smith died on the spot and the others hightailed it away—two of them, Sandra Williams and Jeremy Smith, were mortally wounded.

Of the Posse—only Boomer suffered a wound (as with all old-time westerns—it was only a flesh-wound).

“DAMMIT!” Boomer exclaimed, “Even a flesh-wound hurts like hell—it wasn’t like that on all the TV westerns I watched as a kid.” Continue reading
