“We can hope,” Linda replied, and then cracked-wise, “But, until then we’ll be wasting precious time enjoying fine food.”

“There is that,” Joey added as he flipped the steaks.” Continue reading

Searhing BannerPreviously: “I just learned that the Posse™ has arrived in Deadwood, Mr. Prokup,” Allen Simpson said, “You did register this room in your name—right?”

“Right,” Prokup replied, “May I assume you’ll be departing?”

“Okay folks—now to get to work.”

The Search BannerPREVIOUSLY: “Sure,” the salesman replied, “We took it in trade, along with four other cars; they purchased six new Chevrolets, all the trade-ins were in good shape.”

“Thank you,” Mac replied, “It sounds like a good deal all around.”

“Are you interested in the Caddy?”

“No,” Mac rumbled, “We’re good—just curious is all.”

As they drove-off—they held a meeting via their respective communicators, “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” Continue reading

The Posse™ arrived in Deadwood

The Search BannerPREVIOUSLY: “New,” Simpson replied, “Classic cars are great—but servicing can be a hassle.”

“Well,” He replied, “We were just closing—but I’ll be happy to help you.”

Schmidt went outside with Simpson and inspected his cars, “I’m impressed—these cars are in good shape, overall—how many cars are you interested in purchasing?”

“Six.”

“We have that many available,” Schmidt replied, “One was to be purchased by a company as the manager’s car, and three for a police department, for which our bid was rejected. Needless to say—I’ll give you the cars at my cost—less your trade-ins.” Continue reading

“We have no idea where Big-A is hiding.”

The Search for the Simpsons Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Ambrose Simpson—tired of being cooped-up in his apartment—was enjoying the beautiful day outside.

After giving them a breakfast suggestion, he didn’t pay close attention to the couple walking on the sidewalk across the street.

He should have—each was hiding a submachine gun on their side.

Seconds later he died in a hail of .45 caliber bullets.

By the time the Posse™ responded to the gunfire, the assailants had escaped in a car parked nearby.

“I told him to stay inside!” Mac exclaimed.

“I saw a 1960 Ford Galaxie parked just beyond the entry,” Boomer observed, “and it’s gone now.”

“I’ll notify the police,” AJ said as he went back inside to make the call. 

The 911 dispatcher immediately put-out an all-points bulletin giving a description of the getaway-car.

A Minnesota State Trooper saw the white Ford and immediately gave chase and called for assistance.

Twenty-minutes later the car was stopped, and the occupants instructed to get out of the car.

They did—and opened-fire with their submachine guns.

They both died as a result of the withering return fire of the State Troopers surrounding them.

And with their deaths any hope of finding out who hired them died as well.

Season 18—Adventure 2—SEARCH—Episode 7—Scene 1… Inside Big A’s Condo… Allen Stanley Simpson had not yet heard back from his hired guns.

He was livid!

Allen Simpson gave order to kill Ambrose ©JBoardmanHe was livid!

(Of course, GENTLE READER™, that’s not a BIG SURPRISE—right?)

He had no idea they were dead. That being the case—he decided to go into hiding.

The Posse™ was simply too good at what they did.

“What will I do with my remaining associates?” he wondered out loud, “Perhaps the best thing would be to keep them on—save Mr. Smit who has let me down for the last time.”

Mr. Smit was dispatched, permanently—and Simpson and the remaining gang left Apple Valley.

They left no forwarding address.

Episode 7—Scene 2… Inside Boomer’s House… “We have no idea where Big-A is hiding.”

The Posse met inside Boomer's Hous ©JBoardman“We have no idea where Big-A is hiding.”

“Or if he was involved in the killing of Ambrose,” Linda agreed.

“I think that’s probably likely,” Joey added, “But—we have no proof.”

“I’ll just bet he’s heading back to Moosehead County,” Debra said, “I could be wrong.”

“I wouldn’t,” Linda said, “That would be unwise—don’t you think?”

“Don’t you have images of South Dakota, Boomer?” Chris asked.

“Yup!”

“Well—then?”

Episode 7—Scene 3… Somewhere in South Dakota… Allen Stanley Simpson and friends were on the run.

On the run...Allen Stanley Simpson and friends were on the run.

They’d been driving for hours and hours.

FINALLY—they arrived in Deadwood, South Dakota, “The first thing we do—is get rid of these cars.”

“But Al,” Gang foreman Fred Prokup protested, “No one has seen them.”

“That we know of, Fred,” Simpson replied, “They’re classic cars and we should get some value out of that in trade. What we need is cars that blend-in—not old classics.”

“I can’t argue with that, Al,” He replied, “I’ll get right on it!”

Our story will be Continued…
