Mac smiled—widely.

PREVIOUSLY: Several hours later they arrived in Danger Bay and stopped at Silverthorn’s General Store, “Cold drinks?”

“Yes, please,” Chris Earp replied, “Whatever is handy.”

“Ale for me, please,” Boomer and Mac said almost in unison. Continue reading

Effective NOW!

Because of the current difficulty (darn near impossibility) of creating new images – I will no longer make new images.

I WILL  continue to write this blog! It is simply too much fun to write.

(Note: THIS IS TEMPORARY… I’ve found a work-around!)

I repeat:

I WILL CONTINUE TO WRITE THIS BLOG!

“How about a saloon?”

Previously: “Gentlemen,” Simpson instructed, “You are to mix with the town’s people and make friends if you can.”

“How about the marshal?”

“I’ll meet with him, Floyd,” Simpson replied, “And convince him he needs more deputies.”

“Do you think he’ll agree?”

“Oh yes,” Simpson replied, “I have some people about to go on a rampage nearby.”

“Who?”

“You don’t need to know that,” Simpson replied, “And you’ll not share that with anyone—disobedience equals death.”

Episode 4… Scene 3… Forest City Rooms… Boomer called a meeting in his hotel room, “I have news, Boomer.”

“Please share, Chris,” Captain Boomer replied, “Enlighten us.”

“Simpson and his men are all on the second floor—we’re two floors above them,” She replied, “So it’s unlikely they’ll see us by accident.”

“And too,” Wyatt added, “There’s a back-service stairwell we can use—I saw a maid use it.”

“So, we can come & go as we please,” Boomer replied, “Excellent!”

Season 17—Adventure 13—SIMPSON—Episode 5… Scene 1… Inside Simpson’s Apartment…

“Gentlemen—we must find a way to earn some money—legally.”

“Really, boss,” Jimmy Smith replied, “How about a saloon?”

Simpson met with his top lieutenants ©J. Boardman“How about a saloon?”

“With honest poker games,” James “Lefty” Johnson added.

“Good idea,” Simpson replied, “Where?”

“I was at the Big Bay Saloon a few days ago,” Jimmy Smith replied, “The owner told me he was ready to retire, and he wanted to sell-out.”

“Okay, Jimmy,” Simpson replied, “Let’s ride out there and take a look.”

Episode 5… Scene 2… Outside the Big Bay Saloon… It took them several hours to get to the location of the saloon (because, GENTLE READER™, it was some twenty miles away).

“You didn’t tell me it was this far away.”

“I’m sorry, Boss,” Johnson replied, “It really didn’t seem that far.”

“This may be a good thing for us—if there are personal quarters in the building.”

2 hours later, they arrived at the saloon.

“What a beautiful location,” Simpson said, “Perhaps too beautiful.”

“Let’s go inside,” Johnson replied, “And speak to Mr. Williams.”

Episode 5… Scene 3… Inside the Big Bay Saloon… “Hello again, Mr. Williams,” Johnson greeted as they entered.

“Johnson, is it?” Williams replied, “Ah, yes, I remember you said something about someone who might be interested in purchasing this place.”

“That would be me,” Simpson replied.

“Very-well, I’ll have my partner Melissa Applegate show you around.

Simpson arrived in Forest City

Simpson Banner

Previously: “We really don’t want trouble,” Wyatt Earp IV said, “I’m Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp, and I prefer avoiding gunfights.”

THAT—impressed them enough for them to back-down and get friendly.

They would, however, report the encounter to Simpson.

Episode 3… Scene 3… A week later at Simpson’s Cabin Floyd Cartier, Laurence Herbert, Thomas Meek, Mark Peterson, & Timothy McMahon were brought to Simpson’s cabin by Conway and Simpson’s other men.

Simpson interviewed each man.

He was surprised by the quality of each—testament to Conway’s insistence on personally approving of each man, “Perhaps Mr. Conway has earned the job of foreman of the gang.”

Season 17—Adventure 13—SIMPSON—Episode 4… Scene 1… Forest City… Simpson and company arrived in town.

Simpson & Co arrived in townSimpson and company arrived in town.

“This will be our home for the next several weeks as we take-over Forest City.”

“How do you plan on doing this?” James “Lefty” Johnson asked.

“First—we stay out of trouble,” Simpson replied.

What Simpson didn’t notice as the went into the hotel to check-in—was the arrival of four very-dangerous people.

Episode 4… Scene 2… Forest City… Boomer & Company arrived minutes after Simpson arrived in town.

They weren’t seen by any of the Simpson gang—but they would check-in to the same hotel, “We should wait until they’ve checked-in,” Chris Earp observed.

“We can visit the general store.”

“Let’s do that, Wyatt,” Boomer agreed.

Episode 4… Scene 3… Forest City Rooms… Simpson met with his top lieutenants, Tim Conway & Floyd Cartier.
