“This place is difficult to find.”  “That’s a plus, Erik,” Davenport replied, “A great place away from my condo-apartment.”

“Too bad about Andy.”

“He screwed-up.” Continue reading

But—not before the (off-stage) heavy mortars’ 105mm shells penetrated the roof of the Posse Headquarters™ and destroyed the main level of the building. Continue reading

“I found a place where the posse might be hiding.”

Searching Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “You may be correct, Chris,” Mac replied, “We’d best prepare.”

“How?”

“By making some simple arrangements,” Mac replied, “Like hiring a caretaker for when we’re away from our HQ, and when we’re here—keeping the gate closed. That’s exactly why we transplanted all those evergreen trees.”

Episode 7—Scene 3… Outside the Posse Headquarters™… Texas James stopped in front of the Posse HQ… James peered through the gate—and saw nothing. Continue reading

“I bet it’s us.”

Searching BannerPreviously: “You two have a wet-work assignment.”  “Already?” James replied, “We thought that kind of assignment would seldom be required.:

“That’s true—however it has become necessary,” Reed replied, “This ‘Posse,’ has become a real problem for us up in Danger Bay—they’ve disappeared from their headquarters and the buildings are for sale.” Continue reading

“You two come highly recommended by Mr. Reed.”

Searching BannerPreviously: “Welcome to our headquarters,” Mac greeted the two, “Chris—will you show them to the Operations Center, please?”

Twenty minutes later, Chris returned, “They’re pretty excited about the position, and loved the view out onto Lake Superior!”

“They accepted?” Mac asked.

“Oh yeah—they sure did!”

“Are they just hanging-out?”

“Nope,” Chris laughed, “They’re already at work!”

“They’re already at work!”

“Really?” Mac asked, “You did pretty-well—for a girl!”

Big Mac’s laughter probably could be heard two counties away.

Inside “The Rustic Café” in Canal Park, Duluth, Minnesota… Andy Reed offered jobs to two new men, Brian Wright & Henry Jones—after a thorough interview & background check.

“You need to talk money, Mr. Reed,” Wright replied, “We don’t work for free.”

“That will be determined by Mr. Davenport, gentlemen,” Reed replied, “My experience is that he’ll pay in the fifty-thousand-dollar range to start.”

Season 18—Adventure 3—SEARCHING— Episode 6—Scene 1… Outside “The Rustic Café” in Canal Park, Duluth, Minnesota… Troopers Reade & Mallory (this is a nod to the old Adam-12 TV show’s Reed and Malloy—I couldn’t help myself.)

Their interest was enough to follow them at a distance, so as not to scare them off, for a while. When they turned to drive-up to Engler Tower—the troopers discontinued their observations of the two cars.

Episode 6—Scene 2… Inside Stanley Davenport’s Lakeside Condo Apartment… “You two come highly recommended by Mr. Reed.”

Big A & Prokup met in Big A's Hotel room ©Jack Boardman“You two come highly recommended by Mr. Reed.”

“Mr. Reed said you’d make a fair compensation-offer,” Brian Wright replied, “Let’s hear that offer.”

“Does $75,000 a year to start sound fair, gentlemen?”

“Including wet-work?”

“Unlikely,” Davenport answered, “But if required—it will be paid on the QT from a bank in the Bahamas.”

“By ‘QT’ you imply it is not-taxed?” Wilson James asked.

“Not a cent,” Davenport replied, “Your W-2 form will not show the extra income as it will also be deposited in your respective Bahamian bank accounts.”

“Perfect,” James replied, “We have a deal.”

“Good,” Davenport said, “I already have a wet-work assignment for you—Mr. Reed will give you the particulars.”

Episode 6—Scene 3… Outside the Engler Tower… Reed gave Wright & James their assignment… “You two have a wet-work assignment.”

“That’s true—however it has become necessary,” Reed replied, “This ‘Posse,’ has become a real problem for us up in Danger Bay—they’ve disappeared from their headquarters and the buildings are for sale.”

“Are they THAT dangerous?” Wright asked.

“Yes.”

Searching BannerPreviously: “Oh BOY!” Chris exclaimed—rubbing her hands together, “Saddle-up gang!”

Searching BannerPreviously: “Indeed,” Big Mac agreed, “Eventually, perhaps, Cu-Cu will learn something.”

“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
