Danger Bay—Episode 28—Sarah’s Adventure in Cyberspace

Story by Sarah Cooper (of ActiveRain and under construction, TheCooper’s General Store ©2007 New Codgers Putnam Scoop)

(Takes place just following the events of Episode 27)

Ines hears all kinds of stories as she pours the drinks over at Swigs, and I’m sure a lot of them are just tall tales. I had to tell her where I’d been, but I worried she’d never believe me, even though it’s true! After the excitement at Swigs, she left the bar in the capable hands of “The Codger” and met me at my store.

Well, through the magic of cyberspace, I’ll take you back in time and let you listen in to what I had to tell her. You may judge for yourself whether or not my story is true.

“Ines,” I started, “I have to talk about what happened. You might think I’m crazy, but I have quite a story for you, and I swear it’s true!

“You have me all excited,” Ines said, “to hear of your adventure.”

“I was just minding my own business, when suddenly … I heard ‘POOF!’ there was a flash of light and … I just didn’t feel the same, and then ‘POP’. ‘WOW! What was that?! Where am I???’ The sun was too bright, and with the warm, humid breeze I knew I just wasn’t in Kansas—er—Danger Bay anymore.”

“I looked around and saw I was standing in a gravel parking lot. Wow. This ‘POOFING & POPPING’ thing could take some getting used to.”

“I realized I needed to find out where I was and figure out WHY I was there. Then I noticed something weird about the parking lot. It was full of nothing but motorcycles. Motorcycles were everywhere! I’d never seen so many at one time. That was kind of suspicious. It made me think of someplace, but I couldn’t quite put a name to it.”

“I needed a place to sit down for a minute to clear my head. This whole ‘POOFING’ business can be hard on a girl. I decided I’d head for the building at the end of the parking lot. And hey, how come I didn’t notice that music earlier? Do I hear someone singing the blues??”


“Suddenly, I knew exactly where I was.”

“OK girl,” Ines said with anticipation, “go on!”

“But right then, right at the very moment of my revelation,” I continued, “I heard a ‘POP!’ and saw a flash of light.”

“Someone else ‘POPPED’ in?” she asked.

“Yes, Ines! Someone else got ‘POPPED’ into the same parking lot as me, just a couple minutes later! I couldn’t believe the coincidence myself. But it got even stranger.”

“As my vision cleared, I was even more shocked than ever. It was someone I knew! No, not from Danger Bay, from Active Rain! Girl, let me tell you …”

    Mornin’ Sarah, Saw on the news this morning you getting a soakin’ down there. Heading my way later today. Guess it’s back to the rain to play!


  2. Sarah Cooper says:

    Dan, we are getting RAIN!!!! Actual moisture falling from the sky. It’s nearly spooky, it’s been so long. I hope you get to enjoy it as much as we are! I have been meaning to go take pictures of our water reservoir. It looks like a prairie with a few big puddles. We needed this rain!

    And about the post … I can’t wait to see what happens next! I have no idea … !


  3. gotbob says:

    All this popping and poofing gives me a headache.

    Nice job Sarah… You and Ines can finally retire and become an old Codger!!!

    Rained enough here to raise the humidity…we are never going to lift the water restrictions.


  4. Ines says:

    Sarah…..you have me on pins and needles!!! Now I have to wait another week! You are really learing that “Codger Style” – I wonder where you were!


  5. Sarah Cooper says:

    SOMEONE, who I suspect will be here later, will know exactly where I was! 🙂


  6. Hey Sarah Girl! I think I’m going to like visiting here. I’m with Ines; I don’t think I can wait until next Friday, but I’ll make it part of my Friday routine to stop by to see what happens next.

    I thought you had been kind of quiet the last few days. Great job!

    Chat soon. 😉


  7. JWT says:

    I have so many questions. But the most important one is this: Is Jack Boardman related to Teresa Boardman?


  8. Desiree says:

    Okay I am lost… I need to do some reading and catch up on the “going’s on” here so i don’t look so simple minded…. bbl


  9. Sparky says:

    I don’t much care for ‘Pop’ ups…. , now sushi, that’s a whole different story….


  10. jaymerton says:

    Dan, Peep: Thanks for stopping by, you’re always welcome!
    Sarah/Granddaughter: You did a great job on the story!
    Bob: Take 2 aspirin and don’t call me in the morning!
    Ines: I have an idea, but am not certain…no, really!
    Sarah: Really?
    Jennifer: You are welcome here.
    Desiree: No one who reads this blog is simple-minded. Oh…wait..I read this blog! 🙂
    Jeff: Only by marriage.
    Sparky: Suchi? Oooo, that’s raw.
    Thanks, all, for stopping by.


  11. Hi All! I am a little confused even though I time traveled back aways. It’s feeling a little like a “Wrinkle in Time”…. : )


  12. jaymerton says:

    Deborah: It might help to visit our AR blog, and look at some of the old posts. This blog is something of a continuation of that. This is a place to kick back, relax & interact with our real crew of Codgers, and see the world as viewed through our eyes, go to Danger Bay for pure fiction from our overactive imaginations.
    Thank you for stopping by.


  13. Sarah – You’ve got me itching for more…keep it coming girl! As for the codgers – nice blog and what fun!


  14. jaymerton says:

    Chrissy: Thanks for stopping by! We have a lot of fun here.


  15. Sarah Cooper says:

    Grandad — REALLY. I have no clue what’s going to happen. I write by the seat of my pants a lot of the time. I like to be surprised by what comes out. And there may be a couple co-authors …

    But darn — someone who I thought would recognize this place hasn’t stopped in yet! Hmmm, we’ll have to keep checking back. 😉


  16. gotbob says:

    WOW Jay… Sarah is better that Google Juice…look at all the peeps she rolls with!!!


  17. jaymerton says:

    Funny, Teresa!
    Sarah: MOST of my posts are of the SOP variety. I’m about through checking for tonight. Jay tired, go to bed now.
    Bob: Yep!


  18. Ines says:

    Oh Jay and jack! I forgot to tell you……the shelves behind Sarah and I are stunning! nice job!


  19. I really need to get out more and see what is happening out here… what a hoot


  20. boomerjack says:

    Ines: Thank you! Jay & I are our own severest critics, and the contents of the shelves need some work, in our opinion. Jay and I continually go back to the original drawing and tweak a little here, and adjust a little there. That’s how the Swigs interior has been improved with beer taps, signs & rest rooms.
    Thesa: Believe me, it’s a hoot writing this stuff, and getting Ines & Sarah to write some stories for us an even bigger hoot. This blog’s “Danger Bay Series” is easily our favorite part of “Our Saint Paul’s” multiple identities.

    Thought you would 🙂

  25. Carl McIntyre says:

    Sarah, you’re writing fits right in with the spirit of Danger Bay (as does the writing of Ines – who still hasn’t let on what I did to Big A 😦 ).


  26. boomerjack says:

    Carl: If you don’t know what your cyber-Mac did…who would?
