The Man O’War Pub

Pioneer Port of Danger Bay Banner Previously:

McLintock was finally convinced, “Very well, Mr. Kidd, what is your plan?”

Ringo was happy to see Daisy, his first ‘Canine-Knight-of-the-Realm after her battle with Renegade the Wolf. He addressed her with her Spirit Name, “You are recovering Akecheta-Apenimon?”

I feel much better, Sakima-Chaska-Heammawihio,” Daisy replied, “But, I think I am in a little trouble.”

You and your friends will accompany me—now!”Ringo spoke to his Canine Knights

The dogs were “in trouble,” yes they were.

Season VI, Chapter 8, Episode 31:

Ringo had already whispered his intentions to Chris & Boomer, and both agreed to his plan. They would inform Sarah Cooper of where and why Pepper-Cooper had “disappeared.” Ringo was planning a sort of “advanced degree for Knights of the Realm” curriculum for the dog-people [We’ll be devoting a series of special episodes just for this adventure]. Ringo and his “Canine-Knights-of-the-Realm” trotted off into the forest.

To allow Boomer, Chris & Larry to get some needed rest, we’ll let a full day pass before resuming our story…

The Man O’War Pub was different than the saloons of both Lake and Moosehead counties, The saloons generally didn’t open until at least 11:00 am, and they’d remain open almost all night; moreover, they didn’t serve food.

Mrs. James Byrne, Coleen to her closest friends, arrived at the pub around 3:00 am every morning to begin preparing a hearty breakfast for the fishermen (and any loggers in town) before their long days on the lake or in the forest. Jimmy Byrne would arrive at precisely at 4:00 am to unlock the doors and begin dispensing his famous Irish-Blend coffee and taking breakfast orders while Coleen prepared the breakfasts of cornmeal, eggs and fried potatoes.

Spenser & Kidd at the Man O'War PubJimmy was wiping down the back bar during a short break from breakfast orders when his concentration on his task was interrupted, “Good morning Mr. Byrne, a couple of tins of coffee please.”

He turned around to see Jonathan Spenser and a young stranger standing at the bar, “Good morning Mr. Spenser, who’s this young fella?”

Good morning, Mr. Byrne, My name’s Kidd. I’ve heard good things about the food served here, sir.”

And so the charming of Grand Marais had begun…

    “You like men with axes?”

    Methinks the Brown and White must still have some lead lodged in her brain from the recent ‘let me catch a bullet’ drama.

    Speculation based on the teachings of the Master wherein a detailed discussion surrounding the ability to ‘read between the lines’, suggests that Ms. Susie may not be interested in the logger’s axe at all but rather the handle length holding the axe head which as known by those who do that when considered from the perspective of advanced mathematics associated with big sticks, determines the arc of the swing.

    Little more need be said to address this possible misunderstanding on the part of the brown and white except to take a moment to wish all Christmas Cheer from the this ultra secret location selected by the Master who has joined his team of Canadian students during this Holiday Season on the left coast’s bluest of blue mountains. 🙂
