“Especially if you’re asking the Codger.”


He hadn’t noticed his brother and quickly rode to his side, “Bobby! What is going on? Yer riding with lawmen?”

Shet-up Dickie. You were dead, now you’re alive. I don’t know why.”

Because it wasn’t your time to die,” Boomer answered.

In fact,” Hickok was smiling, “Before your time comes, you both have a chance to do some good for once in your miserable lives. You can ride with us.”

I hear-tell you sold yer badge to McLintock,” Bobby had overheard this during his time in the Dreadwood jail, “I ‘spect you’re on the run. What I don’t understand is why Hickok hasn’t kilt you.”

I was ordered to go renegade by the US Marshal’s Office in Washington DC.”

Season VI, Chapter 7 Danger Bay—2012, Episode 1:


To establish myself as one who can be bought. The office believes that the St. Louis District marshal has become corrupt, and he wants me to hook-up with him.”

“Why ain’t I dead?”

Why ain’t I dead?”

It wasn’t your time,” Boomer Jack replied and before he could add anything else, he felt Cujo’s call—and time stood still in 1873 Dakota Territory…

“You have some explaining to do!” Chris exclaimed.

You have some explaining to do!” Chris exclaimed, “We’ve all been so worried that you went renegade.”

Not ALL of us, Chris,” Mac rumbled with a grin.

You knew?” Larry was surprised until he thought about it a moment, “Wait—THAT was why you didn’t want to follow Thunderhoof’s sensing Pal—RIGHT?”

Mac just smiled.

Why didn’t I know this, Alpha-Jack?” Cujo was concerned she was losing her touch.

I’m sorry Cujo, In order to prevent you from calling me back to the present too soon, I had to purposely NOT think of you—that was the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do.”

        Well I am sure you are correct…I worry some about the Orphanage too. I am sure I chose a great manager there also.

              We’d BETTER be. Remembering us could muck up the future; our present. I should never say “never,” it’s CUJO who makes that determination, not me. :-)
