Marshal Blackmon returned from town after her first job-applicant in jail with an accompanying call to his parents (who would bail his sorry butt out a few hours later) and as she pulled into her driveway saw another applicant standing next to a long red car, “Oh…my! Let the interview begin!”
Season VI, Chapter 7 Danger Bay—2012, Episode 10—Conclusion:
We don’t know how the interview went—except that Hickok was hired. The remainder of their week’s stay in 2012 passed too quickly: Sarah sold Cooper’s General Store to Shaddock Farkleberry, Medlar Farkleberry’s younger brother and owner of the Ship’s Chandlery. Shad asked if he could retain the name of the store. Sarah agreed.
Jay Cooper began flying lessons—and as you must know by now, GENTLE READER, learning to fly in cyberspace takes a mere fraction of the time it takes in the—um—REAL WORLD. Soon he soloed without any discernable problem.
Andrew spoke with Cujo, and she confirmed he would be joining the others in their next adventure in 1873—she’d already decided he would before he asked.
Erik wasn’t so sure he wanted to return to 1873—after all—his manuscript was completed and he had much to do to get it published and returning to the past would cost two days. Cujo reluctantly agreed.
As had become their custom before meeting at the Cabin-on-the-Rock for their return to the past, they gathered at Silverthorn’s Café for breakfast and coffee.
Hiram Silverthorn had noticed a few changes in the History of the Port of Danger Bay , a little unexpected considering our heroes hadn’t been to Pioneer Danger Bay this most recent trip. He told of the Hickok family’s story appearing on page 235 of the book, and also he told of another family he was unfamiliar with; with a famous name .
“I looked the name up in the county directory, and sure enough there is a family of that name living in Moosehead City,” Hiram began.
“It’s all pretty amazing,” Kiwi Silverthorn added, “But still, we don’t know everybody in the county.”
“Okay, Hiram,” Boomer was having trouble containing his curiosity, “Out with it, what family?”
“Mr. Hickok here was a bit of a surprise, and this other family will be as well. You say, Mac, you’re headed for Wichita, Kansas?”
“Yes. C’mon Hiram, give up the name!”
Just as Hiram was about to speak, the café door swung open, “How do? My name’s Wyatt Earp IV, I was told by a tri-color dog that you were expecting me.”
