Truck Tires

Previously:

Rip shrugged his shoulders and with a look at his friends, a look that said “back down, I got this” he turned to Hiram, “Sure chief, why not?”

Silverthorn knew that sooner or later Rip and his friends would try to take him out—he had to buy some time.

From all over the county peace officers were responding…silently.

Would they be on time?

Season 8—Chapter 1—Cartel—Episode 6:

They left from Williams’ Station…

They left from Williams' Station...

They left from Williams’ Station…

Flutters had a plan… and quite unexpectedly flew out the window of AJ’s squad, leaving behind a quite perplexed Andrew & Larry Yatkowsky. He hadn’t allowed for the fact that the restored 1949 Mercury was traveling in excess of 75 mph—so it took several revolutions for him to recover and continue with his plan—dizzier than usual, but a bit wiser for the experience.

They left from from North Danger Bay…

They left from all over Moosehead County…

Meanwhile—Somewhere along the Gunflint Trail…

(This, GENTLE READER, is just to not let you forget Big Mac, Collie, Daisy & yours truly still exist.)

Meanwhile—back at the 61 Way Café Lieutenant Silverthorn made a show of thoroughly inspecting the tires on Rip’s truck; hoping he was convincing him that THAT was all he was interested in. Rip was not the brightest candle on the Christmas tree and was beginning to accept Hiram’s story, “Ya kin get th’ tires at Fred’s place in Moosehead City.”

Fred’s? I know the place. Soon as I finish my coffee, I’ll head over there and see if he has any to fit my Ram,” Silverthorn said and as he spoke, he heard Lightning bark.

To Rip it sounded like a dog barking, but Hiram heard, “They’re twenty minutes away.”

Too long,” Silverthorn thought, “I gotta stall these guys.” Turning to Rip he said out loud, “I need some more of Ed’s famous swill.”

And the two of them headed back inside. Rip had hoped he could get rid of this red skinned cop—that would have made things a little easier. NOW they had to do this the hard way…

      Methinks thinks Fluttermatters that a long time ago in hills green with mountains blue capped by new snow glistening under the glow of a full moon a female presence appeared overwhelming the senses long trained by the Master to overcome all influence. Wiser it was methinks to abide by the rules of the Master and yet methinks it might have been fun.
