“Really?” Susan, had she known Hiram Silverthorn better, would not have been surprised—Chris who had become quite close to the Silverthorn family was not, “I came to see if you’d mind the competition, I wasn’t expecting an offer to help—thank you.”
“Kiwi and I are content with and want to concentrate on the early morning through lunchtime business and we were planning on cutting back our hours some. Someone has to cover lunchtime into the evening hours.”
“So,” Kiwi smiled, “Let’s talk business.”
Season 8—Chapter 2—The Harbor—Episode 1:
Continuing our story at Silverthorn’s Café—And business was discussed—including an offer of financial assistance by the Silverthorns…
“You’d DO that?” Susan exclaimed, “Thank you very much, but I sufficient resources, I believe. Seven Tables has been more successful than I imagined back in 1873—and my subsequent ancestors were very-frugal people, amassing a very-tidy rainy-day fund.”
“Have you found someone to manage Seven Tables?”
“That’s my next project. My current employees do a fine job in my absence—but none want the headaches of managing full-time; do you know anyone I should consider?”
“Our grandson, Gray Wolf James Silverthorn, Sam’s son,” Kiwi replied, “He just graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth with dual BA degrees in History and Business Management and is currently working for a restaurant chain in Duluth.”
“Would he be interested?”
“We can ask him—he’s coming up for the weekend, a rare weekend off for him.”
As the conversation drifted away from business, Susan realized one little thing she hadn’t thought of, “I will need a car—my truck is part of Seven Tables’ business.”
Medlar Farkleberry’s (large) ears picked-up on that instantly, “Wal, I reckon I kin help you out there—I have something I just finished restoring that I figger you might like. It even pretnear matches th’ colors of yer truck.”
Susan, Chris and Lar walked next door to Farkleberry’s Star Service, and moments later he brought around a small, restored Ford pick-up.
And it did match—almost perfectly!
