Restaurant for sale


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!

Season 8—Chapter 2—The Harbor—Episode 2:

At Farkleberry’s Star Service…It was a completely restored 1937 Ford pick-up truck, save for replacing the engine and transmission with up-to-date ones, and the colors? You’d think Lar Farkleberry had Susan in mind when he selected the colors…maybe?

Susan purchased a pickup truck


The old Ford was Lar’s first “Hybrid Gas-Electric” conversion, with a four-cylinder engine charging the huge batteries hidden under the box. He also equipped it with full-time all-wheel-drive. Susan took it out for a short test-drive and after pronounced it “Perfect.”

Farkleberry sold it to her at a loss—figuring rightly that the buzz caused by Susan enjoying the benefits of hybrid-technology would result in some demand for it. She agreed not to discuss what she actually paid.

On the road back to Williams’ Station…Susan chose to take the long-way back—through the South-end of Danger Bay, with Chris following on her way back to PawZ—shortly after she entered the harbor area; Susan stopped suddenly. There it was, her new restaurant.

Susan stopped suddenly

There it was, her new restaurant.

She turned in to the parking lot and Chris followed; her curiosity piqued—she had never noticed this place—and it was a wreck.

Look at this, Chris. It’s perfect!”

Boarded-up restaurant

“Look at this, Chris. It’s perfect!”

Windows broken and haphazardly boarded over, parking lot overgrown with weeds, Chris was less-than impressed, “Are you sure?”

Of the building? No. Of the location? Absolutely!” Susan wouldn’t know for sure until she could get inside, “There’s a phone number on the door, I’m going to call the Realtor®. Hmmmm…I wonder if she’s related to Boomer?”


Same last name.”

    Methinks thinks Fluttermatters that the acuity provided vis a vis the Elton John pink diamond encrusted with blue tooth and now thanks to the Master, WIFI capable spectacles has noticed a distinct lacking in the goings on around the bay. The Bay has planes, and automobiles of every description but to this keen eye one thing is missing – trains. Having discussed this with the Master at length it seems that it is time for the curmudgeon to get his CHOO CHOO on. :”)

    Fair it is to say methinks thinks Fluttermatters, that with this casual observance of things array it would be wise to get the clickety clack out of here.
