The old fighters were particularly unsuited to search missions—they simply cannot fly slow enough to be thorough searchers. Each would make several passes through each inlet.
It was on the second pass that Boomer saw what he thought might be their quarry and made a third pass for confirmation—it would have been better if sharp-eyed Daisy had been in her usual place in the second seat, “Sarah, I found it beached in Cross Creek inlet. The brush is too thick to see anyone, I’m afraid.”
“Thanks. I think we should explore the nearby roads—even though I don’t expect to find much—the tree canopy is pretty thick.”
They found nothing.
Season 8—Chapter 4—Fighting Back—Episode 6
Later that day—at Silverthorn’s Café… The usual suspects met over much-required coffee. The operation had been a success—to a point. That Phillip Biggs and a few of his top lieutenants had escaped was most unfortunate—but the Cartel had been stopped completely. There would be no further attempts at establishing legal (or otherwise) gambling—unless the Eagle Point Ojibwe (as established by treaty & Minnesota Statute) did it—and thus-far the elders did not seem inclined to do so.
Just in case you might be wondering GENTLE READER, we haven’t heard the last from Phillip Biggs—no we haven’t!
About the same time—at Miller’s Clipper Inn… Susan Miller & Grey Wolf James Silverthorn surveyed the refurbished restaurant. Jimmy Silverthorn had helped Susan when he was not managing Seven Tables in Williams’ Station, as had several of Susan’s other Seven Table’s employees, the Farkleberry brothers and many boat crewmembers—all excited about having a first-class restaurant designed just for them.
This was no greasy spoon café, this was elegant, without being pretentious, the menu was incredibly diverse, with northwoods meals, cajun quisine, and southern comfort dishes, plus the best baked goods this side of Seven Tables (and perhaps everywhere else—if you catch my drift).
The hours of operation, 1100hrs – 2200hrs (11am – 10pm), suited them as well—most were confirmed customers of Silverthorn’s Café for breakfast, they even had a minibus to take them to and from the café—and they weren’t about to change that.
Susan had interviewed and selected good people to staff the restaurant, including a couple from Seven Tables.
An hour later—at the Depot… Once again Larry Yatkowsky and Larry FlutterMatters find themselves drawn to this place—why?
