He had heard that Susan Miller sold her operation in Williams’ Station (but retaining the name “Seven Tables” for her use), and heard that there was a new restaurant opening here—but he hadn’t made the connection until now.
“Wal, I might’s well go on inside fer my coffee-n-breakfast—I hope ol’ Hiram won’t be too offended,” he thought out loud as he headed for the door.
“G’mornin’! I’m lookin’ fer sumtin’ ta eat an some coffee.”
“You’re my very-first customer!” Susan exclaimed, “Order whatever you wish—it’s on the house!”
Bit-by-bit, Seven Tables began to fill with searchers and searchees and Susan was quite busy—all the while thinking she wanted something more—she wanted to learn to fly.

“Wow AJ! Do you think I can figure-out how to fly it?”
“I’ll teach you.”
Meanwhile in a hidden cave in a small island—He couln’t understand why his plan didn’t work… His plan was good (he WAS a genius after-all)—but they somehow found a way to foil his great plan. The question was “how?”
He thought about this a long time and finally decided for now, at least, he’d concentrate his next plan. He figured they’d figured-out a way to jam his signal—he began to work on an upgrade to his “Master Interruptor 5000” transmitter.
