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.
After many hours of research he began to smile. Using his landline phone he made a call to an old friend—and former collaborator…
Season 8—Chapter 11—Airfield—Episode 10:
Back to the hidden cave—as our unnamed protagonist is joined his old friend…also as-yet unnamed. They began to collaborate on a wicked-good plan—a plan, GENTLE READER, the details of which are so secret—even I have no clue what they might be…
I JUST BET WE WON’T LIKE IT!
Meanwhile, outside the cave, Flutters made note of the 1950’s-era runabout as it entered the cave and also made note of the fact he must return to the airfield—mostly because he could not radio his information back. Instead he had to fly back. He made a note to talk to Farkleberry about this—yes he would.
He bade farewell to his seagull companions set-out for the airfield.
About the same time at Seven Tables—our heroes noticed AJ & Susan had left… “How’d they DO that?”
“I don’t have a clue, Chris,” Sarah replied, “But this sort of thing is rather common on this blog.”
“Boomer’s not always good at segueways,” Big Mac rumbled, “He should practice.”
“I heard that, Carl; I’m in the same room, y’know.”
“I hadn’t noticed.”
“Well, for your information, Carl,” Boomer was a little indignant and it showed in his voice, “Susan and AJ are arranging flying lessons; he is going to teach her how to fly a helicopter. AJ wants to build a search & rescue/medivac operation.”
“MEDEVAC? Why was I not included?” Chris was, after all, more than qualified now as a physician, “Besides, that would leave me as the only one not a pilot.”
“I was just getting to that, Chris. Doc McLean wants to train you on emergency medicine first, then AJ will give you flight lessons. He wants you to meet him tomorrow at his office.”
“Speaking of ‘wants,’ whatever happened to the D-model Mustang?”
“Soon, Jay, soon,” Boomer sighed, “I’ve been kinda busy building that helecopter.”
It was then that Flutters returned with information—and his own “want!”
“Methinks I want to be radio-equipped—my wings are worn-out!”
Lar Farkleberry smiled.
