Previously (from Chapter Three):“Say WHAT?” Boomer growled—again, “What the HELL does that have to do with anything, Corporal? You want to serve again? Just tell me why!”
“Because I’m a damn-fine corporal, First-Sergeant!”
“Corporal—grab an ale and then go through yonder door and tell them I sent you—you’re hired!”
With a very-large grin Corporal Ozzie did just that.
Hiram, Chris, Wyatt, Sarah, and Boomer grinned as Ozzie disappeared into the back room.
Previously (from Chapter Four): Chris looked over at Sandra and said, “No more talking of leaving Sandra?”
Sandra’s face lit up like the 4th of July, and she realized she did not have to be afraid ever again. She said, “No more talk of leaving, I do not have to look over my shoulder any longer. I can finally put down roots and I am so glad it is the place I have come to love with people I really care about!”

“The gang is assembling at Silverthorn’s Café in the morning,” Chris suggested—forgetting that it would be Saturday—the day they usually travelled back in time to the 19th Century, “Why don’t you join us?”
“I’d love to.”
The next morning at Silverthorne’s Café we find Larry, Susie, Sandra, Chris, Hiram, Jr., Wyatt, Boomer Carl, Jay and Sarah gathered for breakfast (and really fine coffee) as they did every morning.
This morning was different, however, as all but Chris and Sandra remembered it was Saturday, “I expect you will soon disappear for another romp in the 19th Century, son,”
“I expect so, Dad,” Lt. Hiram Silverthorn replied, “I’d kinda like an actual weekend off in the 21st Century once in a while.”
“Not this weekend,” his father replied as most of them began to disappear—surprising Hiram only in that Susie and Larry didn’t leave, “Why are you still here?”
“I asked Cujo for a vacation in Canada, and she approved it, apparently.”
“Jimmy Hickok and I are headed out on an ‘Airstream vacation’ approved by the Beagamute months ago.”
Sandra just stood there in astonished silence.
