Previously: “I’m tired, I think Daisy and I will go home,” Boomer turned to Linda, “Are you ready?”
“More than ready,” Linda replied, “Ummm—could we stop at Farkleberry’s on the way? I think I’d like to get a car.”
MEANWHILE—At PawZ… Dr. James Red Cloud and Mandy returned from their woodcraft practice—both quite happy—and soaking-wet, “Honestly—you two!”
“But Mom! I found the hidden treasure—with the help of the beagles!”
“And ME—don’t forget about me!” Sunshine huffed.
“Yes, you too, Sunshine,” Jimmy Red Cloud smiled at the precocious-pup.”
“Jimmy,” Sandra smiled, “We need to talk.”
Season 12—Adventure 1—Episode 1… Jimmy had a bunch of stuff go through his head—“Did she want to not let me be around Mandy anymore? Does she know how I feel about her?”
He felt his face getting hot.
Sandra watched the emotions play on his face and had to smile inwardly. Jimmy was so shy and gentle. She loved working with him. She loved the way he treated Mandy and Sunshine. In fact she thought she just might be in love with him, “Don’t look so serious Jimmy; I am not going to bite your head off. I just thought maybe it was time you and I went on an outing together. Just you and I!”
Jimmy was stunned for a moment and turned even redder. “Yes, we can do that—for sure. Where would you like to go?”
“Collie said she would keep Mandy overnight so I thought maybe we could go to Forest City and see the Casino now that it is open and run by friends. I have only met Liam and Gypsy a few times but they are settling in and I would like to get to know them better. We could have dinner and maybe even spend a bit on the machines. What do you think?”
Jimmy was delighted.
They decided to get dry and cleaned up and take Mandy and Sunshine to Collie’s. Then drive on over to Forest City. Since Mandy would be gone all night they could relax and enjoy themselves.
Jimmy was thinking as he took a shower, “Could it be possible she likes me? I already know I love her and Mandy. I wonder…”
MEANWHILE—Boomer and Linda stopped at Farkleberry’s… Lar ALWAYS has several restored cars and trucks—except today, “Wal m’source fer cars has dried-up in the past coupla weeks. I here-tell there’s a place what’s been keepin’ ol’ Heck mighty busy.”
“Wal, Boomer,” Farkleberry replied, “It ‘pears-like they reopened the dealer up in Lakeside City—up 61 in Cook County, an they’re takin’ all th’ cars an’ trucks they kin git their hands on.”
“Where are they getting the cars, do you know?”
“Not fer sure, but the place is in Superior, Wisconsin.”
“Thanks Lar,” Boomer was now curious, “We’ll drive up there and take a look.”
