Previously: MEANWHILE—At Liam and Gypsy’s townhome… The two couples really seemed to hit it off. Both felt it was going to be a very good friendship, one that would last a long time.
On the drive back to Danger Bay, Jimmy was very quiet and thoughtful. He pulled the car off the road—coincidently, at the same spot when Liam had proposed to Gypsy, “Let’s take a walk down by the lake.”
It was a beautiful night the moon shinning on the lake. Jimmy was nervous but he looked at Sandra and dropped to one knee, “Sandra, will you marry me?”
Season 12—Adventure 1—Episode 3… Sandra paused for a moment—the time seemed to Jimmy to be measured in hours…
Sandra looked from Jimmy to the ring he held out, a beautiful diamond that sparkled in the moonlight.
She waited so long to answer that Jimmy began to worry…
“Jimmy I would love to marry you but before you can put the ring on my finger we have to get Mandy’s blessing. This affects her too and I want her to feel part of it.”
Jimmy jumped up with great happiness, “Oh Sandra, I would not want it any other way.”
He reached into his other pocket and pulled out another ring box and handed it to Sandra. Opening it she saw another ring, a birthstone ring with, ‘Jimmy, Mandy and Sandra’ engraved inside. She looked at Jimmy with a huge grin.
“I would not leave her out, I love her already as if she were my own.”
“Well then let’s go pick her up and see if we can get ready to become a family.”
Meanwhile—In Lakeview City… After test driving the car—and loving it, Linda decided to make the purchase.
“Excuse me for a moment—I need to get something from my car,” Boomer said, giving Linda a look clearly stating—“Do not sign anything until I get back.”
Linda picked-up on that immediately and played the “I-am-a-woman-and-will-wait-until-he-comes-back” card.
Felix Henderson understood, “That’s a fine-looking Triumph your—umm…”
“Cousin—and yes, it is.”
“Cujo—I need a little help, please.”
Moments later Boomer returned—the credentials of a FBI Special-Agent assigned to an at-large corporate crime unit—in his wallet (complete with a very-cool badge).
When the price of the Austin was agreed upon, and Linda stated it would be a cash sale, Henderson began filling out the paperwork.
When he completed the bill of sale, he, as expected, handed it to Boomer, not Linda, “I’m buying the car…”
Linda looked over the bill briefly, “Add the following: ‘The buyer may within thirty days from the date of purchase return the car for a complete refund.’ Not because I don’t believe this is a good car—it is because I will have it thoroughly checked by my auto-technician to make sure it is a good as I think it is.”
“So—you don’t trust me?”
“I don’t know you well enough to judge that.”
“Mr. Henderson,” Boomer grinned, “I have found over the years that auto retailers who incorporate that provision, are far less likely to scam buyers.”
Henderson thought for a moment—he could see some business advantages in including that in his contract—even his bad cars generally last longer than thirty days, “I like it—done!”
AND—a few days later when the weekend arrived… our intrepid time-travelers found themselves once again at the Cabin-on-the-Rock.
“I wonder where we’re off to this time?” Sarah thought out loud.
