Previously: “And I reckon,” Cooper was still grinning at the friendly banter, “It’s time to get on the trail to Fort Justice.”
“If it’s all the same to you, fellas, I’ll just stay here—to protect my interests.”
“Coward,” Linda muttered.
“No Ma’am,” Simpson replied, “With all the hooligans roaming the territory, my employees and I have a vested interest in protecting this mine—we do contribute to the operation of the fort—and economy—of Fort Justice.”
“It’s true, Linda,” Colonel Cooper added, “Adelbert contributes more to our economy than all the other businesses and mines—combined. You couldn’t have known that.”
An hour later, Cooper & Company were on the trail to Fort Justice.

Well—for starters—Our heroes were yanked back to 2015 quite unexpectedly—they had so much to accomplish before Dalton’s Raiders arrived, “Well—I certainly wasn’t expecting this.”
“Sorry, Paul,” Mac replied, “We were there for the entire weekend.”
“We were only there for Sunday,” Ralph said, “I REALLY need to practice my fast-draw.”
“Sadly,” Paul added, “I do as well. THAT was embarrassing.”
“I’ll contact Cujo,” Boomer agreed they both required practice, “I’ll ask her to send your 19th Century outfits—our horses are already here and at our stable. You may practice drawing—and riding at your convenience.”
“I’m pretty excited about my Danger Bay business,” Ralph grinned, “Thanks to Camille Farkleberry, I have an office in her building. I’m looking forward to exploring the county to get a handle on appraising properties.”
“And I will show you around,” Linda grinned, “How do you feel about games of chance?”
“Yep, Silverthorn’s Casino. What was Forest County is now part of Moosehead County. It’s a great place to start your county tour.”
“Only if we stop first at our own new home,” Ralph grinned, “Camille Farkleberry owns it—next door to Cousin Boomer’s place.”
“You’re full of surprises.”
“Saturday was quite useful for me as well,” Paul added, “Thanks to Camille, as well, I’ll be closing next week on my ‘English Style” pub—which includes living quarters.”
“A pub? REALLY?” Boomer quipped, “By all means, let’s go see it!”
“How about by car,” Paul replied, “It’s a dreadfully long walk.”
