“Si Senorita Lacy”

Siege of Fort Justice BannerPreviously: Dalton’s raiders had crossed over into Colorado and everyone was relieved to get out of the dust and into a lot of pine tree’s where it was cooler. The terrain was steeper but the coolness made up for that.

It had taken the group about thirty days to get this far but they were in no hurry. There had been plenty of stagecoaches to relieve the passengers of their material items. One even had a payroll on it which was unexpected. No more Pinkerton men were found. 

Lacy had a plan for their crossing of the southern half of Utah before they reached the border and Fort Justice. She discussed this plan with Edward and Arturo, “There is a town along the Colorado River and while the stagecoaches have been enough to sustain us so far we need an influx of money to get plenty of ammunition and supplies. I know Fort Justice is undermanned so we should have no problems but the miners may be another story. We must be prepared, agreed?”

Season 12—Adventure 3—Siege of Fort Justice—Episode 3… Both Edward and Arturo agreed.

“This is what I want done, we cannot ride into the settlement with this many men as it would raise alarm. There is a trading post there and the starting of a bigger town,” She explained, “In the town is a bank, which I understand is quite robust. The trading post does a good business helping settlers and people headed for the silver mines with supplies, and crossing the Colorado River.”

Lacy paused as if deciding something in her mind—indeed she was. She knew there was also a boarding house there where she might get a bath and a room. A mischievous grin covered her face and her eyes sparkled with anticipation,   “Arturo, when we get close I want you to lead the men around the town and head for the border into Nevada. Edward you, Paulo and Miles and I will head into the settlement. It may take us a couple of days to scout around and find out the best time for us to hit the bank. You and the men will wait for us at the border. Any thoughts gentlemen or questions?”

Edward and Arturo looked at each other.  Edward with a grin and Arturo with a frown.

“No, Lacy, it sounds like a good plan and I have no doubt we will be successful in relieving the bank of our much-needed funds,” Edward said.

“Si Senorita Lacy,” Arturo, not looking directly at Lacy, replied, “I will lead the men and we will wait for you at the border.”

Dalton’s raiders had crossed over into Colorado “Si Senorita Lacy,” Arturo, not looking directly at Lacy, replied

MEANWHILE—In 2015 Danger Bay… Paul, Boomer, Mac, and Camille inspected the living quarters and both levels of the pub, and paused a few minutes in the main room, “This will work?”

Paul, Boomer, Mac, and Camille inspected “Boomer and Mac don’t seem to be employed,” Cam grinned.

“It will more than ‘work,’ Camille,” Paul replied, “While I’m quite qualified to bar tend, I expect I’ll need to hire a bartender, and, perhaps, some servers—any suggestions?”

“Boomer and Mac don’t seem to be employed,” Cam grinned.

Paul looked hard at his friends…

  1. “Si Senorita Lacy” yes means NO NO NO Senorita Lacy, not that telling her that would do any good!

    Nice pub! A place for us to wet our whistle for sure..and in style..the woodwork on the bar and tables is beautiful. Are we going to be able to have food here too? How about bowls of peanuts and we can throw the shells on the floor? 🙂

      I reckon Paul must answer those questions… and be prepared to sweep-up the shells. 😛

    • I reckon all the jumping back and forward through time confronting ‘up to nogooders’ deserves fine food as well as drink Chris. Also a specially extended area for the true heroes, the wonderful animals that make any success possible?

        There is a quite large patio out back (redrawn from the one in the tavern illustration), where our intrepid time-benders may all gather together. All part of the modifications you will make to this establishment. 😀

  5. …..Oh and as for the peanuts, there’s a hygiene reason not to eat bar peanuts…..

      A germy shell-covered hardwood floor is not only germy and demeaning to the floor; it’s a fire hazard. I REALLY DON’T WANT TO DRAW A BURNING TAVERN! 😛

    Come to think of it… the best reason for not allowing peanut shells on the floor: I SIMPLY CAN’T ILLUSTRATE A PEANUT-SHELL COVERED FLOOR… :-/
