Previously: “Aye, Laddie,” Mac laughed, “Ye kin look behind ye—thar be kegs o’spiced rum there.”
“Now, don’t that just beat all!” Archie exclaimed, affecting a down-home accent, “I reckon we oughta have a taste—jus t’see if it’s fittin’ fer our establishment.”
About the same time—our vacationing heroes began to arrive…
Sarah & Jay were on final approach to land at Danger Bay Airfield—they would stop at home to make sure the girls were doing well—they trusted they were—but it WAS the parental thing to do! As soon as they walked into their house, “Honestly, Mom, we’re fine!”
Chris & Wyatt were on Historic US 61, a mere ten miles south of Danger Bay, “I wonder if Cujo has located Christine and Lacy?”
“In a way, I hope not,” Wyatt replied, “But—sometimes ‘hope’ is not enough.”
“I HOPE Paul has obtained spiced rum,” Chris grinned, “That would make the Tardis Tavern™ perfect!”
Linda & Ralph landed at Danger Bay Airfield shortly after Sarah & Jay, and they hurried home to freshen-up before heading for Tardis Tavern™—AND to make sure cousin Boomer was aware of what day it is—he’s known for forgetting the day of the week—ya know!
Soon—everyone was at the Tardis Tavern™—And Cujo arrived and announced…
Season 12—Adventure 6—Saskatchewan! Episode 1… “I’ve located Christine and Lacy!”
Chris about snorted her spiced rum out her nose, “WHERE?”
“They’re in Saskatchewan!” Cujo replied, “And plotting to attack a remote Northwest Mounted Police outpost. Your horses are ready, the train equipped—finish your refreshments, quickly please.”
Shortly afterwards—they found themselves aboard the good old “Adventure Train’s Parlor Car” pulling out of the station at Morehead, Minnesota.
It was FULLY-EQUIPPED, by that I mean, GENTLE READER, equipped with all their favorite beverages—including Spiced Rum!
In the RCMP car, Inspector Robert Erik MacIntyre (no relation to Big Mac) and Master-Sergeant Murphy Yatkov were preparing to meet with our heroes, “The outpost must be reinforced—quickly!”
“Yes, Bobby,” Yatkov replied, “The question is: is it even possible?”
“We’ve seen the remarkable speed this train can reach—what I don’t know is how.”
“We could ask…” Yatkov already knew the answer.
“Aye, and they’ll give us the same answer—21st Century magic.”
“They could have brought some of the ‘magic’ along with them. I think they call them ‘SUVs,’ if I’m not mistaken.”
They both laughed.
“Let’s go greet our friends—and ask those questions.”
“Yes Bobby, and watch them squirm!”
