“Is there a next of kin of the sheriff here?”

Codgers Return Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: I’m afraid so,” McLean replied, “He took three bullets to the chest. The docs are doing the best they can to get him stabilized; he’s not responding well, I’m afraid.”

Episode 7—Scene 2… The Holiday Inn… In their room, Aleev and Bambi McOsker, and Gina Mincucci, were almost giddy with the news out of Lakeview City; the sheriff was dead!

“What’s next?”

“We’ll have those two perform a few more hits for us,” Gina smiled in anticipation, “Like that Linda and the guy with the beard at the car dealer.”

“I wonder why we haven’t heard from our hitmen?” Bambi asked.

“That is strange,” Aleev agreed, “They came very highly recommended.”

“Call them.”

“Yes, MA’AM!” Aleev laughed, “I’m sure they’re probably at a bar celebrating. Hmm, No answer. I’ll try their hotel room.”

“Well?”

“No answer, Gina,” he replied, “I’ll leave a message.”

“Is there anybody in Lakeview we can ask?”

“No Bambi,” Gina replied.

Season 13—Adventure 3—Codgers Return—Episode 8—Scene 1… On Historic 61 the pursuers converged on the suspects; giving them no avenue for escape. They surrendered without further incident.

They were pros; and would not talk, except for the one in the black leather jacket, “He’s dead; right?”.

“No, he’s not,” Lieutenant Silverthorn replied after giving him his rights, “You’ve failed in your assignment. Would you care to tell us who hired you?”

“We have nothing more to say.”

They were taken to the Moosehead County jail where they were greeted by the on-duty deputy sheriff as he hissed, “Welcome to your new home, gentlemen. Much as I’d like to beat the living tar out of you; you will be treated as dishonored guests of Moosehead County. You will be arraigned as soon as the judge arrives. Make yourselves at home.”

Episode 8—Scene 2… at Moosehead County Hospital… Cujo arrived with a very-distraught Daisy, “Oh Doc, tell me Alpha-Jack is going to be okay; TELL ME THAT!”

Cujo brought Daisy to the hospital ©Jack Boardman“…TELL ME THAT!”

“You have no idea how much I’d like to tell you what you want to hear,” McLean spoke gently, “I just can’t, he’s in extremely critical condition.”

“Cujo,” Daisy pleaded, “Is there nothing you can do? Warp time to before Alpha-Jack was shot?”

“I cannot this time, I’m afraid,” She replied, “You must prepare yourself; and know that REAL WORLD Alpha-Jack is fine, and will remain so.”

AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO!” Daisy bayed. It was not a happy bay; in her mind, she was clearing a path to the Great Beyond for her Alpha-Jack.

Just then a surgical nurse opened the door and asked, “Is there a next of kin of the sheriff here?”
