PREVIOUSLY: Episode 1—Scene 2… At the Moosehead County Courthouse… A funeral was held for Sheriff Boomer, attended by only his closest friends and family. Ojibwe Spirit Chief, Hiram Silverthorn (Ahanu-Ahiga) performed a traditional Ojibwe ceremony.
Chris Shouse, Linda Bryant and Ralph Halvorson, Sarah Cooper, Mac and Collie McIntyre, Jay and Bee Merton, Medford and Bernice Ambrose, Big Mac, Harold Peterson, Fred Jaworski, Daisy, Cujo, Pepper, and Buttons were in attendance.
After the funeral, the courtroom was opened for all others to pay their respects. The line of people stretched all the way outside.
Episode 1—Scene 3… On the way to Moosehead County…in North Duluth… Aleev Bambi and Gina stopped at McDonald’s. Aleev purchased a newspaper as Bambi and Gena went to order food.
“You have got to read this!” Aleev exclaimed.
“It’s time for us to return,” Gina grinned.
Season 13—Adventure 4—Cyber Café—Episode 2—Scene 1… At Boomer’s Place… After the funeral Boomer’s friends gathered to celebrate his passing. When Med and Jay brought the dogs there, Jay winked as he looked at Daisy, “You should go into the kitchen, there’s a Daisy-treat waiting for you.”
Moments later, everyone in the house heard “AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO!”
“AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO! AR-ROOO!”
Cyber Café—Episode 2—Scene 2… Two weeks earlier…While they were hiding in St. Paul, Aleev, Bambi and Gina had not only changed their appearance, but their identities. They became Alan Smith and his wife, Barbara (Jones), and her widowed sister, Geraldine (Jones) Clark.
Combine the carefully crafted name change, and complete history going all the way back to their respective birth dates; and with their complete makeovers, there was no way any human could detect their true identities.
They stopped first in the Port of Danger Bay where they met with Camille Farkleberry, Realtor® and asked about businesses for sale.
Cam Farkleberry just happened to have a listing in Lakeview City she could show them.
They arranged to meet Cam at the former “Bar & Grille” in Lakeview City.

After viewing the interior, Alan made a reasonable “short-sale” offer. Cam knew Isaac “Trigg” Guudlender (sometimes spelled “Goodlender” on these pages) would likely approve the offer; and it helped that her appraiser, Ralph Halvorson had determined the actual value of the bar to be less than the offer Alan Smith made.
Guudlender was no fool, and he made the loan contingent upon certain improvements being made to the building and grounds; they would have the improvements completed before taking title to the property.
That would be no problem, it seems Alan Smith sold the Superior warehouse to the Chicago cartel that owned Autoworld Transit, for the unbelievably low price of $250,000.00. The Smiths didn’t actually own the warehouse; but sold it anyway.
