Prologue Part I

Moosehead County Story Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “I have cold sandwiches, chips, and a salad for each of us in the squad; for when you’re ready to eat.”


“No, coffee in your Thermos® bottle; HOT.”

“Thanks. I hate to say this, Mac,” Boomer sighed, “I don’t care if he lives, or dies.”

“I’m sorry, sheriff,” Doc McLean said as he came out of the operating room, “He’s critical; but he’ll live.”

“Good; then I can send him a Christmas card at Stillwater prison every year.”

Season 13—Adventure 5—Moosehead County—Prologue Part I… We’ll get back to this story—but now I need to tell you a little something about the county.

As many of you know, I’ve updated The Port of Danger Bay Village.

And I’ve updated Danger Bay Harbor.

And created Lakeview City.

So now—it’s way past time to re-imagine Downtown Moosehead City. Up until now, I’ve used a four-plus blocks deep master image, but found it cumbersome to assemble. What I’ve done is to make Moosehead City a smaller town arranged mostly along “Main Street,” with occasional glimpses of a parallel residential street.

We’ll start with Downtown Moosehead City. You may step off the bus here.

From left to right: Farkleberry’s Custom Collectible Cars; Tom’s Tavern; Pete’s (a bar); Sadie’s Buffet; a closed bar for sale; Winslow’s (a seller of high-end-appearing furniture and ripped-off artwork); Silverthorn’s Fine Dining; Moosehead Real Estate Services (owned by Cam Farkleberry) and finally Farkleberry’s Star Service of Moosehead City.

Do you notice anything missing?

A grocery store?

A hardware store?

There aren’t any, anymore. We’ll get back to that a little later.

Schools, churches, and the Works Progress Administration Public Libraries, as they are in Danger Bay, are located in the residential area of Moosehead City.

Alright, we’re done here—let’s get back on the bus.
