“Good news Joey!”

Every Day Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “I want you each to go to a different stateroom and record the events to the best of your recollections—staterooms 4A and 2B are unoccupied. Do not collaborate with one another. When we arrive in port, the Moosehead County District Attorney, Alphonso Jones, will interview both of you, separately, first, and then together.”

“That sounds a bit scary, Molly.”

“It’s not as bad as you think, Debra,” Molly replied, “I’ve been through it a couple of times.”

“And yet,” Joey quipped, “Here you are—bearing no obvious scars.”

“None that are visible, anyway.”

“You didn’t need to add that,” Debra replied, “Thanks—a bunch!”

Season 13—Adventure 8—Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 7—Scene 1… At the Moosehead County Courthouse… “How do your clients plead?”

“How do your clients plead” ©Jack BoardmanHow do your clients plead?”

“As this was their first offense, they have agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced sentence, Your Honor.”

“Does the prosecution wish to comment?”

“The State will insist on a prison term of not less than ten years’ confinement prior to any chance of parole—IF they name their source for the cocaine. If they refuse to do so, the State requests a minimum sentence of twenty-five years before they’re eligible for parole. The amount of cocaine recovered from the scene demands no lesser sentence.”

“Your Honor! They won’t survive a week, much less than the ten years offered, if they name their source.”

“Very well, I hereby sentence you to serve twenty-five years with no consideration for parole. Bailiff—return these two to jail pending transfer to Stillwater.”

Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 7—Scene 2… Aboard the MV Sparrow… Just as Debra and Joey were about to leave—Molly received a message and motioned them to wait, “Okay—thanks Sheriff.”

“What’s up?”

“Good news Joey!” Molly exclaimed, “The suspects pled guilty—you don’t need to testify!”

“Alright! Now we can get back to seeing what this beast can do!” Debra exclaimed, “Can we get her up on plane?’

“Not possible—but it would fun to try,” Molly laughed, “Pilot—all ahead full!”

They failed to make the Sparrow plane—but had as much fun as one may have piloting a large boat at 25 knots.

Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 7—Scene 3… on Scenic US 61 at the Southern Border of Moosehead County…  After being assigned to ride with Sheriff Boomer at his request, New Deputy Sheriff James Silverthorne, IV, was a little surprised when the sheriff asked him to drive his squad and follow him out on Historic US 61 to set-up a speed trap. Jimmy didn’t recognize the car the sheriff climbed into—but then again he seemed to be a bit of a motorhead—acquiring all manner of unusual cars & trucks.

When they arrived, they found Wyatt there already, “G’mornin’ Wyatt.”

Sheriff Boomer met with Wyatt & Jimmy ©Jack Boardman“G’mornin’ Wyatt.”

“Good morning Boomer, Jimmy,” Wyatt replied, “What ARE you driving?”

“My latest sneaky-squad—prepared by AJ.”

“And the Mercury?”

“Your new squad,” Boomer grinned, “To replace that ridiculous red Pontiac.”

“Yes, boss,” Wyatt laughed, “C’mon, kid, let’s set-up a speed trap and welcome new visitors at the northern border of the county.”

“Good hunting, Boss!” Jimmy shouted as they drove off.
