“Let’s git’em!”

Every Day Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Good morning sir, do you know why I pulled you over?”

“To give me an invitation to the policeman’s ball?”

“Oh HECK no!” Boomer replied, “I pulled you over to welcome you to Moosehead County and its tourist attractions.”

“You’re not going to give me ticket?”

“Nope,” Boomer grinned, “Just a warning—these roads can be dangerous. If fact, there’s a hairpin turn a quarter-mile ahead—you would have found yourself wrapped around a tree.”

“Understood—and a bit surprised.”

“Please make sure you stop at Silverthorne’s Café, enjoy a fine meal and pick-up the available brochures detailing what we have to offer.”

“Will do Sheriff—and I’ll watch my speed.”

Season 13—Adventure 8—Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 8—Scene 1…

“Welcome to Silverthorn’s Café,” Hiram Silverthorn greeted the couple, “Tourists?”

“Yes, up from the ‘Cities,” the husband replied, “Does your sheriff always function as a tourist information source?”

“How fast were you going?” State Trooper Sergeant Todd McCoy asked.

“Umm—70?”

“You’re very lucky,” Todd laughed, “I would have given you a ticket right after welcoming you to Moosehead County, I assume you weren’t ticketed?”

“After a lecture—no, we weren’t,” The missus replied, “We were instructed to stop here for brochures and lodging recommendations. And to obey all speed limits and traffic laws.”

“I can help you out with lodging,” Karen Thayer said, “I own Karen’s Kozy Kabins right across the road from the bay. We offer a 10% discount for first time guests.”

“And we have a Silverthorn’s Café within walking distance of Karen’s,” Hiram handed the missus a packet of brochures, “In this packet are coupons for a 10% discount at all Silverthorn’s locations in Moosehead County.”

“All this hospitality—because we were caught speeding?”

“Nope, in spite of it,” Hiram laughed, “We always treat visitors as guests here—although discounts end when you run out of coupons.”

“I see you have ‘Gratis on a Portis with Escoffier Sauce,’ there’s a place in St. Paul that serves it—my favorite on their menu,” the mister said.

“Ah,” Hiram grinned, “Jim and Sally’s, right?”

“Yes.”

“We gave them the recipe—twenty years ago.”

Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 8—Scene 2…Near the northern border of Moosehead County… Wyatt and Jimmy set-up their speed trap, “Now—we wait.”

Law enforcement is sometimes boring—especially when parked at the side of the road or on stake-outs. The time just drags by.

Minutes seem like hours—hours seem like days—there are only so many times one might ask “How ‘bout those Vikings?” or “The Twins really suck this season.”

Fortunately, our heroes only had to wait fifteen minutes before their first victim rounded the bend and bore-down the road at 75mph.

      Moosehead County is financed completely through profits from Silverthorn’s businesses; Casino, taverns & cafes along with small land lease fees the Eagle Point Band of Ojibe assess all citizens of Moosehead County for use of their land. Also, the Farkleberrys make huge donations from their immense profits from all their businesses.
      That said… OH YEAH WE WRITE TICKETS TO THOSE WHO DESERVE THEM (especially the smart-asses)! 😀
