“Are you out of your mind?”

Season 14—Adventure 4—Gangsters—Episode 5—Scene 1… Inside the Jail… “I found Martha in Pierre, South Dakota and asked her if she would like a little adventure in her life.”

“This Dog-Person scared the livin’ daylights out of me when she first spoke,” Martha added, “I ‘bout jumped out of my skin!”

“You said the ‘M-Word,’ as if it was certain, Martha,” Jimmy Hickok replied, “How can you be so certain?”

“First—I answer to ‘Jane,’ my middle name,” She had an easy smile, “And more importantly—you ain’t got a chance of getting away from me.”

“I expect I’ll not even try.”

Episode 5—Scene 2… 21st Century Moosehead County Sheriff’s Office… “Where are Joey Lacey, and Debra?” Linda asked, “Didn’t they get the memo?”

“I told them to meet us at the Airfield,” Murphy barked, his tail wagging, “I left a note in the rescue operations office.”

“Why did you do that?”

“Can’t a dog have a sense of humor?”

“I already called them, Murphy,” Boomer laughed, “Good luck getting any dog-treats anytime soon.”

“What’s the plan, Boss?” Mac asked, “Or are we waiting for them to get here?”

“I told them the plan,” Boomer replied, “We’re sending the dogs out—to be dogs. Nosing here and there, no more than two together at a time—wherever McGinty and his people meet.”

“As for the rest of us,” Chris continued, “We continue with routine patrols by regular deputies—as if we suspect nothing.”

“What about you, Boomer?” Mac asked, “Are you going to stay safe somewhere?”

“I’m going out on patrol.”

“Are you out of your mind?”

“Why yes, Mac,” Boomer laughed, “Thanks for asking.”

Boomer explained his plan.

Episode 5—Scene 3… Several hours later at the Cabin-on-the-Rock… The entire Rootin’-Tootin’ Posse gathered for two reasons—first, to get out of sight, and second—to PARTY!

“This is all fun—how’s about a plan?” Chris asked.

“In an hour or so, the Coopers & I will be going to Silverthorn’s for a meal and if McGinty is there—we’ll give him a little misdirection action as to where I’ll be later today.”

“Where will that be?”

“Taking ‘Strider’ for a drive outside of Moosehead City,” Boomer replied, “With several friends leading and following in nondescript cars and trucks—no one shadow car for more than a mile or two.”

“I’ll be happy to organize the shadow cars,” Linda offered.

“Do it—thanks!”

    Murphy is a great name for a dog! (My maiden name is Murphy and when I’ve mentioned I’d like to someday name a dog Murphy, my Dad is not amused.)
