“What, exactly, do you do?”

Sheriff Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY… The Posse returned and found several of their fellow members in the cabin’s great room, “Well—tell us how you spent these last few minutes in the past.”

“Well, Ralph,” Mac replied, “We had us a time.”

Boomer didn’t seem to be pleased to be back—or so it appeared to Collie, “What’s up?”

“Just thinking, Collie. The county election is coming, and I have to make a decision. Maybe I have.”

“And…”

“I won’t run again for sheriff.”

Season 14—Adventure 8—Sheriff—Episode 1—Scene 1… Outside Boomer’s Cabin… “So—you’re not running for Sheriff?”

“No, Andrew,” Boomer replied, “I am not—YOU could run.”

“Not a chance. I like what I do around these parts.”

“What, exactly, do you do?”

So—you’re not running for Sheriff ©Jack Boardman“What, exactly, do you do?”

“Whatever the writer of this blog assigns me to do, most recently the Airfield Administrator. Not my favorite.”

“What would you like to do?”

“Hmmmm… Be a wrestling promoter—at best a part-time job.”

“There’s a start,” Boomer replied, “How about service & parts manager at one of the Farkleberry operations?”

“Okay,” AJ grinned, “By the way—I don’t seem to have a home here.”

“Danger Bay Lofts,” Boomer suggested, “Go look at what is there, after we visit Farkleberry’s Service & Auto Sales. I’m putting ‘Strider’ into storage—if I can find something to replace it with.”

Episode 1—Scene 2… Farkleberry’s Service & Auto Sales… “I’m looking for something for everyday use, Lar. Something not too large—smaller than the Grey Ghost, but big enough to pull a cargo trailer.”

“Wal—I reckon I kin find ya something.”

“Nothing boring.”

“Have faith—have I ever let ya down?”

“No—no you haven’t,” Boomer laughed, “By the way…”

“I’m looking for a job, Mr. Farkleberry,” AJ said, “And a new place to live here in Danger Bay.”

“Wal—ain’t th’ sheriff’s job open?” Farkleberry asked.

“Just like the old man, here, I’m done with law enforcement,” AJ replied, “And done with airfield administration.”

“As I recall,” Farkleberry got serious, dropping his “hayseed” affectation, “You did a fine job at Lakeview Motors. How about running this operation for me?”

“Can I get my hands dirty? No suit & tie? Occasional time off for adventures?”

“Yup!”

DEAL!” AJ exclaimed, “I have to look at a loft next door—it’s about time to get our own place.”

“Our?”

“Yes—I do have a significant other.”

To be—CONTINUED…
