Previously: “I’ll call Hy and warn him.”
Hiram immediately answered, “Yes, I was a little suspicious of him.”
“Just keep driving, we have Joey and Debra heading directly towards him and cut him off. We’ll pass you and run interference.”
“Okay—that works for me,” He replied and then turned to Lar Farkleberry, “We’d best strap our guns on—we have trouble ahead, I expect.”
Episode Four—Scene 2… Outside Susie’s Grille… William Carstairs met with his new recruits—Amos, Jim, Tim and Terry (whose last names we’ll never know—just like William—because he didn’t need to until time came to pay them) to give them their orders.
When he completed telling them what he expected, Jim had something to say, “We’ll need an advance on our fee—because we have no guarantee you’ll settle-up when we’re done.”
“Fair enough, will five-hundred be enough?”
Season 15—Adventure 2—HIRAM—Episode Five—Scene 1… at the Church of Hellfire & Brimstone… Exactly the place where Amos, Jim, Tim and Terry could a few of their—um—less than savory friends. Friends willing to work cheap. They lived in the hamlet known a “Wilbur,” so named after the Great Grandfather of The Reverend Rupert Festus Wilbur, Jr.
All residents of Wilburville are members of the Church of Hellfire & Brimstone. The church tagline is most telling: “…AND HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE & BRIMSTONE…” Revelations 14:10.” Pastor Rupert Festus Wilbur, Jr. is always armed with his “Sword of the Lord” Colt .45 pistol—believing that he must be prepared for an invasion of Federal Government Special Forces—due any time now, according the reverend.
“…AND HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE & BRIMSTONE…”
Pastor Wilbur was also the owner of an outfit that dealt in franchise opportunities in all manner of businesses. “Franchises Available (800) 777-7777” advertising posted on every business in this part of Cook County.
“There are two fellas from down to Moosehead County on their way, and from what we hear-tell, they’re agents of the US Marshal’s office.”
“Coming to take our guns, are they?” The Pastor assumed.
“That’s what hear.”
“I expect it’s time to assemble my Crusaders for Christ!”
