“Life is good!”

Fugitive Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: He returned to Moosehead Real Estate and made a cash offer—not full price, of course.

A day later the attorney handling the estate of the previous owner accepted the offer.

“Now,” he thought, “I can begin to assemble my new staff.”

He sent out the word that he was hiring to a source he trusted, and she, in turn, contacted six very-accomplished individuals whose résumés were impeccable.

Episode 5—Scene 3… Jerkovich Photography… Donna Wilson was working her first solo shift.

Ten minutes into it—her first customer, Bill Carlson walked in, “Good morning, ma’am, I just moved-in to my new place and I’m looking for some artwork to fill a rather boring blank wall.”

“Welcome,” She replied, “Look around the showroom and see if anything strikes your fancy. If not, we have several photographers willing to provide custom photos.”

Neither person recognized the other.

Season 15—Adventure 5—Fugitive—Episode 6—Scene 1… Carlson decided which photos he wanted and returned to his place. After hanging the photos, he began to assemble his new “associates.”

One by one the applicants arrived—and after preliminary questioning, he dismissed all but six.

Carlson hired the six new associates—Henry James, Ralph Johnson, Wilson McCarty, Frank McClain, Jerry Peterson, and Robert Jones.

Episode 6—Scene 2… A Courtroom in Saint Paul… “It pains me to no end that you’ve been granted immunity, gentlemen, for your testimony. You should all be facing some serious prison. You may leave—but do NOT return.”

“Yes, Your Honor.”

The judge was silent for some time—on purpose.

A full ten minutes passed before he continued…

“Reverend Wilbur, you are free to go—but, I warn you NOT to re-form your so-called ‘Militia.’ If you do—you will feel my wrath. Understood?”

“Yes, Your Honor.”

“Your Honor, my client’s name has been legally changed to Gates Read.”

“Thank you, counsellor,” the judge replied, “Reverend Read, you are free to go.”

Episode 6—Scene 3… Kellogg Boulevard Courthouse entry… Anticipating the outcome, Read’s attorney had arranged for his truck to be delivered to St. Paul and it was awaiting him as he left the courthouse.

“Life is good!” Read thought.

For now, Reverend—for now.
