“Is deadly force authorized?”

Joey in Charge Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Chris opened the meeting of the posse, “How about you, Mac?”

“Oh no,” Mac replied, “I’ve held that job several times.”

“Boomer?” Chris asked.

“Nope,” He replied, “I write this crap!”

“I nominate, wait for it—wait for it—Joey,” Debra, with a truly wicked grin, suggested.

“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” Joey exclaimed.

“All those in favor?” Debra asked.

“Aye,” all but Joey replied.

“The ‘ayes’ have it!” Debra exclaimed, “What next—BOSS?”

“Crap,” Joey sighed, “Very-well then, let’s get down to business. Ideas, anyone?”

Kai Braveheart showed—at the best possible time, “People-dog Linda has been abducted and she’s aboard a train that just left the Danger Bay railroad station.”

Joey wasted no time making a decision, “Adventure Train! We’ll bring our bikes as they’ll take-up less room.”

Season 16—Adventure 6—Joey in Charge—Episode 2—Scene 1… Aboard the Adventure Train… The bikes were loaded (into the secret lower-level garage—this 21st Century NEW “Adventure Train” had all the amenities as the 19th Century Adventure Train).

The train slowly left the station.

Head ‘em up—move ’em out!” Joey channeling “Rawhide” gave the order.

“Really, Joey?”

“Why not, Debra?” Joey replied, “I’ve waited years just to be able to say that.”

“No doubt.”

“I don’t need this abuse,” Joey laughed, “I’m heading down to the Operations Center.”

“Is this REALLY Joey?” Debra asked.

Chris too, was a little surprised as well, “Have I created a monster?”

“No, Chris,” Debra laughed, “I was being facetious. Joey—behind his humor—is a very-serious person.”

“Our place is to assist Joey right now—he’ll need our support,” Boomer observed, “So too, will Linda—someone has to keep her from killing her captors.”

“That’s an issue?” Chris asked.

“Yeah—she’s a redhead—and I’m betting she’s angry.”

Episode 2—Scene 2… Aboard the Jones Train on the Run… “You’ve been recruited because you each have a solid reputation—and the fact you are women,” Jonathan Jones explained, “Until now I’ve only hired men and I’ve been let down thus far.”

“And your prisoner?” Missy Anders asked, “Is deadly force authorized?”

Aboard the Jones Train on the run ©JBoardman“Is deadly force authorized?”

“Absolutely not, she is worth far more alive,” Jones replied, “See to her needs with no less than two of you at all times.”

“You will also be responsible for the computer-tracking monitors,” Hale added, “They are tied into a train-spotters network. You’ll be able to see if any trains are following us.”

“And what good will that do? It’s not like we can easily stop a train.”

“We can stop a train.”
