“May I help you, gentlemen?”

Vacations Banner ©JBoardman PREVIOUSLY: “CU-CU!” Chris exclaimed, “It was YOU?”


“I didn’t know you could make a mistake.”

“I can when I’m playing cribbage with the entity.”

“So—that explains a lot!”

“It’s the best excuse I can come up with on short notice.”

Kelly Johnson & Andy McCoy were looking for a place to rest after a long day of driving—the two were on a vacation as awarded by James Braddock.

“Hey Kelly, this place looks fine, and I’m tired of being on the road—and so is my butt.”

“Sure—why not?”

It was purely coincidental they picked this motel.

On the other hand, neither of them knew exactly who our heroes and their new friend were—as Braddock hadn’t informed them.

They parked the car and went into the office to check-in.

“May I help you, gentlemen?”

Kelly Johnson & Andy McCoy checked-in ©JBoardman“May I help you, gentlemen?”

“Yes, have you any vacancies? Johnson asked.

“Yes,” he replied, “Several—this is the off-season for us.”

“Very-well, we’ll take two cabins.”

As luck would have it—Johnson’s cabin was right next door to Chris and Wyatt’s cabin.

(Still GENTLE READER™ neither man knew who they were. I guess that’s a good thing…right?)

Johnson called James Braddock—and as he requested, let him know where they were staying.

Unfortunately—JUCO did know and had informed Braddock.


“What do you want us to do, Boss?”

“Just observe for the time being, they’re way too dangerous for you guys to handle alone—I’ll send help your way,” he replied, “Keep me informed on their activities—they don’t know you, so strike-up a conversation if the opportunity presents itself.”

Episode 7—Scene 2… In the Cyber Café—Saint Paul, MN… “Boomer—Teresa welcome!” Jay Merton exclaimed.

Boomer & Teresa joined Mac & Collie in the Cyber Café ©JBoardman“Boomer—Teresa welcome!”

“I thought you’d still be fussing with you farm,” Mac greeted.

“We’re done for the time being,” Boomer replied, “We needed to get back home.”

“Our Saint Paul homestead suffers from a little neglect,” Teresa added, “Well—actually a lot of neglect.”

“Well,” Mac teased, “What are you doing here?”

“We can always find time for old friends,” Boomer grinned, “And a break from HOME-work!”

“And too, we’re both exhausted,” Teresa added.

“So, you Codgers™ finally re-opened the café—it’s been sorely missed since our Active Rain departure.”

“It was time, as our Lakeview City operation is running smoothly, we could return here,” Medford added.

Meanwhile—things are getting serious back up north in St. Louis County…

Our story will be Continued…
