“SURPRISE!”

Fort Dakota Banner ©J. BoardmanPreviously: Captain Boomer and Company patrolled for many, many miles along the RR line—and found no bad guys.

“Well—this is fun!”

“You think, Joey,” Mac replied, “What you call fun—would be getting ambushed?”

“No,” Joey replied, “But I brought my 21st Century camera—lots of great scenery hereabouts.”

Episode 2…Scene 3… Still in the Black Hills Near Deadwood… Captain Boomer and Company patrolled through a Ghost Town—and imagined it in its hey-day.

“It appears to me—this town didn’t last very-long.”

“Whatever made you think that, Joey?” AJ asked, “The fact that there-is only three buildings?”

“Gee, AJ, ya think?”

Season 17—Adventure 12—Fort Dakota—Episode 3… Scene 1… Black Hills near Deadwood… “Yeah, Mac,” AJ replied, “THAT was my first clue!”

The four rode-on for several miles without incident—but then they heard men talking among themselves—loudly.

“The boss wants us to find them so-called Posse-members, and arrest them,” one of the men said, “I reckon them fellers are nowhere near here.”

“Okay, gentlemen,” Captain Boomer grinned, “Let’s give them a little surprise.”

All four men chambered their Henry Rifles.

Just as the bad guys rounded a curve in the road, Mac said, “SURPRISE!”

Boomer & Company were confronted by Deadwood City Marshals ©J. Boardman“SURPRISE!”

“Aw CRAP!” the leader, Fred Thompson, exclaimed.

All four dropped their weapons and surrendered—they were, after all—bullies and cowards.

Mac dismounted and handcuffed the four, “You fellas are about to occupy your own jail.”

“That ain’t too smart—we own that jail!”

“Only until we get there,” AJ grinned, “Then—it will be our jail.”

“You don’t what you’ll be up against—we have the boss and several deputies there.”

“More targets,” Mac rumbled, “And more bad guys pushing-up daisies.”

“Oh boy,” Boomer grinned as he pulled his sabre out of its scabbard, “Close combat!”

Joey, Mac and AJ also drew their sabres.

The message was received—as confirmed by the wide-eyed looks on Hal Barber and Eric Wilson’s faces.

Episode 3…Scene 2… At the same time in Deadwood… Inside Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon… Wyatt and Chris Earp returned to Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon, along with Debra, Linda, and Ralph.

“Where are Janet Smith, and Willie Jones?” Chris Earp asked.

The Posse went into Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon ©J. Boardman“Where are Janet Smith, and Willie Jones?”

“I don’t know,” James Kramer replied, “Probably at home.”

“He’s lying,” Ralph Halvorson said, “His expression tells a tale.”

“I agree, Ralph,” Wyatt added, “His ears twitched.”

James touched his ear.

Wyatt and Ralph laughed.
