“WHO did you say is in town?”

Simpson Banner ©J. BoardmanPreviously: “Have you seen Allen Simpson?”

“No,” He replied, “I don’t believe I know Mr. Simpson.”

“We’re searching for him,” Chris Earp replied, “We believe he may have headed this way.”

“Who is the town marshal, Deputy Smith?’ Big Mac asked.

“Tim Conway—an easy-going fellow,” he replied, “He’s already popular with the town-folks.”

“I reckon we’d best visit the saloon,” Boomer suggested, “That’s one place where that those who know—go.”

Episode 2… Scene 3… Moosehead City Saloon… ”Howdy-do strangers.” One of the Town Marshals populating the saloon greeted, “Welcome to our favorite saloon.”

 “It appears,” Mac rumbled, “To be the only saloon in Moosehead City.”

­­­“Well—there is another over in Flyspeck.”

“We’ve been there as well,” Mac replied, “Their whiskey seems to be half-water.”

“Ain’t that the truth,” the deputy agreed.

“These fellers look like trouble to me, Jimmy.”

“Is that so?” Jimmy replied, “Mebbe it is.”

Season 17—Adventure 13—SIMPSON—Episode 3… Scene 1… Moosehead City Saloon…  Big Mac’s face was dominated by his wide smile as he rumbled—ominously, “The only trouble there will be is if you start it.”­

One of the men started for his gun.

BIG MISTAKE!

Before he touched the gun’s handle—he had four Remington 44s pointed at him.

He slowly removed his hand away from his gun, “Okay—OKAY, I get the message.”

“We really don’t want trouble,” Wyatt Earp said, “I’m Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp, and I prefer avoiding gunfights.”

THAT—impressed them enough for them to back-down and get friendly.

They would, however, report the encounter to Simpson.

Episode 3… Scene 2… An hour later at Simpson’s Cabin… “WHO did you say is in town?”

Simpson met with his gang ©J. Boardman“WHO did you say is in town?”

“Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp,” Tim Conway replied.

“Were there others with him?”

“Three others—they didn’t give their names.”

“I think I know,” Simpson replied, “We need more men!”

“They’re that dangerous?”

“Just shut-up and get out and find more men.”

Episode 3… Scene 3… A week later at Simpson’s Cabin…  Lloyd Carter, Lauren Hebert, Bob Meek, Mark Peterson, & Tim McMahon were brought to Simpson’s cabin by Conway and Simpson’s other men.

Simpson interviewed each man.

He was surprised by the quality of each—testament to Conway’s insistence on personally approving of each man, “Perhaps Mr. Conway has earned the job of foreman of the gang.”
