“Were you successful?”

Modern LoungePREVIOUSLY: Jay toured the lounge with Erik Ohara of Moosehead County Real Estate.

“It’s in good shape.”

“It is, Jay,” O’Hara replied, “The owner was incompetent, but not a slob.”

“So, it would seem, how much does he want for the place?”

“He has an offer on the place already—but is holding-out for a better offer.”

“Who’s his agent?”

“Me,” O’Hara replied, “But the buyer seems a bit (how shall I say this?) crooked.”

“It would be wrong of you accept a lower offer, then?” Jay asked.

“Yes—however if you offer a dollar more?”

“Is that ethical?”

“It’s borderline—but, if you have a standing-offer of a dollar more—what else can I do?”

“Were you successful?”

“Completely successful, Al,” Jay replied, “The deal was made, and I’m the proud owner of ‘Jay’s Lounge,’ lock, stock and barrel.”

“Perfect,” Keller said, “When do you take possession?”

“The transaction will be completed next week,” Jay replied, “I’ll take possession then.”

“Good, that should work-out very well,” Keller replied, “Right Al?”

After Jay left—the two very-bad guys both grinned from ear to ear, “How long before we eliminate Jay”

“Well, Mr. Keller—after we purchase the lounge from Jay.”

“Well, Jay” Boomer asked, “How did it go?”

“How did it go?”

 “I open tomorrow morning,” Jay replied, “And experience informs me that it won’t be long after that—I will be eliminated.”

“I’m sure you’re right,” Mac replied, “WOW—have I got me a hum-dinger of a headache!”

“Why don’t you go home—so Collie can work her magic on that,” Boomer laughed.

“I think I will,” Mac grinned as he prepared to leave, “It’s already lessoned a bit.”

“Oh GOOD!” Jay exclaimed, “We do get tired of your grumping!”

“Yeah,” Debra joined-in, “Make like a tree—and leaf-already!”

“Out—out—OUT WITH YOU!” Chris exclaimed, “What a buzz-killer you are.”

After Mac left—the remaining Possewere concerned—Mac was almost never sick. He seemed to have a stainless-steel constitution.

“Does anyone remember Mac being sick?” Boomer asked.

“You and I go back a long time,” Chris replied, “And I simply can’t remember Mac ever complaining.”

“I know I’m worried,” Jay said—summing-up everyone’s concern.
