“You, Mr. Johnson, will talk—now!”

“Well—oh-KAY, then,” Mac laughed.

They began their trip back to Pine & Carleton counties. Continue reading

“I’ll let you know when it is your turn, Mac.”

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48543597021_f664d75ab6_o.jpgPreviously: Episode 7—Scene 2… Several hours later inside the Posse™ Jail… “Howdy-Do,” Boomer greeted, “How are you, Deputy Sarah?”

“I’m doing fine, Dad,” she replied, “Who do we have we here?”

“We’re not exactly sure, they both refused to give-us their name,” Mac rumbled, “But—if either has been arrested before—you’ll be able to get a name.”
And then turning to their prisoners, Mac grinned, ominously, “Gentlemen?”

“I think they’re here in Pine County!”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “That’s pure BS,” Mac rumbled—more ominously than usual, “You work for Simpson.”

The look on their collective faces answered Mac’s question, “Park your car—you’ll be riding with us.”

“One with me in the back—and one up front with Mac,” Boomer grinned, “Do it!” Continue reading

“Get out of your car!”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “Well—Look-here!”

“Look where, Mac?” Boomer laughed, “Those cars might be connected to Simpson.”

“Grab your Remington .44, and we’ll pay them a visit.” Continue reading

“Well—Look-here!”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “You fellas park in the lot—as you can see, there are only a few mobile homes at this location, and all are vacant,” Keller said as the pulled-up, “I’ll pull over and you can meet me by the car.”

They parked their cars and joined Keller on Pine County Road 47, after looking inside the vacant mobile homes, “They look like hell on the outside—but nice inside.”

“Yeah, Reed,” Keller replied, that was intentional—everything mechanical is modern, and I had the interiors completely remodeled.”

“What are our orders?” Sanders Jones asked.

“Relax and stay out of trouble, for now,” he replied, “Get to know the area, visit some of the cafés and stores in Moose Lake—it’s fishing season—rent a boat and do some fishing.”

“And still get paid?”

“You’re salaried—you’ll get paid every 2 weeks, as long as you work for us.”

“That sounds good to me.”

Season 18—Adventure 1—Searching for Simpson—Episode 6—Scene 1… The Posse™ met outside their HQ… “What’s next?” Chris Earp asked.

“What’s next?”

“You know what, Chris,” Mac rumbled in reply, “We continue to search—I guess.”

“I say we return to Pine County,” Boomer suggested, “And perhaps Moose Lake in Carlton County.”

“We can do that,” Mac replied, “Why not?”

“Perhaps we can all return,” Chris suggested, “And separately check the same places we checked at random times.”

“You expect they won’t notice us?”

“They might,” Chris replied, “But—it’s unlikely they’ll put two and two together.”

“There is that,” Mac rumbled, “Especially if we don’t make it obvious to the locals that we’re looking for anyone by not asking questions—just observing.”

Episode 6—Scene 2… Outside the Modular Mobile Home Park… Chris & Wyatt drove by the mobile home park—and found no-one outside—but noticed some familiar cars parked in the lot.

“Wyatt—stop here!”

“Wyatt—stop here!”

“What did you see, Mrs. Earp?”

“There are two familiar cars in the driveway,” Chris replied, “At least, they look familiar.”

“Okay—but those are very common cars.”

“Let’s leave now—so we’re less likely to be seen.”

(They left—and weren’t seen, Gentle Reader™, a good thing.)

Episode 6—Scene 3… Boomer & Mac outside the Lakes & Pines Motel… “Well—Look-here!”

“Well—Look-here!”

“Look where, Mac?” Boomer laughed, “Those cars might be connected to Simpson.”

“Grab your Remington .44, and we’ll pay them a visit.”

With their firearms ready—but hidden, the two went to the trailer’s and knocked.

A very-senior woman answered the door—and when she saw Mac—a wide smile stretched her mouth, “Well—how DO you do?”

“I’m doing quite well, thank you,” Mac replied, “And we’re terribly sorry to bother you—we’re deputy marshals and we’re looking for a couple of fugitives.”

“And clearly, you’re not one of them,” Boomer added, “We must return to our search.”

The woman, clearly disappointed, smiled and went back into her motel room.

“At least we saw some beautiful country on our search,” Linda sighed, “That was a plus.” Continue reading

Our heroes found no sign of Simpson.

“I may have to go to the ‘Cities.”

“Do it.” Continue reading

“Sacrificial idiots.”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: Keller’s bat-sense informed him—the two men standing away from the bar fit his internal people-judging skills to a tee, “By chance are either or both of you two looking for work?”

“We might be,” the taller of the two replied, quietly, “But we’d rather discuss this outside.”

When they went outside—the tall fellow got right to the point, “You are hiring people to do illegal things, right?” Continue reading

“Where next, Joey?”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: “Let’s park the bikes—I’d like to play tourist for a while.”

“Good idea—I generally don’t hang-out in Nashwauk, so nobody is likely to recognize me.”

The two walked the entire length of the downtown Nashwauk a couple of times and decided to visit the Walk-In Café. Continue reading

“Maybe he went to the Twin Cities again.”

Searching for Simpson Banner ©JBoardmanPreviously: The Posse™ arrived. There were several cars parked outside, and our heroes expected to catch them flat-footed, “Okay folks—get ready to storm the farmhouse—spread-out, we’ll surprise them from front and rear.”

“Roger that, Mac,” Chris Earp replied, “Let’s Git R DONE!”

They took their time—employing their Native friends-taut silent-walking through the forest tactic. Continue reading
