  10. Henry ordered a couple of drinks for CJ and himself. He then replied to CJs question "ever since the war it seems like trouble has been following me around. I dont go lookin for it, it just finds me, I swear." CJ said "well maybe you just need a change of lifestyle. Maybe that purty young gal you was a talking to might be just what you need." Henry replied after thinkin a minute "you might be right and she shore nuff is a purty little thing for sure. Just then Captain John and Amos stepped through the swinging doors. Henry motioned them over to the table. As Captain John sat down he said "well things are still in one piece here as well as he noticed several of his crew scattered around the saloon. I've been going around town checking up on everyone and so far there's been no trouble caused by any of my boys. So I think it would be best if we head for home in the morning. Amos go around the saloon and let the boys know the plan." Amos got up and began making the rounds informing the cowboys in Captain John's crew. Henry said" Cap, I won't be heading back with you all. I've got some unfinished business with a gal I met. Her daddy has a ranch east of here a ways. I'm gonna go out there and continue where we left off when we were rudely interrupted. "What's her father's name?" Captain John asked. "I didnt get her last name or her daddy's name but he owns the Circle R ranch." Henry replied. Captain John said "Owen Richard's. I've met him. He seems to be a decent man. Henry we'll miss you on the ride home. Come see me in the morning and collect your pay. I sold the cattle and got a good price. All of you boys will get a little extra for helping get the cattle here in good shape. See you in the morning." Captain John got up from his chair as he finished his drink and as he and Amos headed for the door he paused and directed this remark to those in his crew "you boys stay out of trouble for the rest of the night. So far everyone has had a good time and no one has gotten thrown in jail. Let's keep it that way. Be ready to ride in the morning. Good night." He and Amos then left through the swinging doors. Henry and CJ had another couple of drinks and talked of what happened, the war and such. Henry then decided it was time to call it a night if he was going to get up early to collect his pay and get cleaned up to pay Anna Nichole a visit. Morning found the cowboys slowly getting ready to hit the trail. Some were saddling up others were in line at the chuckwagon where Captain John was doling out their pay. When Henry got his pay be began saying his goodbyes to his friends. As Santos and Cholo mounted their horses Henry waved to them and said "Hasta La Vista mi amigos." He then headed to the mercantile for some new clothes, the bathhouse and barber shop. He had also decided to ask brother Elmer to ride with him out to the Circle R ranch. Marshall Matt gave the ok for Elmer to accompany Henry. The two brothers saddled their horses and left town headed east. They came upon the ranch mid afternoon. When they got close to the gate of the ranch house, the sentry on the watch tower fired his Winchester into the air and hollered out "riders comin!"
  11. Anna Nichole replied " I tried a sip of daddy's whiskey once and I didnt like it, but thank you anyway". Henry said " if the barkeep can make something special and without alcohol for a lady, would you join me at a table and we could get to know each other better". Anna replied "I'd like that. I'll be at that table in the corner". Henry stepped up to the bar and said "barkeep, give me a whiskey and I need something special for a lady with no booze in it". The bartender was a large burly man named Ross. He was good natured but could handle the trouble that came along with running a saloon. He replied to Henry "I think I can make something the lady will like. I'll have one of the girls bring your drinks to the table". "Much obliged" Henry replied as he tossed a couple of coins on the bar and headed to the corner table where Anna Nichole was patiently waiting. As Henry sat down he couldn't help but admire Anna's reddish brown hair, the way she looked in her homemade dress and her overall attractiveness. Henry hadn't felt like this in a long time, maybe never. The saloon girl brought their drinks and set them on the table. Henry slid Anna's drink across the table to her, picked up his whiskey and proposed a toast. " Heres to the purtiest gal I've ever seen" Henry said. Anna blushed as they clinked their glasses. She cautiously took a sip and smiled. "That's very good. Thank you". "Dont thank me. Thank the barkeep. He said he had a special drink for a special lady. Looks like he knew what he was talking about". "Tell me about yourself, Henry. What brings you to town?" Anna asked. Henry replied "I came into town with the cattle drive. Had a little issue with some fellers, the Marshall got involved, but that's all cleared up now. I'm sure I look like the devil. I planned on getting cleaned up and getting some new clothes before I came in here but I just thought I needed to stop in here first. Im glad I did." "Im glad you did too. I might not have met you if you'd had been gettin a haircut a shave a bath and new clothes, all that you could desperately use, I might add, but I can't stay too long. "Why's that?" Henry asked. Anna replied " Daddy sent my brother and I into town to pick up supplies. Our wagon is loaded and my brother Ted likes the saloon on the other end of town. He'll probably be looking for me soon. I'd better go" Anna said as she finished her drink. "Wait, when will I see you again? How can I find you?" Henry asked. "My dad owns the circle R ranch about ten miles east of town. You can find me there. I'd be pleased if you'd come calling some time. But be prepared. Daddy and my brothers are all very protective of me." At that moment a cowboy who obviously had too many whiskeys staggered through the swinging doors. "Anna Nichole, what are you doing in here? I been lookin all over town for you. Who's that you're with?"
  12. Just a dusting of snow here south of Powell. Its -4 now.
  13. "I can't stand rudeness in a man, won't tolerate it." "I said I never had much use for one. I didnt say I didnt know how to use it."
  14. One of the cowboys they call Duke answered miss Margaret's question about where captain John was. He said " the captain had some business to take care of and then he's got the cattle to sell. You know the captain he's all business most all of the time. But I'm sure he'll stop in for a drink and to tell you hello at least." Duke said this while a young saloon girl named Louisa held on tightly to his arm. Duke looked right handsome after a bath, haircut and shave, new clothes and a new hat. Louisa wanted him to herself and didnt want any of the other girls to get any ideas of moving in on her man. Back at the jail Marshall Matt told Cholo and Santos that they were free to go and join their friends in the fun and they quickly skedadled out the door. Gradually the others who were gathered there, including Captain John made there way outside and off to do other things. Captain John was off to find the cattle buyer and stop by the bank. This left the three brothers, CJ and Deputy Hank in the office. When Matt brought up the deputy idea again Henry stopped him short and said "hold on Matt. I've got to think about that some. I've been alone and drifting for some time now and being tied down to being a lawman, well I don't know how that would feel. But you can be sure that if trouble gets stirred up I'll be there to back my brothers.
