From Saint Paul to Danger Bay…

…yet another “link-post” from Jay & Boomer—

Jay & Boomer in Front of Silverthorn’s © 2007 Jay MertonIt’s a comfortable 66ºF here on my back porch, after a string of very hot & dry days followed by a couple of severe thunderstorms causing damage around the city. Boomer & I are here in body only, but much as the former “Codger Lodge” would draw me away in spirit at least—so too does Danger Bay!

So, in spirit, Boomer & I are enjoying our mugs of  organically & shade-grown, fair-trade, French Roast coffee this morning on the boardwalk of Silverthorn’s Café. Medlar Farkleberry has just opened his “Star Service” station (full service only, thank you very much), and if you look closely, you’ll barely make out Hiram Silverthorn & sons inside the café.

I’ve resisted the urge to post all weekend, concentrating on my graphics instead and Boomer posted yet another genealogy post to Our Saint Paul. Now this is interesting—his genealogy posts are the only ones that have drawn hits through Google! I noted several hits on Saturday using search terms that identify (probably) gray-hairs looking for information—they (we) are very active doing on-line research (who says the internet is just for young folks?).

So this is yet another blatant attempt to draw you to “Our Saint Paul.” Today we re-introduce you to a “Codger” who has agreed to join the cast of Danger Bay and a brand new character based upon an Active Rainer of fine repute. Wanna know who they are?

There’s but one way to find out (I crack me up)!

You have certainly outdone yourself with the graphics.  I couldn't paint my way out of a four walled room.

Jay -- So that image of Silverthorn's and Star Service -- is very early morning before the sun comes up?  Or evening?  I love the way the street lights glow!!

I'm no expert, but. . . . .

Hint, hint.  For Google juice, don't begin a title with "Episode Five".  Not many folks are going to be searching for that. 

Family, La Crosse, Stillwater are all good search terms in the title of the genealogy post.

Maggie: Cyber-Maggie now manages the office of "Sparrow Boat Tours."

Peep: Good thing I'm not painting, huh!

Cheryl: Except in June, it is dark when I arise every day...best time of the day, pre-dawn.

Lenn: Good point. I hope you appreciate the cars & truck now displayed.

Jay, OK I took the bait, and went over to your other blog, just call me a fish.  

So you are going to be a tease and make us wait to find out who is coming through the door.

Your cast of characters are starting to grow with Trigg Guudlender, Maggie Florida, and Cyber-Daisy, but could the new character be???

Very Soap Opera like ...... LOL

Fish: I REALLY hope you enjoyed the visit to Danger Bay. If I can't win readers with a compelling story--then tricklery is the way!

Jay, I did enjoy my visit there and I will be returning.  How else would I find out who is coming through the door???

Indeed.  I noticed the cars and trucks.  The use of light is masterful.  I "feel" like I'm there, waiting for a cup of coffee.

George: I hope to hear from my victim before I identify her. But by morning when I usually post, she will be identified.

Lenn: The lights are made using "Lens Flare" feature in Photo Shop. I said there was a draw to Danger Bay for me. I can hear the crunch of the gravel of the parking lot under my feet, the clunk of the boardwalk, and the sound and smell of the big lake as I am composing the stories.
