        Patience, lw...sooner or later, we will smoke the pipe of peace together...
        The plot is evolving, gently, as it should...
        I mentioned the Chickasaw River....it was a "false pickup" from Wiki....the Chickasaw River raids, as I'm sure you know, were launched by the Chickasaw warriors, and involved the Mississippi River, so it came up as Chickasaw River, which doesn't exist.....thanks for the correction...
        The Oklahoma is the South Canadian river? Good name...
        As I understand the current predicament of Dorothy and Captain Webb, they are trudging overland, and have left their vessels behind.....I am still not sure if they are on a yellow brick road or not, but Captain Webb is determined to find the Wizard of Oil, and Dorothy thinks she can help.....I have a feeling there are several twists and turns upcoming....

              After be-heading the teacher of english, to the delight of millions of illeterate scum everywhere, Dorthy and Captain Webb left Lonewolf's mansion and set out on foot, towards a little place called Eugene. They arrived in the pitch of night. They were attracted to a small campfire by the river. A man was speaking to a large group of attentive listeners. As he banged on a drum he talked funny. They called his name, over and over. He is known as...

                More likely a red brick road. There are still a few rural brick highways in Kansas, 100+ years old, remarkably smooth and still serviceable. Just as I hope to be when I hit 100.

                  Well it's not the X man, so it's gotta be Gabe.

                    I haven't figured out where my mansion is presumed to be yet but that was one hell of a trek, over 2000 miles. This Webb fellow could turn out to be a promising distance runner/walker, not to mention Dorothy in her high-heeled moccasins.. and , even if they do find gas, they ain't never gonna get that schooner over the Rocky Mountains... would have better luck going back to the Mississippi and around the Horn..
                    They were lucky to find Eugene in the dead of night.. the bus driver from Portland airport had trouble finding it last year.

                      You are in such a hurry to reach the climax.....please slow down....
                      And no, we have never met...

                        From the comment pages of today's Times:

                        Leave the wolf alone

                        It's a shame that the US media and the FBI have decided to continue using the term Lone Wolf - first used by white supremacists to glamorise themselves.

                        To me it sounds like the title of a 1970s TV series about some hairy-chested vigilante hero. Can't someone come up with a non-flattering animal-based metaphor to describe these people?

                        Something a bit less Lone Wolf, and a bit more Demented Chicken.

                          I am the Gabemister, he said to his flock of dreamy eyed followers . Suddenly a spark from the campfire burst towards Gabe and turned his dreadlocks into a cauldren from hell. Gabe calmly said, I am on fire people.

                          Everyone got up and left the bongo playing prophet as they now saw that he was only human.

                          It was at that very moment........

                            . . . that Lonewolf pissed on the Gabemeister, as he had always wanted to do. But now it was a friendly act, as it extinguished the fire.

                              Gabe was grateful but confused, "Mr. Wolf, people always told me you wouldn't piss on me if i was on fire. They were wrong?"

                              "Yes they were, my soggy chum.Now are you ready to hear the real reason i have come?" asked Lonewolf.

                              "Are you saying it wasn't to piss on my head?" ask Gabe.

                              "No, i rather enjoyed that but that is not our quest. I need your help in finding a kindred spirit. He is a man much like you in some ways. The two of you have exactly what track needs, personality. The man we seek used to compete in speedo's while smoking a cigarette. Will you join me, young Gabe?"

                                Whoa. I thought it was Webb and Dorothy who trekked to Eugene and left me in the counting house.
