Enterin' this thread on the eastbound Union Pacific, Delmonico wonders if anyone will be in Kearney ta meet him.  No matter it is gettin' late, so he uses his feather piller from the Fort Sill thread and a blacket from his soogun and curls up on the train seat ta sleep till the train gets ta Kearney.

When the train arrives in Kearney, Delmonico gathers his mule and gear and heads ta the livery stable.  With his mule and gear safe for the night, he heads to a hotel along main street ta put himself up fer the night.  As he gets ready ta go ta bed he makes plans for this next adventure.   Roll Eyes

He also laughs when he thinks about the scare the Indians are gonna give Slim on his return trip from his weekend visit to see his wife and 16 kids. Grin Grin

Just past suppertime Trinity rides into camp but finds no one there.  Most distressing is the fact that Trinity could find NO FOOD!  Surely Delmonico would have made some food for the gang, knowing that after such a long and arduous trip food would be all that they would be wanting. 

"Ah'm going to stoke  up the fahr and lay down a bit in hopes that Delmonico will arrive back soon.  I know He'll come back cuz his dutch ovens are here in his wagon!"  Ifn he aint back soon, Ah'll have to go lookin fer him.  Ah'll just wait here an stay awake..."  As soon as Trinity finished talking to himself he fell asleep.

Delmonico and Trinity settle down ta eat the all ya can eat for one price meal and discuss business.

Delmonico says ta Trinity, "I've been do'in some inquiring around here, there be some great land a little North-West a here fere a ranch, Slim al' show up in this thread tommorow and I got the land all scouted out, was up here a couple of years ago." 

"There is a river with a really cool name up there we'll settle on, but a'll wait till Slim gets here ta tell ya the name.  Besides that it'l be closer ta Wissyconsion so he won't have ta travel so fur ta see his wife and 17 kids on the weekends.  Besides that there ain't no Commaches up here ta scare him and hang him upside down."

"I'll pay the bill on the way out, but don't spect no fortune cookie.  These Chinese all ya can eat places be period correct or we would not be here, but ya gots to wait bout 50 years fer some guy out ta Calyforia ta invents them."

Delmonico walks up ta Trinity.  Lookin' him over he gets the idea that Trinity just ate too much and is plugged up.  "Come with me I can help."  He then takes Trinity ta the blacksmith shop where he gets the big smith ta hold Trinity, grabbin' a funnel Delmonico pours a dose of castor oil down Trinity.  "Sorry pard it was fer yer own good," he says as Trinity heads for that little building behind the blacksmith shop.

That's why Gopher Grease and I ride mules, they gots more stammminnnan or somethin' like that.

Get down ta the courthouse and registar that brandin' irun Slim, that way it'll be legal and I won't have ta shoot the rope off yer neck from a half mile away like's I had ta do last time. Shocked 

When ya get it registared we got's to get up ta the Dismal River and set up a rance.  I got's 2000 longhorns comin' in next week ta stock it.  I tolt them ta wait till next week cause you'd have ta go home this weekend and visit yer wife and 17 children. Grin

Oh by the way if'n ya google things up Slim, ya gonna find there be a Dismal River in Newbrasskey. Wink

Ya didn't look at all the old posts, bout 20 miles upstream from the forks of it and the North Loup.  And it only runs through 1 county, ya googled up modern maps.  It is all Chyeenneee County up thar.  And ya gonna have to come ta Kearney or North Platte fer supplies.  See town won't be fur. Grin

And what be the brand ya registared, I know it be in the Nuther Story thread but puts it here so we don't have ta keep goin' back and Firth.  (yes Slim there be a Firth Newbrasskey) Grin Grin
