    "Thats an odd fellow..."Jack said before locking the door for the evening, and retiring up stairs to read the latest book about Pecos Bill.

    Jack consulted his notes "New Mexico?? Lets see... Northern New Mexico shows up on Wednesday, and southern on Tuesdays, and then there is the western and eastern showing up... later today. Its the same as the southern California coach. As long as they're sending on public coach. Now if they've privately contracted, there is no schedule for those. Does that help?? Mr.... uh... " Jack eyed him happily.

    Jack comes in from the back of the buiding at the sound of the door. He smiles greatly. A new customer!!! "Hello, Sir!!" He sticks out his hand "I am Jack." After shaking hands, he settles to the counter and checks his schedules "Well... I have Coaches coming in Daily. From where would it be coming? That will tell me when it will be coming in. Then I would store it in the back here (under lock and key) until you can retrieve it. Easy peasy!!!"

    Jack came in from the back "Mrs Mayor..... umm.... errrrm... You're not Mrs Mayor??? " Jack grinned sheepishly. This was a new person. He stuck his hand out in greeting to the newcomer. "I am Jack Lincoln." He grinned at the man. "What can I do to help you on this fine day?? Sir??"

    Jack looked at the map and the journal. "Hmmm...I remember reading a theory by an associate of Maunsel White, of Louisiana. Maunsel wanted to increase the amount of yield in his sugar cane field. He employed a geologist to study the soil. This geologist, who was not named, mentioned to him that Quartz crystals, when found in a vein, generally goes hand in hand with Gold veins. In MR Maunsel's case, it did not. However, I fear the thought, whether sound or not, is believed by more than just that geologist." Jack spent some time reading over the rest of the map and book. He would do more research on individual pieces later. "Thats all I can say at this moment, I may have more later. MR Deputy, sir" Jack was lost in the puzzle before him immediatly.

    Jack came to look at the riddle. It was very intriguing. "These symbols are indian" he commented. "I am immediately uncertain what it means." Jack thought about it for a moment (96) He pointed at the symbols in order "Happiness, crossroads, Summer, Thunderbird, and Hand" he said. "When the Happiness reaches the crossroads, and the very sand becomes fire summer upon oneself from happiness of the shaman or protection??" he intoned, substituting the known meanings. I don't know what its supposed to mean. Though I do feel that once you find where the crossroads are, at the right time, you'll understand. Sir." The riddle was very interesting. "Is there more that I have not seen? Sir??"

    Jack looked up from what he was doing "Mr Deputy!! " he said jovially. "What brings you here?? And yes, of course, I would be happy to help, sir." Jack came around the counter to see what he needed to help with.

    "Not at all." Jack said "They've been very well behaved. The sheep are more of an issue. But nothing that cannot be handled. It is all part of what needs to be done." Jack waved a dismissal hand. He led her across the street to a make shift stockyard. The dogs were tethered with a long lead to one end of the yard, to a shed with the door open. The sheep were roaming free in the yard.

    Jack smiled. He did not necessarily enjoy hangling livestock. "Ah, they are across the street at my new livestock yard. I will take you there." He grabbed his White Plainsman hat and opened the door. "Mrs Mayor, after you." He kept hold of his coffee. "Those wolfhounds are beautiful."

    Jack was sitting behind the counter eating his breakfast of Eggs and Sausage. At her entry, he stands up. He was dressed in his "Sunday Finest". Blue Button Up shirt, Clean Slacks, and shiny boots. He had decided against the Spurs and Pistols, as they were distracting during morning church. "Mrs Mayor!!!" Jack said, as he came around the counter "So good to see you, Ma'am. Have you come for your shipment?"

    Jack tries to look wounded "Mr Whelan, I could never be so insulting!!!" He laughs and begins to walk away. "Mr Whelan, I will see you, or your emissary when you are ready. Thank you. I look forward to completing our business together." With that, he walked out of the building. Outside, Jack stood on the porch, looked up the street, squinted, then looked down the street. Then he drooped in defeat. He had went in for a whole other purpose, then had gotten distracted by scones. Jack decided that he would look very badly for a business owner to turn around and go back in after his very businesslike exit. He would have to return later. Perhaps tomorrow, if it is not raining, then he could wear his new boots and spurs. Yes, tomorrow would do just fine. Jack decided to go to the hotel dining room for a while to eat. He had a sandwich at his office, but a nice warm meal that he did not cook himself would be nice. He wandered placidly toward the hotel, whistling random notes for a few moments, then, without thinking, his whistling modulated into the tune he had hear Mr Seeing Sun play in the cave. Jack achieved the hotel in high spirits. He sat at a table, and waited for service. When it came, he ordered a meal of whatever meat was on the menu today.

    Jack smiled at the request "Ma'am, I will not disrespect you. Ms Caitlyn it will be." Jack shook her hand once more. "Please keep me apprised of the bakery's progress. If there is anything I can do to assist, please let me know." He let her hand go, and flashed a smile "Good Day Ma'am" He turned to leave. Jack then walked up to Torrin and his guest. He stuck his hand out to shake the hand of Mr O'Rourke "Good afternoon, I am Jack Lincoln." He turned to Torrin "Mr Whelan, please keep me apprised as to the estimated start date. When you have time, I have already drawn up plans for the modifications. An Estimation of materials needed would also be handy. Is there anything else you would require of me?" He smiled as he shifted his gaze from one man to the other, then back again.

    Jacks Eyes wide "Lemon!!!" he said emphatically. "I love Lemon!!!" He then remembered that he was talking to a lady. "Ma'am, I would love it if you would make Lemon Scones, Ma'am"

    Jack gazed at Caitlyn expectantly. "Miss Caitlyn??? Scones??? Please???" He smiled in the manner of a hopeful child.

    *blink*.... *blink blink* "Bakery???" Jack slowly smiled. "Who's bakery?? Who's Caity?? Will she be making pies??? Croissants?? Scones??? I've not had a good scone since I left Baltimore. Crumpets??? oh my... an actual bakery... Cheese Danish?? Where is it going to be?? Who's Caity again??? How long until its built?? What is the projected opening date?" Jack began thinking of all the confections that he has not had since coming out to the frontier. A proper bakery!!!!
