The boys are still trying to reach the Ranch but things go haywire when Morgan has a nightmare…

‘Morgan! Morgan! Are you alright?

‘Wha…? Bloody hell, that was weird.’

‘You were screaming something.’

‘I think it was eating those cheese straws last thing. We had a huge fight.’

‘What about?’

‘What we should wear when we get to the Ranch.’

‘Seriously?’

‘Oh yes. I said jeans. You said a pin-striped suit and spats.’

‘Jeans?’

‘We fought. You died.’

‘Blimey.’

‘I was found guilty of murder, you of a crime of fashion.’

‘What was the sentence?.’

‘Since you’d got death, I got life.’

‘They threw away the key?’

‘They said I’d suffered enough and let me go.’

    Ha, ha! Just a nightmare, not a premonition. Tell the boys to slow down on the cheese curds before bed. And you know, my Great Uncle Fred was a dapper cowboy — he had flower tooled cowboy boots with a high heel and a turquoise western pantsuit. Aunt Myrtle slicked his hair and trimmed his nails. He was fussy, but could ride a horse in style!
