Bail Money . . .
I went to dinner at a fancy, expensive restaurant yesterday and after a sumptuous meal at an upscale place in Cleveland, we hit the trendy boutique coffee shop nearby and the fellow I was with purchased us each a cup of coffee made by a barista on some special machine that prepares coffee in a vacuum of some kind that gives it some special esoteric quality. He didn't pull out his wallet to pay for our coffee but instead hovered his cell phone next to a black box on the counter and his purchase was complete – no cash changed hands. I know that this fellow is relatively wealthy, but I don't think that this young fellow had more than twenty dollars or so in his wallet . . . . In his world money changes hands electronically . . . . In my world I am still accustomed to carrying 'bail money' with me most of the time. I use the term 'bail money' to indicate that I always like to carry some hard currency in my wallet – I joke that if I am ever arrested I want to have enough money to bail myself out of jail. I have no fear of the new technologies for moving money instantly from my bank account to a merchant or restaurant, but I still enjoy the mental comfort of knowing that if the technology should fail I can still pull good old green-backs out of my wallet and pay the bill. In this cowboy adventure, rancher Milford has borrowed some cash from the town hotel owner, and the money is due to be paid back, but rancher Milford has not been able to sell his horses and get the money he needs to pay back the loan . . . . . And he had no backup cash to keep him out of trouble when the horse buyers failed to show up and buy for his horses. The bad guy in this story wants to take his ranch and has killed all the horse buyers who were headed to the Milford ranch. If only Milford had kept a stash of 'bail money' somewhere he might not be faced with losing his entire ranch and stock of horses over a piddly little loan . . . . Now as he faces losing it all, horse buyer Carson has come to town and could save Milford if he can get to the ranch and buy his horses before morning . . . . But the bad guy sends his henchmen after the horse buyer to kill him before he can reach the Milford ranch . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
