    • "We'll have to get on over to the dinning room them. Afraid it's liable to be a bit more like Kalispell than Frisco." He said. "But it'll be good food, just not what we've been used too. Will be up on the hill, for sure.  I was told this is the best hotel because it was a ways out across the river from town, and it was solid built."   "The wealth on the hill is such that all most everything around it is growing at a fast pace. You'll really see that when we visit the Capitol, Carson City. Supposedly discovered by Kit Carson and General John Freemont on their way to Sacramento in. At least Freemont named the river after him back in '43 or '44. Nothin' was there then."   "All that made me hungry too, let's go eat an then take us a walk across the river, or along it, which ever you want." @Bongo
    • That did not take long. Cookie rang the triangle and shouted his best but in the end he sent the kid to roust all but the closest to him. Rance joined young Wheeler in the line, a bit out of the wind, but mostly in it for the moment. It seemed calmer up by the wagon.   "That had ta be bad back there. The wind drivin' the dust an' the smell, but should this wind let up you'll be on flank, left flank, then right, then back to the drag. It'll be me, Dallas, an' Dixie. eatin' dust tomorrow. But at least we got hot grub, won't always be that'a way out here though, every trip is different."   And they moved up steadily. @Bongo
    • "Nothing to discuss? I am surprised, Jonah. Why, if we have time for breakfast, there will be much to discuss regarding the hospital as well as the start of the orphanage. Hopefully that the railroad will be completed, or close to it by then." She smiled brightly. "Things will be different by then."   "My hope is that we get through all of this without my fathers interference causing delays, or real problems with the builders. You know we could get well into October before the snow flies, but I'm not counting on that. The winter will stop construction until the thaw." She stated, but the smile was still there, "But it will be well underway!" @Bongo
    • "Pleased ta meet ya, Rance."  Justus gave the man a nod, then lined up with the others for grub.  Maybe he could get some sleep despite the wind.  He surely was tired enough, and until there was something that concerned him, he didn't need to be concerned.   First, though, a full belly!  As the line progressed, he he nodded to the kid who was the cook's help.  "Times like this, I bet yer glad ya don't have ta be on th' downwind end of a herd'a cows!"   @Flip
    • "It's good to know you'll have the best working on the project, you've come this far, you don't need to risk the quality with less than the best working on it."  Even though he had no doubt that the crew would be excellent, it was reassuring to know that the man hand picked for the job would actually be on site overseeing it.  That way, too, he'd be there if Leah needed to discuss anything with him, and Jonah had a good feeling that was going to happen!   He grinned and took a sip of coffee.  "Just think, this time next year it will all be over!  We'll have a fine hospital with the best equipment...and nothing to discuss over breakfast!"   @Flip  

Wentworth Brothers

Synopsis

Matt Wentworth's brothers turn up in Kalispell

 

Starts of with the youngest Charles, dropping out of college and heading up to meet with Sam who is working on a ranch.  Knowing that their father won't be happy with another son not finishing college, Sam and Charles head out further west to where Mike has been working for a few years.  All three decide that the further west they go the better and since Mike knows that Matt is in Kalispell, they all decide to head there.

 

This, of course, will make Matt's life a little bit more difficult since none of his brothers know about his Secret Service activities.  It will also add a few more characters to make life a bit more interesting in Kalispell.

Thinking about some ideas for the Wentworth family as a whole...

 

  • Charles Wentworth (the dad) is a political mover and shaker in Washington.  He's does what's needed to get ahead and be an influencer, including doing "favours" for friends and those who want some sort of access to the government.  One of these could be Elias Steelgrave (maybe he's Steelgrave's man in Washington).  Matt would know about some of his father's dealings but wouldn't know about the connection to Steelgrave.  When he finds out he won't be surprised but it would make his job a little bit more difficult.
  • Charlie's relationship with Clara would be one of a teasing/mocking sort.  I figure Charlie's job at the ranch would initially be one of working in the barn and around the house.  He would also be going into town for supplies or just driving the buckboard taking people into town e.g. Clara for whatever reason (maybe Shade will see this as an opportunity to ride into town so that he can court the school teacher i.e. he won't have to keep an eye on Clara when she is shopping).  Charlie picks up on the fact that Clara has a crush on Shade and thinks it's funny for various reasons.  He can bring up things like how Shade is too old for her or if she lived back east she wouldn't be making her debut in society until she was about 17 (which in his mind and experience would still make her kid no matter how old she acted).

All this is tentative depending on the owners of the characters involved.  This is just a little brainstorming and there may be more in the future ;)

From my POV, looks great.

 

I figured Shade would interview Wentworths for ranch foreman and ranch jobs right after the bear hunt while he's healing up. Quentin and Harriet will be gone on their first-ever cattle drive. Fortunately, it's just a contract fulfillment to a fort.
