RB113 Charlie's Nightmare

Our Ranger Bill

for the weekend of Sept 12, 2020 is
Charlie's Nightmare

An out-of-control missile is flying over Knotty Pine. It could fall from the sky at any time and explode! Bill could choose to have the missile shot down, but that would destroy millions of dollars of damage to the national forest.

RB112 The Mad Bats

 Bats invade the attic of the Phipps' home, and one even bites Edna Phipps. Bill and Stumpy go to evict the bats and discover the bats are sick with rabies! The boys get help fighting off the bats from some feathered friends. One of the Phipps' neighbors causes Bill even more trouble than those pesky bats.

RB107 Petticoat Rangers

 Bill doesn't have enough men for all the work around the national forest. He and his rangers have to work 18 hours a day. Bill has a solution to the problem - women volunteers in the fire towers. The rangers refuse to allow women rangers. Will the rangers work themselves to death or will they give Bill's PETTICOAT RANGERS a chance? Can female rangers do a ranger's work if they get that chance? In my opinion, this is one of the funniest Ranger Bill stories ever! You get to hear some of Stumpy's funniest and most famous lines! And you get to see a little of what life was like back in the 1950's.
