No way out but through, right?

I thought it was sad that Ellery thinks that Colson is still ashamed of who he is. I think at this point, it's more fear. And Colson has been right to be fearful.

I was thinking driving home from work that, although there have been attacks against Colson and Ellery, Colson has been in a supportive environment on a daily basis since moving to Tourmaline. Ellery's colleagues, Wes and Edna, the customers at the Red Stallion, they accepts him for who he is. I wonder how many other people in Tourmaline know about them? I suppose a lot of people do.
And now, with the girls settling in Tourmaline, making friends or even, in the long term, starting a family there, more people will know about their father. It's inevitable. Maybe Colson hasn't given this any thought, but he will have to find a way to get used to this.

I hope they get through the whole Pam ordeal ok.


Thanks Louise!  :)

okey doke... sorry I have been somewhat preoccupied the last couple of days, but I pulled my mind together for an extra-length chapter of Ellery goodness!

Well, there's not many things better than extra-length Ellery goodness!   ;D

SPOILERS







I agree with Ellery that I don't believe Pam is telling a lie about the rape.  But I also agree with Paula - it is odd that Pam didn't mention the fact that she had dated Teddy Eldredge, even if it was just a "passing fancy."  And, more importantly, a defense attorney is going to pounce on that fact and try to run with it.  Poor Pam.  I fear she's going to find out why many sexual assault victims choose to remain silent.   >:(   

Well then I guess my next call is the hard one, to go over all of this with Pam.”

Yes, Paula has her work cut out for her - a delicate situation that has to be handled frankly. 

Add Paula to the growing list of people who now know Laura's "secret" about her  pregnancy.  Ol' Ben Franklin sure knew what he was talking about when he said "three can keep a secret if two are dead." 

Really great stuff, Louise.  Thanks!

What's this about Ellery's extra length??? (Oh goodness-yes of course what was I thinking?)  ::)


Okay call me suspicious but did that discussion really need to be had over breakfast at the diner? Methinks ADA

Samuelson may be subconsciously using her position as Pam's attorney to get in a little social time with the

unavailable yet hunky Chief Deputy. You know, like when you're in high school and you join a club just so you can

spend time with someone you're crushing on even though you have zero chance of catching the person's eye.

I'm not blaming her for it, I'd probably do the same thing.  ;)

I can see her trying to make this a weekly thing. And I love Ellery sweet talking the waitress while Paula must have

been sitting there thinking "What the hell.....?"

Terrific as always Louise!!
You're the love of my life
And the breath in my prayers
Take my hand, lead me there

I can't forget the taste of your mouth
From your lips the heavens pour out
I can't forget when we are one
With you alone I am free

Chapter 37 for the changeup!

The changeup and some curveballs, too!  I did have the feeling the plea agreement was going to be in trouble, but Amos's new attorney was a surprise.  That's all Colson and Ellery need on top of everything else - a Beagle reminder.  And who are these other new clients in Greenlea County that Eagleton and Spry have taken on?  That can't be good.

Wes, as usual, gave Ellery good advice about the restraining order.  That idea was making me uncomfortable and I don't think it would have been helpful at all in the long run.  The phone number, however, does need to be changed "toot sweet" as Wes would say. 

...an then when she never did get pregnant I began ta worry somethin worse was wrong with her.”

Ellery's not the only one who wants to hear more about this!  Not a good day for Ellery's blood pressure, but he did keep his cool in the meeting, so he is learning. 

Now what?

Thanks,
Marie

Paula handled that well.   I do hope Pam remembers to keep all her answers short and specific.  Laura didn't even want her 20 year old daughter to talk to boys?  Oh, my. 

Poor thing.  On top of everything else, she's still counting days and worrying about a pregnancy.   And speaking of pregnancies, I wonder if the next time Laura calls the Cantrell/Grey household she'll get a recording telling her that number is no longer in service!  That should bring about some interesting reactions.....

Great job, Louise.  Thanks!

sorry for the irregular postings, folkses... I had some personal business to attend to and I'm still a little too fascinated with political blogging, but I promise I will be resuming work on this story as soon as possible!
