Sure maybe it is painfull for Laura, but think how much more painful it is for poor Pam, she was the one who was raped. I think Laura is a selfcentred hateful bitter twisted old cow. She thinks about no one but herself. Her daughter has gone through one of the worst things a woman can possible go through and she needs her mothers love and support. Laura is going to end up a very lonely old woman, because she,ll drive everyone away from her at this rate. She,ll have no one to blame but herself for that. I'm having a bad week and I,m right out of sympathy, can you tell?  :laugh:

souxi, I'm not trying to defend Laura and I'm certainly not trying to deny poor Pam's anguish - I was just giving my thoughts on your question about "why" Laura can't accept the fact that Pam was raped.  It's totally frustrating to try and apply logic to irrational behavior.  And I completely agree that if she continues in this manner she will end up alone.

....I’ve taken a belt ta my boy.”

Hmm...ya know, Esteban, I think you're making Joe's case for him.  Larry, Jr. isn't exactly an advertisement for the success of corporal punishment. 

I'm glad to see that Paula seems to be hitting her stride as a.d.a.  And it's really nice to see her and Ellery working together so well, but the cirumstances are so sad.  I agree that Pam shouldn't be burdened with the details of Laura's note, but I think Paula did the right in obtaining the restraining order.  After the phone call from Teddy, the note, and Laura's behavior with Paula, I don't see how Wes could make an argument against one, but I am concerned about Laura's reaction when she's served.  I'm very interested in finding out what Detective Blue is up to, also - and if the prosecutor is aware of it. 

Thanks, Louise!

thank you all once again for all of your comments, particularly Marie who is here all the time, I thrive on comments!

In case you don't follow my blog, I am doing my last minute moving, cleaning, and errand things, and today is Jiffy Lube day for the car, so I just don't have a lot of time available right now to write. I  am hoping I have enough mental time to get some writing in while I am on my 4 day trip but I"m not promising anything there, either!!  Please be patient while I get relocated to my next destination, thanks!

okey doke, chapter 44!

This might be the last chapter I can get done before leaving town so it's extra large!

What a nice surprise this morning - you're too good to us, Louise!

Can't say it enough - thank God for Wes!  I'm relieved he served Laura personally.   You could hear the years of experience in every measured, wise word he spoke.  I thought it was so telling that Laura basically ignored everything Wes said about the rape and Pam trying to seek justice and focused once again on the fact that Pam is moving away from her and taking up with her "pervert Daddy."  And I see that she now includes Katie Ann as part of the conspiracy.  When (if) the truth finally hits her about Pam's assault, I'm afraid it's going to hit very, very hard.  I'm more than curious about what's been going on in Prescott with the detectives and prosecutor.  And Laura said there would be no threats in her letter to Pam, but will it be loaded with guilt trips?

That was excellent!

Thanks,
Marie

Well gang, here it is, my last day at my job in California, and I am going to be packing up and getting ready to go when I arrive home.  My cable modem is packed in a box ready to go back to Comcast and I have to go pick up a prescription as I head out of town, so I won't be writing anymore before I go.

I hope things have got to a comfortable "pause" in the story so you can wait a few days, because I have to go off and drive all day for the next four days!

thanks for your patience and as always, for the wonderful comments!

Have a safe trip Louise! 4 days huhn? You're certainly not travelling round the coffeepot looking for the handle are you?  :)

I think I'll do some rereading...

no I sure am not!  I get around, Fabienne!  And I will be posting some photos of various places on my blog.
I wrote my itinerary up  there - from northern California, through northern Utah, across southern Wyoming, Nebraska southwest to northeast, Iowa right across the middle, and across the top of Illinois.

At the height of spring!
