SPOILERS





Okay, first :

“If that is Wayne on the front porch with a mouse in a box I swear I’ll make em eat it,” Ellery said, tugging his arm back from under Colson’s shoulder.

 :laugh:  Not only can I picture that perfectly, I can't dismiss the idea that it may still happen!

How I wish Paula had gotten a hold of Ellery before the girls barged in and scared Colson to death with their (well-intentioned, I know!) jumbled version of events.   But I am relieved that Ellery is aware so that he can start the ball rolling on teaching Blue and Langtree a few things.....

And speaking of Blue and Langtree...I guess I'm seeing an additional angle to this entire sorry mess.  There are now two more men who have used Laura and made a fool of her for their own purposes. They may be the first ones who have done it with malice - but the effect is the same.

I think this may be the most complex of the tales (that's a good thing!) and that's saying something. 

Thanks,
Marie

well if I have a chapter on Wayne eating a mouse I think that will be the end of my reputation, Marie!!

and it didn't start off complex, it just sorta... ended up that way!

and a Memorial Day chapter!

Chapter 50:  http://louisev.livejournal.com/270333.html

Okay....I've just read the first paragraphs of this chapter and LOUISE!!! You should definitely think about putting in an 'do not start to read this while you've having a drink in front of your computer, you might end up spitting all over the screen because you're laughing so loud' alert.


I mean, really, OMG, I can just picture this...'Daddy!!' Daddy???  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:

*off to read the rest, now that I've calmed down a bit*

 :)

Gosh, I guess this is what they call 'the sh%t hitting the fan'  :-\

As usual, Ellery's right about giving Paula a call immediately. And Colson needs to calm down.

Workin in a coal mine!

I haven't forgotten our Tourmaline denizens... but I have been working extra hours on some things for my job and I just finished a 12 hour stint, part of it from home now that they have provided me with remote access and a laptop.  The fun never ends!

Fortunately despite a major emergency, we solved the crisis and ended Friday back on track without jeopardizing the schedule for our system going live... and maybe tomorrow I'll have enough brain power to write again!!

...Goin' down down down.... 

Now I'll have that song stuck in my head all day!  LOL!

I hope you had a restful night after such stressful day(s).  Take care of yourself, Louise - we'll be here (and I have faith in your considerable brain power).  :)

hahahah, I spent the day doing something very peculiar, watching live streaming CSPAN video of the Democratic Party Rules and Bylaws Committee argue over the primary results for Florida and Michigan.

It was... um... relaxing!
