Looks like good news on the Amos front - I think he's finally running out of delaying tactics.  It made me laugh how they're passing that 'hot potato' of a phone call to Ellery onto Wesley!  He's one of the few people not intimidated by Colson LOL!

Jeremy is a sweetheart and he's good at handling awkward situations.  But poor Paula - she needs a social life, Louise!

Thanks!

well you know how hard I resist happy endings for everybody, Marie!!!

there's no plot if everyone has a happy ending.  Besides... I got plans.

.....Besides... I got plans.

Now, that makes me a happy camper!


SPOILERS






Colson reading Agatha Christie always reminds me of the early days in their relationship  :)   But Colson really needs to calm down about Paula!  I know he's a jealous guy but I can't help but believe this jealousy thing is just being exacerbated by all the other crap that's flying around him. 

“Cause...” Jeremy paused, and Ellery heard a brief intake of breath before Jeremy spoke again. “Cause he’s right.”

Sigh.  I'm not so sure honesty was the best policy here.  I mean, what the heck is Ellery supposed to do with that information?  And things were going so much better between Paula and him......

Thanks, Louise - even though they're cranky right now, I always love seeing our boys together!

I can't believe this is already Chapter 69, Louise - I'm always a little sad to see one of the tales come to an end, but you did say you had plans, and I always like your plans ...... :)

“I guess that’s a bit too much, huh...” he trailed off.

Um, yeah, Colson.  Just a bit.   ::)   Good Lord, what would he do if Ellery didn't get nauseous thinking of women?

...Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful..”

That's a shampoo commercial from the 80's!  LOL!  I love it.  And, actually, Ellery is a lot more beautiful than the actress that did the commercials.  Glad they came to an understanding (for the time being).  I do love when Colson tucks a lock of hair behind Ellery's ear.  Sigh. 

Thanks, Louise!

Marie!

Hey, that's fine, Louise!  "Stewing" makes things tastier!   ;)

Great to see Colson and Ellery in (relative) peace!  :)  And, although it was under the worst of circumstances, it appears to be a very good thing indeed for the girls to move to Tourmaline and get a chance to spread their wings. I can't help but feel for Laura, though, up in Prescott with a husband who so clearly doesn't want her or his own child she's carrying... will we get to hear more about how she's doing? 

“Wasn’t so what? Ah ha! Now we get down to it. It ain’t me that finds Samuelson sexy, it’s you! Good thing she don’t wear no black leather cat suit huh?”

LOL!  The truth comes out!  Hmmm, let's see...



Tall - check
Slender - check
Long dark hair - check

Looks like Ellery has it all (and a lot more!!!) covered  - he doesn't have anything to worry about!  :laugh:  And, it was great to see Wayne again, too!  Thanks for another great story, Louise.  Now that the girls are living near Jeremy and Nick, I hope we get to see a lot more of them................. *blatantly obvious hint*  ;D
