Yes, I did start a new story.

Completely unpredictably.

I hope you enjoy the newness!

 :D  I knew I went to bed too early last night!  But what a great surprise to find this morning and, yes, I enjoyed the "newness" very much!  Colson in California .... the mind boggles - but in a good way! LOL!  And I like the idea of a trial run and I especially like the idea that Colson and Ellery are alone on this trip (I love Wes and Edna, but .... honeymoons are for two, you know?) 

“Streakin? What’s that?”

“Runnin around bare-ass.”

Colson snorted. “No chance a that. An you better not a brought them obscene cut off shorts a yours neither.”


LOL!  Of course he did Colson.  You may be headed for California, but you'll get to see all the way to France!  ;D

Terrific start, as always, Louise!  You never lose your touch.  Thanks!

I'm wide awake, Louise!   :D

Colson's feeling of triumph after his first plane ride is adorable!   And now they're going to hit the San Diego gay bars?  This I have to see!  It's certainly been a year of "firsts" for him, hasn't it?  LOL!

And you know I'm thrilled that we'll be seeing Jeremy and Nick! The twins teaching him to ride is something else I can't way to see!  Oh, the possibilities..  Of course, he'll be very sore after his first lesson and Jeremy, being the Sweet Thing he is, will need to give him a good rub down ........  ;D

Thanks, Louise!

you don't think I'd start a new story and not have our favorite people in it, did you?

And I decided that I have had enough of a rest from getting fancy that we might just find some fanciness in this story, and a few pratfalls and other assorted amusements as well.  I also need a break from heavy crime plots!

Great start Louise. Just what I needed while I am on vacation!

One small edit: in chapter 1, it should be Brown Horse Farm not Wes Horse Farm.

got it.

I am a bit preoccupied right now trying to vacate my home and camping out at my office, but I'll be back on track as soon as my temper simmers.  I wrote it up in my blog.  Sorry for the distraction, folks!  Life is like that!

okay I am back in my room, working on a new chapter.  I'm still pretty disgruntled but managing to concentrate once more.  The new chapter should be up soon.
