but didn't ya think that Colson might have been rationalizing a bit on the "naked swimmin" in order to make it seem more legit to Wes?

Oh, for sure!  Ellery loves to get Wes's goat with that stuff, but Colson definitely likes to downplay it!  Gotta love these guys!  ;D

Ha! When I read this I was thinking 'Colson, this is I-didn't-need-to-know-that-Wes you're talking to! What are you doing talking about naked swimming??'  LOL

But still, I was amazed at how easy it rolled off his tongue. Good for you Colson!

Well done Ellery!  :)

and Louise too, of course.  :-*  :)

Hi everyone,


Due to some problems with an online stalker (no, not here on Bettermost) I have had to increase the security on my Livejournal for the time being.  If there is anyone that is not on my Friends list who can no longer see my Livejournal, please just PM me and request Friends list access.

Your reaction tells me otherwise. You find him charismatic, charming, and you have a noticeable amount of personal feeling toward him. Is there something more I should know?”

Yikes!  Dr. Caulfield is one smart cookie.  His meeting with Ellery is looking more interesting by the minute!  And I wonder what direction the conversation will take now that Henry has accepted Paula's offer of coffee....

Thanks, Louise!

“They seem like a lively crew, but as I expected, they view psychology as something less desirable than dentistry



Hmmm, I think Paula will share that opinion after this talk.

I'm a bit miffed at dr. Caulfield's easy assumption that Paula 'was predisposed towards him in some way'. Maybe the doctor needs some psychology too?


Thanks Louise!

Sorry for being slow about the next chapter... I got stricken with a respiratory virus and have been mostly blowing my nose and sucking on cough drops since Thursday!

That's exactly what I'm eating.  My entire diet has been onion soup and chicken and rice soup, with homemade gluten free bread dipped in it.  I am getting better but I still feel distinctly non-normal!  I may do some writing later if I can get up the strength!
