yes, a sort of a roll.  I am still ramping back up again.

I took a bit of a vacay, as they say, and read a whole lot of books, about, um, 20 of them, in the past month or so, maybe more... I am a voracious reader when I am in the mood or out of the writing mode, and I finished the last in the final series I had been reading, last night about 9 p.m.  And I've got nothing to read on the horizon.  However, I do have some ideas on how the plot is going to go with 'Lotus Eaters' and I think it is fair to warn you that 'No characters will be harmed in the course of this plot!'  None of the ones we love and cherish, that is.

heheheheh.

Woo hoo!  Went to bed too early again!

“You shut up, you are just jealous they complimented my cornbread so much!”

Louise, you have the sister bickering down pat!  And these two do have an uncanny knack for showing up at doorways at precisely the right wrong time!   :laugh:

The Jeremy-Nick banter is priceless.  "Mercurial" is the perfect word for Nick and I love that he's unapologetic for it and I love even more how Jeremy is so matter-of-fact and direct - he knows just how to handle his naughty boy, and I think he secretly likes that Nick keeps him on his toes, not to mention other positions ......  ;)

Thanks, Louise!

if you knew how many fights I had with my many sisters... you would not be surprised.  it consists mostly of "Shut up!" and "Would not!" "Would too!"

Okay, I started reading chapter 7 and I've gotten this far:


SPOILERS


“Well I guess we’ll see how it goes. Everythin okay with Colson?”

“You said you didn’t want ta know the details. He is a passionate an skillful lover an pleasured me with virtuoso skill.”

“I’m hangin up on you now.”

“Good, that means I can finish my spare ribs. Have a good night, Sheriff.”



What can I say?  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:


Okay, now on with the rest.  :)

Now if only Colson could find his vacation attitude! I have a feeling that another Wayne won't help much in that department.  :laugh:


I'm really enjoying this Louise. It's fun to read.

Chapter 10!

Don’t you gay homosexuals all go for that stuff?”

As opposed to the straight homosexuals, right?  LOL! 

“Only got em ta dance one time.”

What did I miss?  Did they dance sometime while I wasn't looking? 

But, oh my.  Colson is so tense and having a tipsy Ellery to deal with in public isn't helping to relax him any and now he's smoking again!  Good thing they had some getting fancy time earlier....

More great stuff, Louise - thanks!
