and another!

Wow - you snuck another one in while I was typing!

Why do I get the feeling Jeremy is going to find out about this before Wes wants him to?  Now I'm trying to think back to when Jeremy and Ellery questioned Sevigny ..... and I'm dreading the moment when Wes has to tell Ellery (and I'm sure Wes is, too!).   :-\  Never a dull moment in Greenlea County (or California either)!  Thanks, Louise!

yes I did sneak another one in there!  And yes, I am sure Wes is dreading ruining Ellery's vacation.  However, I promised myself, and you faithful audience, that this was going to NOT be a police procedural with coitus interruptus and all that it entails!  that our boys really ARE going to get a vacation they have been craving since the end of 'Long Way Home', without the interruptions of deathbed confessions, attempted murders and AIDS scares! So, Ellery and Colson have one coming to them.

Woo Wee - you've been typity typing, Louise!  :D

SPOILERS

I always love Colson's ruminations and it makes a lot of sense that their day at the public beach and their upcoming visit to yet another gay bar in the strange new, open world of California would harken back memories of Adam and his days and years spent in hiding.   Beautifully done.

Mansex? Uh, yeah, I'd say so.  Holy crap. 

How about we just crossed the Rubicon?” Colson asked, grinning happily.

LOL!  You can say that again, Colson.   I'm sure glad they ignored that blinking light on the phone ....

Thanks, Louise!!

I figured that follow-up would go over well with all of you skittish readers who are afraid that events in Tourmaline are about to intrude into the halcyon vacation time of Ellery and Colson!  AFter all, how many times did I ruin their time alone with one misfortune after another?

Well, I figure it's not you who has ruined their time alone with all those misfortunes.  More like fuckin Bill and crazy kidnappers and lunatic murderers and Wayne and his mice, etc., etc., etc. ......  ;D

Sorry I haven't put up any new chapters as yet, I spent some time this week going to Obama campaign events and today I had to work.  I am winding down now and digesting my dinner. I might have something up tonight but definitely tomorrow.
