okey doke!

At last, a chapter 20!!!  I took a nap when I arrived in Rawlins, WY, and I still feel a bit rubbery, but I have logged 1000 miles in two days!  Holy cow!  And eaten more tacos than I want to count!

Holy cow is right!  Hope it was a good nap - and now I'm in the mood for mexican food!

So funny how Colson kept changing his mind about getting fancy - but the trip does seem to be doing him a lot of good despite all the interruptions and mishaps.  No matter where they go, the telephone does seem to be their bane.  I love how he told Ellery he wasn't ashamed and that he actually offered to go to the club!  Way to go, Colson!   :)

Thanks, Louise!

He is starting to feel that strange liberation that comes from being far away from the familiar and daring to do things he would never do otherwise.  A step at a time.  Which of course was what Ellery was hoping would happen!!!

Okay, no more excuses, people. I'm moved in, I got the internet on, I got groceries bought, and I don't have to report to work till Monday... so tomorrow I have time carved out for a chapter of this story and find out what happens at Capri!

Sevigny's father has a lot of money and that can be dangerous, since he won't mind wasting it just to cause trouble, and his lawyer won't mind dragging things out just to keep billing him.....

Funny that Edna's going to get a microwave out of this whole mess!  LOL!

"Yer turned on by that,” Ellery accused once more.

“No I ain’t.”


 :laugh:  Uh oh.  Well, that pesky 20% is bound to pop up every now and then, but looking on the bright side, I do recall that the last time it happened Colson was bound and determined to prove himself to Ellery, so .......

Thanks, Louise!

I think you read that exactly right, Marie!  Ellery really doesn't care for the lingering looks his man gives to the OTHER sex!

Right! Maybe Colson shouldn't get liquored up too fast right?  ;) I wonder what Colson is going to tell Wes and Edna about this trip. Not too much I think, poor Edna might have another 'vaseline' moment.


And a thin waiter in an apron with a pout....for a second there, I thought his name was going to be Gene!  ;D

Thanks Louise. Can't wait to find out what song Colson and Ellery are going to dance to. Whenever they finally make it to the dance floor.

 :laugh: :laugh:  Good one, Fabienne!  Yeah, I think it's probably best if the boys don't give too many details about their trip!

there have to be a few stereotypical gay men in there somewhere!

I'll try to get back on track once the election is over - I am a LEETLE BIT DISTRACTED right now!

Yes, gang, I am getting back to thinking about our boys at the gay bar... now that the election is over!  I went to a big election night party and getting used to my new job, but things are now evening out and I have mental space to start writing again!
