Chapter 34:

Aw, Ellery is so loved and treasured by his husband, family and friends. 

I imagine "Emilio" is not that unusual of a name in their parts?  I understand Wes's excitement at Ellery's utterance, but I hope he isn't jumping the gun and sending the department off on a wild goose chase.  But then again, there has to be some reason that name is so important to Ellery - but what reason?  I love how you keep them - and us - guessing! Fantastic story, Louise!

well of COURSE he's sending them on a wild goose chase!  Every great leader has to make a bonehead move when he's not thinking straight, right?

 :laugh:   :laugh: Yeah, it looked like that, but I was trying to be gentle on Wes, being he's so wrapped up with Ellery and all.  But, as you point out - he's not thinking straight, so we'll give him a pass on this bonehead move - but I'm not so sure the Fearless Leader will give himself a pass!

Heheheh but on the other hand, if your chief deputy wakes up and seems to answer a question "who hit you over the head" and comes up with a name... it would be a mistake not to follow it up, right?

and now, chapter 35!

Yay - Ellery's awake!  I think.   :-\  Or maybe he is still dreaming?  Or did Colson fall asleep in the chair and now he's dreaming?   :laugh: 

So .... he thinks it's 1971 - but he knows Colson and he also recognized Dupree's name, so he hasn't forgotten the events of 1984 .... he just thinks they happened in 1971... or something like that?  Okay, I have to stop b/c now I'm getting a headache!   :laugh:  And Emilio is a detective from Tucson?  Holy crap. 

But Joe, with his "cool" voice and his "Like I always do" remark sounds a little miffed with Wes.  That's understandable b/c they're all under so much pressure, but I hope they can clear things up when things get back to normal - or whatever passes for "normal" in the Sheriff's Department!  Can't wait for more.  Thanks, Louise!

And chapter 36!

All roads were leading to Ellery Cantrell, just as he had thought.

That just becomes more and more evident, doesn't it?  I had to laugh when Reynolds used the "Yes, my liege" line, too.  LOL.  Glad to see him loosening up some - but, not too much, of course!  I hope Paula gets over her hurt feelings - there really isn't any reason for her to go to the hospital, but it's an awkward situation all around.  And poor Joe - he's taking it from all ends! Jeremy is dying to get to that hospital!  Maybe Wes can have Edna bake Joe something special when this is all over with.  Thanks, Louise!
