Wow - that was fast.  You weren't kidding about staying tuned!

“It’s okay, yer safe from me, yer much too young.”

 :laugh:  Among other things!  Interesting dream he had.  I know he doesn't want to retire to a tropical beach, but the anxiety about losing Colson has to be coming from something else.   :-\

“No problem with that. Not sure I could sit up unless ya pointed a gun at me –“ he stopped dead, a thought slipping away from him like an overcooked noodle slipping from a spoon.

Now that sounds like a clue to ..... something????

Here comes your man, Colson - and no, he ain't feelin any pain at all!  Thanks, Louise!

http://louisev.livejournal.com/311707.html

Well, Colson hasn't been living with a chief deputy this past year for nothing!  But, uh oh.  I know one a.d.a who will be none too pleased to have her evening interrupted when her date is called into service .....  :-\  Thanks, Louise!

Well, I'd be relieved that the calls didn't start until early morning, except that it looks like there was nothing to interrupt the night before as far as Henry and Paula are concerned!   :-\   

Looks like this may turn out to be a very productive Sunday with Ozzie, et al back in town and in custody and with Ellery on the edge of a breakthrough. 

“Yeah, ya asked me that already, are you testin my mental acuity here?”

 :laugh:  Poor Henry.  It's hard enough to deal with Ellery, let alone when you're  half-awake, slightly hung over and urgently needing to pee!  Thanks, Louise!

Yep, there was a bit of a no-showing last night...as you know I have a bit of an allergy when it comes to happily-ever-afters.  After all, the only happy couple that is a really happy couple in that story without bumps or diversions, is Edna and Wes.  Mel and Bunny (good god!) Esteban's marriage is probably on the rocks, Colson and Ellery fight regularly, Jeremy and Nick even moreso, and even the otherwise-idyllic partnership of Pookie and Simon has seen trouble in paradise.  Not to mention the on-again off-again fortunes of Jeeves, Lance, Sergio, Clyde and Jerry from the Red Stallion.  So will a Happily Ever After firm up for Henry and Paula?  Weeelllll, not so fast, amiga!

I guess this is why I don't think my work is suitable for the "romance" genre, cause I just don't see a lot of happily ever afters in my characters' lives.
