Henry is a keeper, Paula!  I liked everything about his visit - he was genuine and funny and honest and direct. I thought it was great that he "came clean" in front of Mel and said he had nothing to hide.  And he finds Paula adorable!  :)   Thanks, Louise!

I wasn't sure whether Paula giggling like a schoolgirl at his "adorable" comment might have been over the top, but she DOES have the excuse that she's on intravenous pain meds and just had a traumatic shock!

Yes, there's that - but I kind of liked seeing the spontaneous side of Paula, not over the top, at all!

SPOILERS - Chapter 98 (98?!?  We are zeroing in on the big 100!)





Okay, now we're getting somewhere!  Not surprisingly, Wes is a masterful interrogator.  Easy to understand why Manuel and his mother are so frightened. 

“Oh yeah. Who hit my Chief Deputy over the head with a toilet snake?”

Wes is having to do some fancy footwork there.  What a weekend this is turning out to be - and it's not over yet by a long shot.

Had to laugh that Joe told Wes he had to be the one to talk to Colson next time he called.  I don't blame him!   This is great.  Thanks, Louise!  Looking forward to the big 100!

 :o 100 chapters already! Wow!

I hope that this visit with Dr. Sampson will be a turning point for Ellery. I know how he (and Colson) hate to go to the hospital. Knowing that he can get pain relief from the visiting nurse will relieve the stress. This means he can just stay at home and get better. You describe what this medication is doing to him in a very realistic way Louise.

And isn't it amazing that Ellery never looses his sense of humour, no matter how poorly he's feeling. Glad to see Colson is playing along a bit, even in the presence of company.

Thanks Louise.  :)

I've had my share of run-ins with intravenous and intramuscular narcotics, that's for sure!

and that has a lot to do with Ellery keeping his sense of humor!!!

Thanks for reading!  I think you folks like the daily updates more than the weekly ones!
