And here we are again, with all roads leading to Ellery!  Or, I should say, Chief Deputy Cantrell.  Even in a t-shirt, bermuda shorts and full of morphine he is "back in action" when need be.   Poor Esteban, having to face an angry Colson!  But Colson is right that Ellery really didn't seem to mind the intrusion at all.  But how long until the next group arrives at Grand Central Station....  Thanks, Louise!

bwah hahahah you might have to wait to find out!  I was busily preparing for my imminent departure from Illinois, including multiple bread-bakings, cooking up my remaining food, and packing.  I had the actual time to do the writing, but I didn't have the mind for it.  I'll have time on the road - if I leave tomorrow morning... to consider the next phase of the fiasco!  But as soon as I get there, I'll have the next 5 days to devote almost entirely to the novel!
“Mr. Coyote always gets me good, boy,”  Ellery said, winking.  “Almost forgot what life was like before I got me my own personal coyote.”

Safe travels, Louise! Five days to devote to the story?   :D

I miscounted... I dont start my job until Wednesday, and today was taken up with driving, so taht leaves me Sunday through Tuesday... more than the amount I usually get between jobs!

I arrived safe and sound, I'm on the net, and turning my attention now to where we last saw Ellery!

Sunday morning ETA: I didn't have an ounce of imagination left in me by 10 last night, so I came up blank.  But now I'm back at the computer and looknig at the page so another chapter will be out soonest!

“Say, maybe we should ask the girls if they want ta tag along an see how things are goin? Maybe they can bring some cookies over or somethin.”

“Great idea!” Nick skipped down the last of the steps and rang the bell.


 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  OMG. If those aren't famous last words.   Let's take roll call.  A pissed off and jealous Colson, a high-flying hypnotized Ellery, an astonished and confused Henry, a double-scale and in a hurry Glligan, an embarrassed and nervous Esteban, an out-of-sorts Jeremy, a jealous, but momentarily appeased Nicky, and a set of eager to please and too curious twins.   Ay yi yi!  This isn't a fiasco - it's a FIASCO!

Thanks, Louise!
