you are getting very good at predicting things, Marie!  I wonder if that means I'm becoming predictable!


Nah, I didn't see Paula's accident or Jeremy's fall coming at all - and I'm still not sure what's going to happen with Paula and Henry.  As for Nick running into the emergency room like gangbusters - that's not so much a prediction as just knowing Nicky.  Having said that ..... I'm not at all sure what Nick will say to Jeremy - and vice versa - when he does get there!

SPOILERS







You know, I'm really glad Wes is there - not just b/c he was able to quickly dismiss the twins and Janice, but his authoritative presence and love for Ellery has to give Colson some comfort when he has so much weighing on him right now.  Not surpirsingly, Colson has a good insight into what's going on with Nick and Jeremy - but, of course, he doesn't know about how Jeremy wanted to visit Paula and how that enters into the equation.  Wonder what he'd think about that.

And that nurse certainly had the legs. If he hadn’t been up to his eyeballs with Ellery, and sick at heart for the past five days since the attack, he would have given that one a second look himself.

 :laugh:  I guess that pesky 20% is bound to pop up from time to time. And Jeremy's 20% has poor Nicky pretty scared right now. 

As for Wayne .... sigh.  He just never learns.   Why in the world he would purposely taunt Colson of all people and now of all times.  I have to say that the evil part of me wouldn't mind seeing Simon show up .....  Great stuff, Louise.  Thanks!

The logic of Wayne


Generally speaking, Wayne taunts people to grab attention, when he fears their attention will veer away from him.  Regardless of how much their attention is required elsewhere.  He prefers being the sickest man in the room, and if someone else is sick or had an accident, trust Wayne to act up!  And besides that, he's miffed that his expensive liqueur was confiscated by Colson so he's getting his own back.

Man oh man, you have that sister bickering down perfectly!   :laugh:

Ya know, yer turnin inta momma.

Ouch.  But I think Pam's got a point, actually .... we learn by example whether we realize it or not. 

So if I recall, it's summer and the girls haven't been able to start college classes yet, right?  Because they need SOMETHING TO DO.  And it shouldn't involve Ellery, Colson, Jeremy or Nick!  Maybe they can help out at the ranch..look for part-time jobs....go the library.....do volunteer work..... basically anything other than what they are doing now!  Thanks, Louise!

 :laugh: :laugh:  True.  When she thinks she and her French cookbook can outdo Edna, you know there's no reasoning with her!
