Well, well, well, the lady doth protest too much, methinks!

All it’d take is a nice lookin girl ta start showin Jeremy all sorts of attention with his bad ankle an all, maybe even goin up there an cookin an lookin after em an all – without even bein asked, an lookin all innocent at the same time –“

Man oh man, does he have her number, or what?   :laugh: 

“That went well,” Colson commented, looking at the phone.

Actually, I think it did - from Colson's end at least.  He made his point quite well and didn't get sucked into the melodrama.  Now we need to have Jeremy do his part - or, maybe I should say, not to do his part!  And leave it to the Chief Deputy, even in his state, to be aware of the exact amount of Glenfiddle left in the bottle!  Thanks, Louise!

Ellery watches the scotch bottle like a hawk! which doesn't bode well for his addictive tendencies, certainly!

I'm all caught up with the latest chapters. And boy, oh boy, it never rains but it pours right?

I couldn't believe all the drama that is going on. Someone should bang a few heads together and make people see sense. Jeez, at this rate, Ellery will end up in the hospital again because it's the only place he can get some peace and quiet!

Maybe Wes should be a big, and I mean a very big 'DO NOT DISTURB - SHERIFF'S ORDERS' sign in the front yard.

But....it's so much fun reading! Thanks Louise.  :)


I wonder how Paula's doing.

Oh, crap.   :-\  And things were looking so promising with that pool boy and general gofer position getting filled so quickly!

Poor Paula with her painfully bandaged feet and poor Jeremy hobbling on his crutches - most of me feels sorry for both of them.  But a part of me is a little irritated with the two of them for the mixed messages they keep putting out there!  Poor Henry, too.  He's so genuinely concerned for Paula and so sincerely interested in her.

You may have to wait until your feet are healed, but you'll kick yourself if you blow this, Paula!  Thanks, Louise!

nothing is ever easy in my stories except how readily Ellery consumes baked goods and Wayne comes up with a new way to get under Colson's skin.  The romances - they're never that easy!

Even if they can't prosecute, Wes realizes that none of them will be able to rest until they know "who and "why."  And they need rest!  Dust off those mug books ....

“I like ta think it’s gotten less wicked, at least as far as people toleratin queers more than they used ta,” Ellery said with determination, and this time, when he looked at Colson, he held his sober gaze. “An I like ta think I’m makin a difference in that direction.”

I think you are, Ellery.  And you've got some good people by your side, too.   :)  Thanks, Louise!
