Oh believe me, you don't want the storms and rain we've had here in Holland and Europe the last couple of days! A few of the houses rooftops were half blown off in my neighbourhood on Thursday!

Oh, you're in Europe - choi oi!! I saw some footage of those storms; the wind was so strong it actually bumped an airliner catty-wompus as it was taking off. Even in the Midwestern US where we have monster storms, I don't remember one like that.

I've read everything now and I just have to say that I'm so in love with the way you're writing this story. I was so pleased Ennis picked up that phone! And I must say, David's offer was a complete surprise to me! I can't wait for more on this  :)

Yeah, it was a surprise to Ennis, too; but David had been thinking about it all along, and so had Jack.   ;)

That's one of the aspects I love so much about this story too  :) You do that so so well.

That part just cut my heart out but it was so beautifully written.

Well I'll just have to post and leave more comments then!  :)

I'm loving reading everyone's thoughts on this story.

I'm glad you're still committed to the story, Marcia... In an odd way, I find the slow pace reassuring.

I read the last chapters, but I am still not able to comment....I guess it was that emotional..., maybe I need to read it again to be able to leave a coherent comment that Marge deserves....

Marcia...

I just flicked back to your first post on this story to get the link because I want to reread again...and you said about 18 chapters.  It's not going to tie up so quickly is it?

I want it updated soon too!  :)

Am working on those all-important first impression Ennis gets in what is for him a very strange new environment. At this point in the story, I can use any info about Duluth I can get from people familiar with it - have been there but have never lived there.

Here are some pictures of Ennis' new home. It's an actual B&B in a lakeside Duluth neighborhood called Park Point. The furnishings in the indoor shots are contemporary and don't pertain to the story but the general look of the house and surroundings is what Ennis sees.
