    Chapter 17

    You tell it, sister! I've been accused of never killing characters off (even though I have) so I encourage other authors to do it. Right now I have a Russian spy and an obnoxious supervisor who readers would probably encourage me to kill, but it's more fun when I off someone unexpectedly. I need to get a gun into my MC's hands.

    Yeah, but where's the fun in that? We need maiming, blood, and cliffies!

    We'll respect him the following morning, but he'll probably be dead by then.

    Odds on Elijah surviving? Anyone?
  5. Hand them each a phone and they'll leave you alone to enjoy the parks.
  6. Either one of you spend two college summers working as a tour guide and listening to that stupid song a few hundred times. I didn't return to WDW for at least a decade afterwards. The was no magic in the kingdom for me. Funny thing is I'm considering a visit to the Magic Kingdom of all places, for research purposes. If I decide to write about a trip there (7 kids aged 3-7) I might want to go sit and watch what kids do and their expressions. It's been a while
  7. real gators are good eating. Just don't be stupid and jump in a canal where they live!
  8. I bleed green and orange. The only good gator is the one my shoes and belt were made from. Friends don't let friends go to FSU. And the worst of the snowbirds are the Canadians (i'll go hide in a minute) blessed because they support our economy, damned for their driving. I mean, 40mph in the Express Lanes? Does that prove I'm a Floridian? LMAO My Earth Day stories are based in the Keys and star a 6 yo girl. This year's will be about coral reefs, next year's about invasive species. Probably targeting iguanas, Brazilian pepper, pythons, and lion fish.

    This baby wants one of those pacifiers Owen dips in Liston wine...
  10. LMAO They're an invasive species and Florida residents are encouraged to kill as many of them as we can. Same with pythons in the Everglades. Doesn't Florida sound like a great place to visit?
  11. 45 last night. The heater built into my bedroom's wall has been turned on for the first time this season. I hope we lost a lot of those critters. They've been breeding like crazy because there's been no real cold weather the past few years. MY EARTH DAY KIDS STORY NEXT YEAR WILL FEATURE IGUANAS LOL sorry about caps on tablet and too lazy to fix
  12. @Ryan Jones I expanded a couple chapters in my current novel a bit to take into account fires in Colorado and snow in D.C.. Damn my traveling characters. Hey everyone. I know Kitt's a frequent visitor here and I'm wondering if any of you has heard from her outside GA. She hasn't been here in the last 10 days, which is surprising, and I haven't received a reply to the email I sent her. Not that I'm panicking, but with the number of members who have dropped off during the pandemic... Hope y'all have a good week.

    You can't call the Chinese, they show up later in this story. As for your Northern Ireland friends, I'll have to call on the Mexican cartels to deal with them.

    LMAO - I just mentioned to someone I try to avoid torches and pitchforks, but in this case I may have to take a stand. CJ, can I borrow Lola?

    Thank you. Somehow I missed that.

    You forgot about the wine tasting? Wow! And here I thought I was the one with short term memory issues. I blame my problem on too much pot smoking in my youth. What's your excuse?

    Mr Responsible up to a point. I can imagine CJ setting some rule she dislikes, appealing to Owen and Cesar who back CJ up, and to Brett who sides with her over her father. Can grandfathers be put on timeout?

    I mentioned keeping track of dates at some point... This chapter and the next one take place in early December 2021; that means the Bolshoi Ballet's about to arrive in town and CJ and Owen have an invite to opening night. And then it'll be Christmas! Can't wait to watch Liebe learn how to ski. Gotta keep you hooked so you don't miss the good stuff.
  19. I never quite decided if he had or not, but your thoughts make perfect sense. I could see him thinking the documentary would have nothing to do with his actual job so why bother. That would tie in with his tunnel vision. The ambassador looks at the bigger picture and sees the benefit of CJ's activities while Northman's too busy covering his ass by focusing on the micro aspects.

    He promised? I don't remember that part. Time to read it again. CJ would be 52 when he leaves the White House after a 2nd term. I'd say 30 years of retirement will give him enough time with Owen.

    Interesting observation. Knowing he was a disposable character, I did not bother with a detailed backstory. However, were I to speculate now, I could see him being something like the curator of Bayer's Mexican headquarters art collection, or being some sort of counselor or facilitator. You know, some millennial, new age crap. A couple of decades ago, I had a twenty-something German guy (friend of friends) stay with me in Miami for a week. He was backpacking the US for a few months. I probably didn't spend as much time with him as I should, but during one of our conversations, he mentioned doing community work instead of military service. Our German character could be a pacifist too. I know some Germans born decades after the Nazi atrocities carry those events as a burden.

    I would have quit reading it had I not encountered the story after it was entirely posted. Not so much for the multiple cliffhangers as for me not having patience. I do admire CJ's tenacity and dedication. The story was a monumental undertaking.

    @Anton_Cloche Thanks, Tony. Although the First Lady gets involved due to a personal friendship, I felt it would be a typical move for the wife of a politician to show up at a ribbon cutting and bask in the glory of the accomplishment. Politicos are the same all over the world. And you've discovered one of the reasons for the interaction between Cesar, Infanta, and Lupe. I wanted to reinforce CJ's empathy is a result of his fathers examples.

    Thank you! You want family warmth? The dads are in town for another day-and-a-half. Liebe deserves to spend more time with her grandfathers. All that and another Northman confrontation next Friday.

    Good move, Jim! Why try to reinvent the wheel? I admit to recycling at least three events from previous books in upcoming chapters!
