  1. Each of my children was different, almost from the beginning. And they kept changing. So something I’d say about Del one day wouldn’t be true even a week later. I learned a lot from him. I’d been around babies ever since I was little, so having one of my own seemed very ordinary. But when Del was born, nothing seemed half so important as being his mama. And I was a lot better with Joann, who was only born eight years later. In the four years when it was just Del, Martin, and me

    Thanks for the comments. Good to know. I suspected that would happen because the genre has fairly strict expectations. That's why I kept this short. I can't say anything more because of other readers.

    And yet other people prefer the familiarity and reassurance of small towns -- and knowing everyone around you and being happy in a routine. Personally, I like that comfort, while also knowing there's a larger world and staying loosely in touch with it.

    Chapter 14

    Owen called it exactly right – because nothing new happened for almost the next two months. Elena looked for reports of the shooter every day, but none appeared, not from any of the stations or campuses from Springfield to Greenfield or Westfield to Amherst. Certainly nothing happened in Waldron or Elena would have known it. Even the UMass Nerf battles gave way as football season wound down, temperatures cooled, and students started to wear heavier clothes. “It’s more like armor,” she pointed ou
  5. For a while, Dougie joked, all I seemed to do was have babies and go to my nieces’ weddings. In and around helping run the farm, of course. Sonny’s older daughter got married shortly before my second son, Neal, was born. Then his younger daughter surprised everyone and got married at seventeen. Sonny and Ruth took it with a shrug. “Jack’s a nice boy,” Ruth said, “and I’m sure he’ll do well. Besides, Madeline’s finished with high school. So it seems a good time.”

    That would make the shooter kind of a nut, and I'm not sure that's a good way to draw attention to a good cause.

    Aw, who could dislike harmless little college kids?

    Chapter 13

    The Springfield TV stations were extremely helpful, and the Internet picked up from there. One of the stations even started with a sketch of what the shooter might look like, though there was a bit too much guerilla streetfighter in her: Long, dark brown hair pulled straight back and ending in a braid that curled in front of her shoulder. Camouflage jacket open over an olive drab T-shirt. Tight camo pants ending in heavy brown hiking boots. A second station softened that image some, with the sho

    Interesting. Thanks. But since these are part of the plot, I can't comment.

    About what? This is important. It can be improved.

    That's what the gang is hoping for -- that slip up.

    Ike is talking about the Nerf bullets, not the original tattoo targets.
