here is my story - yet another filler chapter


Back in the city, Stanley and Irene had commandeered an incident room and filled it with boxes of files dragged up from the cold cases storage room. Everything dated up to sixteen years ago and from the area enclosing Shark Cove, Littleton, and Braytown. Pushing two tables together, they sat one on each side, reading files, making notes and swapping thoughts and ideas. Irene was the…

A little late but here I am and with no intro blurb.....

We've been promised a week of cooler temperatures, so I've been taking advantage of that to get a little freezer work done.
Also out walking more, now there's no danger of melting on the footpath and running into the gutter and down a drain.

Here's this morning's work:

all nicely packaged and labelled in reusable lunchboxes
ready to cook burgers, I'd better remember to buy burger buns
pre-cooked sausages, I like to cook the whole pack at once then freeze them, since I rarely eat more than one sausage at a time and it seems wasteful to use the griller for just one sausage.
into the freezer with them. The labelled lunchbox at the back is my last serving of spaghetti sauce. I'll be making a new batch sometime this week.

Here is my story: another filler chapter


Stanley’s notes were filled with revelations. When he’d mentioned getting the maps from Bernice, Ed had said they both knew Bernice although not well, Bernice being a cousin, possibly a second cousin, to Sara’s mother, and believed to be the only surviving member of that branch of the family. Once Sara and Irene had carried in the tea and cake, Ed told Sara that Bernice was still alive and living i…

here is my story: a filler chapter


Next morning, Tom was eager to explore the darkroom and see if everything was in working order. After so many years untouched, the chemicals for developing would need replacing, but hopefully the wash trays and red light would be okay. At breakfast, he asked Sara where the room was exactly and was surprised to find it was the rundown looking cabin he’d seen on the drive in. He mentioned this to Sara, saying …
