Mr. Taylor looked over at Pete who was wringing his hands and appeared to be working up a sweat. “It’s okay Pete, you can tell me, let’s get this out in the open and then we can all go home for the long weekend.”

    I wonder what other plans mom has in mind? I think there is going to be a quick exit if she has her way.

    I’ll be back next week to see what happens!

    The question is – why? Hope we get an inkling of that next week!
