    “This is so boring.”

    Less so with your dress tied high on the hip. Besides, you’re the one who emptied the cooler.

    The musical note in Sally’s greeting suggests she is more than an assistant to Doc. She awaits his return, and they appear to live together. An odd couple. Yet, the criminals in Tracy tend to be odd and unusual misfits. This strong transition leaves us in suspense regarding Tracy’s condition. Wondering when we’ll drop in to the hospital to see what condition Tracy’s condition is in.

    For someone standing in a cooler, Sedine strikes a dignified stance. Finger pointed skyward, hand upon hip, she sees her motive as so lofty as to warrant the sacrifice of libations. Roy better go find his friend the Bear. What a rare treat to see Michaela play wise older sister, bringing Gabby to heel as she grasps the bottle. Love Michaela’s expressions and Ow’s reaction to big sister’s pronouncement. More of the good stuff from BeaR.

    Makes perfect sense that Tracy could still be wearing body armor. While time is inexact in the ebb and flow of events, this is likely the close of the day when B-B Eyes was brought to justice. Not knowing how badly Tracy is hurt is, of course, part of the dramatic tension. I doubt that Team Tracy will put him in a hospital bed for the duration of the story. B.O. Plenty and Groovy Grove are two memorable examples of hospital bed-ridden crime victims. One recovered, the other did not.

    Excellent start to this tale. The two-day teaser introduced us to “Little Doc” and his assistant, Sally. For Tracy to be the victim of gunshots at the outset makes for immediate action and tension. Sam comes to Tracy’s aid, which is exactly as it should be. Tracy needs a helping hand, and ever-dependable Sam Catchem is on it. A captivating set up.

    Careful with the glass, girls. That nectar is bottled under pressure. Get Daddy’s beverages safely to the garage, and there will be something extra in your allowance envelopes this month.

    Michaela is multi-tasking with a soccer ball and jump-rope. Someone’s been watching the USWNT. Good girl.

    That’s because his mouth is connected to his unstable mind.

    The man who sent the “killer book” is the shooter. Due to the flies it is safe to surmise that “Little Doc” shot Tracy. The two day teaser set up this new story. Obviously, the MCU will be all over this cowardly attempt on Tracy’s life. My hope is that Mysta lends a hand in bringing the shooter to justice.
