Roylsden #171

"According to one of the Sherman kids, McGinley offered to buy Eddie Sherman's holding!"
Sheriff Cole rubbed tired eyes. His words came out slowly: "That land is right next to the Prendergast place. What in hell's he wanting to build on there, Mick, a palace?"
"Dunno, Sheriff. But if Sherman sells, McGinley will own all the land to the north of Roylsden."
"So what's he doing, Mick. Dya really think he wants to own all of Roylsden?"
"Lock and stock, Sheriff, sure looks like it."
"Let's check it out then. See if the story's true. Let's go see Eddie Sherman."

    I’ve forgotten who Eddie Sherman is... guess I’ll just have to read through it all again.

    He's the guy who was there, or found, Anna. I'm not sure if he's a good guy or a baddie, but he's not out and out evil. Probably.

    Thanks for the final word Drew. Now I know where some of it’s going. Maybe.

    Still loving this, Drew.

    Just an update. I got back from the doc today. I have something called chronic venous disease that's causing the swelling in my leg. Both legs have it, actually, but only one is swelling right now. I have to have three surgeries to correct it, in July, September and October. So, hopefully by Christmas I'll be back to normal. Or at least normal for me!

    Wow Christopher, that sounds horrendous! Poor you. That seems a helluva long time to wait (until October) for it to be fixed. I hope it doesn’t completely wreck your summer, although I suspect it isn’t exactly going to be a barrel of laughs. All the best for a successful resolution.

    Thanks, Neville. The one in July is for the leg that's swelling, and that's only about 4 weeks away, so if the other leg doesn't start exhibiting any symptoms then I should be in pretty good shape after that first surgery.

    Thoughts and/or prayers are appreciated. 😊
