I was away all of last weekend and will be gone Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday this weekend. I expect I will have the first draft of Chapter 73 done by tomorrow night but can not possibly get it proofread and edited in time to post this weekend. It will be there next Friday night (1/28/11). This chapter is one that can not be rushed and pushed out half-assed or full of errors.
The only compensation I can give to those who are impatiently waiting for is the final paragraph of the chapter. It occurs Saturday night at the hotel in Times Square after the Heisman announcement.
"I snuggled up behind Penny after we finished making love the last time. She clasped my hand over her heart as she fell asleep. I thought about what a day it had been. All in all, this was the best day of my life."
Have patience. I will get things done in due time.
