I would like to say thank you to the very nice person who nominated me for a lifetime achievement award for writing on my story of Arlene and Jeff for more than nine years. He asked me to mention it in my blog. Thanks to you good people, there have been more than three point four million downloads to date. I plan to open-end the story when the Matthews Clan leaves earth in search of the race that built Ship's brain -- maybe a year or so more of weekly postings.
This week with Arlene and Jeff:
...Since Ada was in a wheelchair, Susan had said she was going to put the women in the double suite nearest the living room, which would make it easier on Ada to get around. As Jeff and Diana stopped in front of the suite's door, Diana went on, "When are you going to have Little One cure her?"
Jeff sighed. "Whenever I get the balls to tell her I have an alien Healer riding my back. Trust me, this lady may be a partial invalid, but she covers every inch she stands on, uh, sits on," he said, thinking of her wheelchair as he wound down with a blush. "Oh, hell, you know what I mean. Ada has had several things thrown in her lap today, and she's taken them well. But people tend to be a bit squeamish the first time they see Little One flow out of my collar, and Ada hasn't had any contact with the whole family, yet. I'm not even sure she's fully realized that she has actually been on a spaceship, no matter that Ship talked to her. Just imagine what she's gone through in the last hour. She really doesn't need any more shocks just yet, but I did say she would be walking by nightfall, so I have little choice but to do it now."...
Have a goodun;
