I am amazed by the detail in the description of McCormick's trials and tribulations with the Coyote not being the Batmobile. And I love the dialogue and interaction between Mark and the Judge - it sounds exactly like I would imagine them conversing if this had been an episode; the way Hardcastle teasingly makes fun of McCormick, the way McCormick is clueless yet insightful. This story is just another reason why I am addicted to the H&M portion of this site.

Oh, Paula, where do I start? What a wonderful story that had the feel of an episode, with the conversations between our friends just so spot on. Ditto the other reviews, and I too just loved the whole swirl pot explanation. "I'm familiar with elementary physics, McCormick." I love these glimpses into just how smart Mark really is.
Now, I made the mistake of reading this on the treadmill-on an empty stomach. Yep, you guessed it...went to the grocery store to buy ham and roast port. No traditional grill press-just a George Foreman, but hey, it works! Great story, great menu idea, just all around fun.
Perfect for a cold Wisconsin morning.

The action was so great in 'd been a while for this kind of story and also a story from you which I'm happy to see again.
The swirl pot that Mark was explaining a part I liked.
The banter was just terrific.
I loved everything about this story.
You know when I saw Hardcastle go in that store to give that one dollar and twenty three cents I just thought that is so wonderful to be that know not many people would be that honest nowadays.I know I would though.I would definately do what Hardcastle did there giving the money.

I have to say, yours is an author alert I've missed finding in my mailbox lately, and this story just reminds me why I added you there to begin with. It's just an exquisite little tale, and so true to life (uh, I mean, true to canon) about how these guys are just sort of trouble magnets.
But in a story filled with wonderfully entertaining and in-character dialogue, I have to say that my favorite bit is the entire exchange about the limes: the repayment, the reason for the original purchase, all of it, but especially this: "Who knew there’s a kind of lime that’s not organic? They grow on trees, don’t they? Last time I checked that makes things organic.” That right there is absolutely classic.

I just love this! And it was such a wonderful surprise to find it here, too. So many great lines of dialogue - the one-sided swirl pot conversation, the "is there something you want to tell me", the shopping for snacks excursion, the "enough head injuries for one day". But the action scenes keep right up with the snappy banter. Lots of drama, great descriptions, a terrific wrap-up with the pills and a little self-realization.
Beautifully, beautifully done; I can't wait for your next story and hope it's soon. (There's absolutely nothing subtle about me!)

Welcome back! I've missed your additions to the lore. This one was worth waiting for. I loved the transition from light banter to action, and back again, and your characters are always precisely in tune. Thanks for the treat.
