The Boy on the Plane by Cole Parker

Recommended Posts

Cole's first chapter has got be caught. The only problem is that I have to wait for other chapters to arrive. I always enjoy Cole's writing and this has all the indications of being as gripping as his other stories.

Wondering if there was any resonance with Boys on Trains, I took the bait, and like his protagonist on the plane,   Cole has struck and set his hook. 

I am eagerly awaiting chapters two onwards.

This one is a bit lengthy.  Not as long as DDG and perhaps some others, but long enough for you to sit back, relax, and let it come to you.

 

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Sucked in hook line and sinker... AGAIN!

How Cole does it, is beyond me. He must have a fresh army of simian, typewriter pounding, assistants.

I learnt a new word: exurb. Yay me.

Roll on chapter 2!

Aside from Cole dissing Boston this is off to a great start.  When do we find out about the puppy in the picture?  What a cutie.

I'm hooked. A great start, it'll now be infuriating that I have to keep stopping and waiting for the next installment.

Cole has done it again. How he keeps up the supply of creative juice I have no idea. My muse has been asleep for ages.

I was wondering the same thing.  Lab puppies are adorable.

In the case of Cole's stories: I like to be hooked. 🙂

You guys are too kind.

My muse is a hit-or-miss lady at this point.  More miss than hit.  I feel kind of like a prolific hitter in a slump and can't hit the curve ball all of a sudden.

I'm still in the game, but it's become frustrating.

I do like this current story, however.  I hope you guys continue to as well.

I love making meatloaf too, although it has been a while.  It seems to me that I added some shredded Swiss or Parmesan cheese to the glop also.

I'm loving the genre mashup: great story and cookbook. It should be trademarked! 👍

Robin's mother is a real piece of work. 🤬

Now, I'm off to see if I have the ingredients for a meatloaf. :w00t:

The other thing I recall about meatloaf is that it characteristically has a 50/50 mix of ground beef and ground veal.  But I object to veal on principle, so would not use it myself.

Ah ha ha! A possible thread divergence approaches as 'Boy on a Plane' becomes 'Boy in a Kitchen.'

Personally, I'm panting for Daniel's Pecan Pie recipe!

We always put raisins in meatloaf when I was a kid.  The habit still clings.
