Part IV will be posted early this evening,west coast time. Thanks for hanging in there and I apologize for the delay. Illness, followed by a work trip, followed by a wonderful (albeit short) trip to meet my new nephew have all conspired to delay my writing. It's been a lesson learned for me, the blog may not be the place to develop a short story. Then again, if I didn't feel like someone was out there waiting for the rest of the story I might quit entirely and not finish it. Hmm.....things to think about now that I am at the end of my "one year of blogging" commitment.
Be sure to check back later tonight or tomorrow for a bit more of the story. I'll finish it up next Sunday with Part V.
