'Counterfeit'

Highlander Season Two

Pete Wilder just saved Richie from an attack by some guys wearing Watcher tattoos. Or did he? Nothing is what it seems, and MacLeod becomes increasingly wary of Pete, despite Richie's protests that the guy is his friend. When MacLeod's mistrust gets the possibly innocent Pete killed, Mac becomes increasingly unsure of himself. Unknown to MacLeod, his old enemy Horton is pulling all the strings. Horton is secretly training escaped killer Lisa Halle to go after MacLeod while he's troubled and vulnerable.

Duncan must deal with a woman who is a dead ringer for the deceased Tessa, but must wonder if she's part of some scheme to kill him once and for all.

'Prove It'

A lunch hour drabble. If you're bored too, feel free to make it a drabble round robin.

“This seat taken?”

“I assume it is now.”

“I suppose it is at that.” He slid onto the empty barstool. “May I join you?”

Deliberately picking up her glass and draining what was left of its contents, she replied, “No.” Setting it down, she reached for her purse.

“You could let me buy you another.”

“That’s one option, I suppose.”

“And the other?”

“You could go bother some other poor woman.”

“But I like bothering you.”

“My lucky day.”

He smirked. “It could be.”

“Does this shtick of yours actually work?”

“It has been known to on occasion.”

“Prove it.”

The End?

Brings Back Memories

I just turned the channel a few minutes ago to the news that President Ford had died. Back when I was in junior high, his was the very first presidential campaign I volunteered for. It was part of a school assignment, to collect information on the election, and I stuck around and helped out. It was the beginning of a life long interest in politics for me. Odd the things you remember at times like these.

My prayers for him and for his family.
