Chapter 8 – Mid October
The next morning, Bette and Tina woke up smiling. They had a wonderful night’s sleep after making love. They were coming to the realization that their minds were willing but their bodies had its limitations. Fortunately, the frequency of sex made up for the number of orgasms in a single love making session.
On Thursday evening, after dinner, Bette and Tina resumed their work on the report on Melvin William Porter. They reviewed the first section and double checked the backup paper work from which they drew their conclusions. They then started the ending section which would cross reference the backup documents which Bette and Tina would keep in their files. They choose one or two to include actual copies in the report which they felt would allow the reader to see what information they used to draw their conclusions.
On Friday, Tina decided to leave Bette to do her writing on each of the questions and then to matchup the research to her writing. Before leaving Tina made Bette some chicken salad for her lunch. There were croissants and potato salad and some cole slaw as well. Bette worked steadily until noon and then took a 30 minute for a break. She remembered that Margaret, Daniel and John David would be home around 3:30. The plan was for them to have a snack and then swim.
Bette would prepare the evening meal which would be cooked on the grill. Bette has chosen steak, corn on the cob and grilled tomatoes. She also had skewers of vegetables to grill which included yellow squash, zucchini, tommy toe tomatoes, and onion pieces. Tina had a loin of rib eye specially cut into thick slices for the family. Daniel was a real beef lover. Bette put the steaks in a marinate of garlic and Worcestershire sauce. She went ahead and retrieved frozen corn from the freezer. She then took some soften butter and pasted the ears with a thick layer. She wrapped each ear in aluminum foil and put it into the fridge. She had made two each for Daniel and John David and only one each for her, Tina and Margaret. She then prepared the tomatoes. She selected 5 medium size tomatoes and cored them she placed them in aluminum foil individually and filled he hollowed area with Italian dressing. She then wrapped them tightly and placed them in the refrigerator. She then cut the vegetable for the skewers and prepared them. She then placed them in a dish and cover them and placed them in the refrigerator. She decided to have an apple pie for dessert. But she would not cook that until later in the afternoon. She was going to use a premade ready to bake pie. So, she got it out of the freezer and placed it in the refrigerator.

This is such a lovely story.
I love how attentive Bette and Tina are to each other and their family. Margaret has fitted in well and become part of the family and I have a feeling her and Mary are going to become close friends as well.
Oh well, off to Bear Mountain for fun and relaxation…can’t wait , thank you !
Janice… Both Bette and Tina were raised without a caring mother during their childhood. Tina’s mother although present had no interest in her children. So they both have somewhat subconsciously been looking for mother figures in their lives. Peggy has taken on that role for Bette until she found Mary. Her relationship with Mary has been long distance and been evolving. So now that they live in Los Angeles along with Paris and Kit, it seems like a natural progression for Mary to move to Los Angeles. Margaret joining the household is an act of the universe and for Tina gives her a surrogate mother figure. Yes, Margaret is a wonderful addition to the family. She and Mary provide companionship for each other so that they do not feel that they are a burden on Bette and Tina. They fill a need for each of them to have a social partner in the household as well as the family. And the house is large enough to provide each member some private space when that is desired as well. It is the ideal arrangement for both of them in their stage of life. However, Bette and Tina want both of these women to have their independence and lead the lives they wish to live for as long as they are able. You see, they really are capable of giving support and comfort and yet the space to lead their own lives. Margaret is the ideal person to assist Mary with this monumental move in her life. And both Mary and Margaret are getting the family back in their life which they both deeply desire. I particularly wanted Bette and Tina to realize and act that both of these women are adults capable of directing their own lives and not children or additional dependents.
