Fight of my Life

I suppose you have been wondering what I have been up to since my last blog? My last mission had an unscheduled stop in Port Charles, where I had the fight of my life, with colon cancer. I'm a lucky man to have such an incredible daughter. I wanted to ignore what was wrong and go down in a blaze of glory. Robin made me realize I had to face this and fight. I'm grateful to have her and Anna, who helped me through the rough times. Who ever thought that something like colon cancer would nearly take me out? The fight isn't over yet, but I'm ready to accept this now and do whatever I have to do to beat it. I have a grandchild on the way. My only regret is that it looks like I am going to miss my daughter's wedding. I'm so grateful we did reconnect. I would do it all again just to have my daughter back.

I'm on a flight home now. At least, I hope I have a home to go to. I managed to call Holly from the hospital a few times, but I wasn't exactly truthful with her about where I was or what was happening. She is going to be furious with me. I sent a dozen roses ahead to soften her up. I just hope she understands everything. I think the part that is really going to put me in the doghouse is Anna was there. She knows I love Anna, but nothing can ever compare or replace the love Holly and I share. I'm so glad Holly isn't the violent type. Wish me luck, I'm going to need it.

Back in the Jungle

Christmas is almost here. I cannot believe I have spent the last few weeks in the Amazon with Anna on a mission. Holly is less then thrilled, she hates the jungle. After the mess last year, so do I. I hope this caper wraps up soon. Christmas in the jungle is not what I had in mind. All this bickering with Anna is grating on my nerves and Holly looks ready to shoot both us. I thought we were supposed to be retired. How the hell did I end up here?

Checking in

Holly and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time getting to know each other again. It was not long before that bloody cell phone started ringing again. I knew we should have thrown both of them into the ocean when we had the chance. It seems we have impressed some people with our partnership on our last caper, that our services were required on another caper. We have been deep uncover and I cannot discuss any of the details. Seems retirement is one thing it is difficult for the both of us to manage. At least, we are together. I love working so closely with Holly. She never ceases to amaze me.

I will check in from time to time. I am hoping we can get a visit to Port Charles in soon. Right now, Anna is there visiting Robin and reliving her teenaged years trying to help Noah impersonate an ailing Eli Love. You know, that is something I wish I could see. Poor Robin is stressing over the whole thing. She should know her mother has a good head on her shoulders and she should not worry.

And now for a little sunshine

It is finally all over. We got Helena under lock and key. Holly's plan had me worried about her. She was in a lot of danger, but her plan worked brilliantly! I had to admit she is a fantastic agent and she has not stopped gloating since I said it. She is beautiful when she rubs it in.

So, to fill you all in, Helena had gotten Mikkos' weather machine up and running, with the help of those kidnapped scientists (I never knew meteorologists had real education - I just thought they looked pretty on the TV news). This time it was more powerful than Mikkos had ever dreamed it could be, instead of just freezing Port Charles, this thing was strong enough to freeze the whole damn world.

The catch was that it required all those jewels we found in the Markham Islands to get the bloody thing to work. The bounty hunters botched Helena's plans when they stole them and sold them. Holly and Helena had been chasing those jewels all over the globe. Luckily for Holly, I was there to help her. That is when everything started to go in her favor and she managed to obtain half of the jewels. We just lured Helena into our trap and she completely fell for it. Holly used herself as bait and I closed the trap for her.

Holly just retired and gave up being an agent and we plan on celebrating her retirement on the beach. We are going to head back to Port Charles soon. We need to visit with Robin and let our friends know what was really going on last year. I think Holly wants us to take on the mob and rid PC of all the riff-raff. Right now, I think I am going to take on the mob that will surely be surrounding her on the
beach if I don't get down there soon.

I will try to check back in, but don't worry if you don't hear from us, it just means we're too busy catching up. Now to enjoy our victory!!!

Working Together

This is a disaster. It looks like our only choice is the plan Holly has concocted. And her plan puts her right in the middle of all the danger. She just expects me to be bloody all right with all of it! After all the time we lost together, she thinks I am going to be perfectly willing to allow her to willingly walk into danger. Bloody hell, she isn't just walking into it, she is practically courting it. Fortunately for her, I will be right there to make sure she is safe. She might think she has this all planned out, but the old man still has a few tricks up his sleeve. We always did make a great team. I think that is the key here. This is her plan, but we will make it work together.

Making Progress

Seems that Helena has resurrected an old Cassadine past-time of trying to put the world back into the Ice Age. Fortunately, the world has a couple of crackerjack agents to foil their plans. Holly and I have managed to find and rescue those scientists Helena kidnapped. Although, their work was completed and the old bat flew the cave with the finished weather machine. Of course, it seems she cannot use it without the rest of the jewels.

I managed to get Holly through it all completely unscathed. I cannot say the same thing. I am not as young as I used to be and those thugs of Helena's seemed to have been working out a lot. Holly seems to be spending too much time gloating over the success of her plan, OUR plan. You would think she would be a little more sensitive. I remember when she used to be a little more sympathetic to my injuries.

I can see she has that look in her eye. I have a feeling she is cooking up a new plan, and I have a feeling I am not going to like it.

She is going to drive me crazy...

I have no idea what the bloody hell Holly was thinking. Correct that, she was not thinking at all. I cannot believe that she would use herself as bait to lure out Helena. Lord only knows what would have happened if I hadn't have shown up! She was fuming that I spoiled her plan. What kind of plan is dangling those bloody jewels in front of Helena? I know she has been doing this for quite awhile now, but this is the Cassadines we are dealing with here. What makes me even more furious is she did this without telling me. She can be so damn impetuous. Right now she is so mad at me, she is being positively icy. I am hoping the weekend and some good news might create a little thaw. What a far cry from a few nights ago.... I cannot wait until this bloody caper is over and done.
