Most surprising, considering the implied conclusion, was the lack of congratulatory messages being offered on the whoismcafee blog. Perhaps everyone has finally learned that where JM is concerned, jumping to conclusions doesn't usually work....
And now, the biggest question of this story in weeks, has been answered. There was no wedding, Sam & John remain engaged, their nuptials pending. According to John, they will marry, but under their terms. Sounds reasonable. It also sounds like the wedding will probably take place in the States. John has enrolled Sam in a jewelry making school in Portland, indicating he has confidence in her Visa being granted (soon). As sweet as it is to see John worried about Sam's future, it was even more touching to know that Sam is dreaming much bigger, and wants to be a lawyer. That makes me smile.
On a funny note, Mary, in summarizing the events of the past month, mentions being harassed by John's stalker....we all know who it is, but he shall remain nameless here. The hate he spewed, directed at Mary, showed exactly how close to the end of his ropes he is. To attack the author because his ranting and raving of blatant lies about his intended target now fall on deaf ears, is an excellent indication of his disconnect from reality. This entire campaign he has waged against John, with a $pecific goal in mind, is coming to an end.....unsuccessfully.
