But first the hotshot media sensation needs a place to stay. With all of Louisville booked for Derby week, he snaps up the snug little bungalow his agent miraculously finds. Strapped for cash, glass artist Lulu Flannery has agreed to rent out her house for Derby, but is immediately overcome by second thoughts.

✏Playing Fast and Loose Book Summary : What is the origin of the idiom “playing fast and loose”? • a juggling trick using ropes performed in Roman times • a Medieval cheating game involving sticks and belts • the sordid sale of indulgences in the Catholic Church Playing Fast and Loose invites the reader to guess the correct origin of common idioms. For each of the fifty idioms, three scenarios have been constructed. One scenario contains a short description of the likely origin of the phrase with some selected historical context that illustrates its usage. The other two scenarios also present short vignettes with factually correct historical citations; however, these two descriptions are not considered the likely origin of the phrase. Dr. Smith has researched all the idioms in this book with the Google Books search engine. He read dozens of entries for each idiom, looking for evidence to support the origin of the idiom and for interesting and credible uses of the phrase to help create the two alternative scenarios. The three scenarios contain references to famous Greek and Latin authors from Homer and Aristotle to Seneca, Vergil, and Ovid; excerpts from English sources such as Shakespeare, Milton, Defoe, Scott, and Conan Doyle; and quotations from American authors as varied as Thoreau, Emerson, Twain, and P. T. Barnum. In addition, the reader will encounter many unusual and perhaps long forgotten historical sources: James Parton, Life of Andrew Jackson (1859); Hannah Glasse, The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy (1747); Elbert Smith, Practical Notes on Photography (1905); Bolton Hall, The Psychology of Sleep (1917); and Friedrich Christian Accum, Chemical Amusement, a Series of Curious and Instructive Experiments in Chemistry Which Are Easily Performed and Unattended by Danger (1817).

✏Running Fast and Loose Book Summary : Running Fast and Loose by Ronald Raptor is the sequel to the author’s first book, MONEY Is The DEVIL. The protagonist, James Falcon, M.D., a.k.a. “Falcon” , is a successful orthopedic surgeon whose career has been derailed by false accusations of sexual assault by two patients, Wanda Leblanc and Bea Dubuque, both diagnosable with borderline personality disorder. Falcon has found temporary work as a limousine driver, but wants to return to practicing his specialty of arthroscopic surgery. As this book opens Falcon decides to seek his fortune in Dubai, where he meets a group of Canadian orthopedists who have been contracted to provide medical care to the Emirati. His hopes are dashed, however, following a Google search prompted by the Canadians’ experience with the “South African Slasher.” Upon his return from the United Arab Emirates, Falcon grows bored with his limousine job and decides to step up to driving 18 wheeler tractor-trailers. He has a string of adventures in this endeavor over the next 18 months when the police leave a summons at his front door. Wanda and Bea, out of spite for having their civil suits dismissed, have filed felony criminal charges of indecent assault and battery. Ryan Leary, Falcon’s attorney, guides him through the legal process, culminating in a plea bargain. The sexual charges are dropped, and the felony charges are reduced to a misdemeanor assault and battery, with a one-year probation, during which time Falcon makes monthly visits to a psychotherapist, Mark Randolph. Mark realizes that Falcon was given a “bum deal” by the women of the Board and champions his cause. Wanda has managed to have her civil suit reopened due to the Board’s finding and hires a new attorney, Norman Beaudoin, after her long-time friend and attorney, Joyce DiGiacomo, is disbarred by the Bar Board of Overseers for unethical behavior on another case. Falcon is forced to file bankruptcy, which infuriates Wanda because it delays the civil trial. She convinces Attorney Beaudoin that Falcon must have “millions” hidden away because she knows he owned a private jet at one time. In a complicated set of legal maneuvers, it is revealed to Judge Levine of the Bankruptcy court that Wanda and her husband committed perjury on their own bankruptcy petition several years earlier when they failed to disclose that they had filed a civil suit against Falcon. The Judge rules that the matter first be turned over to Attorney Steven Powalski, the bankruptcy trustee who handled the Leblancs’ bankruptcy 6 years earlier, to see if he wants to reopen the case. In a twist of events, Powalski relays a solicitation of a $20,000 bribe through Falcon’s bankruptcy attorney, Dan Dimeless. If Falcon pays up, Powalski will refuse to reopen Wanda’s old bankruptcy case and Judge Levine has already ruled that the civil suit will not “abandon” to Wanda Leblanc and her husband, meaning they cannot go forward with the civil suit. When Falcon refuses to pay the bribe, Powalski reopens the old bankruptcy case which means the civil suit can proceed. In a another surprising twist of events, Falcon learns through his network of friends and supporters that Wanda has been caught shoplifting across state lines and has been evading arrest by using aliases and false addresses. He contacts a Sergeant Moreau, who is investigating the case, and relays the details to Ryan Leary. Ryan then decides to call Sergeant Moreau as a last minute addition to the witness list for the civil trial. When Attorney Beaudoin learns of his client’s criminal activities, he throws in the towel, and abandons the case. He signs a “Joint Stipulation of Dismissal with Prejudice” along with Ryan and the case is dismissed for the second time. Falcon is finally rid of Wanda after 10 years. Very quickly, Falcon’s frame of mind changes, and he decides that it is time to direct his energies to reactivating his medical license. As the book ends, Falcon establishes c

✏Fast and Loose in Dixie Book Summary : J. Madison Drake, a lieutenant in Colonel James Stewart, Jr’s 9th NJ Volunteers regiment of General Butler’s 18th Corps of the Union Army was outnumbered and captured by General Beauregard’s South Carolina troops on May 6,1864. Being a pre-war journalist, he used subsequently his descriptive ability recording amazing constant adventures of capture, imprisonment, and daring escape to eventual freedom. These were sterling examples of pluck, grit, determination and ingenuity.He tells many episodes of North Carolina people discontent with the Confederacy. Drake relates a warm respect for negroes that several time showed kindness and help with directions or food. Awesome mountain scenery is vividly portrayed.This book is emotionally intimate, socially engaging and compelling. Confined in prison camps at Richmond, Macon, Savannah, and Charleston, Drake wrote vividly of the hardship cruelty, and the devious ways of planning escape. Lighthearted camaraderie moments relieved the monotonous ordeal. Helpful prison friends were Captain James Belger and Captain James Parker who was an ardent tunnel digger in constant prison escape attempts. Finally in a prison train movement from Charleston to Columbia, SC, Drake, Captains Albert Grant- Wisconsin; J.E. Lewis- Connecticut and Harry H. Todd- New Jersey outwitted their guards, jumped off the train, and hid for a day in a swamp. They then started in October weather for Knoxville, 45 days distance, in a northwest direction, circuitous to avoid Cherokee Indian country. 22 days later they reached Hickory, North Carolina and here they met destiny. They were befriended by the Estes family. After previous many danger ordeals, days of hunger and stress they found help for their final push over steep snowy mountains to Union safety. Bill Estes was a Confederate deserter and had many such friends hidden in nearby caves. After several days of rest and good food, the four Union officers with 36 Confederate deserters set out up over mountainous heights. For the next 21 days their hardships of cold weather and constant adventure never ceased and expanded to armed conflict and constant evasion of guerilla terrorists. Knoxville was a welcome sight. They enjoyed a bath, new clothes and dined with General Gillem at Franklin House, telling their incredible journey and giving valuable information about the enemy. Drake was separated from his friends in his return to leave at his home, but after the war they enjoyed memories of a courageous journey.
