I ended the conversation wondering if it was the last time I'd speak to Daniel Brennan, a stand-up guy.

She may be out of the loop for a short time.
In this case, I didn't waste my time trying.

With time on my hands and not even a dog to talk to, I turned to the computer.

This time, Daniel Brennan was not available to inform us and it was just my bored web surfing that spotted the notice.
The time frame on this is all wrong.
There I'd try to get some time alone with my wife and mull through this train ride to oblivion.
Unlike me, Betsy was very familiar with the house having spent much time with Martha and Claire.
She noticed the nearly empty gin bottle for the first time.
She told me one time; she'd never cheated on Quinn.
I figured these abductions mirror some old case, and then there's a time break of a few years, like he was away.

The time, of day however, was precisely known.
We have a pretty close time frame of entrance and exit.
With her attention locked on Claire, I had time to fill in both women with what I'd learned.

At the house, she took her time going through some pictures.
From the time they broke up, she knew it could come to this if he were left to his own devices.
By the time he returned, she was waiting at her car.
She said it wasn't a good time, and it isn't.
He looked hurt and angry at the same time.
I have my time and I want you to have yours.
She was having a hard time of it, but she was breathing.
By the time he got in his car and left, Lisa was recovering.
Well, yes I do, but I don't know why I gave in to temptation at a time like that.
Lisa had time between when Howard left and Giddon arrived to call the police, but she didn't.
I knew he and Lisa had dated for a long time, and I knew they had a falling out, but I never thought he'd try to hurt her physically.
She told me she thought she loved Giddon, but at the same time she was having Howard investigate him.

Brandon rode ahead of her most of the time, dropping back beside her when they emerged from the forest.
He gazed down at her for a long time.
He kissed her again, softly this time.

It's been more than that for a long time - or am I only imagining things?
You take time to think about a date, but I want to take you out tomorrow to look at engagement rings.
What had she been thinking of all this time?
I let our stupid house rules stand between us for a long time, but I was the one who finally broke them.
I don't have time.
In the mean time, I guess I'll get some studying done.
Right now she didn't have time to think about that.
They wasted no time getting on the road and Brandon was driving fast.
She gripped the armrest as he passed two cars at a time.
I thought I had plenty of time.
Give her a little time to accept the idea.
What he needed was time.
Time to be with his mother, and time to get over his father's death.
They were silent for a long time on the way back.
All this time he had to remain strong for his mother.
When you went up to visit his parents, how much time did you spend with them, and how much time did you spend on the ranch?
Sure, they had spent more time wandering on the ranch, but that was only because Brandon wanted to get her alone.
Between finals and her job at the hospital, Adrienne rarely had time to think about it much, though.
Brandon is out at the north pasture, he'll be in any time for lunch.
I'll find out, anyway, but you could save us both some time if you tell me now.
Then they spend all their time at parties instead of studying.
Last time we talked, you sounded like you never wanted to see me again.
I've been in a rut for a long time.
From now on I'm going to get a new map every time there's a change.
She had to decline the last trip because it coincided with her monthly cycle - and this trip was cutting the time close.
Since each wagon had three teams of horses, that could become time consuming - and time was their enemy.
He might show up any time to claim the ranch.
It brought her closer to the time when she could go back to the ranch.
Who are you looking for this time?
Yes, but I don't have time.
Pete usually had a fire going by the time she was ready to fix breakfast.
I'll see if I can find a deer next time.
Naw, it was burned to a crisp by the time I uncovered it.
By the time Bordeaux returned with the cut up snakes, she had lard sizzling in a large skillet.
You've been spending enough time with my mules.
Each day brought them closer to the time he would be riding away permanently.
Bordeaux was the closest thing she'd had to a friend in a long time... other than Pete, of course.
Maybe it was time to go home.
If she left from Ashley, she would arrive in time to plant a garden at the ranch.
Now that they were all together, it would be a good time to tell them.
I spent enough time out here a few years ago.
By the time she reached the wagon, the desert was bathed in moonlight.
Again she lashed out with the whip - this time in earnest.
For a long time she lay wide awake with her eyes closed.
He's not the kind to leave at a time like this.
She readied supper, careful to spend as little time in the ring of firelight as possible.
By the time the wagons were fully engulfed in flames, they had traveled far enough to be out of the firelight.
For the first time, Cassie realized what a target they had been around the fire at night.
It was barely enough to water a mule at a time.
The morning was getting hot by the time they managed to water the mules and fill their canteens.
This is the last water hole for a long time.
For the first time she thought about the fact that he had no commitment to them at all, yet he had risked his life for them.
I need time to think about it.
They must have been attacked some time during the night.
It takes time we don't have, it won't fool the Indians, and you're raising dust they might see.
No, there isn't time.
How could anyone be right 100% of the time?
They traveled until she lost track of time.
It took too much effort to look up at the sun to measure time.
If the Indians were renegades, surely they wouldn't want to take the time to track only two people - not with the cavalry on their trail.
They took their time, squatting on the dusty ground, letting minutes pass between bits of conversation.
Until now, there hadn't been much time.
There simply wasn't enough time to get to know him better.
The desert and lava fields behind them, they made good time.
We'd have waited for you, but we was outnumbered three to one and didn't have time to look for you.
By the time we were finished it was dark and the sand was blowing so bad we might have got lost, so we stayed in the cave until it let up.
Their food arrived about the same time as Pete and Bordeaux.
There was no quiet time of musing.
This was one time she couldn't ride the fence.
It was time to put the past where it belonged.
Ashley was growing bigger every time she saw it.
I'll make it different this time.
This might be the last time we see each other.
There was an old treadle sewing machine with carved drawers and even a grandfathers' clock, stating the permanent time of three p.m.
This was one place Cade obviously didn't spend much time.
I'm the only human they see most of the time, and I represent no harm to them.
We could have stopped any time.
The next time she talked to Mary, she said as much.
Hopefully he had no idea how her heart beat double time occasionally at the strangest things.
It wasn't the first time she had done so, but this morning she had run across some curtains and rugs in the attic.
Why did he do that every time he disagreed with her?
I don't spend that much time in the house anyway.
No, that should be plenty of time.
This might be a good time to ask.
I saw you up there one time.
It all happened so fast that she didn't have time to think, only to cling to the one solid thing she could find - Cade.
It was time to pack up and get out - as soon as the visit from his sister was over.
In her spare time she read "The Lonely Hills."
I'm trying to get everything caught up so I can spend a little time with Claudette.
It's about time he did something with this old house.
This time they were on the balcony, gazing into the night, his arm around her waist.
Now that was a good example of her imagination working over time.
What time would Cade want to get up this morning?
She caught her breath, realizing for the first time that he was actually an attractive man.
Do you realize that's the first time I've ever seen you smile?
Well, he did spend a lot of time with his mother.
If she was, she had picked a poor time.
This time there would be no holding back.
For a long time he simply stood there, and when he finally spoke, his voice was controlled.
It was the first time you've ever been anything with me but a perfect gentleman.
I was so angry, and Claudette picked the worst time to...
By the time she reached the top of the stairs, tiny flecks of light were dancing across her vision.
You've been working for me for almost three months now and this is the first time I've ever seen you sick.
That and the time when I was trying to get the salt shaker from behind the stove.
By the time she brought lunch and a blanket down, he had a large area cleared under the cottonwood tree.
Wasting no time, she jabbed her left foot in the stirrup and lifted her hand to be swallowed in his.
It was that time of year.
Now was the time.
Only this time his lips left hers and wandered to her neck, sending her heartbeat into frenzy.
Some time later she awoke in his arms.
The fire flickered feebly, its passion curbed by time as well.
She knew that at the time, so why had she pushed reason aside?
That was all it took, providing it was the right time.
And this could be exactly the right time.
After all, even if it was the right time, it didn't mean pregnancy was inevitable.
It was the first time she saw him break down and indulge in a heart felt smile.
This time there was no hesitation, no rush.
This was the last time.
But what we do with our time after work is strictly between the two of us.
It was time to pack.
But after the first time, I should have known.
Mary was silent a long time and then she finally spoke.
This time they started out heading west, into a maze of arroyos and low brush.
No wonder Cade was gone all the time.
Sometimes I do, but most of the time it's simply impractical.
He didn't have the time.
Yet he had found the time to invite her on this ride.
No, I searched a long time before I found each one and I paid dearly.
Whether that was a good or bad thing she couldn't guess, and she didn't have time to ask.
Was this the same creek they had stopped to eat lunch beside that first time?
If that wasn't an option, it was time to leave.
But as time progressed, his obvious reluctance to propose marriage presented a far more difficult problem.
Mary showed up one morning in time to witness that fact.
It was time to grow up and consider the needs of the baby.
Every time I found a way to lead into it, you came up with something else.
Now was the time to clear the air, and there was one thing about all this that didn't make sense.
His name came easily to her lips this time.
But it was a good hot meal that brought me into the diner the first time.
And all the time she thought she was the only one with the torrid thoughts.
By the time Claudette showed up, I knew for sure.
I think it's about time to move him from his cradle to his crib.
You've had the nursery ready for him a long time.
The second time was when she married Quinn LeBlanc.
I will not be trapped this time.
We started our lovemaking slowly, allowing the others in nearby bedrooms time to fall asleep.
We were both soaked by the time we reached him.
