  A week has passed and both Joe's red ink and my writing have flourished. And as we worked through The Ultimate Revenge, we continued to move through Italy and then into Switzerland to Locarno, where the International Film Festival was about to begin.

  After months of writing and after having completed the first twenty-six chapters of The Ultimate Revenge, it was time for a change of venue.

  Last week Joe and I celebrated thirty-four years together...okay, it was our twenty-sixth wedding anniversary, but you gals know that you have to add in the time invested! It was a beautiful sunny day, and as I headed off for an appointment, I noticed our new car was covered with an inch of dust. After [...]
