Hi Gang, I’m happy to report that a story begun right here and with your comments and boost, I wrote Young at Heart, just released last week and featured on USA Today, the second in my series of Mature Romance/Suspense under the umbrella title The Beginning. . .not The End. Happy dance and champagne for everyone. I hope you recall the beginning.
I’ve tried all my tricks to get his attention and today might be my last chance. Known as Queen of the quip in the out-patient clinic at Helen Hayes Rehabilitation Hospital, I knew how to make people laugh. This guy, the saddest looking Irish face I’d seen since I had to pick one out of a line-up, kept to himself never speaking to anyone except Eddy Martin, the physical therapist we shared. I wanted to share more with this stand offish private guy because something about him appealed to me.
Physical Therapy was an unlikely place for dating possibilities, the slightly sanitized scent in the huge room with professionals in white uniforms everywhere. Yet I love men and they were here with me and a bunch of other women although some of the men were too young. I’m in my seventies in good shape before the surgery and determined to return to normality. This widow wants companionship and loving, not an affair.
