GO CLUBS!!! Our last hope.Love the poem.
Yikes!Can't wait to hear what happens. I missed the first few installments and have really enjoyed starting from the beginning.Just out of curiosity- any particular reason for the choice of Tessa?
Jim, Thanks!Marjorie - I'm glad you're enjoying the poem. I believe she chose Tessa because it was almost what we named her - so she can use the name as an alter-ego.
