Fiorella must be entering her second childhood-she's skinned her knee like when she was a kid and always had skinned knees. Then, suddenly, when she turned five, she didn't.
Fio's experience with the scamming handyman reminds her of her experience with a scamming yardman several years ago. The good thing is that she now has a really great yardman and, after she told her story to the septic tank man, he gave her the name of a dependable handyman whom he has known for years. And, speaking of the septic tank man, he too, is dependable.
After many failed attempts at entering the Romance Writer's of America's published author contest, Fio finally pulled a PDF off the site and faxed it to Houston, Wish her well.
