Summer is the time for vacations, picnics on the beach and reruns on the telly. For me it’s a time to meet a deadline in July for my third novel in my series entitled AS ONE MUST ONE CAN. Many thanks to those of you who responded to my plea for your favorite reruns.

This story is from the week of 12 October 2012 when Madison was still Chief Fictioneer.
Summer 1969, an American sailor stationed in Greece, I went on leave to Santorini.
In Pyrgos, I met sable-eyed Melina.
We drank each other. Her fragrant breasts welcomed me home.
“Marry me,” I whispered.
After that I never saw her again.
Summer 2010, I returned to Pyrgos.
On the street I stopped a silver-haired woman. “Melina Dimitri? Do you know her?”
“I love her.”
“Impossible! She was my great-grandmother. Died in childbirth in 1869. Here she is with my great-grandfather.”
When the woman flipped out an old photograph I gasped at the youthful images of Melina and…me.
