I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my wonderful beta, Judy, for her skills in tidying up my work, and my beloved granddaughter, Marika, for her evocative banner.  I love you girls.

I would also like to add one special note for this story.  I have been under the mistaken impression for years that Brian was Joan's firstborn.  Thankfully, many of you have straightened me out on this point. However, it is integral to this story that Brian is the firstborn, so please indulge my twist on this one canon issue.  Thank you.
