To my family . . .
my mother, Mary Ellen Joyce, the family Poet Laureate, whose love of the written word is infectious, and whose kindness is infinite.
my father, the late Bill Joyce, a gentleman jock, whose work ethic, honesty, fairness, and love of sport set the standard we all try to maintain.
my sister, the late Peggy Joyce, whose spirit is part of everything I do, every day.
my brothers, Bill, Pete and John, who ran beside me when I discarded my training wheels and still run beside me, steadfast and faithful, through thick and thin.
and finally, my lovely wife, Paulette, my best friend, who tolerated all the time I spent on “Jim’s Mistress,” that is, this book and the website that spawned it.
