[B]Hello, Mary. I'm sorry to tell you, but the series is definitely ended. Wish it weren't so, but 'tis.

Sorry to hear it--it's the finale for so many old friends. Now I'm curious: FFM ends, after all, with the two of them metaphorically sailing into the sunset together. But a note at the end said you were working on another installment. At the time you were writing it, did you know/suspect that the series was ending?
