Friends

I met my friend, Chelsy, for lunch today. Those of you who work at the Eagle should remember Chelsy. She was our production commercial graphic artist. She is now working for The Golf Warehouse. Here is the cover she designed for their latest catalog.And here is a Nike insert with Tiger Woods that she designed for the center of the catalog: She told me she originally designed this one with another picture of Tiger to the left, faded behind the copy. When she sent it off for approval, she found out that Tiger doesn't allow any print to cover his face, so she had to remove that picture. I guess some celebrities have specific ideas on using their photos in advertising.

Anyway, had a good visit with Chelsy. She loves her new job. We talked about little Zoey, who is now almost 19 months old. She sounds like a very independent little girl. I intended to take a picture of me and Chelsy, and even had my camera with me, but we were so busy gabbing I forgot!

Corby fixed some yummy stew for dinner last night, so we had leftovers tonight. He ended up snoozing in his recliner this evening, and used a comforter that we brought home from Charles' house. I washed it last night, and he put it in the dryer to warm it up a bit, and then covered himself up. Muffin gave him about 5 seconds to get covered up, and then made her presence known.Music of the day: CHRISTMAS MUSIC! Been listening to B-98FM, who play nothing but Christmas music between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

REVIEW - Before and Again by Barbara Delinsky

4 Stars
St. Martin's Press
Release date: June 26, 2018

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've been reading Delinksy's books for years, and she's always an author I can count on for a good read. This book is no exception. I did find it a little harder to get into than previous books, it seemed a bit disjointed at first. Thus 4 stars instead of 5.

The book is about Mackenzie Cooper, who moved to a small town to lose herself and get away from a tragic occurrence in her life. It delves deeply into the despair of losing a child (this happens at the very beginning so it's not a spoiler) and what happens between the spouses who are having trouble communicating their pain. It also deals with Mackenzie's mother and brother, and their estrangement.

Suddenly, Mackenzie's ex-husband appears, in HER town, HER haven. Can they find their way back together, or is the past too painful to forget?

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

The Osmonds on PBS

I've never hidden my obsession with the Osmonds. Donny and his oldest performing brother, Alan, were my favorites. While "flipping" channels tonight around 7pm, Corby came across the Osmonds 50th Anniversary concert in Las Vegas on PBS. It was filmed last August. Can you believe the oldest brothers have been performing for 50 years? I can tell you exactly how old every Osmond brother is. They are all 2 years apart, Alan is 58, Wayne is 56, Merrill is 54, Jay is 52 and Donny is a year younger than me. He turned 50 in December. (Guess that tells everybody how old I am, huh?). Marie is 48, and oops, I'm not sure how old "baby" Jimmy is.
I was jamming to all those 70's songs: Double Lovin', One Bad Apple, Puppy Love, Down by the Lazy River, Yo-Yo, Love Me For a Reason, Crazy Horses, The Proud One, Let Me In, and the very best harmony ever - He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother! What a performance! Alan has MS now, so doesn't perform much, but he w…
