I went to the Reba / Kelly Clarkson concert Thursday night with my sister-in-law Diana and some friends. Had a wonderful time!

EXCELLENT CONCERT! I've enjoyed Reba's music over the years, but never been a huge fan. I do however love her TV show. What a surprise when the opening act ended up being Melissa Peterman - the stand-up comedian who played Barbara Jean on the REBA show. Oh my gosh, she was so funny!
I think some people thought that Kelly Clarkson would open the show; but instead it was Reba and Kelly on stage the whole 1 3/4 hours. I only knew a few of Kelly's songs (I don't watch American Idol); but was impressed with her vocal talent. I wasn't too impressed with her overlong jeans - and I mean 12 inches or more overlong; but that didn't hamper her moving around the stage. I saw in the Eagle's review the next day that she was also barefoot. Ouch! I think my favorite songs were "Because of You" the duet they recorded for Reba's Duets CD; Kelly's "Beautiful Disaster"; and Reba's "Does He Love You". There were no special effects, just lots of music. Reba looked great, and still puts on a great show.We weren't as close as I thought we were going to be. The seats ended up being about 14 rows up, but they were just to the left side of the stage. The big screen came in handy to see the close ups. As you can tell, I don't have a super-dooper zoom lens on my camera.
They came back and did an encore that had the crowd pumped. WOO HOO!I enjoyed the concert so much that I picked up Kelly's CDs @ Target today. I'm listening to the Breakaway CD right now. The My December CD is next. Then it will be Reba's #1's! Time to party!

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?

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…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

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.
