There is a reason I don't watch much TV. Whenever I find a show I like, the network cancels it. I heard today that SHARK won't be back next season. CRAP! It's one of my favorite shows. I love to watch James Woods chewing up the scenery. I've mentioned many a time that I am not a reality show watcher. I know a bunch of you are, but I guess I'm showing my age, because I don't get into any of them. (Sorry Survivor fans). Give me CSI, CSI Miami or Criminal Minds any day.

I just finished reading Debbie Macomber's book TWENTY WISHES. What a great book! It has recurring characters from some of her previous books, but it's basically a story about women who are dealing with changes in their lives, and they start making a TWENTY WISHES list. It's not something they think about lightly. I can probably come up with twenty wishes, but I haven't had much time to ponder what my list would include. I will start with 3 wishes: 1) to travel to Australia; 2) lose weight and 3) spend as much time as possible with the twins before they head off the college in the fall of '09.

I am listening to the soundtrack from the Barbra Streisand movie "A Star is Born". What a great soundtrack! I know the movie was not a critic favorite, but it's one of my favorite movies of all time. I just got the DVD of the movie too, so I can see a movie night in the near future. I also bought the DVD of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with the Bee Gees, Steve Martin, George Burns, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Earth, Wind & Fire. Can't wait to watch it again after all these years! Man, am I old!!!!!

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.
