Hail Chris!

I told Chris, whose last day was today (her position was eliminated-UGH!) that I was going to name this post HAIL CHRIS! Kind of a dual post about the darn hail we had last night and Chris herself. I salute Chris - for her friendship, for her dedication to her job (not that she was recognized for this!), and for her ability to see the light at the end of her tunnel.

Okay, here's the hail. Not a ton of it, but from pea to marble size.
See this marble on the post?And here's my "Chris, this isn't goodbye" photo. We've already made lunch plans, and party plans! While she will be looking for a new job, she's not sitting around on her tush. She's going on a vacation soon with her sister's family, and getting to visit several states she hasn't seen before. She is down to just a few states left to visit before she can say she's visited all 50 states! That's pretty amazing. Offhand I think I've been to about 20-22 states, so Chris definitely has me beat. She's also got some things she wants to get done around her house. Chris, you will be missed as a co-worker, but our friendship remains! You rock!

Corby and I are veggin' tonight. It's been a long week. I have Monday and Tuesday off, and I plan on enjoying it! We are going to the Beatles Symphony at Century II tomorrow night with my friend, Melody. Looking forward to that.

Have a great weekend everybody! Hopefully this wind will die down and we won't feel like we're eating dirt when we go outside!

I second that - hail Chris! She is certainly turning lemons into lemonade. I have always wanted to pursue the 50 states thing, but always seem to stay home...hmmmm.
Chris said…
Thank you, Linda, for all the kind words. As I sit at home on a Monday morning sipping coffee and catching up on blog seems pretty good. And yes, I have been to Hawaii, Cowgirl.

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.
