I apologize for all of the cat/kitty pictures, but I can't help it...aren't they adorable?They both love to crash in the window in the basement...The only way they can reach the window is from my desk. We have a "no lag" rule. If they jump on my desk, they must immediately jump into the window. They follow the rules when I'm here, but who knows what they do when I'm gone?

It's been a STRANGE week at work. We received an e-mail late Tuesday afternoon that the VP of Operations was leaving to pursue other options. As a member of the Operations group, I was surprised. He had been off on personal leave for a couple of weeks, but it was an unexpected departure. One of the guys who started a copy boy in the newsroom and worked there into his 7o's? - used to say "I've seen 'em come, and I've seen 'em go." Well - I'm at that point now. I'll celebrate my 32nd anniversary in November (if I make it that long) and I'm beginning to feel like ol' Wayne! The newspaper business is in dire straits right now!

Mom's cataract surgery went well on Tuesday. My sister took her yesterday morning for a quick check, and they said the eye was healing well. We are hoping to get her some of those "magnifying" glasses at Walmart to tide her over until they get her fitted for new glasses. The doctor said those might help her see better in the interim. I hope so as she really struggles to see. The nursing home is having a LUAU this Saturday afternoon, so we are going to go party!!!!

My current book is Lady Killer by Lisa Scottoline. It's hooked me - I hope to finish it tonight or tomorrow.

Today's music: Montgomery Gentry's new CD. VERY GOOD!

And a quote to end the post - fittingly about twins since this is their senior year:
" Twins...
Like branches on a tree, we grow in different directions,
yet our roots remain as one.
Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other."

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.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.
