Fidder on the Roof - Crown Uptown

I have always enjoyed the play "Fiddler on the Roof". Perhaps because I was an usher many years ago when my high school performed it. I think I saw it about 8 times while ushering, and it remains my favorite play years later. Briefly, it's about a family living in Anatevka, a small village in Russia and it takes place in 1905, on the eve of the Russian Revolutionary Period. Corby took me and the kids to see it last night, and my best friend Melody came along for the fun. The food was good and the play was wonderful. Rob Summers (Tevye) was great. Beth Wise played Golde, and she is a wonderful actress but I wasn't all that impressed with her singing voice. The rest of the cast was really good, and we thoroughly enjoyed the production. Surprisingly, Kaleb thought it was great, but Kaitlin was less impressed (and she has a musical background!). We had great seats, right down by the stage. I would recommend this play to anyone. However, if you want to see it, make reservations now. It ends on November 9.

Here is the girls side of the table:Now the guys side:
I am currently listening to the new Pink CD "Funhouse". I've only recently heard her music (where I have been the last few years?), but I've bought 2 of her CD's now and totally love both of them! Yes, that's a parental advisory sticker. I figure since the kids are 17 and 19 (almost 18 and 20) we can live with the lyrics. They're not all that bad anyway.

Current read is Lost Souls by Lisa Jackson. I'm about halfway through, and it's a pretty good read. It's based on a vampire theme, but the evil is strictly of this world rather than supernatural.

And if you haven't already voted (I did by mail) get out there Tuesday and vote. No matter who your choice is, you can't complain if you don't vote!!!!!

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.
The Nanny Arrangement

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.

Life Goes On

Life changed for me on July 17, 2017. I was laid off from the place I worked for almost 41 years.

I wasn't totally surprised. After all, layoffs have become the norm at newspapers. I was hoping I could make it at least another year.

But...alas...I didn't.

The Wichita Eagle has been my home and my life for so long. I started just after I turned 20 years old. Back in the good old days. What have I done over the years?

Job 1 - Classified Ad Taker
Job 2 - Classified Ad Support Staff
Job 3 - Ad Services Head Typist
Job 4 - Newspaper Layout Assistant
Job 5 - Production Director Secretary
Job 6 - VP/Operations Administrative Assistant
Job 7 - Executive Administrative Assistant and Layout Coordinator
Job 8 - Page Layout Manager
Job 9 - Prepress Manager
Job 10 - Advertising Customer Service Manager

There are other job duties in between all of these milestones. I dedicated my heart and soul to the Eagle. I started when I was so young. I met my husband while I worked there. I had all three of my child…
