No, I Didn't Hit Him in the Head

with a frying pan.These are the injuries Corby got at 4am this morning when he passed out in the bathroom. I called an ambulance, and he was transported to St. Francis. After running blood tests and an EKG, they determined it was not a heart attack. Actually, they couldn't really determine what caused it. This has happened before - twice - but it's been about 7 years since the last one. He was having bad cramps and was nauseous before passing out. They call it "vasovagal syncope" - where extreme pain or shock makes you pass out. After running the tests and calling our doctor, they released him around 7am to rest at home for a few days. He will be going to the doctor on Monday and they will probably set him up with a 24 or 48-hour heart monitor just to make sure his heart is beating correctly. Needless to say it freaks me out when this happens. Nothing like waking up from a deep sleep by hearing a LOUD crash! He's a little stiff and sore from hitting - well - we're not really sure what he hit, but his shoulder hurts as well as his head. Kaitlin went to the hospital with me - we actually beat the ambulance there!

Keep us in your prayers!

I sure hope Corby is doing better now! Sorry to hear about your exciting night. I can't help putting the last 2 posts together, I would sure be sick if I unloaded 2 trucks in frigid weather. It was -2 here in IN when we arrived and the night before it was -20! Cold trip so far, hope it warms up tomorrow.

Things happen in groups it seems. Hope Corby is on his way to recovery and NEVER has another one of those attacks. Anne

Well i am glad Linda called me before i saw the picture of Corby. Looks like he was in a fight with the bathroom and the bathroom won. Believe me i have had fights with the kitchen and ended up sitting on the floor with a carton of cottage cheese in one hand, at least i didn't drop the cottage cheese, ha ha. Sometimes we have to laugh about things that happen in our lives. Love ya Rhonda

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.
