February Book List and...

I read 9 books in February...

Shelter Me by Juliette Fay
Midnight Sons, Vol. 1 by Debbie Macomber
Show No Fear by Perri O'Shaughnessy
Final Justice by Fern Michaels
Virgin River by Robyn Carr
Shelter Mountain by Robyn Carr
Whispering Rock by Robyn Carr
Run For Your Life by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge
While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky

I'm on a Robyn Carr kick. I hadn't read any of her books until I started her Virgin River series. I found out about them from one of the book reviewer blogs that I read. I'm between books right now and have about 20 (more like 60 or 70) to choose from. I think I'll put 5 in a pile, shut my eyes and pick one.

Had lunch today with some co-workers and former co-workers at Emerson Biggin's.

Here's Ronnie, Candi and Jennifer.
Here's Becky, Shenny and Sach.Here's Kay, Vickie and Darci.It was great seeing my former co-workers. They are all doing well.

Here's Abby's latest pose. For some reason, she likes sitting in the top basket of a wrought iron 3-tier rack I have. The plastic protector actually belongs to another basket, but she squeezes herself in there.And since I'm posting a picture of Abby, I must also post one of Muffin. If you look close enough you can see her tongue - she was digging the ice cream!Today's music was Kenny Loggin's Greatest Hits. It's been a long time since I listened to it. Now I can't quit singing Footloose!

I'll end with a quote: "To have a good friend is the purest of all God's gifts." -- Frances Farmer

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…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS
by ALLISON BRENNAN
St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016
5 STARS

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.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

5 STARS
Need to Know
Karen Cleveland
Ballantine Books
RELEASE DATE: 1/23/2018

Thanks to NetGalley for the chance to read this book by Karen Cleveland.

Do books about the possibility of Russian sleeper cells in the US interest you? How about a CIA analyst who gets herself involved in a major "situation"?

Need to Know kept me on the edge of my seat, from the first paragraph to the very last. I didn't want to put it down, but when I had to, all I did was think about it. I explained what was going on to my husband, who is not a reader. Even he was intrigued. If you like fast-paced, punch-you-in-the-face kind of action, this book is for you.

Very highly recommend!
