I'm Sad, But Life Goes On

Brandon just left to head back to Manhattan. I'm sad, but having your almost 20-year-old son spread his wings is a good feeling too! I'm so proud of Brandon. Though finding money for college has been a difficult road, he's persevered and will soon finish his sophomore year. He's a bright, warm, funny young man - and for those of you who know him - a bit on the shy side. I'm happy to say he has made many friends at K-State. He's also a good friend to Owen, a friend from grade school and Brady, a friend from middle school - who both live in Wichita. He's a good friend to his brother, Kaleb, and to his sister, Kaitlin. He's a great son to me and Corby! We have so enjoyed having him home for just over a week for spring break. We've watched movies, gone to the zoo, gone out to eat, celebrated the twins birthdays and played numerous games (and no, I didn't win any of them!). I'm going to miss him, but we will see him again on May 8th when he will be home for the weekend before his finals.

Godspeed son! Dad and I love you very much!

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…
