Nothing New

Not much out of the ordinary going on around here. It was a crazy week at work, but nothing I can go into here. I had a busy Saturday. We started our day off as we usually do - visiting mom. She is still struggling with her cable TV. She has a hard time remembering channels. Kaitlin typed her up a guide with the channels we know she will watch the most often. I also showed her how to use her up & down channel arrows so she can just look at numerous channels to see if there is something she wants to watch. The nurses and aides help her too. After we left there, Kaleb got a haircut at Fantastic Sam's and we did our grocery shopping at Leeker's. It was double $1 coupon week. I love getting things for FREE! I also went to a Party Lite candle show yesterday afternoon. I am going to have a show - it will be a BINGO show at the Airport Hilton. Not sure how one of these works, but we reserve tables for our guests, who play bingo to win Party Lite prizes. I'll be finding out more about it soon.

Kaitlin and I went to Target this morning and picked up some necessities. We also had to go back to Leeker's to pick up a few things because she decided to make an apple pie. She's off work today, so she helped us clean house too! And of course, Corby watched KU cream Missouri!

My current book is "This Side of Heaven" by Karen Kingsbury. She is a wonderful Christian author, and I've read all her books.

I saw today where Kathleen Sebelius is Obama's pick for the Department of Health and Human Services. I think she is a great choice!Today's music is the latest 3 Doors Down CD...

And, last but not least, today's quote: "You must look within for value. You must look beyond for perspective." -- Unknown

Would you let me know the next time Leeker's plans to have double coupons? Maybe I can take advantage. ~ Anne

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.
