Senior Pictures

We spent most of the afternoon with my friend, Milt, in downtown Wichita. That's because Milt was taking Kaleb and Kaitlin's senior pictures. Yes, I waited this long intentionally. Neither one of them had a desire to go into a studio and have their picture taken, so we opted for the outdoor, natural approach. Milt took Brandon's senior pictures too, so I'm anxious to see the pictures from today. Our biggest enemy was the ferocious wind - gusting upwards of 30-40mph. We wandered the warehouse district downtown, and whenever we could find a spot out of the wind, we went for it. Kaitlin fought the wind with her hair all day, but I think Milt got some great pictures. He's got an eye for photography, though he just does it on the side. Having worked with me for about 12 or 13 years, he left several years ago to be the marketing manager for the local Harley Davidson dealership. Thanks Milt for a fun afternoon, even though I am still picking sand out of my teeth. And rest assured folks, I will be posting some pictures as soon as we get them!

I've got laundry started, and tomorrow I get to work filling out mom's application for Medicaid. Wish me luck, as I have to hunt for a LOT of paperwork - not even sure where it all is. I have a feeling Corby and I will be cleaning out the garage in the process!

I also want to say HI to my Uncle Louie - in St. Louis. He turns 85 on Monday. Louie is my dad's oldest brother, and a very special man. He's the only sibling left in my dad's family. They had a sister who died in her early 20's (she was gone before any of us kids were born); my dad died in 1994, and their youngest brother, Gerald died in the late 90's. Louie's health has been declining the last year or two, but he's still hanging in there. For 15 years we had annual family reunions, but we haven't had one since 2006, due to mom and Louie's health. We had some great times with our cousins and their families. I sure miss seeing them every year! HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNCLE LOUIE!

Can't wait to see the pictures. I know they'll be good - both the subjects and the photographer are awesome! Hope you can have some time to relax after getting your Mom's paperwork done. ~ Anne

I got my senior pictures the summer before my senior year. What pictures did they use for the yearbook?

they had pictures taken at school for the yearbook. Neither one of them even wanted to buy the yearbook because they do such a lousy job on them.

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

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.

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...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
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?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
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…
