The TV Shuffle

Just bought a big-screened TV from some friends of ours. The best part is - they delivered it to us tonight. However, we have to do the TV shuffle before we can get it in our basement. The kids all have TV for their bedrooms next fall in Manhattan - but they wanted one for their living room - where they can watch movies, etc. So when our friends told us about this big screen, the kids decided to buy our 36" TV for their living room. However, we're going to have to store it in the garage until August. Right now the big screen is out there, awaiting it's new home in our basement. I have a feeling Corby will be doing the "shuffle" soon. He's anxious to get that 61" hooked up!

What beautiful weather in Wichita today! Haven't heard the official high, but it's 68 degrees at 8pm, so I'm guessing at least the low 70's. Tomorrow it's supposed to get in the 70's too and then 83 or higher on Wednesday! I LOVE THIS WEATHER!

Corby got the yard mowed, and we are getting ready to plant some flowers out front. Hope there are some good sales this weekend!

Current book: Marie Osmond's "Might As Well Laugh About It Now". The book is "blips" of her life, and very good! As a long-time Osmond fan, I'm learning a lot!

Music today: Not music really, but the kids have comedian Jim Gaffigan's new CD and I listened to it on the way to and from work today. Quite funny!

And a quote for this gorgeous Monday: "Friends color lives like flowers on a vine." -- Unknown

The Nanny Arrangement
by Rachel Harris
May 22, 2017

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.

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

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.
