Life with a Sick Cat

We picked Sugar up from the vet today. We are $806 poorer! And she's still a sick cat. She's having problems with urination and diarrhea. She's taking 4 different kinds of meds. We have to keep her confined for at least 3 or 4 days. Right now we have her in Kaitlin's bedroom, but I think she'll soon be moving to the downstairs bathroom due to her "potty" problems. I'm already washing the sheets and blankets from Kaitlin's bed. UGH! If she doesn't get better in the next few days, we may be putting her to sleep. They really weren't sure about sending her home, but since it's a holiday weekend, we could NOT afford to let her stay 3 more days! One thing about this experience, Kaitlin is now thinking about becoming a veterinarian - again! She always wanted to be one, but a couple of years ago she decided she didn't want to spend 8 years in college. So she's starting K-State in the engineering program (and has an engineering scholarship) - but we'll see if she continues along that path. We talked to our vet - and she suggested that Kaitlin try to get a job at a vet clinic in Manhattan. That would give her some insight as to whether or not she's really interested in pursuing that career.

Needless to say, with the money we spent on Sugar today, we are trying to figure out a way to come up with some bucks. We have a 36" RCA TV for sale, a nice wood TV stand, and some Longaberger baskets & wrought iron, etc. If you know anyone who might want to buy any of these items, please let me know. (or if you want to donate to the "Sugar" fund....HA!)

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.
