Sick Kitty

Poor Sugar...she is getting better day by day, but she is still confined in the downstairs bathroom. And let me tell you, sharing one bathroom with 3 adult children (well, they THINK they're adults) is a pain in the tush. We could use the bathroom downstairs, but it's fairly small, and with a litter box, food bowls and a sick cat, we've opted to share the upstairs one.

She's taking lots of medication.Kaitlin giving her medsShe's not too thrilled with us.Corby talked to the vet today. Hopefully we'll be able to let her back outside in the next day or two. After tomorrow she will have one pill twice a day. We're not sure she will hang around to get those pills, but we're going to have to let her go soon.

The kids and I (and a friend of Brandon's) are headed to KC for the weekend. We will leave early Saturday morning and drop the boys off at Rockfest - a big outdoors concert at the Liberty Memorial. Kaitlin and I will hang out, shop, swim at the hotel, etc., while they are at the concert. Then we are going to the Royals game on Sunday. Thank goodness the hotel and game were paid for before our huge expense for the cat! Brandon has an extra ticket for Rockfest - one of his friends is unable to go. That means we have an extra ticket to the game. Corby was thinking about going with us, but he's decided to stay home and make sure Sugar gets her meds, etc. What a guy! Actually, I think he doesn't want to shop with me and Kaitlin. HA!

Getting some laundry done tonight and we'll do grocery shopping tonight since I'll be gone all weekend. I took Monday off to recuperate!

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.
