Baby Boy goes home

We enjoyed our 24+ hours w/Kaleb. Had a good visit yesterday. Corby fixed ham & beans for dinner and then Kaleb went out with some friends later in the evening. I fixed Cinnamon Bits for breakfast (see below for recipe). We went to Sam's to pick up cat & dog food, and pick up a few things for Kaleb to take back. He got some homework done this afternoon, and then we watched "Thunderbolt & Lightfoot" with Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges. It's an old movie (from 1974) but Kaleb is on a Clint Eastwood kick ever since seeing Gran Torino. We enjoyed it. After eating some leftovers for dinner, Kaleb headed home. Again, I think it's harder to say goodbye from home. He made it home safely and that's the most important things...

a few pics before he left...gonna miss you son...come back soon!

CINNAMON BITS (serves 6)
Take 3 cans regular sized biscuits (not grands) and cut each biscuit into four pieces. Melt 1 to 1 1/2 sticks butter in the microwave and pour into 9x13 cake pan. Take cut-up biscuits and roll over in the butter so both sides are buttered. Sprinkle cinnamon - however much you like - on the biscuits, and bake according to directions on biscuit can. I usually bake them 2-3 minutes longer than suggested because I like mine with a little bit of crunch on the bottom. While the cinnamon bits are baking, mix powdered sugar and evaporated milk (NOT sweetened condensed milk). You can make however much icing you'd like - and make it just a little bit runny. Drizzle the icing over warm biscuits and EAT! VERY easy recipe that I got from the mother of a friend of mine when I was about 8 years old!

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.
