No pics today

Mom had an eye doctor appointment this afternoon, but I got a call from the nursing home this morning saying she didn't feel well and wanted me to cancel the appointment. So, I rescheduled for the end of January. It's been a quiet, relaxing day at our house.

Kaleb has been having computer problems, so he took his hard drive to Best Buy to have the "Geek Squad" give him the lowdown on what's wrong. He should know in the next few days. Kaitlin and Brandon went to Taco Bueno for lunch. I am not impressed with TB, so they went by themselves. Corby worked on Brandon's car, fixing the headlight, the hood latch and the manifold.  Everything is good with his car now. I'm working on my 5th load of laundry for today, after doing ALL the laundry on Sunday. We definitely have more with all the kids home for the holidays.


We also made a run to Leeker's to pick up some milk and cat litter. Yes, it's been a quiet day. Now we are ready to watch two basketball games - K-State and WSU. We'll be flipping the channels back and forth watching both games....

My current read: Mr. and Miss Anonymous by Fern Michaels. I'm hoping to finish it tonight.

Back to work tomorrow, but at least I only have to work 2 days this week! YIPPEE!!!! Also, we are hoping to get pre-approved for a new car, and hope to test drive a Suzuki SX4 Sport tomorrow night.

OK dear friend, i am going to pretend i didn't read that part about you not liking Taco Bueno. It is the single greatest fast food mexican on the planet. Luckily, your good features way outweigh that one tiny fault! Glad your kiddos are getting some quality time with you momma! Enjoy it!

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…

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.
