Anniversary Weekend

We had a busy Saturday, and a quiet Sunday.

While we were visiting mom Saturday morning, I got a call from my sister-in-law Diana. She and Mike had 2 extra tickets to the WSU/Creighton basketball game which started at 1pm. Corby and I agreed to go - we've both been wanting to attend a game this season. We picked up the tickets from Diana's mom, then went to Mike & Diana's house. Diana drove us to the game - and they also have a parking pass which allows them to park fairly close to the door. It's a good thing, as it was pretty darn chilly outside! WSU led the whole game, and ended up winning 70-58. It brought back a lot of memories from when I attended games in the early to mid 80's.

We went to Dillons on our way home, and then got cleaned up and went to Scotch and Sirloin for our 22nd anniversary dinner. That's the first time since we've been married that we've spent that kind of money going out to dinner. I guess after 22 years we felt like we deserved it! I got filet mignon and Corby got rib eye. The steaks were de-lish, and we had a great time!

Today has been our normal Sunday "catch-up" day. Corby cleaned the kitchen and bathrooms while I did laundry and paid bills, both ours and moms. We collected our recyclables, since our pick-up is this Tuesday. At least it got up in the 30's today. After the frigid temperatures of the last few days, it felt wonderful. It's supposed to get up in the 40's by mid-week - maybe I'll celebrate by wearing capri's to work! (NOT!)

I inclination not acquiesce in on it. I regard as nice post. Particularly the appellation attracted me to read the unscathed story.

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.
