Life with Kids Again...

The boys both came home last night for spring break -- Kaleb, via Lawrence, where he picked a friend up at KU. She lives near us here in Park City, and she's without a car right now, so he did the noble thing and gave her a ride home. Brandon -- via Junction City, where he dropped one of their roommates off so he could catch a bus to Minnesota where he lives. Kaitlin will be home tomorrow around noon because she had to work today. We watched the K-State / Baylor game when they got home. Here are the guys watching the game:

Today was spent running around...went to visit mom, stopped at Verizon so Brandon could buy a new phone; Corby ran to Bed, Bath & Beyond while we were in Verizon to buy part of Kaitlin's birthday present, stopped at Michael's, Target and then Dillons. We were all tired of shopping by the time we got home.

The boy's friend Brady came over tonight to watch the KU / K-State basketball game. KU ended up winning the Big 12 Championship game. Congrats to them, tho Brady, the boys and I were rooting for the Wildcats...

I bought a new purse at Kohl's this week.

I am not a big purse freak. In fact, I carry one for a year or two until it wears out, and then buy a new one. But I got a good deal on this one. It was already on sale, and I got another 20% off. Hope it lasts for a while!

Have my Powerball tickets in hand, hoping to win that $200 million dollar purse tonight! Wish me luck!

Looking forward to a couple of days vacation while the kids are here. I go back to work on Wednesday, which is when Brandon has to go back to work. The twins will be here until Sunday. We are having a family birthday celebration with my family tomorrow - celebrating the twins 19th birthday which is Monday, and my sister-in-law's birthday which is on St. Patty's day. I won't mention her age. LOL! We're meeting at On The Border (west) and I know we'll have a great time. Wish my niece, Lenore & her hubby Daniel could be here, as well as my nephews Eric & Ryan. Someday we will ALL be together as a family! Kind of hard with Lenore and Daniel in Germany, and Eric and his family in California.

Got a good offer from Mystery Guild today, so of course I signed up! Gotta have those books coming in all the time, voracious reader that I am!
Oh, and I bought tickets this week to the REO Speedwagon / Pat Benatar concert at Intrust Bank Arena in July. Got 6th row on the floor! YIPPEE! I've seen REO numerous times, but have never seen Pat. Really looking forward to it!

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.
