The Eagles - Astounding!

The Eagles are THE best "old" band out there performing! As Glenn Frey said "Welcome to the Eagle's Assisted Living Tour". I knew it was going to be a great evening when they opened with "Seven Bridges Road". I went to the concert with my friend Susan, and this song was bittersweet for her. It was played at her husband's funeral last October. However, we sang along, and realized that Dennis was probably there with us in spirit!

They played so many hits that I can't even remember all of them. Hotel California, Take It To The Limit, The Best of My Love, Lyin' Eyes, Witchy Woman, Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, One of These Nights, Life in the Fast Lane, solo Don Henley hits: The Boys of Summer and Dirty Laundry; and Joe Walsh hits: Rocky Mountain Way and Life's Been Good. They also played quite a few songs off their latest CD, Long Road Out of Eden: I Don't Want to Hear Any More, Guilty of the Crime, and No More Walks in the Wood. They did two encores, which kind of seemed like three because they started to leave the stage after the second encore, and the lights went down. But soon they were back and singing Desperado. They performed for over three hours, and only took a 20 minute intermission. Their harmonies are still incredible. I'm amazed that I remembered all the lyrics to every one of their songs. I guess they are etched in my heart somehow.

There were a lot of people complaining about the majority of tickets being priced $175 - myself included. (I bought $85 tickets). But I have to say - they were truly worth that amount of money! So, if you have the chance to see the Eagles in concert, you MUST GO! It will be something you will remember for a very long time.

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.
