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

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.
The Nanny Arrangement

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.

Life Goes On

Life changed for me on July 17, 2017. I was laid off from the place I worked for almost 41 years.

I wasn't totally surprised. After all, layoffs have become the norm at newspapers. I was hoping I could make it at least another year.

But...alas...I didn't.

The Wichita Eagle has been my home and my life for so long. I started just after I turned 20 years old. Back in the good old days. What have I done over the years?

There are other job duties in between all of these milestones. I dedicated my heart and soul to the Eagle. I started when I was so young. I met my husband while I worked there. I had all three of my child…
