Rascal Flatts and more...

Kaitlin and I went to the Rascal Flatts concert at Intrust Bank Arena Thursday night. This has become a mother/daughter tradition...

I must say, of all their concerts I've seen, this was probably the best one. The sound was wonderful, and we ended up with SECOND row seats.

First up was Chris Young, he wasn't on long, but I enjoyed him.

Second up was Kellie Pickler. I've liked a few of her songs, and she sounded good too.

Then came RF - lead singer Gary LeVox, along with JoeDoe Rooney (from Picher, Oklahoma) and Kaitlin's favorite - Jay DeMarcus.

I only took a few pictures because my batteries were about dead, but Kaitlin took over 200 photos! She narrowed them down to about 160. Here are some of the best:

Kaleb came home on Friday and went camping with some friends. He was back late yesterday afternoon, so we went out to Abuelo's for dinner:

and of course I had to have a yummy margarita

Today I'm busy doing my normal Sunday chores - paying bills and doing laundry. We went to Sam's to pick up a few things and spent over $100. You can't go to Sam's and spend less than that - at least WE can't!

she's in the fan club and they only sell 100 tix per show. She was online the minute they became available, but you never know where your seats are because you can't pick them up until the evening of the concert. She was pretty thrilled!

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.
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?

Job 1 - Classified Ad Taker
Job 2 - Classified Ad Support Staff
Job 3 - Ad Services Head Typist
Job 4 - Newspaper Layout Assistant
Job 5 - Production Director Secretary
Job 6 - VP/Operations Administrative Assistant
Job 7 - Executive Administrative Assistant and Layout Coordinator
Job 8 - Page Layout Manager
Job 9 - Prepress Manager
Job 10 - Advertising Customer Service Manager

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…
