Saturday hangin'

We've had a good day. Started out the morning by visiting with mom. She was excited because my older brother Terry had picked her up last night and taken her out to his house. She got to see my sister-in-law's grandchildren, and had a great time. It's always nice to visit mom when she's in a good mood! Apparently my brother and his family had visited Tanganyika Wildlife Park and now mom wants to go there. I've been wanting to go there too, so we'll probably take mom in September when it cools off a bit!

We had to stop at Walmart too, and pick up a few things. I bought a new CD - Train's "Save Me, San Francisco". It is really good. But the CD I've really been enjoying is actually done by a group here in Wichita - the Mudbugs Cajun & Zydeco Band. One of their members, Jaime, works at the Eagle, and I got their CD from her on Thursday. It is awesome! Really makes you want to get up and dance!

We did our grocery shopping at Dillons, picking up their specials. Grocery shopping is a bit more expensive since Kaitlin is at home now, but that's okay. We're sure enjoying her. Kaleb headed home yesterday morning, and we enjoyed having him home for almost a week. I wish Brandon could have spent more than a couple days at home, but he's the big "intern" now at his summer job, so had to go in on Monday. I can't believe he's going to be a senior at K-State in just over a month!

My current book is Karen Kingsbury's Take 4 - Above the Line series. This is the final book in this series, and I'm really enjoying it. I should finish it later tonight or tomorrow. I almost picked up "To Kill a Mockingbird" today at Walmart. It's the 50th anniversary of the book. I do intend to buy it and read it again. I haven't read it since high school, though I do love the movie with Gregory Peck!

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.
