Busy, Busy

Another busy week at work...had a couple of rough days at the beginning of the week, but I made it through. Kaitlin worked extra hours this week helping with a project, and due to her hard work earned a $50 gift card to Dillons! Way to go sweetie!

Corby is really looking forward to some cooler weather. He's been averaging 55 hours a week the last 3 weeks - and with no air conditioning in his warehouse - it's been pretty rough on him. I honestly don't know how he does it! I sweat just running around an air conditioned building at work!

Our outdoor cat, Sugar, is gone. She's been gone for about 10 days now. We don't know what happened to her, but she hasn't been gone even overnight since she was so sick last May. Kaitlin has been to the animal shelter as well as checking with our vet. So sad. She was a good cat.

Brandon is home for a few days. He came home last night, after calling me yesterday afternoon to say he was headed home. He has an eye doctor appt. Tuesday afternoon, but wasn't sure until yesterday that he could get a couple of days off work. He's been working on a big project during this internship. And since he'll continue to work there for the school year, he's going to work Wednesday through Friday, as those are his "lighter" class days. I'm so proud of him.

Kaitlin bought a new laptop today, so I inherited her old one. I'm not a big laptop fan, but it will be nice to use when traveling, or when needed upstairs since my desktop is in the basement.

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

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.

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...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
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?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
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.
