Sad News

Sad news this Uncle Louie passed away this afternoon. I have many great memories of him, my Aunt Coney (who passed away the same year as my dad-1994) and my cousins: Marsha, Diana, June, Chris and Robert. When we were kids, the highlight of our summer was when our St. Louis relatives would visit. When my sister, Rhonda and I were teens, there were several summers that we went back to St. Louis with them for a visit. Uncle Louie was a wonderful man. He was very laid-back and nothing us kids did ever got him riled up. His career was as a graphic artist, but he was an awesome artist and I am proud to have one of his paintings hanging in my basement. Up until his health, and my mom's health, got bad a few years ago, we got together with our St. Louis family every summer for a reunion. About 5 years ago, Uncle Louie gave me and my siblings one of his paintings. Needless to say, mine is cherished and very special to me.

My brother Terry and I are planning to go to his funeral, but we are waiting to hear tomorrow the exact date and time.

Uncle Louie - you will be greatly missed. Please say HI to Dad, Aunt Coney, Uncle Gerald and Grandma and Grandpa. WE LOVE YOU! RIP!

My dad called me last night and told me he wasn't doing well. Sorry to hear of his passing. How is grandma taking it? Can she go with you to the funeral?

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…
The Nanny Arrangement
by Rachel Harris

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.
