for the boys' room. The boys have been sleeping on air mattresses and couches since they left for college. We finally broke down and bought new beds and bedding!

Kaitlin loves helping her dad put together things, so they had fun this morning.

Kaleb will be home early this evening for Thanksgiving week. He originally planned on coming Tuesday afternoon after work, but managed to get Monday and Tuesday off too.

Brandon will be here sometime on Wednesday. He's working on a big project at work, and it just depends on when they get it done. Hopefully he'll be here Wednesday afternoon.

My best friend, Melody, took me to the .38 Special concert Friday night at Hartman Arena.

We danced the night away and had a great time. It was pretty late when we got home, so she crashed at our house before heading home yesterday morning.

Yesterday was another busy day for us. We grabbed breakfast at McDonald's drive-thru and then headed out to visit mom. She was in a good mood and we had a really good visit. We went to Target to pick up a few necessities, and it was very crowded. People are already out in droves Christmas shopping! It was the same story at Sam's. Fortunately we only picked up a few things there, and were then on our way to Dillons. Yes, they were packed with everyone out shopping for Thanksgiving dinner - just like us! $120 later (just @ Dillons) we made it home. Late in the afternoon we met our friends Cindy and Jerry at El Rodeo for dinner. We had a good visit, and then came home and crashed. I was pretty tired.

Today is a typical Sunday. Corby fixed egg & cheese bagels for breakfast, read the paper, clipped coupons and got laundry started. Now it's time for Chief's FOOTBALL! They're at home against the Arizona Cardinals. C'mon Chiefs. Let's win this thing!

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.
