Great Weekend!!!!!

Kaleb is home for the weekend! YAY! He got home early Friday evening. The kids went out to Hamburger Heroes for dinner and then the boys went to a movie with friends.

Had a lot of fun on Saturday. Got up early and had breakfast at The Beacon. They have the best breakfast in town! From there we went and visited mom and then went to Derby to visit Rhonda in rehab. She continues to do well.

We finally made it out to Tanganikya Wildlife Park in Goddard. It was a beautiful day, mid 70's with a mild breeze, and the park is beautiful! The baby tigers were precious, but because they are behind glass the pictures aren't that great.

We saw exotic monkeys, giraffes, rhinos, bunnies, turtles, alpacas, lemurs and white tigers. The twins hand fed the alpacas and lemur.

It's a little expensive, but worth seeing the animals up close and personal. I imagine the park will continue to grow and get more and more animals.


We also did grocery shopping at Leeker's and then watched the Wildcats beat Texas Tech! GREAT game and it was fun watching it with Kaleb.

Corby put a new alternator in his car this morning. Kaitlin fixed me and the boys pancakes and bacon for breakfast. Yummy! We went to Atwood's and got Kaleb a new Carhartt coat for the winter, and then went to Sam's to pick up a few necessities. Now it's time to relax before dinner. Corby is fixing chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.

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.
