Saturday Musings

We had a fairly lazy day.

* Went to The Beacon for breakfast this morning. My choice? A half order of biscuits & gravy w/hash browns. The Beacon has THE best hash browns in Wichita!

* Grocery shopping at Dillons. Spent less than $80, and that's rare in this household! Even bought pork chops & ground chuck...

* Corby is going to make chicken and noodles tomorrow - one of my favorite meals. Okay, it's not really a summertime meal, but it sounded good!

* Sage Stallone, 36 year old son of Sylvester Stallone, was found dead yesterday. Rumor has it that it may have been an overdose, but that hasn't been confirmed.

* Brandon and Kaitlin went to Starlite Drive-In tonight. They are seeing The Amazing Spiderman (loved it!) and The Avengers. Brandon has seen both of the movies before, and Kaitlin has seen the Avengers. I doubt they will stay for the third movie. I wouldn't even be able to make it through two!

* The new Batman movie comes out in a few weeks. I'm sure the kids will go see it, and I would like to also. Maybe not the first weekend though.

* Finally got the refund from mom's secondary health insurance. That only took 4 months! But at least it adds to the funds that we are collecting so we can bury her in the plot next to dad. We will have a garage sale in Sept. or Oct. (when Park City has the city-wide fall sale) so we can raise the rest of the money we need.

* I am currently reading "Criminal" by Karin Slaughter - one of my favorite authors.

I guess that's it for this Saturday, July 14, 2012...

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.
