Busy Saturday!

We had a busy day...

Kaitlin went to work for a few hours, so Corby, Brandon and I went to see my brother, Mike, and see if Corby could figure out why his truck was over-heating. After looking everything over, Corby determined that the radiator probably needed flushed, as it was full of dirt and sludge. He also told Mike that he needed oil and a new air filter. Hopefully that will fix the problem.

We went on over to Sam's, and picked up a few things that we needed. They were pretty busy, but we got in and out of there in a reasonable amount of time.

Since Brandon is hoping to move out soon, we headed over to Slumberland for a look at their furniture. Kaitlin met us there. He found a pretty nice couch for $799, but today was the last day of the sale. Since he hasn't settled on an apartment yet, he had nowhere to store it. Putting it in our garage for a week or longer is probably not a good thing as Sugar would probably use it/tear it up!

Made a quick stop at Target and then headed home to unload our goodies and grab a bite to eat. Then it was off to Dillons to do our grocery shopping.

It was after 3:30 before we got home. Kaitlin wanted to go to Red Robin for dinner. It's not one of my favorite places, so Corby and Brandon went with her.

Now we are watching the Chiefs preseason game, and they are already down 7-0 to the St. Louis Rams early in the first quarter. They won their first preseason game last week, so hopefully they can win this one too!

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.
