It's been over a week since I posted a blog excuses, just lazy I guess!

We enjoyed last weekend. Went over to my sister's to help her with some computer issues, ran the kids to Chick-Fil-A (don't understand the fascination with their food!), ran to Kohl's so Kaitlin could try to find a backpack for school (she didn't) and then did our grocery shopping at Dillons - all of this in some glorious rain which we so desperately needed!

Corby, Kaitlin and I went to Abuelo's for an early dinner after our busy day. It's one of my favorite places to eat, and they had some new things on the menu, so we had a good dinner.

Sunday, Kaitlin and I went to Target to pick up a few things. I bought some birthday cards for upcoming family birthdays and a few other non-necessities. HA!

My big purchase on Sunday was a Samsung Galaxy tablet from Amazon. I only got the 7" one. Decided I didn't need to spend the money on the bigger one. I let Kaitlin order it for me since she gets 2-day free delivery!

It's been kind of a crazy week at work. My assistant, who is about to be a grandmother, has been up-and-down with anticipation for her new grandson to arrive. Her daughter may be in labor right now, but since it's her first child, she's not sure. LOL! I'm excited for the whole family!

Corby is looking forward to his vacation next week. We're all off on Monday - Labor Day - but he is off the rest of the week. He truly needs it, since he's really burned out from working so much overtime the last few months!

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.
