Typical busy Saturday

Saturday is our day for errand running, and today was no different.

We always start at Quik Trip, filling up my car w/gas. From there we headed west to Walmart on N. Maize Rd. Time to shop for my sister's birthday (tomorrow) and my nephew's birthday (Aug. 31), as the family is meeting at Olive Garden for lunch tomorrow to celebrate. From there we went to Dillons Super Store, not our normal Dillons, but since we were out west...I'm really not a fan of their super stores. I prefer our normal store at 37th & Woodlawn, but we did manage to get out of there without spending $100! Brandon called when we were on the way home and wanted us to meet him at HuHot for lunch. So after bringing the groceries home we headed to HuHot, at 21st & Rock. We had a very nice lunch AND visit, and then Brandon went home to continue packing for his move on Wednesday.

Corby & I watched a couple of episodes of NCIS from season 10. I'm down to 5 episodes left in order to be ready for season 11. I am definitely hooked on this show now! I love all the actors on the show, and am wondering how they will write out Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) as she leaves the show early in the 11th season.

Now we are watching the K-State football game against Lousiana. They are up 20-3 at the half. I hope they win, since Kaleb is at the game, and it was 102 degrees at game time (5:30pm).

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.
