Veteran's Day

A heartfelt thank you to all those Veterans out there who have kept our country safe for so many years. And special thanks to my own veteran. He knows who he is.

I read a lot. I seldom pick a book that I do not finish. Oddly, the last two in my 'stack' I have not been able to get through. Faye Kellerman's "Mercedes Coffin", I could not finish. It just went so slow and the detectives seemed to go over and over the same thing again and again. It reminded me of a committee meeting I attended today. We just went over things again and again until there was no interest in discussing it further.

I made it to about chapter 4 of "The Mephisto Club" by Tess Gerritsen before I gave up knowing any more would give me bad dreams. I did finish Kathy Reich's "Devil Bones," although it is so very technical, I skipped a lot.

I have read "Conspiracy of Silence" by Martha Powers for Bookloons.com. I will be posting a review there soon. I will let you know when I send it in. Currently, I'm reading "Mr. Jefferson's Women" also for Bookloons. Believe me, after reading much of Jefferson's philosophy about women and blacks, he would have a cat should he have seen the recent Democrat and Republican tickets for president and vice president.

By the way, Sarah Palin says she didn't order $150,000 worth of clothes for herself and her family on the RNC dime and I believe her. I enjoyed her interview on Fox News Channel last night.

And there you have my blog for November 11. Good night and Good luck.

Pat, this is wonderful. I'm glad you finally decided to go for it. Now when you send something out or get a sale, you'll have LOTS to talk about! - Shirley
