Hey y'all! Yes I'm still alive. I have been pretty absent from the webz this week. Sorry, I'm in vacation mode. I will be returning home next week so we'll see if I can't get back into some kind of groove then.
On the farm, we've been involved with kittehs. My daughter, the cat whisperer, found three tiny little ones in the barn that were very sick and had been abandoned by their mother. She attempted to nurse them back to health, but to no avail. My dad finally caved and took them to the vet but two died. (Sad face.) The one seems to be on the mend. Then we got two free black kittehs from an ad in the paper, and after two days, one disappeared and we assumed that the coyotes (which run wild around these parts) ate it. It was spotted however about a half mile from the house up a tree. My dad borrowed a bucket truck from a neighbor and my MOTHER went up in it and saved the poor thing. Lord almighty. My daughter has been getting driving lessons as well. Not involved in that one. And the kids have been going to the shooting range, learning the art of the firearm with my dad. Not involved in that one either.
I have spent this past weekend with high school friends. We do this every year, and is therapy. We drink, we eat, we get together with other high school friends, we act like fools. We went book shopping and had a long discussion about how one of us (Julie) has a serious crush on Joshilyn Jackson and wants to date her. Or at least have her children. I get that, I do. We also took this opportunity to see Magic Mike. Godawful movie plot, but SMOKING hot. Like, it took an hour to get my heart rate back under a heart attack range. So here is a little something for you ladies to enjoy this morning.
You are welcome. My reading is just off-the-map slow. I THINK I might be able to get Karin Slaughter's "Criminal" finished on audio before Tuesday, but is going to take some work, like lock myself in the bathroom for a few hours kinda work. HOWEVER. This installment in the series is the best yet. You can't miss it if you like Will Trent et al. I'm also about 35% through Gillian Flynn's "Sharp Objects" in print and it is quite good.
So I'm off again. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to catching back up with you later next week!
