Hey y'all,

Just dropped in to congratulate my SF GIANTS for winning the World Series...again!  We're going for an every other year thing here.

My family was very nice and put up with me and watching all of the games.  The last game though, I tried to rush home from Church (I was still sociable and yes, I did pay attention.  Daddy preached on keeping God as the center of your life.  So yes, I was convicted when my mind would drift to the game and when I should be focused on the sermon and God being the center of my life. ;)) and made it at the bottom of the 2nd.  My brother came home with me and was down stairs when I screamed, because we were winning.  So he yelled (in a nice fashion, of course) from down stairs "What is it?"  "We're winning  2-0!"  I replied. "What inning?"  he said.  "Bottom of 2nd."
We're family.  We always find a way to communicate. And I hope we always will. :) No.  It's not always in the form of raised voices, only when he's downstairs and we're upstairs and we don't use our phones.

So we're all sitting in the Living Room watching this nerve-wrecking game.  My sister and I slinging our orange cloths around.  Well, I had an orange bandanna and my sis an orange washcloth.  Hey, whatever works, right?  I was decked out in black and orange of course, with my SF earrings, that sis got me and my Giants jacket that my Grandpa gave me that was his, back in the day.  

Well, I'm sure you're not interested in a play by play of how we watched the World Series, so I'll cut it short.  WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)





Have a great day!
SMILE, GOD LOVES YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cover Art 
Irene Hannon

Kate Marshall has spent the last 3 years putting her life back together after losing her husband and son in a boating accident.  But her world is suddenly turned upside down again, when she sees a boy in the mall that resembles her son so much that she is convinced he is her son.  When the police do not believe her story, she turns to a Private Investigation Firm for help.  

Connor Sullivan is the PI that is assigned to Kate Marshall's case.  At the beginning he has his doubts about the credibility of Kate's story.  As he starts to investigate, Connor finds more and more evidence to confirm Kate's suspicions.  

So if the boy is really Kate's son, then what exactly did happen on the boat 3 years ago?  

I thoroughly enjoyed Irene Hannon's latest book.  She keeps your interest from beginning to end.  You will not want to put this book down.  If you love mystery, excitement, adventure with a hint of romance, then this is the book for you.

The Mason Jar 
"The Mason Jar"
James Russel Lingerfelt

Clayton Fincannon, Finn, has a heart for others, He wants to help the less fortunate as much as he can.  While taking college classes, Finn meets the love of his life.  A woman who shares his passion for helping others.  They spend lots of time together getting to know each other and falling in love.  But when Eden leaves the college without a real good-by, Finn doesn't know what to do.  

He falls into a deep depression and tries to find happiness and purpose from other means.  He spends the next decade depressed, lonely, and trying to find a purpose in his life.  

Will Finn ever find out what happened to Eden?  Will he spend the rest of his life depressed?

The book did not live up to my expectation.  There were several things that I did not agree with.  There was a lot of drinking, smoking, and innuendos.  There were also several inconsistencies within the book.   For instance Eden's name was never changed to protect her identity.  Also, I felt like the letters in the mason jar between Finn and his grandfather were underrated.  The mason jar letters are what intrigued me to begin with and the reason I was interested in the book.  Over all "The Mason Jar" is a book for light reading, if you have nothing else to do.

A good mystery read without all of the gory details.  This book was written with just a hint of romance to keep it interesting.
