Just Ramblin'

Okay, it's blogging day and I have no bright ideas so I'm gonna do a little ramblin'.

My STUPID cable box screwed up tonight and didn't record NCIS.  I was really looking forward to watching it.  Guess I'll have to catch it on line later.

Tried out two new shows so far.  Chase last night and Detroit 187 tonight.  Disappointed in Chase - sounded interesting but the dialog was lousy.  Detroit 187 I'll give another watch.  Have you seen any good new shows yet?

Brandi's eye is still hanging in there. (Now there's a mental image.) Next vet trip is Thursday morning. Got to take Chance, her adopted brother, on this trip, too. Re-check exam for his congestive heart failure. Someday we'll have to break it to him that he's sick. Those squirrels he treed this morning didn't seem to notice.

Don't you love this picture?  Look at the dog's eyes.  And, no, that's not Brandi and me.

I think I've come up with a way to trim some weight from my chubby WIP and heighten the suspense on one of the threads at the same time.  Have to play with it before I'll know for sure.  Wish me luck.

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday.  Happy Birthday, Beautiful.  I miss you.

It was 92 here today.  Don't you wish pool closings were tied to the weather and not the calendar?

I should have paid more attention to that e-mail I got from the library a couple days ago. Now I've got a half dozen books overdue. And they're going to be more so because I'm not finished reading one of them yet.  Oh, well - a good read is worth a fine.

So, what's new wih you?

Unwriting progress: From the original 150,000 words down to 111,618.

I'm currently enjoying: Weeding Out Trouble by Heather Webber (Yes, this is an oldie and it's overdue at the library.  Sorry, Heather.)

Did you watch Hawaii Five-O? This is one show to keep. I have to catch up on my other shows that I missed.

Glee was good last night.

I saw Raising Hope - stupid show.

Not much else going on around here.

No. Bad call on my part. Recorded Chase instead of Five-O. (I was watching Castle.) I'll catch Five-O next week.

Lost Glee, too, during the same cable box malfunction that lost NCIS. Argh!

Thanks, I won't waste time checking out Raising Hope.

Thanks for coming by.

Enjoyed your ramblin'. Some days it's just good do that. The only show I've watched was Castle. Really enjoyed it. Looking forward to Bones coming back.

Hope all goes well at the vet. Take we took Brisco in for his annual shots.

Ref: And, no, that's not Brandi and me.

LOL! I better not show this my husband. He'll probably tell everyone that's me.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Hi Mason. Thanks for dropping by. I'm a big Castle fan, too. It's my Monday treat.

Is that Brisco in your profile picture?

Linda Leszczuk said...

Hey, Maria - I was wondering if anyone was going to comment on that picture. Cracked me up.

Beautiful pic of your mom. God Bless moms. Without them we would wander aimlessly.

Thank you, Stephen. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out. I lost her four and a half years ago and miss her every single day.
