Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Terrific Tuesday

White Sleeper and Eyewall . . . .

Hosted at Bibliophile by the Sea
Every Tuesday, she'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of her current read. Why don't you join us?

The cadre of black ATF Yukons was spread under a pair of white pines overlooking the wide, rushing Salmon River. The river was also referred to as the River of No Return. Most locals didn't know the story behind the alternate moniker, but names were a peculiar thing in Idaho. Back in the 1800's, when Congress was considering making it a state, a lobbyist named George Willing suggested the Indian name Idaho. It stuck but it was later discovered that the name was a prank by Mr. Willing. The word "Idaho" had no meaning. Mr Willing, however, sealed his place in history by providing the only state name that meant absolutely nothing.

just a little background first....daughter slipped out to see a guy the parents don't know about before calling her dad's cell to come pick her up.....

"Daddy?"

"Yes."

"I'm scared."

"Don't be Pumpkin. I'll give you a pass on this one."

"No, it's not that."

"What then?"

"The ocean's in the yard and it's like washing over the street."

Well that is informative. Not sure it would draw me into the story. I'll have to read a bit more about this one as I am not familiar with the book.

Hope you enjoy it and thanks for participating.
