COFFEE/TEA SHARE SEPTEMBER 23, 2016

If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you to come inside out the wind. Let you select your your drink treat. There are pumpkin muffins for the game this afternoon when Boise State meets Oregon State. The weather has changed this week. A storm is passing through bringing rain and strong winds.Β On my walks around the area you see the leaves are starting to changed. Yellow is the predominant leaf color right now. Yesterday we went breakfast and stopped at our pharmacy for flu and pneumonia shots.

MEMORIES:

One of mine of Boise is the Union Pacific Train Depot. It stood outside of the city limits looking down Capital Blvd toward the state capitol. I remember the trains passing through Boise carrying the Japanese at night. Both the Freedom and Friendship trains stopped at the Boise Depot. The Freedom Train was to remind Americans of the horrors of war. The Friendship train collected food to send to France and Itlay after World Two. Today the Depot is no longer in used and the deport is in the center of Boise. It still looks down Capitol Blvd, but many other buildings now dwarfed the capitol. The depot now belongs to the city parks and recreation department. The golden blocks were sold to buy the depot.

There is family history for me as my paternal grandfather’s nurseysupplied the plants for the original garden. I board the CITY OF LOS ANGELS in 1953 to take me to Chicago to complete my training as a lab technician. This was my first trip out of Idaho.

If we were having coffee/tea, I would sure my feeling about my blog. This week I reached 450 followers and 46 additional at Tumblr.

A BIG THANK YOU TO MY FOLLOWERS, VIEWS, LIKES, AND COMMENTS. It made my day and brought on a smile. This blog was an accident and laid dormant for awhile. I decided to learned to use it and enrolled in BLOGGING 101 which later became BLOGGING UNIVERSITY. I made friends and learned how to use the Internet now. I have using the Internet since 1985 when I got my first computer. I preceded to wipe DOS off it the first week. Later one of my brothers and a nephew convinced me to format the hard drive. I am glad I did it as it taught me a lot. The most important thing was if you had a backup, you could recreate most things.

It has been while since I shared pictures of Kato. Here are a few. He is now very happy this morning as he hasn’t his walk. Bob says it is TOO COLD, BUT KATO DOESN’T BELIEVE HIM.

HANDS UP MISS SEETON By Hampton Charles

31556381

I appreciate the Miss Seeton books very much. I am enjoying reading them again. Whenever Miss Seeton is around lookout as hectic time is bound to happen. It is lovely sunshine day and Miss Seeton is enjoying a leisurely stroll through London. A freak thunderstorm occurred to begin her next adventure that includes the Tomato Catsup gang, innkeeper fraud, art forgeries and drugs. Miss Seeton goes merrily on her way not understanding these activities are happening around her. Delphrick and the police are confused by her drawings. The subplots are superbly brought together for the tale. I highly recommend this book, especially for the satire. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Prelude Books through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

A KILLER’S GUIDE TO GOOD WORKS By Shelley Costco

30375243

The theft of ancient relic from Monastery in Norfolk, England stretches to New York City and Val Cameron. Val BFF, Adrian is MURDER shortly after returning from a visit to her brother, Dale, a monk in Norfolk. Adrian called Val and invited her to see the best species of a plant. The investigation will take Vale and Dale on a journey through the art world before a surprising answer. I thought the plot creative and innovative. The format is not a favorite one as I find it difficult to follow the story when told through several individuals. Often there were unnecessary words and descriptions that added nothing to the story. Disclosure: I received a free copy from HENERY PRESS through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

THE WOLFES WIDOW By Victoria Abbott

21798824

THE DOORBELL RANG is the name of my favorite Nero Wolfe mystery Tand it is the beginning of this story. The book is based on Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe books. Jordan uses Archie’s techniques to handle the happenings in her life. A stranger is at the door of the Van Alst’s mansion. Shortly after, Jordan is fired and is given four hours to move her belongings from her cushy apartment. Who is this stranger, what hold does she have over Vera? Are the police corrupt? Jordan must find out by alone as her usual help has gone missing. The next two books are high on my TBR pile.

THE SAYERS SWINDLE By Victoria Abbott

15810882

I like the unusual settings of this series very much. The book’s background is determined by a historical mystery author. The characters are well developed and have become friends. I wanted to know what is happening in their lives. Jordan Bingham has been hired by a wealthy recluse, Vera Van Alst, whose only passion is for books. Vera’s first editions of Dorothy L. Sayer were stolen and sold to an unknown buyer. Almost everything in the book is an illusion and there a lot of surprises throughout the tale. Jordan must find the missing books to keep her job and the lives of friend and herself. I highly recommend this book.
