A Fine Monday In May

Why yes, it is one of those Mondays. Why do you ask?

Okay, since it’s early, I can’t really say that today is going to be that kind of Monday. I did miss a boat-load of money this weekend. Dang. I should have gone somewhere to lay a bet on the Kentucky Derby. I would have picked Justify, Good Magic, and Audbile. Trifecta! Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket, see if the gambling gods will still smile on me.

In other news, I listened to a totally awesome book. I even marked it as one of the best books of the year–a Gothic mystery by Simone St. James titled THE BROKEN GIRLS. If that genre floats your boat, you need to read this book. Or listen to it. The narrator was fantastic. I was in the middle of a relisten of Kristen Ashley’s Chaos MC series in preparation of reading her 1001 Nights novella, ROUGH RIDE, and the next full novel in the series, WILD LIKE THE WIND coming in July. I can’t freaking believe I have to wait until July and if Kristen doesn’t explain the end of ROUGH RIDE I will have to go by the dang book in print so I can slam it against the wall. Just sayin’. Other than the very ending of ROUGH RIDE, it was a great novella. Enjoyed the hell out of it. But the EEEEeeeeNNNNNnnnnDDDDD!!! Now I’m doing a relisten to Joanna Wylde’s Reapers MC series because there’s a 1001 Nights novella set in that world waiting on my Kindle.

My Cards are (or are close) to leading the NL Central. Crazy. Sadly, Yadi Molina took a foul tip in Saturday’s game and will be out a month after having surgery yesterday on the traumatic hematoma caused by that 102 mph foul tip. He took it in the groin. *shudder*

There are only two more episodes of LUCIFER left in this season. Man, he and Chloe are breakin’ my heart this season. He was such a jerk when the season started and now…now… *flail* And then there’s LIVE PD.

Digger’s story keeps getting twisty-turny and I end up having to backtrack. There’s a lot more to this story than I originally thought and it was pretty twisted to begin with. I keep waiting for him to make me cry. It’s gonna happen. Just a matter of time.

And that’s all the news that’s fit to print at the moment. There was some extended family sadness over the weekend and the compassion in my daughter puts tears in my eyes and pride in my heart. Life can get complicated. And sad and unexpected, but then it goes on. How is your life going today?

  1. Don’t look at me, man. I had My Boy Jack to win and a side bet on Lonely Sailor. (All in my head of course.) Ouch, poor Yadier. I read a book that hasn’t been released yet, so that’ll have to wait to talk about. Pretty much only watching Live PD and Unforgotten on Masterpiece with any regularity. Oh, and vet shows. Love me some Dr. Pol and Supervet. And I’ve started watching Animal PD, but it just pisses me off. Can’t wait to read your Digger story! So sorry for Only’s loss. :hugs:

    Life here is pretty okay. Waiting on the mail to arrive so I can go run errands. Other than that, no big plans for the day. Editing. Must do editing.

      Live PD folks have a new show coming out soon, on Monday nights, following just the female cops they follow. I’ll definitely be checking it out. And yeah, beyond college baseball/softball, Cards baseball, I’m pretty much Lucifer and Live PD. Oh, and all the game warden shows but new episodes are rare. LOL

      Writing. I must do writing. I got involved in an audio book. :/

Got something to say?
