Such a fine kitty

Bubbie went through a spell where I did not see him sleeping like this very often but now he is back in fine form.  He still makes me laugh so often.  When I sit in the swing now, he is showing his age.  He gets up and sits beside me.  A few years ago, you could not have paid him to get up there and relax with me whether I swung or not.  Now he gets up there and will go to sleep if I am there for little while.

We stopped in Books-a-Million a bit back and I picked up three books.  All used.  I did not know they had started selling used books.

The first that caught my eye to seriously consider was The Kentuckians by Janet Holt Giles.  You know how some authors you can almost bet money you will like their books.  Well,  not so for me with Giles.  I have read two or three that I really, really liked but others I have picked up at the library I could not get into.  So, I picked this up to read a few lines.  By the end of the first page, I knew I wanted it.  I did read it right away.

Another I got is A Place Near Home  by Mike Lunsford.   He is from nearby Parke County and his columns have appeared in the Terre Haute Tribune Star.  I also got another one by him titled The Off Season .

Anyway, I got all three books for less than $20 and am quite happy with them.  I am currently picking up A Place near home and reading a couple of the stories every day...sometimes more.  They are feel good stories about real people.  The kind that make you feel better for having read them.

Here you can see a list of his books.......and read about the author HERE....

We have been watching a show called Shetland and I am going to get off here for now till we can watch the final episode of one season.  This is one show that sure is full of intrigue and that keeps you guessing till the very end.  It is set on the Shetland is murder mysteries.

I hope you have a good week.
