It's the weekend and it is back in the 60's here, but very gray out. We are supposed to get thunder storms this afternoon and tomorrow. Can't say I mind that too much as long as I don't have to get out in it. There is nothing like a good storm and a good book and a lazy day.
Speaking of good books, I finally finished "Cross Country" by James Patterson. I can't remember who asked about it but here is what I thought. There is just no way Patterson can write a bad book. This one is no exception. It's full of action and surprises and, as usual, a surprise ending. The only complaint I have about it is that most of the story takes place in Africa with Alex Cross hunting a very bad serial killer. To me that takes away from the whole Alex Cross family thing. I feel like I know his children and his grandmother, not to mention his best friend and current girlfriend. How funny is that. That group plays a very, very small part in this story. That being said, yes I liked the book and it held my attention right to the end. It is, of course, a must read for all you Patterson fans. Now I'm reading "Scarpetta" by Patricial Cornwell. It's a pretty thick book and I'm a slow reader soooo. BTW, Patterson has two more books coming out. One in February and one is April. The April one is a new "Woman's Murder Club" book. I have already pre-ordered both.
Yesterday my daughter and I went and had our hair cut. For me it was just another haircut but for Vicki it was the end of the long hair look. They pulled her hair back in a pony tail and cut it off for "Locks of Love". If you are not familiar with this organization...they make hair pieces for cancer children. Anyway, she loves her new doo and so do I. Her goal for this year is to get back into shape and remake her look. The haircut was a great start and she looks beautiful. Of course, I'm prejudice. lol.
If you missed CBS evening news last night...they did a segment about our elephant sanctuary. It was the story of Tara the elephant and Bella the doggie and their great attachment to one another. It was a wonderful piece and I'm so proud to be a contributor to the sanctuary. You can read about it at www.elephants.com.
