Did anyone watch Castle last night?

The tag was part of a challenge in my graphics group. All we got was the cardboard frame. I don't know what took me to the elepants, but here they are. Hope it is someone's taste. LOL.

OK for you reader's of mystery novels, this was very cool. I watched the premier of 'Castle' on ABC last night. The story is about a writer who is asked to help look into crimes that seem to be mimicking his novels. It's kind of a who-done-it with a comedic twist. Anyway, there is a scene with this writer playing poker with some other writers and who is sitting across the table from him but James Patterson. The real James Patterson playing himself. I don't know when I have enjoyed a scene on TV more. The show is a tad silly but I will probably continue to watch in the hopes of another cameo of Mr. Patterson (who is my favorite mystery writer for sure).

*Note to Ken (Bucko)...I finished Scarpetta today and I have to admit, it was pretty good. I guess I was just in a slump from having to interrupt the story for a couple of weeks.*

Since I'm talking about TV, I'm lovin' American Idol so far this year. There is some awesome talent and the twist of having a final 13 instead of 12 was great. So far my faves are the young red-headed gal and the guy with glasses who recently lost his wife. It will be fun watching them get whipped into shape and improve with each week.

I'm also a fan of 'Survivor' and since the new season started while I was living at my daughter's, my 7 yr. old grandson has jumped on board. I laughed out loud when he called me after the show on Thursday night to say he was upset that the bus driver lady (the oldest player) was voted off. She was his favorite but since she's now gone he is rooting for (his words) the pretty blond lady that flirts all the time. What have I started? LOL.

For lack of something to watch on TV on Saturday night, I pulled out my DVD of Robin Williams in 'Patch Adams'. If you haven't seen that movie, it's a must see. It's a true story and Williams does a great job in it. I don't know why I'm on the entertainment trail of thought, and I have certainly rambled enough so, until next time...

Hugs, Joyce

  1. Love your tags........thanks.

    I watched Castle last night too. I also watched Dancing with the Stars.

    Hugs, Rose

  2. Castle looked cute with the previews but didn't catch it last night; I try to limit what I watch on TV except for LOST; have to watch that LOL (I'm so pathetic)

    cute tag!!

    hope all is well Joyce


  3. Like Betty I really limit how much TV I watch. However, I made an exception last night and not only watched Dancing with the Stars (I did that while working) I also watched Castle and I rather enjoyed the show. :-)

    I haven't watched American Idol but, now you have my curiosity up. I might have to turn it on while I'm working! Generally I only allow myself 1 hour of TV a day to really watch. Sometimes I will turn on the TV for noise when I'm home alone and I'm working on wedding photos. I don't feel so alone. However, those shows are more of a hit and miss on how much I actually get the show.

    I like your tag!


  4. cute tag!
    i watch survivor too. have since it first started.

  5. I love the elephant tag. I missed Castle. I wanted to watch it darn it!!

  6. We watch AI, too, and we like the same people you do, along with Adam, the young rocker guy. I'm liking the show this season, except I'm not a fan of the new judge!

    "Patch Adams" is one of Ken's favorite movies, and we watched it not too long ago. We had tickets for Robin Williams' appearance here in April, but he's postponed his tour due to the heart surgery he has to have. I'm sure he'll be okay, and we hope we can go to his rescheduled date in fall.

    Hugs, Beth

  7. I'm hooked on the Science Channel,ID, Cook and HLN. I do watch the local news in the eve for about 15 mins. Tag is really cute :).....

  8. Very cute tag.
    I only watched bits and pieces of Castle. I would have loved to have seen the cameo with James Patterson. I am an avid fan of his.
    I got a good laugh hearing about your grandsons reaction to Survivor..lol

  9. Oh no! I missed it, and I had meant to watch it. I guess I'll have to try to catch the rerun. I really like James Patterson and would loved to have seen him.

  10. Hello Miss Joyce,

    So glad that you stopped in an good to hear from you. I have not been in a blogging mood lately but since the shooting I've really tried to keep myself distracted from all that is going on. By the way did you know that "J.T." that is on survivor is from our town of Samson! We have really been watching this time and he has really did good. Thank's for your kind comments and encourgment.

    God Bless


  11. I saw Castle...and loved it. I love Robin Williams...now...must see that movie, after your review! Hugs and love,

  12. I'm not a big fan of Patterson, but I dig the fact that he did a cameo. I wonder if Robert B Parker, my fave, has done the same?
