AND...Happy Birthday, Rye.
Not wanting to be out of commission indefinitely, I ended up buying a new computer. I got a Microsoft Surface.Has anyone used one before? I didn't even know Microsoft made computers. So far so good....And it's pretty:)
If you watch Netflix or Prime, what's your favorite series?
Ours: Longmire and Blacklist (starring James Spader). I love James Spader. He brings the same eccentricity and dry humor to the Blacklist series that he brought to Boston Legal.
I am not a happy gardener. Those darn voles ate nearly all my tulip bulbs.
What's your favorite series? How are your critters? Flowers? Is your computer behaving?
*The little two year old is starting chemo next month. All prayers and positive energy are appreciated.
Did everyone reset their clocks. No problem for us. Our bedroom clock resets itself...a week early. Why? I have no idea.
The amaryllis is also confused instead of blooming at the Christmas season it shot for Easter.
AND another floral oddity. A little reminiscent of a black sheep in a herd of white.
AND the first violets of Spring.
AND the garden wildlife.
AND last but not least, a delightful mail surprise from Rockin Ro. Thanks, Ro!
I've got nothing today except grumbles about the internet and cable, so just for fun here's an optical illusion pic. Oh yes, we did get our second Covid vaccine. Whew.
What critters do you see?
AND....What are your thoughts on the interview with Meghan Markle?
Whiner or legitimate complaints?

AND...February/March Reviews in no particular order.
I've read several of Ms. Cronin's works
and enjoyed each and every one, but this particular set of shorts and poetry is
definitely my favorite. When it opened with a story about artificial
intelligence not allowing the protagonist to order sweets because she was on a
diet, I knew I was in for a treat. The characters are warm and believable. The
world building spot on. Before you know it, you're in the middle of each and
every story. So grab a cuppa, some cookies, put your feet up and enjoy. Amazon.
This story is a remarkable blend of an
edge-of-your seat crime thriller and a heartwarming romance. The author nailed
police procedure and her research on the subject shines through. Her characters
are well-developed and her descriptions detailed. I especially loved the
epilogue. It ties the story up with a bright red bow. I'm looking forward to
more page-turners by K.A. Woodford. Amazon.
Science goes awry in this zombie thriller.
A virus is accidentally released that
makes people violent and once they die turns them into the undead. While this
isn’t my normal genre, I have found that the category isn’t that important as
long as the story is well-written and this one definitely is. It’s obvious the
author has a medical background and this knowledge adds layers to the story. NIGHT
ZERO is definitely a well-crafted tale. If you like horror or zombies, get
ready to keep turning pages. Just leave the light on. Amazon.
