It was Monday…..yesterday

This week I have been sewing a lot. I did finish Still Missing. It was one of those books I sort of wish I had not read. Entertaining enough, but …..ugh, I hated the ending.
I started on Cimmaron Rose, recommended by the same friend who recommended Water for Elephants. She reads a lof of James Burke, so when I found him at our local library, I added him to my list. So far I am enjoying it. It is set in Texas, where my father was born. I have only visited Texas twice, once at age 5 and once at age 16. We were driving in the pouring down Texas rain straining to hear the radio and Nixon resigning. Yes that is the last time I was in Texas. I was in the back seat and my parents were in the front. We had driven from California to Kansas City, Missouri for my older brother’s first marriage. We took the opportunity to drive down through Oklahoma and on to Texas to visit my parents relatives. I was the only one with them, being the youngest child.
Anyway the library was closed yesterday, so I need to go the minute I finish Cimmaron Rose because it is my last book from my last trip. Need to start a new list of books to check out!
