Books Make Great Gifts

Posted by mcm0704 on December 6, 2019 |

My whole family are avid readers, and we often gift each other with books, especially at this holiday season. It’s an extra bonus when we can get an autographed book, and the ones I have reside on a special shelf in my bookcase. When I moved almost two years ago now, I had to downsize […]

Black Friday Shopping?

Posted by mcm0704 on November 29, 2019 |

Happy day after Thanksgiving everyone. Are you as stuffed as the turkey was and lounging in front of the television, not venturing out to the stores this Black Friday? I’m not stuffed, but I’m still not going out. I’ll be sharing time with my daughter-in-law putting up her Christmas tree. Then later going to my […]

My First Bouchercon

Posted by mcm0704 on November 5, 2019 |

What an experience! The Sunday before Bouchercon 2019 started I could hardly walk. I had horrible muscle spasms in my back, and I was so afraid I’d have to cancel out, but a couple of days of rest and some good meds later, I was set to go. I still have the Trigeminal nerve pain […]
