Some Things — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Some Things" by Kip Moore. The video, which was just released, was shot in Maui. Moore lived there before he went to Nashville. Folks in Maui are still recovering and Moore is using this video to help raise funds. Hope you enjoy!
The Last Devil to Die by Richard Osman

The Last Devil to Die — Latest Read

My latest read was The Last Devil to Die by Richard Osman. This continues to be an engaging series even if the bounds of believability are stretched. There were some poignant scenes in this story which will certainly tug at your heartstrings.

Scorpion Strike — Latest Read

My latest read was Scorpion Strike by John Gilstrap. This is the tenth book in the Jonathan Grave Thriller series. This one has a slightly different spin because Jonathan Grave is the one being rescued.
Africa by Toto

Africa — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Africa" by Toto. This song was released in October 1982. The song's "storyline" is kind of a mishmash, but it has culturally endured. I was living in Houston when this was released. The month this song was released Epcot opened at Disney, Sony shipped the first commercial CD player, and the musical Cats opened on Broadway.
Resurrection Walk by Michael Connelly

Resurrection Walk — Latest Read

My latest read was Resurrection Walk by Michael Connelly. This is the latest release in Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer series. It also does feature Harry Bosch. It does follow Connelly's proven formula for his novels. It was an ok read, but really nothing memorable.
Death at Paradise Palms

Death at Paradise Palms

My latest read was Death at Paradise Palms by Steph Broadribb. This is the second book in Broadribb's The Retired Detectives Club series. This is very much a "Father Brown-Sister Boniface" style story, so it's a quick, easy read.

Everything’s Gonna Be Alright

This Friday's song is "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" by David Lee Murphy. It has been a couple of pretty tough months for our family. We did get to bring my mother-in-law Aida home from her second hospitalization in two months this past Sunday, so maybe "everything's gonna be alright."

In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead

My latest read was "In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead" by James Lee Burke. This is book six in the Dave Robicheaux series. This story is structured like many of the earlier Robicheaux stories, but Burke adds an engaging phycological/spiritual aspect to this story.
